Germany (Eyewitness Travel Guides) 2007

This is a whopper: 600 pages! Berlin, Brandenburg, Saxony-Anhalt, Saxony, Thuringia, Munich, Bavaria, Baden-Wurttemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate, Saarland, Hesse, North Rhine-Westphalia, Bremen, Hamburg, Lower Saxony, Schleswig-Holstein, and Mecklenburg-Lower Saxony. Whew!

If Germany is a sizeable portion of your trip, this Guide is worth the weight. Frankly, it's really beautiful to look at, it made me want to visit plenty of places off my route! Maybe next time...

Berlin (Eyewitness Travel Guides) 2006

Berlin is a big place, and like London, it is made up of quite distinctive areas. This edition (April 2006) is quite up-to-date, and really provides more than enough for the most active visitor to get through.

If you're staying more than a few days, I'd go with this book, which has all the usual high quality photos, illustrations, maps etc of other Eyewitness guides. It's a great souvenir, too.

Eyewitness Top 10 Travel Guides: Berlin (Eyewitness Travel Top 10)

But if you're only staying a couple of days or so, this is the book to take. The only disadvantage is that it's getting a bit old (July 2002). Still good though.

The Top Ten approach is a great way to pack the most into your time. The choices are not particularly radical, but you won't go far wrong or miss too much. The trick is just to use the guide as a guide, not as gospel not to be departed from!

Munich & The Bavarian Alps (Eyewitness Travel Guides)

(December 2003) The big general guide has quite good coverage of this area, but if you're really going to spend some time in the South, this could be worth considering.

It covers Munich, Upper Bavaria (North, East, & South), Lower Bavaria, the Allgau, and Northern Swabia. 324 pages.

Not enough for you?
