Grab a beer and find a shady spot in a Biergarten. Commune with Nature on the trails of the Harz mountains. Treat your ears to a Bach festival. Stay in a hay loft and wake up to a generous farmer's breakfast. Bike past half-timbered houses in the Tauber valley. Probe the underbelly of German art in Berlin's Scheunenviertel. Watch the sun set slowly from a windswept Baltic beach. Peruse Goethe's correspondence. Go castle-hopping on the Rhein. Dip into the Bodensee on a sunny afternoon. In other words, if you want to experience the heart and soul of Germany, whatever you do, don't spend too much money.
The deep and rich experience of Germany that every true traveler yearns for is one of the things in life that money can't buy. In fact, if you have money, try not to use it. Traveling lavishly is the surest way to turn yourself into a sideline traveler. Restaurants with white-glove service are great -- sometimes -- but they're usually not the best place to find the perfect Sauerbraten mit Knödel (marinated roast beef with dumplings). Doormen at plush hotels have their place, but not when your look-alike room could be anywhere from Dover to Detroit. Better to stay in a more intimate place that truly gives you the atmosphere you traveled so far to experience. Don't just stand and watch -- jump into the spirit of what's around you.
If you want to see Germany up close and savor the essence of the country and its people, this book is for you. We'll show you the local culture, the offbeat sights, the bars and cafés where tourists rarely tread, and the B&Bs and other hostelries where you'll meet fellow travelers -- places where the locals would send their friends. And because you'll probably want to see the famous places if you haven't already been there, we give you tips on losing the crowds, plus the quirky and obscure facts you want as well as the basics everyone needs.
Who are we? We're artists and poets, slackers and straight arrows, and travel writers and journalists, who in our less hedonistic moments report on local news and spin out an occasional opinion piece. What we share is a certain footloose spirit and a passion for Germany, which we celebrate in this guidebook. Shamelessly, we've revealed all of our favorite places and our deepest, darkest travel secrets, all so that you can learn from our past mistakes and experience the best part of the 16 Länder (states) to the fullest. If you can't take your best friend on the road or if your best friend is hopeless with directions, stick with us.
