Sun, snow and active holidays

On 7 February 2012, the German Travel Association announced that there has been no increase in the number of holidays booked to sunnier regions, despite the cold and snow (dpa). Perhaps no surprise considering the wide variety of ways to enjoy the sunny winter days in Germany, from the North Sea coast to the Alps. There is so much to see and do for visitors of all ages, whether it's active pursuits in the snow, relaxation at spas and thermal baths, or culinary delights prepared by Michelin-starred chefs.
