Have you ever been in Venice to compare it with Hamburg?

I get the intention to keep Germans in Germany this year for the summer holidays but I don’t see the point of diminishing the beauty of Italy. Every country is unique without the need of low comparisons between them.

Both are unique

Hello! I have been to both Hamburg and Venice, and love them both. I'm not trying to diminish the beauty of Italy, rather I want to elevate Germany's beauty in people's minds - hence "let me show you what Germany has to offer – and why it’s just as great as Italy." - :)

hmmm not convinced

Planned a staycation recently. Looked at places transport friendly and an hour or so from Berlin. Brandenberg was probably the most depressing, lots of poorly maintained homes with black vinyl furniture and Ikea. The hotels weren't that exciting either - two beds stuck together with wood in the middle and the soft square pillows never appeal and prices higher than many places in Berlin. So we ended up staying at a fancy hotel in Berlin.

Hmm not convinced

Well if you want to spend the entire time indoors for fear of exposure to nature, lakes and clean air, then stay in town.

Brandenburg has a lot to offer!

Yes, there are a lot of bad places-to-stay, but if you know where to look, there are also a lot of gorgeous, stylish places in Brandenburg! That's why I created The Staycation Collection, to only show the affordable, beautiful places - you should check it out ;)

Good try but can't replace southern weather

It s all beautiful in their own way but the need to go south is not only because of the scenery but because of the weather 😭

Hum that’s a pretty weak list apart from the first tip, if I may say!

Why not add to the list instead of complaining. Oh. That’s all you know how to do
