Welcome to Discover Germany’s March issue. As the Easter season arrives and with it, hopefully, the first warm sunrays, our writer Thomas Schloers thought that it would be a great opportunity to introduce our readers to the DACH region’s weird and wonderful Easter traditions and customs, such as following a ram through the city or the‘Easter Egg-Kitschen’.

We also thought that this issue should feature some great ideas for exciting weekend getaways and trips, as the long Easter holiday is the perfect time to take some days off. Whether you are searching for a luxurious hotel, a cosy hostel, a water park or a special restaurant – we have got you covered. A special focus on exciting destinations in North Rhine-Westphalia reveals some great destinations in Germany’s most populous state and this issue also features some of Germany’s most interesting museums and art exhibitions. Or why not visit Bayreuth – an impressive city that not only became famous as the centre of Richard Wagner’s works, but also combines great parks with a long beer brewing tradition? Our writer Emmie Collinge found another exciting activity to do for the more adventurous travellers out there: snowshoeing in Bavaria’s mini Siberia. Our cover star, Barbara Meier, is best known for winning Germany’s Next Topmodel, but our interview with her reveals that she has far more to offer. Also a great actress, she recently published her first book in which she reveals some useful tips on how to become happier, healthier and skinnier without the need for strict dieting. Considering how great she looks, we can’t wait to try it out ourselves. This month’s business section is all about the CeBIT in Hannover. Packed with interesting articles about some of the most innovative companies present at this year’s trade fair, we seek to find out all about big data, internet security or mobile and cloud solutions. Furthermore, we explore great German and Austrian architects, beautiful jewellery from great designers and much, much more in this issue. Sit back, relax and enjoy the magazine!
