Germany's Culture and the Arts
The world knows the “Land of Ideas” not just from its products “Made in Germany” but also as the “land of poets and thinkers”. More than 20 million tourists travel to Germany every year. Some tourists enjoy the unique cultural range with a huge music and theatre scene. Others holidays in Germany by mountaineering in the Alps or swimming off the North Sea and Baltic coasts.
You might expect a country like Germany to have plenty of museums and exhibitions. But you may be astonished by how many there actually are.
Theatre is an institution in Germany – no doubt about that. So, if you like watching plays, listening to operas, or would perhaps like to take part in some amateur dramatics, you'll find it here.
Germany's reputation as a centre of top-class music education is also reflected in its musical life. Operas, concerts and musicals thrive and flourish. "Look" and "hear" for yourself.
Germans are readers. Literature plays an important role in German society, whether in a reading chair, at the bookshop or on the bus or tram. Come and read about this national passion.
