Frankfurt’s airport is a major hub for international travel, but the historic city of Rothschild and Buber is worth more than a stopover. Its proud Jewish heritage is intertwined with its longtime prominence in German finance and media, and indeed, Frankfurt has the country’s largest proportion of Jewish residents, a community that today numbers more than 10,000. These include the city’s popular mayor, Peter Feldmann, a telegenic native whose resume includes a stint on an Israeli kibbutz.

With a cultural scene to rival much larger cities and world-class shopping along its boulevards, Cologne is worth at least several days of the traveler’s time — and together with the equally youthful city of Düsseldorf, this corner of Western Germany makes for a memorable vacation.

Posh, sparkling Munich, where the sun seems always to shine, epitomizes the contemporary German version of the good life. This is the Europe of vacation fantasy — a compact, sophisticated city of medieval façades, inviting plazas, lively cafés, and fairytale castles set into green forests.

The riotous murals along what used to be the forbidding Berlin Wall are an apt introduction to Europe’s coolest city, the German capital. Reborn after the nightmare of Nazism and decades of Cold War repression, reunified Berlin glitters with the sheen of modernity — spruced-up plazas in the former East, jewel-like shops selling artisan housewares in the trendy borough of Mitte, candle-lit restaurants filled with a young, multi-ethnic crowd in the Friedrichshain district.

The shopping city. This slogan has welcomed visitors to the city for decades, shining in illuminated letters on the roof of the Handelshof Hotel. And the title is more than deserved: with around 1,000 emporia and retail outlets the city guarantees an attractive business sector. Exclusive boutiques and custom tailors can be found in the Theaterpassage and Lindengalerie. Limbecker Platz offers a truly superlative shopping adventure: with 200 stores on over 70,000 square meters this is the largest inner-city shopping center in the country.

A city of emperors and princes, leaders and followers, inventors and scholars, Nuremberg has mirrored German history ever since the Middle Ages – the power, the tension, great achievements and great tragedies. Protected by the castle, arts and crafts once flourished, while a new spirit of freedom enlivened the city at a time when few other places could offer such a quality of life. And the same is still true today.

Its Jewish community was one of the first to be revived after WWII.
