Having been separated from West Germany from the end of World War II to 1990, Eastern Germany today has a rich history that is recent, relevant, and fascinating. The national capital, Berlin--once the tense point of division between East and West--offers a wealth of cultural and historical attractions as well as a young and thriving nightlife. Meanwhile, smaller towns and villages in surrounding regions reveal their past with juxtapositions of Gothic churches and Soviet-style apartment blocks. Outdoor enthusiasts will find plenty to fill an Eastern Germany itinerary: the northerly region's largely flat and agricultural landscape provides excellent opportunities for cycling and walking, while the foothills of the south offer hiking trails with extensive views of the scenery. Lakes in and around Berlin have become popular places for swimming and water sports during warmer months, and transform into ice hockey and skating rinks in winter. To arrange what you want to do in Eastern Germany, use our Germany itinerary planner.
