Canny visitors could find they have the Black Forest, ‘Saxon Switzerland’ or the Baltic coast almost to themselves
Germany usually comes a little lower on British holidaymakers’ wishlists than heavyweights such as France, Italy and Spain – which means fewer tourists, and more space for clued-up Britons to enjoy. The country is getting back on its feet in terms of tourism, with social distancing measures in place in most states, and masks required in hotels, restaurants, shops and on public transport. While most Germans are holidaying at home, there are still fewer visitors than usual, especially in off-the-beaten track locations. Here are some of good spots to get lost in for a while.
