Book Description

25 Jun 1992 Rough Guide Travel Guides
The first part of this guide examines Western Germany, the great success story of postwar Europe. Widely seen as being safe and materialistic, it is also home to the continent's largest and most influential peace and ecology movements, while its landscapes, ranging from the majestic Bavarian Alps to the restored Hanseatic cities of the north, have surprises enough to fill months of travel. Until the revolution of 1989, travel within much of Eastern Germany presented colossal problems for Westerners. Now, places which have been almost impossible to visit for over 40 years are now readily accessible - and at remarkable low prices. The second part of the guide breaks new ground by describing the East in the same detail as the Western part of Germany. Whether one is looking for the lowdown on Munich's nightspots, wandering through the Black Forest, or seeking out the time-warped towns of the east, this guide will help and inform.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much more than just a guide book! 10 Feb 2012
By MarkM
Seeing one of Gordon McLachlan's Rough Guides given only one star has shocked me into writing my first ever Amazon review. Don't take my word for how brilliant his German guides are (and nothing against the authors of the current guide but they aren't in the same league as McLachlan), instead I quote from the bibliography of another brilliant and indispensable book for anyone either interested in, or wanting to visit Germany, 'Germania' by Simon Winder who writes: 'Gordon McLachlan's Rough Guide to Germany ... a perfect example of how a guide book can sometimes also be an exceptional work of literature. (McLachlan's) enthusiasm can sometimes be borderline demented - no matter that a town's only focus of interest is a mildly odd fountain, the place is always worth a two-to-three-day stay - but the book is clever, enjoyable and encyclopaedic'. Whilst certain details and of course, prices may become out of date, I guarantee you that any one of McLachlan's German guides will excite and inspire you to take many a fruitful journey around this wonderful and largely undiscovered country. The Rough Guide to Germany.
