    Almost all non-industrialized cities are worth visiting and without many immigrants, e.g. Würzburg (but be aware that Franconians are considered very rude by most outsiders ).
    And then of course the non-industrialized country side.

    I agree to Jäger´s statement and would add that the regional Bavarian regions (on the map below Franconia ) are definately worth a visit as well as our local culture is still alive and mainly uninfluenced by modern streamings. Many medium-sized towns here are worth a visit and have a history back to the middle ages or even earlier: Viechtach, Regensburg, Bad Reichenhall, Cham, Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Straubing, Ingolstadt or Berchtesgaden are a must-have-seen.

    Generally speaking, the Southern parts of Germany (Bavaria and Baden-Würtemberg) have more local traditions and peculiarities than the northern German parts.

    Thank`for your information:-)

    If I go to Franken I guess it`s possible to get Merettich there, is this a local spesiality in some parts of Franken or common in other areas as well?

    Nah. They are just more often shown.

    It's common in all of Germany anyways, Franken is more or less the oldest grower of Meerettich in Germany (of what we know), and was once even the largest (until the 30s). You may want to check Baiersdorf they have a Meerettich museum.

    When visiting Würzburg, which Jäger mentioned, don't forget to visit the Würzburg Residence. I've been there once and it was very impressive. And as Thusnelda mentioned among others, Rothenburg ob der Tauber is an example of typical medieval German culture/architecture. It's amazingly beautiful, but be prepared for all the tourists though (especially in summer). The same goes for Monschau in the Eifel by the way.
    From my own experience I can add the old part of Heidelberg, home to the oldest university in Germany. You can take a walk on the steep Philosophenweg and be treated with a beautiful view of the city and its castle.
    Furthermore I think the Rhineland in general has a very distinct and impressive look with its castles and narrow valleys. One of these valleys, the Moselle valley, is also famous for its vinyards.

    I agree to your assertion.

    I had been invited by a friend (who is in the Germanism hobby, in all consequence i mean, which includes moon calendar and collecting herbs) in 2008 to visit her, she just recently had been settling there. I was told "who else " made it to the Moselle Valley/Cochem, the major attraction for all these people is the Reichsburg Imperial Castle (Cochem), one of the seats of the Holy Roman Emperors. This area is one of the most beautiful areas in Ge in my view, and not expensive if you are not directly in Cochem or at the Moselle, but pick one of the side valleys.


    The 1014 years old Reichsburg-Castle at Cochem/Moselle:
    Residence (part time) of the Holy Roman Emperor (s) between 1151-1689
    Construction started in 996ad and finished to full size ca 1180ad.
    So it took almost 200 years to construct the Emperor's residence.

    There are little to no non White immigrants, but a lot of tourists, mostly from Benelux, but also from the US (the US main bases Frankfurt and Rammstein are within 2 hours by car), UK and France. It was summer time when i was there, in winter the area is less populated i was told, most attractions closed. So the tourist season is between spring and wine harvest (Weinlese), thus April to November.

    I say if you want contact with real german culture the small towns are the best. You may want to catch some temporary job there, and have a better contact with germandom.

    The german eastern lands emptied from Germans 60 years ago, also have many monuments and remains of its german past - but sadly no living german culture, except some enclaves. It is advised to visit German East after you are familiar with proper german culture and then see how post-1945 destruction of Germanics began (becouse if began there - population replacement, erasing germanic past, turning cities into dump - all this now standard things were introduced in postwar German East FIRST).

    Howewer, I think it is obligatory for anyone interested in german culture to visit Danzig, Konigsberg or Breslau...

    Schattenjäger, do you know how, or from where, I can obtain any reference to Prussian culture, thier music, folk songs, clothing, holidays, anything?
    Even the memory of Prussia seems to have been erased.
