Germany wears its riches well: elegant big-city charm, small picture-postcard towns, pagan-inspired harvest festivals, a wealth of art and culture and the perennial pleasures of huge tracts of forest, delightful castles and fine food and culture are all there for the savouring. Enjoying the outdoors, from skiing Alpine peaks to hiking carefully preserved forests, is essential.
I would say it was a great experience. I started off with insufficient German skills but picked them up to a fluent stage. I met so many people and learnt a lot about another country and about myself. I learned to respect many more things and gained a better look on life.
