Enjoy the Christmas Markets in DecemberIf you're visiting Germany in late November or any time during December, make sure to visit the Christmas markets (Weichnachtsmarkt) all around Germany. It does not matter whether you're visiting a small town or a metropolis, visiting a Christmas market is always a great experience!The highlights of the Christmas markets are warming, sweet ice wine (glühwein) and apple fritters (elephant ears)--always a hit during cold weather!

Experience the Wagner Opera Festival Festival in Bayreuth
The Bayreuth Festival takes place every year from late July to August and offers about 30 operas. A "must see" event not only for opera fans but also for anybody who doubts that opera can be fun. You will be converted! Among past directors of the Bayreuth Festival are Daniele Gatti, Peter Schneider, Sebastian Weigle and Christian Thielemann. The tours of the Festspielhaus (opera house) are also exciting because visitors can learn about the special features of the auditorium and explore the rehearsal stages. The Wagner clan (of Richard Wagner fame!) has been responsible for this opera festival since the early 1900's.
Learn about the Berlin Wall in BerlinNo visit to Germany would be complete without a visit to Berlin and no visit to Berlin would be complete without seeing up close the remains of the Berlin Wall. The Berlin Wall was a physical barrier built along the border dividing East and West Berlin by the German Democratic Republic and came to symbolize the Iron Curtain between Western and Eastern Europe. The Berlin Wall fell in 1989 but it can still be found around several places in Berlin. There are remains of the Berlin Wall near Postdamer Platz and the Ostbahnhof.
