These are the stories, suggestions and tips we collected during our journeys.
Prepare for a roller coaster of feasts, treats and temptations as you take in Germany's soul-stirring scenery, spirit-lifting culture, big-city beauties, romantic palaces and half-timbered towns.
There's something undeniably artistic in the way Germany's scenery unfolds – the corrugated, dune-fringed coasts of the north; the moody forests, romantic river valleys and vast vineyards of the centre, and the off-the-charts splendour of the Alps, carved into rugged glory by glaciers and the elements. All are integral parts of a magical natural matrix that's bound to give your camera batteries a workout. Get off the highway and into the great outdoors to soak up the epic landscapes that makes each delicious, slow, winding mile so precious

France seduces travellers with its unfalteringly familiar culture, woven around cafe terraces, village-square markets and lace-curtained bistros with their plat du jour chalked on the board. Food is of enormous importance to the French and the daily culinary agenda takes no prisoners: breakfasting on warm croissants from the boulangerie, stopping off at Parisian bistros, and market shopping are second nature to the French – and it would be rude to refuse. But French gastronomy goes far deeper than just eating exceedingly well. Its experiential nature means there is always something tasty to observe, learn and try. Be it flipping crêpes in Brittany or chinking champagne flutes in ancient Reims cellars, the culinary opportunities are endless.

Italy is an extraordinary feast of heart-thumping, soul-stirring art, food and landscapes rivalled by few and coveted by millions.

Dear Wanderlust: In spring of 2015 the Saltalpes-Trail was opened as a new hiking track. It streches for more than 233 km from Prien at Lake Chiemsee straight through the Chiemgau area and Berchtesgadener Land to the Austrian Obertraun at Lake Hallstatt at the foot of the Dachstein mountains.
At Lake Chiemsee, Lake Königssee and Lake Hallstatt are once-in-a-lifetime views waiting. The trail follows the old pipeline- routes and we follow those tracks ... riding an ebike.

River Moselle flows through France, crosses Luxemburg and makes its way through Germany towards River Rhine along pitoresque, midevial places and dizzy slopes covered by grapes.
The river meanders from one place to another and holds sight to fairy tale castles and fortresses which had been destroyed during long gone battles or had been restored and kept with passion. Restaurants offering local wine or villages which seemed to be glued to the rocks are waiting behind every bend of the river we follow.
Rolling hills covered with vines, lush orchards, the Palatinate Forest with quiet valleys and gargling creeks and a mediterranean microclimate - those are the key facts about the German Wineroad. Germany's first touristical road covering wine as an issue starts near Worms in the north and ends about 85 kms away in the south at (or just behind) the French border in Schweigen, resp. Wissembourg.
The picturesque villages invite to drive slowly or to get out and have a nice walkabout.
