How to get around

Getting to Germany holiday homes

Germany is easily accessed from various cities in Europe and all over the world. Many smaller cities have their own airports, while larger cities have large airports for international flights.

Once in your destination city, you can use bikes, buses, ferries and hire cars to get to and from your holiday rental to nearby landmarks and attractions.

Food & drink 

Sample delicacies in Germany

Though German food may conjure up images of sausage and sauerkraut, authentic German foods are pork-based and include many potato dishes and hearty stews. Depending on where in the country you dine, you may also find fresh seafood dishes and locally-grown produce. Sauerbraten, a roast-beef stew with hearty meat, vinegar and various spices, often comes with boiled potatoes and red cabbage. Schweinshaxe, a ham hock or pork knuckle slow-roasted until the meat falls off the bone, is another popular Bavarian dish. You should also try Rinderroulade, a beef roll with slices of bacon, onions, pickles and mustard finished in red wine. Whatever your craving, you’ll find plenty of authentic German dishes in restaurants and eateries across the country, all within reach of your holiday rental.
