Travel with Andy Jarosz: Germany - Bavarian castles, Rhine cruises and Christmas markets!
Travel expert Andy Jarosz came into the studio to talk about an often-overlooked European destination: Germany. Germany has loads to offer as a tourist destination. Andy suggested river cruises along the Rhine, which dock in historic towns for visitors to explore, and may allow the opportunity for hiking along the banks of the river or visiting some of the vineyards alongside the Rhine.
Another great destination is Bavaria: the 'Romantic Road' winds through many picturesque towns, and you can see some of the beautiful castles Bavaria is famous for. On the practical side, while coach tours are available, Andy suggests getting the train through Bavaria since it is so cheap and easy - 'Bavaria tickets' will get you on all buses and trains in the region, and are quite cheap.
Another draw for many people is the famous Christmas markets. These take place all around the country and are an amazing experience!
