This particular serie of touristic books is called "Voir" or in English "See". And indeed in this book there are tons of photos, plans and it's a very visual book. It talks about every aspects of the country from history, culture, food, customs, geography, etc. It contains as well a few maps of cities and addresses like for restaurants. The book is fully in color with glazed paper, the book is a bit too heavy but at the same time it's not too big, obviously it's the glazed paper that is making i ...more
I can really recommend it! One of the best travel guides, especially if one is interested in history. It includes many cutaways, floor plans and reconstructions of the castles and other historic buildings, plus street maps of all the fascinating cities and towns, and region-by-region; very many detailed illustrations and fantastic photos. :)
Well, this a book u need if u wanna goto germany especially Berlin..u gonna need this!
Pretty good. I use it weekly, since I live in Germany at the moment.
I like the pictures as a clear reference (I've very visual), though some of them are misleading. One thing I very much like is that all parts of Germany are equally treated. That is unusual. Most books concentrate disproportionately on Bavaria and The Rhein River Valley. Don't get me wrong! They are breath-taking; however, this book actually recommends some of the little gems found elsewhere.
It's not the kind of travel book tha
Hmf. I mean, the basics are alright, but I don't need so many goddamn pictures. I'm going to SEE the country, alright? I would rather they expand the "about the region" section and shrink the silly colorful maps. I borrowed this from a friend, and usually get guide books from the library instead of buying, but yeah...either way, I think different companies do a much better job (Lonely Planet is still my reigning fave, although I'm eager to try another Hidden Planet guide after my experience with ...more
As someone who lives in Germany, this is a helpful guide for whenever I'm going on a short trip to other cities. It has a very good overview of the main sites that you have to see, but not much is offered in terms of off-the-beaten-path. I wouldn't take any of the suggestions for hotels because they're on the expensive side and typical tourist traps. But I suppose that's what would happen when a lot of people use this book.

Not a terrible guide book but just a little too heavy and repetitive on the castles and churches. Didn't feature enough unique elements of each city. I would have probably been better off with guides for individual cities but I hadn't decided where I was going yet and had hoped that this would inform that decision. Proved to be fruitless in that regard.
I love this book for planning day-trips and knowing what the highlights are in a given city. As one would expect, it has loads of photos, maps of major cities, top attractions, a brief history of the country, and a practical appendix dealing with food, transportation, accommodation, and so forth.
this is a very useful guide for someone who often travels to Germany. It gives enough information on what to see around the country,and where to eat, stay, and how to get around using public transportation (I never rent a car overseas)
