Globe Trekker’s Megan McCormick and Justine Shapiro set out on a journey to look beyond the stereotypes and seek out the real Germany.

Megan’s journey begins in Berlin, where she visits one of the last remaining sections of the Berlin Wall, takes a tour of the city’s WWII sites and explores Kreuzberg, an ethnic Turkish neighborhood. She ventures out along the “Romantic Road” passing through some of the prettiest towns in Bavaria, including Dinkelsbuhl and Rothenburg. She visits the extraordinary Neuschwanstein Castle, before heading on to Friedrichshafen to fly in a Zeppelin. Megan’s journey ends with a visit to Dortmund’s famous Love Parade.

Justine’s travels begin in rural Lower Saxony, with an overnight stay at a “hay hotel” near the village of Landeloh. She continues on to the island of Sylt, the birthplace of modern German nudism and visits Munich in time for Oktoberfest. Justine ventures on to Berchtesgaden, Hitler’s mountain retreat near the Austrian border and ends her journey with a climbing expedition up Mount Jenner.
