Brimming with medieval wonder and modern innovation, Germany never fails to surprise us each time we visit. Twisting and turning through history, Alpine peaks and hip modern streets; the culture here is rich and the landscapes breathtaking, making a luxury holiday in Germany the perfect escape for any occasion. So, take it all in a country that so effortlessly blends the cutting-edge with timeless classics.
In Wim Wenders’ 1987 fantasy film Wings of Desire, an angel – played by the impeccable Bruno Ganz – looks out over the humming vista of Berlin. He is filled with a humble love for a country that would, over the next thirty years, not only reunify its East and West, but would blossom into one of the world’s most developed and culturally rich economies. Germany – from Bavarian castles and black forest gateau to BMWs and Berghain – has it all, and in enviable heaps.
Pine forests, deep and rich and dark; romantic, turret-thronged castles, piercing the blue sky; and moody, snow-slicked mountains. This is the Black Forest, Germany’s own fantastical wilderness and one of Europe’s best haunts for a luxury family retreat – a layer-cake of mountains and pine-shrouded hills in the state of Baden-Württemberg in southwest Germany. A private chauffeur will be your tour guide up intoto this most scenic of regions, enjoying dinner at the rustic Bauernstube and visiting the largest walk-in cuckoo clock in the world.
From the stately mass of Berlin’s Pergamon Museum to the trendy artist-led spaces of hustling Hamburg, Germany is awash with some for the world’s most daring and darling art. Join a private tour across centuries of creativity in the homeland of Anselm Keifer’s corrugated landscapes, the experimental performance of Joseph Beauys, and the romantic dreaming of Kaspar David Freidreich – making it an ideal and restful pause, whether you’re travelling as an extended family or on a luxury European honeymoon.
The capital of proud Bavaria, Munich, is best preceded by a private tour to the breathtaking Zugspitze – Germany’s snowbound and tallest mountain. The city itself – a buzzing compact of squares, churches, museums and eateries. At the Feldherrnhalle, a monumental loggia on the Odeonsplatz, you’ll encounter the city’s most historically important monument – and one which played a decisive role in the country’s slide into fascism and war. You’re also only a short spin away from the unforgettable and surprisingly entertaining BMW Museum, where you’ll be able to test-drive some of the newest releases.
