Germany can be called the land of books, art, ideas, science, culinary invention, beer, highways and cars. It’s one of the largest and most economically advanced European countries, having taken an active part in world wars, and, later, ensuring peace on the continent and in the whole world. However, neither Germany’s size, nor its beauty can be measured in numbers, percentages and kilometres. For this reason, we offer you a handful of interesting facts about the country and German life.

The Genius

J. W. von Goethe, one of the country’s most important writers, humanists, politicians, philosophers, scientists and travellers, knew many foreign languages: Greek, French, Latin, and English. He was well-versed in European culture, knew how to dance, ride a horse and fence. Goethe wrote – effortlessly and profusely – from youth to old age. Given that he was especially interested in alchemy, physiognomy, spiritism, the art of prediction and the Kabballah, it’s no surprise that, during his lifetime, Goethe belonged to many different secret societies. He was most interested in nature and man. This genius outlived all of his wives and his son August, and died at the age of 83. He was buried in a royal grave in Weimar.

German Wine

Many of us have come to think that, in Germany, mainly beer flows freely, whereas wine is only made in neighbouring countries. The truth, however, is that Germany has as many as 13 Wine Countries, each with its own unique culture and traditions, offering an especially wide variety of high quality wines. The most important made from white grapes are Riesling, Silvaner and Rivaner, while Spätburgunder is considered to be the best variety of red. In Germany, grapes are grown in small vineyards, where manual labour is still highly prized, because it leads to great quality wine and helps to maintain an idyllic landscape.

Holiday Traditions

German people love to celebrate. Over three million different occasions are celebrated here every year: street festivals, vivacious Christmas fairs, folk festivals, for example, the Oktoberfest in Munich, the Carnival of Culture in Berlin, Shrovetide in Mainz and Cologne, all of which have been symbols of good cheer and the atmosphere of hospitality for a long time.
