The Rough Guide to Germany is the definitive handbook to this fascinating country. It features a full-colour introduction to Germany's highlights, from the beer halls of Munich to the hiking trails of the Bavarian Alps. There is lively and detailed coverage given to the full range of attractions, from the spas of Baden-Baden and castles of Bavaria to the jazz clubs of Munich.
For every city, town and village there are discerning reviews of the best places to stay, eat and drink, in all price ranges.
In the final 'Contexts' chapter, incisive discussion is given to topics as diverse as the Oberammergau Passion Play and the occult figure of Johannes Faust.
