How To Plan For Trip To Germany


Germany is a combination of breathtaking landscapes, architectural masterpieces, and fairytale palaces. Whether you’re backpacking on a budget or globetrotting lavishly, traveling to Germany will always be a great experience.

But if you are travelling to this beautiful country for the first time, then there are a lot of things you must know and plan beforehand. To help you get through this drill, we have come up with few travel tips that will prepare you for your journey ahead.

  • Itinerary

It is important to know what the best time and season is to travel to a place. During peak seasons, you will find long queues at popular tourist attractions. And to avoid this, you may consider traveling during shoulder periods when the weather is mild.

Germany has many great cities to explore; each has its own distinct style and culture. It also has a host of renowned cities that survived World War II, such as Dresden, Berlin, and Munich. Plan your itinerary in such a way that you can cover all or most of these cities. 

  • Visas

Once you have planned your itinerary, start applying for your visa. Instead of the usual Germany visa, you need to apply for short-term Schengen visa which allow you to travel across several European countries at one go.

While applying for the Schengen visa you will have to mention the specific destination you are visiting. During your visa interviews you will also have to present your detailed itinerary along with the confirmation letter of your Germany travel insurance. Also, make sure you have all your bank statements and investment receipts ready for the visa interview.

  • Local transportation

Germany offers varied types of transportation system such as bus, tram, right rail, underground subway, and the suburban commuter rail.  Each city has its own transportation system, so you need to figure out how you’re planning to explore Germany and which ticket you need to purchase to get around.


A good thing about public transportation in Germany is that they will provide you a "live like a local" experience. Also, it is recommended to book long-distance train tickets in advance otherwise the fares shoot up during last minute bookings. 


These are just few tips that will help you get started on planning your trip to Germany. For more detailed guide to Germany. Check out our latest blog.
