Germany
by Sebastian Wagner and Jurgen Henkelmann and Karl-Heinz Raach




Overview -

Germany is a nation spread between rocky cliffs and sand dunes and mountainous Alps in the south, between the Rhine in the west and the Oder in the east, with a cultural heritage as manifold as its scenery.

In over 180 striking photos this book presents all parts of the country with their local sights and customs.The legendary Father Rhine and fairy-tale castles such as Schloss Neuschwanstein take us back to the days of yore. The different periods and architectural styles - from the imperial palaces of Charlemagne, the magnificant edificesof the Romanesque and Gothic to baroque Dresden, Prussian classicism and modern urban constructions in glass and steel - have all helped shape the face of Germany, telling of the county's turbulent history.

Cities such as Weimar and Frankfurt am Main live and breathe their literary past, their great poets Goethe and Schiler seemingly ever present, with Berlin a cultural treasure-trove of theatres and museums.

One of Germany's grand highlights is romantic Heidelberg. Local customs and festivals are also deeply rooted in German tradition, with Munich's Oktoberfest, the revelries at Carnival time and the various religous processions throughout the year, a few of the many examples.
