Living in Germany
In Northern Germany is an extensive coastline along the North and Baltic Seas with a very flat landscape that is worlds away from the Bavarian South, which is home to a part of the Alps mountain range. In between are forests that are popular tourist destinations for their unspoiled beauty and rural fields that mix with larger cities.
The federal government has little involvement with education as this power is devolved to state level, with each German Lander responsible for their own education policies.
Art and Culture
With 16 culturally unique states that only formed a political union in 1871, Germany is culturally a very diverse country. Varying from the beer, Lederhosen and alpine hats of Bavaria to Frankfurt, Europe’s financial hub with an impressive skyline, the culture in each city is unique.
With a penchant for precision, Germans have made tremendous contributions in the world of classical arts (think the Brandenburg gate) and music, with Beethoven and Bach amongst the country's national treasures.
Germany is well known for being a country of cars, with the likes of Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Porsche and Volkswagen (VW) a source of national pride. Naturally, Germany is home to an incredible network of roads that attracts many a tourist. However, one can easily travel by plane, bus, train or bicycle as well thanks to extensive investment is transport infrastructure.
