Accommodation in Germany
Bright lights and bold accommodation
Germany is Europe's most populous nation, and this wildly diverse land counts some of the continent's most iconic cities among its attractions. Berlin remains a complex delight, Munich retains a distinct air of difference and Cologne glistens on the banks of the river Rhine, but what most German cities have in common is some decidedly high-quality accommodation.
As one of Europe's most cosmopolitan cities, it's no surprise that Berlin offers an eclectic range of hotels. From environmentally-friendly eco lodges to boutique bed and breakfasts and an impressive range of 5-star hotels, this glittering world city is home to some of the best accomodation Germany has to offer.
Make a hostel your home from home
Germany's Youth Hotel Association represents more than 500 youth hostels across the country and at over a hundred years old, it has plenty of experience in delivering high-quality accommodation at affordable prices.
While youth hostels may endure a reputation for rowdy patrons taking advantage of their cheap surrounds, Germany's famous 'Jugendherberge' are renowned as some of the finest in the world – often boasting private rooms, upscale dining facilities and a raft of communal activities.
Learn the language with a homestay
The German language is spoken by an estimated 100 million native speakers worldwide, and one of the best ways to learn this important world language is by enjoying the hospitality of a local homestay.
Homestays are an increasingly popular form of accommodation in Germany, with guests not only enjoying the chance to improve their language skills, but also the opportunity to escape the city and head to the countryside to spend some in a picturesque village or pretty rural property.
