Germany

Der Zeppelin

A Zeppelin is a type of airship.

Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin developed the Zeppelin, in the early 20th century. The name Zeppelin is now used as a common name for all airships.

They were used in the First World War and Second World War, but also for leisure travel if you could afford it.

The Hindenburg was one of the most well-known Zeppelins, but it caught fire on May 6, 1937, during a landing after a non-stop trip from Germany to New Jersey in the United States.

Der Bodensee

Lake Constance or Der Bodensee in German is a large Lake on the river Rhine.

It borders Germany , Switzerland and Austria and is one of the most stunning places in Europe.

It is the third largest lake in Central Europe

The lake covers about 564 km2 of total area.

The Obersee is about 63 km long, and about 14 km wide at its widest point.

The deepest point is 254m deep

Die Bratwurst

The sausage is usually eaten with a hot or sweet German mustard or sliced and eaten as Currywurst. Sometimes, some hot French mustard is served as well. 

Bratwurst is almost always served with a hard German roll and is a popular snack in German-speaking countries, where you can by it in every town or city.

Berlin is well known for Currywurst and I can honestly say that I have not yet met a person who doesn’t like it!

Der Säntis

The Säntis is the highest mountain in the Alpenstein massif of north eastern Switzerland and stands 2501.9 metres above sea level. 

Säntis is among the most prominent summits in the Alps, and with an observation deck on the top the panorama from the summit is spectacular.

Six countries can be seen if the weather allows: Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Liechtenstein,
France, and Italy
