Beethoven, the Beatles and Bayreuth – musicians and their music in Germany

Germany is famous for its classical music, but there are also contemporary artists whose careers have flourished here, such as the celebrated violinist David Garrett, the Beatles and not forgetting David Bowie. Germany is an inspiration! Germany boasts more than one hundred classical concert halls, often with internationally renowned orchestras. Here you'll find a selection of the best festivals, concert venues, and musicians from baroque to rock.


Bad Nauheim – health resort in a breath-taking setting

A powerful combination of heritage, experience and research has enabled Bad Nauheim to become the centre of medicine that it is today. Modern clinics and highly effective therapeutic facilities guarantee the highest possible medical standards. Bad Nauheim's 150-year medical heritage is founded, however, on the presence of mineral-rich spring water , which is used for traditional bathing and drinking cures and also serves the warm, bubbling pools at the Therme am Park. A host of cultural events use the town's art nouveau thermal baths as a magnificent backdrop, and crowds of visitors flock to Bad Nauheim's fantastic festivals.


Michael White: new book on Wagner available March 2013

Wagner’s operas rank among the supreme achievements of Western culture and extracts like 'The Ride of the Valkyries’ are familiar to millions. But the music's scale and cultural baggage can be daunting; which is why the broadcaster, critic and Daily Telegraph columnist Michael White has written a comic-strip style graphic handbook designed for intelligent listeners who haven't quite made it into Wagner but are curious to know what they're missing. Called ‘Introducing Wagner’, the book is a perfect travel accompaniment for this Wagner Bicentenary Year . Published by Icon books (price £6.99), it's available from March 2013.
