Jewel of the Black Forest, Freiburg is a major city in Southwest Germany. A laidback yet beautiful university city, Freidburg is situated on the edge of the Black Forest. Boasting a wonderful weather, vineyards, it is an excellently connected city widely desired as a wonderful place to live in by the locales.
 
FRANKFURT
Frankfurt is located alongside the River Main, and is one of the largest cities in Germany, known for its many skyscrapers, variety of trade shows, and its international airport. But, there is more than meets the eye with this city. Largely going unnoticed, there are many parts of the city that have well-maintained heritage buildings and 19th century parks and streets. There are even places where futuristic skyscrapers stand tall right next beautiful old buildings. The city, also known as birthplace of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, has many distinct neighbourhoods such as Bockenheim, Bornheim, Nordend and Sachsenhausen, each with its own distinctive characters. The Romer Square in the downtown area is a must visit, with wonderfully German buildings surrounding it. One must also visit the many museums in the city, such as the German Architecture Museum, German Film Museum, Stadel Museum, and Leibieg House, which are all located along the River Main in the Museumsufer district of the city. To get a good view of the city, go to the Main Tower, and check out the city from the viewing platform. Other vantage points include the Main River Bridges, especially the eastern ones.
COLOGNE
Considered to be Germany's oldest city, Cologne (Koln) was founded by the Romans in AD 48, and remained an important trading post for millennia after. Literally steeped in history, it houses its historical treasures in world famous museums. The city's most identifiable landmark, the Cologne Cathedral, is enormous and intricate, and took nearly 650 years to complete. Other examples of historic architecture are the Roman Dionysus mosaic, and the medieval Overstolzenhaus and the Gurzenich hall. Mixed here and there with modern structures, Cologne also offers its visitors world class museums, excellent dance clubs, and superb theatre and concerts. It also has some great food and beer, making it one of the most visited tourist destinations in Europe. To top all this off, the city is set amidst a beautiful landscape of hilltop castles, steeply wooded hills, and verdant vineyards.

Weather:
Spring: March to May 5-15 C
Summer: June to August 12-21 C
Autumn: September to November 7-15 C
Winter: December to February 0-6 C

Shopping:
Shopping is an intrinsic part of Cologne, and having been a trading centre for more than 1500 years, it has a variety and depth that is quite unique. There is something for everyone, clothing, shoes, jewellery, books, toys, souvenirs, and of course eau de cologne. Two of the most well known shopping streets in Cologne are Hohe Strasse and Schildergasse. Both are historical paths, existing since Roman times, and the souvenirs to be found here are innumerable. Neumarkt, and its Neumarkt Galerie, are also popular shopping centres, and contain a large variety of fashion, toys, and household items. A must buy is the 4711 Original Eau de Cologne. It is derived from a monk's recipe of citrus fruit, rosemary and lavender, and dissolved in a light alcohol mixture.

Must Do:
If you go to Cologne, and don't visit the Cologne Cathedral, it can be considered a travel crime, a hit and run. The beautiful building truly shows in its every inch its 632 year construction, and it's a sheer experience just to behold its intricate stained glass and inspiring spires. Cologne has many more displays of beautiful architecture, and shows its Roman past, particular in the southeast part, called the Altstadt, a medieval centre in the city. Here Praetorium is a must visit, as well as the twelve large Roman collegiate, monastery and convent churches. Altstadt also has many cosy tourist friendly taverns, which serve the must try type of local beer: Kolsch. It is a light fine-herb top-fermented beer, and is drunk fresh in small cylindrical glasses. Probably the best way to sample it is by visiting a traditional brew house, such as the Fruh am Dom. It is an educational experience. Taking a cruise down the Rhine is also a good way to truly see Cologne's beauty, exquisite to behold at any time of day. There are many restaurants in Cologne, which offer every gourmet the rarest specialities of the world's kitchens. Local cuisine is not to be ignored though, with specialities like traditional potato cake (Reibekuchen), red sauced bratwurst (Currywurst) and special French fries (Fritten). These can be had at one of the numerous snack bars, such as Nehring, in Zulpicher Platz. One should also try to attend the famous Cologne Carnival. It commences 11 November (at 11.11am) with a day-long celebration, but the main parades take place in February. Cologne also has many museums, and the one of a kind Chocolate Museum (Schokoladenmuseum), where you can also try the chocolate fountain.

Destination Information

ABOUT THE TERRITORY:
EURESIA means EUROPE is the world’s seven continents known for ever. Comprising the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia, Europe is generally 'divided' from Asia to its east by the watershed divides of the Ural and Caucasus Mountains, the Ural River, the Caspian and Black Seas, and the waterways connecting the Black and Aegean Seas. Europe is bordered by the Arctic Ocean and other bodies of water to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the west, the Mediterranean Sea to the south, and the Black Sea and connected waterways to the southeast. Europe is the world's second-smallest continent by surface area, covering about 10,180,000 square kilometers (3,930,000 sq mi) or 2% of the Earth's surface and about 6.8% of its land area. Of Europe's approximately 50 states, Russia is the largest by both area and population (although the country has territory in both Europe and Asia), while the Vatican City is the smallest. Europe is the third-most populous continent after Asia and Africa, with a population of 733 million or about 11% of the world's population. Europe is the birthplace of Western culture.

Sometimes, the word 'Europe' is used in a geopolitical limiting way to refer only to the European Union or, even more exclusively, a culturally defined core. On the other hand, the Council of Europe has 47 member countries, and only 27 member states are in the EU. In addition, people living in insular areas such as Ireland, the United Kingdom, and the North Atlantic and Mediterranean islands and also in Scandinavia may routinely refer to "continental" or "mainland" Europe simply as Europe or "the Continent".

RELIGION:
Religion in Europe has been a major influence on European art, culture, philosophy and law. The largest religion in Europe is Christianity as practiced by Catholic, Eastern Orthodox and Protestant Churches. Following these is Islam concentrated mainly in the south east (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania, Kosovo, Kazakhstan, North Cyprus, Turkey and Azerbaijan), and Tibetan Buddhism, found in Kalmykia. Other religions including Judaism and Hinduism are minority religions. Europe is a relatively secular continent and has an increasing number and proportion of irreligious, agnostic and atheistic people, actually the largest in the Western world, with a particularly high number of self-described non-religious people in the Czech Republic, Estonia, Sweden, Germany (East), and France.
For Europeans, religion just isn't as important as it once was. Even for those who do consider themselves religious, they often aren't Christian. And, for those who are still Christian, they often disagree with many traditional and orthodox doctrines. This has lead to all sorts of internal and international problems because no other region has experienced this level of secularization.

The secularization of Europe, according to some political analysts, is one of the forces pushing it apart from the United States, where religion plays a potent role in politics and society, shaping many Americans' views of the world.

CULTURE:
The culture of Europe can be described as a series of overlapping cultures; cultural mixes exist across the continent. There are cultural innovations and movements, sometimes at odds with each other. Thus the question of "common culture" or "common values" is complex.
The foundation of European culture was laid by the Greeks, strengthened by the Romans, stabilized by Christianity, reformed by the 15th-century Renaissance and Reformation, modernized by the 18th century Age of Enlightenment and globalised by successive European empires between the 16th and 20th centuries.
The culture of Europe might better be described as a series of overlapping cultures. Whether it is a question of North as opposed to South; West as opposed to East; Orthodoxism as opposed to Protestantism as opposed to Catholicism; many have claimed to identify cultural fault lines across the continent. There are many cultural innovations and movements, often at odds with each other, such as Christian proselytism or Humanism. Thus the question of "common culture" or "common values" is far more complex than it seems to be.
The foundation of European culture was laid by the Greeks, strengthened by the Romans, stabilized by Christianity, reformed and modernized by the fifteenth-century Renaissance and Reformation and globalize by successive European empires between the sixteenth and twentieth centuries. Thus the European Culture developed into a very complex phenomenon of wider range of philosophy, Christian and secular humanism, rational way of life and logical thinking developed through a long age of change and formation with the experiments of enlightenment, naturalism, romanticism, science, democracy, and socialism. Because of its global connection, the European culture grew with an all-inclusive urge to adopt, adapt and ultimately influence other trends of culture. As a matter of fact, therefore, from the middle of the nineteenth century with the expansion of European education and the spread of Christianity, European culture and way of life, to a great extent, turned to be "global culture,"

CLIMATE:
The climate is milder in comparison to other areas of the same latitude around the globe due to the influence of the Gulf Stream. The Gulf Stream is nicknamed "Europe's central heating", because it makes Europe's climate warmer and wetter than it would otherwise be. The Gulf Stream not only carries warm water to Europe's coast but also warms up the prevailing westerly winds that blow across the continent from the Atlantic Ocean.
Therefore the average temperature throughout the year of Naples is 16 °C (60.8 °F), while it is only 12 °C (53.6 °F) in New York City, which is almost on the same latitude. Berlin, Germany; Calgary, Canada; and Irkutsk, in the Asian part of Russia, lie on around the same latitude; January temperatures in Berlin average around 8 °C (15 °F) higher than those in Calgary, and they are almost 22 °C (40 °F) higher than average temperatures in Irkutsk.
The climate of Europe is of a temperate, continental nature, with a maritime climate prevailing on the western coasts and a mediterranean climate in the south. The climate is strongly conditioned by the Gulf Stream, which warms the western region to levels unattainable at similar latitudes on other continents. Western Europe is oceanic, while Eastern Europe is continental and dry. Four seasons occur in Western Europe, while southern Europe experiences a wet season and a dry season. Southern Europe is hot and dry during the summer months. The heaviest precipitation occurs downwind of water bodies due to the prevailing westerlies, with higher amounts also seen in the Alps. Tornadoes occur within Europe, but tend to be weak. The Netherlands and United Kingdom experience a disproportionately high number of tornadic events.

LANGUAGE:
European languages mostly fall within three Indo-European language groups: the Romance languages, derived from the Latin of the Roman Empire; the Germanic languages, whose ancestor language came from southern Scandinavia; and the Slavic languages
Romance languages are spoken primarily in southwestern Europe as well as in Romania and Moldova, in Central or Eastern Europe. Germanic languages are spoken in northwestern Europe and some parts of Central Europe. Slavic languages are spoken in Central, Eastern, and Southeastern Europe.
In the European Union, language policy is the responsibility of member states and EU does not have a common language policy; European Union institutions play a supporting role in this field, based on the principle of "subsidiary", they promote a European dimension in the member states' language policies. The EU encourages all its citizens to be multilingual; specifically, it encourages them to be able to speak two languages in addition to their mother tongue
Though the EU has very limited influence in this area as the content of educational systems is the responsibility of individual member states, a number of EU funding programmes actively promote language learning and linguistic diversity.
FRENCH is an official language common to the three cities that are political centres of the Union: Brussels (Belgium), Strasbourg (France) and Luxembourg city (Luxembourg), while Catalan, Galician and Russian are the most widely used non-recognized languages in the EU.

CUISINE OF EUROPE:
European cuisine, or alternatively Western cuisine, is a generalized term collectively referring to the cuisines of Europe and other Western countries. European cuisine or Western cuisine includes that of Europe including (depending on the definition) that of Russia, as well as non-indigenous cuisines of North America, Australasian, Oceania, and Latin America, which derive substantial influence from European settlers in those regions. The term is used by East Asians to contrast with Asian styles of cooking. (This is analogous to Westerners referring collectively to the cuisines of East Asian countries as Asian cuisine.) When used by Westerners, the term may sometimes refer more specifically to cuisine in Europe or continental; in this context, a synonym is Continental cuisine, especially in British English. The cuisines of Western countries are diverse by themselves, although there are a common characteristic that distinguishes Western cooking from cuisines of Asian countries and others. Compared with traditional cooking of Asian countries, for example, meat is more prominent and substantial in serving-size. Steak in particular is a common dish across the West. Similarly to some Asian cuisines, Western cuisines also put substantial emphasis on sauces as condiments, seasonings, or accompaniments (in part due to the difficulty of seasonings penetrating the often larger pieces of meat used in Western cooking). Many dairy products are utilized in the cooking process, except in nouvelle cuisine. Wheat-flour bread has long been the most common sources of starch in this cuisine, along with pasta, dumplings and pastries, although the potato has become a major starch plant in the diet of Europeans and their diaspora since the European colonisation of the Americas. Maize is much less common in most European diets than it is in the Americas; however corn meal, or polenta, is a major part of the cuisine of Italy and the Balkans.
