Setting sail from Frankfurt

Frankfurt is the financial heart of Germany, a forest of silver skyscrapers that's home to both the German and European Central Banks. This focus on commerce has led some to dismiss the city as a dull, soulless sort of place, but in fact Frankfurt buzzes with a real cultural vibrancy; don't miss the Städel Museum, home to works by the likes of Picasso and Rembrandt, or the excellent MMK Museum of Modern Art. Frankfurt is also great fun after dark, and we recommend sampling the lively restaurants and Apfelwein bars of Sachsenhausen.

Don't miss

Sachsenhausen for the relaxed vibe and the best cider.

Arriving in Nuremberg

Nuremberg, Bavaria's second city, first pops up in the history books in 1050 as a stronghold of the Franks, and later became the unofficial capital of the Holy Roman Empire. Nuremberg was also the centre of the German Renaissance, although in the 20th century it became associated with the Nazis; huge rallies were held here, and Nazi officials were later tried and convicted at the Nuremberg Trials. Happily Nuremberg has bounced back from those dark days, and nowadays the city is a tourist magnet thanks to the beautifully restored old town, Christmas markets and excellent beer.

Our tip

Nuremberg is completely rebuilt so has a bit of a Disneyesque feel to it. But this was a key centre for Hitler, so turn your back on toytown and visit the Documentation Centre (excellent exhibit) and Zeppelinfeld, where most of the big Nazi rallies took place.
