A “Reise” (trip) to Germany can be very interesting. You could visit one of the big cities like Berlin, “München” (Munich), Frankfurt am Main or Cologne. Or you could take a trip to the countryside and enjoy the beautiful “Landschaft” (scenery/landscape). Berlin is by far one of the most interesting cities in Europe. It's full of history but also known for it's great bar and club scene. It's also one of the cheapest cities in Germany and the whole European Union. When choosing the right place to visit you might also want to check for “kulturelle Ereignisse” (cultural happenings). Often times a city will offer free concerts or theater plays. In Berlin, Germany's capital city, most “Museen” (museums) are free to visit for 4 hours every “Donnerstag” (thursday).
Another great spot for “Touristen” (tourists) is “Schloss Neuschwanstein” (Neuschwanstein Castle). The castle is a 19th century Gothic revival palace in southwest “Bayern” (Bavaria) and was the inspiration to Disney's Sleeping Beauty Castle. It is very popular among tourists from all over the world.
My personal tip would be “die Mecklenburgische Seenplatte” (the Mecklenburg Lake District) which is sometimes called “das Land der tausend Seen” (the land of the thousand lakes). It's just beautiful especially during the summer.
While Germany isn't exactly the cheapest destination, there are countless ways to save some money when visiting the country.
“Jugendherbergen” (youth hostels) are increasingly popular. You can find one in every major city and even in rural areas, and they are a great way to be “sparsam” (frugal). Most “Jugendherbergen” are organised in the “Deutsche Jugendherbergsverband” (German youth hostel organisation). Youth hostels are a great way to meet young people from all around the globe, especially in a city like Berlin. The staff usually speaks english and it shouldn't be a problem to get a “Mehrbettzimmer” (dorm room) or even a “Zweibettzimmer” (2 bed room). In those places you usually have to share the bathing facilities with the other backpackers.
If you don't want to sleep in a room full of strangers you could try and google “Hotel Sonderangebote” (hotel bargains) to find something that suits your needs and isn't “zu teuer” (too expensive). Most hotel employees are friendly and speak at least some english.
If your “Budget” (budget) permits, you could even rent a small city apartment. Having your own “Küche” (kitchen) is a great way to save “Geld” (money). If you go grocery shopping you should look for Aldi. It's one of the biggest “Discount Supermarkt” (discount grocery store) in Germany, and you should be able to find everything you need from food to cleaning products. They don't sell name brands though, so if you want to buy a real coke you'll have to look for another super market like Real, Plus, Markant, Globus or Edeka.
Enjoy your “Reise” in “Deutschland” (Germany) and don't forget to try one of the many local “Biere” (beers).
