Our cover star, Benjamin Karl, an Austrian snowboarder with seven World Cup victories, will probably also inspire you to get out and try some snowboarding. Furthermore, we have put together some great themes about what to do and visit in the DACH region in Christmas time. Whether you want to go to one of the famous Christmas markets in Germany or head to some wintery travel destinations, be further inspired by our special themes in this month’s Discover Germany issue. On another note, there are other reasons to celebrate this month. For example, on 9 November 1989, a momentous event happened that many of our close relatives still can recount with vivid tales – the fall of the Berlin Wall. After years of separation, West and East Germany finally became one country again. Our writer Thomas Schroers thus thought that this would be a great opportunity to write about this historic moment in more detail. But, of course, this is not all that can be found in our November issue. Thanks for reading,

We are quickly approaching the festive season and it’s officially time to get into that Christmas mood! If you still can’t cope with the darker and colder days, do not despair – we have got you covered with some tips on how to lighten up the winter. As you will be spending more time indoors, we have given you some inspiration on how to re-decorate your home with stylish interior design items as part of our ‘Dedicated to Design’ section. Add a candle, a good book and some ‘Spekulatius’ from a nearby store (‘Spekulatius’ describes a type of spiced shortcrust biscuit that is loved all over Germany for Christmas) and you will surely lose those dreaded winter blues.
