Highlight: There’s something undeniably artistic in the way Germany’s scenery unfolds – the corrugated, dune-fringed coasts of the north; the moody forests, romantic river valleys and vast vineyards of the centre, and the off-the-charts splendour of the Alps, carved into rugged glory by glaciers and the elements.
Best time: Summer is the best time to visit Germany, Spring and autumn are also good options, particularly the months of May and September when there is little rainfall.
Favourite memory: Driving around the Brandenburg Gate, cocktails in the Fernsehturm Stuttgart before a private reception at the Christmas market.
Favourite Venues: Maritim Hotel Berlin, Villa Kennedy, a Rocco Forte hotel, NH Frankfurt Moerfelden Conference Center, Carl Benz Arena.
Why it makes our list: Germany is well suited for conferences and incentives, great choice of cities, easily accessible and offers plenty of activities.
