I will be travelling to Berlin for a short weekend trip to attend a wedding this year so I decided to pick up Lonely Planet Germany to see if we could do a day trip to near by places and good lord this book has opened my eyes to Germany. There are so many beautiful places. Brilliant guide yet again. I will be purchasing Lonely Guide Pocket Berlin to accompany me.

In September of this year I head for Europe. The first port of call will be Hamburg and so it is appropriate that I finally get my hands on this volume of the LP guides.

Unfortunately it does not cover the only small town I'm likely to visit, but nearby Schleswig (in Schleswig-Holstein on the border with Denmark) is listed and may be the better choice for accommodation. The German section of my trip is to find family haunts. As with all LP guides this is easy to read and informative.

Quite good as usual with LP.
It's a big book though, if you only plan to visit some part of Germany, I think regional or city book would be more appropriate, and may give more details on smaller but still nice places.
The historic and cultural section at the end of the book is really great, and worth a read during a train trip :)

Even Cologne is actually bui

Recommends it for: those who plans to come to Germany
It's an ideal book if you plan to travel around Germany by yourself. The 1st chapter gives you an overview of GErmany. Subsequent chapters will go into the different states in Germany. There are many detailed walking tour plans for different states in Germany. Dining places mentioned in LP are definitely worth trying.

I only read the Berlin, Munich, and Dresden-specific parts, as well as the general information and history section. Very useful in planning out my trip and figuring out how much time I needed in each area.

Berlin. Berlin. I have to get back to Berlin.

And... this book is available through the woeful DC public library system.
Used many times over the years. Excellent as always.
