I had the privilege of living in Germany for a year as a teenager. I lived in Augsburg, 40 miles north-west of Munich in Bavaria.
I visited a number of castles and churches all over the country. I was amazed at the beauty held inside each church as my breath was taken away upon entering.
Germany isn't only about beer, but if you want some...this is the place! While you are visiting, might I suggest trying a different beer each time so you can get a good picture of the tastes? Enjoy a brat with your beer as you learn the songs that everyone will chant as time goes on.
Visiting Germany was like walking into a fairy tale book. Castles high up on mountains, the rich forests, walled cities, and the fabled rivers make this country a must see!
