Other Need-to-Know Information about Germany
Many people assume Germany is all beer and lederhosen, but that is a common misconception! It is actually an incredibly diverse country with gorgeous natural beauty, well-known wines, cosmopolitan cities, and impeccable engineering and manufacturing. This creates a nearly endless collection of motorcycle routes Germany can offer. Northern Germany has the shipping and economic powerhouse of Hamburg, the second busiest port in all of Europe, along with extensive coastline along the Baltic and North Seas. Dusseldorf and Cologne to the west bring fashion and media, along with wine country along the Rhine. The central and southern parts of the country are filled with old growth forests, castles, and quaint villages. Southeastern Germany, around Munich and throughout the state of Bavaria is where you will find beer, lederhosen, and alpine culture! Stuttgart is also located in southern Germany, and is where several major car manufacturers (BMW, Mercedes, VW, etc.) call home. Lastly, there is Berlin; a very international and cosmopolitan city that is matched by few others in the world for its diversity.
From north to south across the country, there is quite a variety of geography. This brings with it a few different climates and weather patterns. The north is impacted by the seas, and generally remains cooler and windy, especially along the coastline. The central and southern portions of the country see four distinct seasons, and as you approach the alps, winters become colder and harsher. Generally, the best times to visit would be late spring through early fall.
Germany is easily accessed from around Europe and beyond. Frankfurt, Munich, and Dusseldorf all have large, high-volume airports. Berlin, Cologne, Hamburg, and Stuttgart are also fairly heavily traveled. Trains easily connect Germany to all neighboring countries, as well as a few non-neighboring countries. No matter where you are traveling from, you should have no problems finding a plane or train to Germany! Germany is part of the European Union and a member of the Schengen Agreement, making access easy for many citizens of other countries; all you will need is a valid passport. Citizens of the EU, other Schengen Agreement countries, and others like the United States and Canada can stay for up to 90 days without a visa.
