Germany is a land fuelled by its bold personality. From its capital of Berlin - which is an astonishing nine times bigger than Paris - to the river valleys and vineyards in the country and the bold skyscrapers in cities like Frankfurt, Germany presents the most fascinating combo of new and old.
With around 81 million people, it has the second largest population in Europe and is bordered by no less than nine countries including France, Belgium and Poland. As such, Germany has always commanded a strong and powerful position in the continent.
