I am a Flemish Belgian, born and raised in the Flemish part of Belgium and in many aspects my culture and country is very close to German. We also share a common 204-kilometer-long land border and my language Dutch sounds to most Germans like something between another regional dialect of German and a foreign language. Germany is a diverse country with many attractions! So, I’ve been there many times for many reasons, but Oktoberfest; the world’s largest beer festival was unforgettable. And the combination of old-world charm and modern urban cities make Germany an ideal destination for travelers.
