Summer is finally here and I hope you are enjoying your time outside to the fullest and exploring what nature has to offer. The Discover Germany team certainly is. That’s why we have decided to give you some inspiration for exciting trips to get you out of your own four walls and into the sunshine. Bavaria, for example, has much to offer. The largest German state enchants with beautiful landscapes and diverse cultural offerings. Whether you opt for water adventures, hiking or climbing trips, cross-country skiing paths, extensive relaxation, a tour of discovery, a museum visit, historic small towns, vibrant cities, UNESCO world heritage sites, festivals or enchanting castles, Bavaria will suit every taste and the possibilities are endless. Turn to our Bavaria special to find out more. Or why not head to the Harz region? Here, one can discover intoxicating wilderness and a magical mountain world. For those who want to head to Switzerland instead, we have created a Basel city special. With its medieval old town, tasty culinary treats, exceptional nature and extraordinary cultural offerings, we think it makes for the perfect weekend trip destination. If you prefer staying at home and fancy a tasty glass of wine at your next garden party, we have got you covered. We have handpicked some of the best Austrian wineries to inspire you to try something new. One German presenter who prefers to go far beyond exploring his natural surroundings is Ranga Yogeshwar – this month’s cover star. As one of Germany’s most inquisitive and leading science journalists, he never shies away from thinking outside the box. Our writer Thomas Schroers had the chance to meet up with Yogeshwar and we hope this inspires you to explore your surroundings even further this summer. And now – enjoy and thanks for reading!
