Photos Map & Plan Diary 1 2

GENERAL INFO (Jump to Diary)
Germany is actually rightfully named Federal Republic of Germany, and it is made up by  sixteen constituent states, covering an area of 357,021 square kilometres. It is a federal, parliamentary, representative democratic republic with 82 million inhabitants.
60% are Christians, 35% have no religion while Muslims makeup around 4% and the rest is miner groups of Jews, Buddhists and Hindi.
The currency is Euro, worth 7,46 Danish Krone. They have quite some of them as the GDP is around 3,5 trillion US$.

The climate varieties from north to south and into the mountains, but it is generally a  temperate seasonal climate, making the summers the best time to visit, unless you are a passionate skier.
Germany  is divided into two eco-regions: European-Mediterranean montane mixed forests and Northeast-Atlantic shelf marine.
Plants and animals include those generally common to Central Europe. Beeches, oaks, and other deciduous trees constitute one-third of the forests; conifers are increasing as a result of reforestation. Spruce and fir trees predominate in the upper mountains, while pine and larch are found in sandy soil. There are many species of ferns, flowers, fungi, and mosses. Wild animals include roe deer, wild boar, mouflon, fox, badger, hare, and small numbers of the Eurasian beaver. Nothing that really draws my attention.

 I have seen quit some of Germany before, but mainly the nurseries and botanical gardens. This time, I will pass bye some of the other interesting sights, mainly in the north-eastern and south-eastern regions. See the plan on the Map-Page.

Well, I haven't had the time yet, but one day....
