Nice to know when you are searching for rental housing in Germany
Germany is greatly known as the country of beer, mountain scenery and tech businesses. It’s the second largest country in Europe after Russia at 83,190,556 inhabitants (2020). Germany has an important role in the EU as the largest economy and thereby also a big contributor to the union. Germany is divided into 16 states all with individual landscaping, traditions and look.
The largest state is called North Rhine-Westphalia and makes up about 15% of the population of Germany. North Rhine-Westphalia is located in the western part of Germany along with the states of Hesse, Rhineland - Palatinate and Saarland. Here you can experience some of the many cathedrals like the Kölner Dom in Cologne, or the Aachener Dom in Aachen, which is the burial place of Charlemagne and where more than 30 German kings have been crowned through the centuries. The landscape here is characterized by mostly rolling hills and fields and forests, but also mountains further south. There are many National parks in this area like Arnsberg Forest Nature Park, which is one of the largest wooded areas of Germany. The largest cities of these states are Düsseldorf, Cologne, Münster and Mainz.
The capital of Berlin is composed into its own small state, with a large number of citizens. It’s located in the Eastern part of Germany along the states of Saxony, Saxony - Anhalt, Brandenburg and Thuringia. The main attraction for tourists here would be Berlin. The city of glamour, grit, cutting-edge architecture, exclusive nightclubs and museums with some of the most influential stories of Europe's recent history. As the surrounding states were ruled by the Soviet Union government just 32 years ago, they’ve got many stories to tell, and historic sights to visit. The landscape in these states are characterized by Boasting forests, idyllic lakes and untamed rivers near Berlin, and rugged, rocky landscape further south.
In northern Germany lies the states of Lower Saxony, Bremen, Hamburg, Schleswig-Holstein and Mecklenburg. Here you’ll enter a never ending hindsight of green fields full of cows and rolling hills. Here you’ll also find some of Germany’s only coastlines. This area is especially known in Germany as the holiday destination, and some of the islands have reached a status like the hamptons in the U.S.
If you venture south by the autobahn into the southern states of Baden - Württemberg and Bavaria, you’ll reach the rocky mountains, rolling hills and the beginning of the alps. Here you can taste the infamous traditional dish of Schweinshaxe (Pork Knuckle). Some of the biggest cities in this area are Munich, Frankfurt and Stuttgart. In total, the two states house around 40% of Germany’s population, and are also economically the strongest in Germany.
