Travel destinations are the Rhine, Mosel and Elbe rivers, Hooksiel on the North Sea coast, Ankershagen and the Müritz national park, and Nuremberg.
Germany's rivers and the many sights along them are fascinating and diverse. We take a tour on the Rhine, along the Mosel and up the Elbe into the region known as Saxon Switzerland.
In Arneburg, ferryman Frank Schumacher carries passengers safely over the Elbe. He recommends the castle park, St. George's church and the Goldener Anker hotel.
Behind the dike, the Wadden Sea National Park awaits you, with North Sea waves and wicker beach chairs. On the other side of the dike, the old fishing village of Hooksiel attracts its guests with maritime charm and freshly-smoked fish in the Brücke restaurant, after a boat trip to the seal banks.
Heinrich Schliemann, who excavated the site now presumed to be the site of the ancient city of Troy, spent eight years of his childhood in the village of Ankershagen near Lake Müritz. His parents' house is now a museum. Children can play in a Trojan horse in its garden.
Andrea Arrigo and Eugenio Etcheverry discover Nuremberg's turbulent history, from the medieval Kaiserburg castle to the former Nazi party rally grounds.
