A fantastic opportunity to experience this time-honoured corner of Germany, full of festive tradition and wonderful hospitality. Admire the magnificent architecture, discover an array of cultural delights and revel in the welcoming seasonal atmosphere.
Northern Germany and its coastal region are home to a wealth of medieval towns and cities, rich in history and architectural delights. In the 13th century many of these grew and prospered and became known as the Hanseatic Cities, formed by the Hanseatic League.
Today seven Hanseatic cities, including Hamburg and Lübeck, breathe new life into their former merchant days. Nowadays they are modern and cosmopolitan centres yet still retain a proud sense of identity and a rich maritime past. Inviting shops, restaurants and bars all waiting to tempt you inside are set against a backdrop of beautifully preserved cobbled streets, half-timbered houses and majestic squares.
To complete your discovery of this fascinating corner of Germany, we include a full day tour to Berlin, packed with culture, history and fabulous attractions. From the famous Brandenburg Gate to the historic Reichstag, Checkpoint Charlie and the Boulevard Unter den Linden, there is no shortage of interesting sights. You will also be able to experience the fantastic Christmas Markets, in full festive swing. Explore rows of elaborately decorated stalls loaded with exquisite hand-crafted creations, ranging from wooden puppets to glass ornaments - great gift ideas!
