Beautiful destinations in Germany, Austria and Switzerland
A holiday in Austria, Germany or Switzerland is not only of interest to travellers who value security - the three countries also have much to offer off the beaten track. The cities abound with cultural treasures such as the beautiful old town of Geneva, multiculturalism in Berlin, outstanding cuisine in Vienna as well as countless opportunities for going out. There is no room for boredom, the cities are dynamic, cosmopolitan and in constant motion. There are also many other cities in Germany, Austria and Switzerland apart from Berlin that are well worth a visit, for example historic Dresden, Gmunden in Austria and the picturesque town of Lugano.
If you prefer nature or an active holiday instead, there is something to be found for every taste. Germany also has many other interesting places to offer besides the big cities. Beautiful holiday destinations in Germany for nature lovers include the North Sea with its unique mudflats, the Harz Mountains and Saxon Switzerland with its superlative hiking trails.
When speaking of active holidays, we also need to mention skiing holidays in Austria. The many well-developed ski resorts in Austria attract over 40 million visitors each year. But it is not only the winter holidays which make living in Austria so attractive. A holiday at an Austrian lake such as Spechtensee is possible all year round.
