Exchange vacation homes - Germany

If you are thinking of traveling to Germany, home exchange is an excellent option to get to know the country as a local. Also, since you’ll be staying at another member's house, you won’t have to pay for accommodation and you can enjoy a more comfortable, quiet, and cheap vacation.

If you are passionate about history and street art, you will love going on vacation to Berlin. It is the city in Germany where there are the most home exchanges and it is full of culture and leisure; there is always something to do! Your exchange partners may lend you bicycles to tour Berlin on wheels. In that case, act like Berliners and enjoy sunny days in the Tiergarten, the largest park in the city, which divides East and West Berlin.

Yes, Berlin is great and perhaps one of the best cities in Europe to travel to with children, but Germany is much more than Berlin! It is an immense country in which there is much to visit. In Weimar the Bauhaus movement was born. In the northern region, called “the Hanseatic League”, there are beautiful cities such as Lübeck, Hamburg, and Bremen, where the famous tale of the Town Musicians originated. In the Black Forest you will find thousands of ways to travel by foot, by bicycle, or by car, visiting the towns and castles of the region that inspired several of the Grimm brothers' tales. Cologne has one of the best carnivals in the world. Heidelberg and the cities along the Rhine are beautiful. Munich is a very pleasant city to visit with your family and is very close to the Neuschwanstein Castle. In the surroundings of Nuremberg, you will find the famous “romantic route” and Dresden is like living in a history class about Communist Germany.

It is always a good time to travel to Germany. In the summer, you will enjoy the huge parks, outdoor activities, and bathing in lakes and rivers. In December, you can enjoy the wonderful Christmas markets, which take place in most cities in Germany - the biggest ones are found in Munich, Frankfurt, and Baden-Baden. Temperatures in December and January are generally freezing, but don't worry, do as the locals do and get through the cold with a good cup of Glühwein, some roasted almonds, and ginger cake.
