The first place tourists visit in Germany usually is the very vital capital Berlin with its suburb city Potsdam. But other German places also are worth a visit. Germany is famous for picturesque little towns, old castles and villages, especially along River Rhine (Rüdesheim, Bingen, St. Goar). Tourists in Northern Germany often go to its metropolis Hamburg or visit the old cities of Bremen, Lübeck and Schwerin. Also Northern German sea resorts North Sea and Baltic Sea are worth a visit. In Central Germany there are many provincial capitals each with a special flair: British-like Hanover, Düsseldorf and Cologne with its carnival season, the financial capital Frankfurt, Leipzig, Dresden or Nuremberg with their christmas fairs. In Germany to ski is very popular in its resorts in Harz mountains, Thuringia Forest, Black Forest and the Alps of Bavaria.
