In case you are looking for a European country to visit during this spring, I have a great tip: choose Germany! This astonishing country is a fantastic tourist destination, being home to some gorgeous cities, natural attractions like mountains, lakes, national parks and others, ski and spa resorts, historic buildings such as palaces, castles and cathedrals, beaches in its northern part and other kinds of attractions.

You can visit this fantastic country at any time of the year, but there are some destinations which are worth visiting during spring, including the Lake Constance, the historic city of Heidelberg, the Black Forest, Munich which gets very crowded during summertime and others. If you would like to find out more about these destinations, I suggest you to read the following guide.

Lake Constance

The picturesque and huge Lake Constance (Bodensee) is one of the major natural highlights of Germany. Lying at the foot of the Alps, the lake is split between three countries. The German part lies in the states of Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria.

The best time of the year to visit the beautiful lake is during the months of April and May. This is the time when trees are in bloom and the weather is very pleasant for practicing such outdoor activities like sailing, kayaking, hiking, walking and biking. Enjoy the beautiful landscape and visit the city which lies on the shores of the lake: Constance. It is a fantastic city which is lively during springtime.

Heidelberg

The breathtaking city of Heidelberg is a must if you travel to Germany, especially during springtime. Its picturesque setting and historic attractions like the castle make the city a top tourist destination.

The surrounding hills’ vegetation reverts to green and the city fills up with life as the residents enjoy the warmer evenings on the terraces of the cafes and restaurants. Also, if you would like to avoid the tourist crowds, this is the best time to visit the city. Make a refreshing walk up to the castle and enjoy the gorgeous view over the city and the surrounding area.

Black Forest

The wonderful Black Forest is situated in the state of Baden-Württemberg. It is a major natural attraction of the country. Besides summer, the region is worth visiting during spring. After the long winter months we couldn’t wait for the warmer temperature. Hiking, trekking or mountain biking in the Black Forest is with no doubt a great idea.

Munich

One of the most visited German cities is Munich. This fantastic city makes a perfect spring destination. As it gets very crowded during summer, the best time of the year to visit it is spring.

Accommodation will also be a little cheaper than during the peak season. The city is abundant in green spaces which make it even more attractive during this time of the year. The fantastic Munich Frühlingsfest is another convincing reason to visit the city. This year it will occur between the 29th of April and the 5th of May. (April 2013)
