Northern Germany is the home of many natural wonders but also many of the country's most populous and internationally known towns. Dusseldorf, Cologne and Bonn all bring their charm to the region.
In 700 years, Dusseldorf has emerged from a small fishing village to the heart of German foreign trade. The Konigsallee, which traverses a waterway and is lined by cafes, shops and gardens, is the city's main thoroughfare. Cologne is the embodiment of old-world Roman architecture and culture in a modern setting; several Romanesque churches still stand as well as a sewage system and catacombs built in a bygone age. Bonn retains many of the vestiges of administration left over from its status as the seat of government (until 2000); besides its political trappings, it also features several international shops and restaurants as well as cathedrals, chapels and cloisters.
Meanwhile, the Harz region is home of Germany's highest mountains and a place of wondrous water-filled activities. The Harz Mountains' tallest peak is Mount Brocken, which is over 1,000 meters tall, and the entire area is a network of plateaus, highlands and natural spires which give way to magnificent waterfalls, rushing streams and deep blue rivers. Factor in the castles, abbeys and ruins of medieval times abundant in the area, and you realize that the Harz is an area of infinite curiosity and adventure.
