Explore and enjoy – the best of Germany
Centres of learning, the arts, enjoyment: DE Magazin Deutschland invites you on a voyage of discovery through Germany. The lavishly illustrated edition takes you to museums and manufactories, universities and opera houses, vineyards and gourmet kitchens. Essays, interviews, portraits present these treasure troves and people involved in them.
The latest issue of DE Magazin Deutschland takes you to places where quality and sustainability play a central role – for example, Germany’s manufactories, where the highest standards of craftsmanship have been maintained for generations in combination with the courage to engage in innovation. These centres of skilled handicraft are currently experiencing a renaissance as their high-quality products become increasingly popular.
Germany also does outstanding work in other areas – for example, in research and the arts. A large group of strong universities has had a powerful influence on the country’s higher education landscape, and researchers who trained in Germany are internationally sought-after. The same applies to the “sound makers”: German conductors lead orchestras from Prague to New York, while first-class ensembles in Germany attract virtuoso performers from all over the world. The fact that there are a surprisingly high number of excellent opera companies and orchestras in Germany is due in no small part to the country’s federal structure. Diversity is trumps – that also applies not only to the museums whose collections contain many amazing treasures, but also to the 38 UNESCO World Heritage sites between the North Sea and the Alps.
Enjoyment and lifestyle naturally also belong in an issue about the best of Germany. In recent years there has been a real quality revolution in vineyards along the Rhine, Ahr and Mosel, mainly due to the efforts of small-scale winegrowers. Their authentic, pure wines are the result of a return to traditional production methods. An increased focus on regional and local roots is also discernible in gourmet cooking – instead of looking towards exotic faraway places, many top chefs are today seeking high-quality products in their own backyard.
DE Magazin Deutschland has been able to obtain the services of numerous renowned authors, such as writer Martin Mosebach and political scientist Herfried Münkler as well as journalists who normally write for the daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung and Süddeutsche Zeitung and the weekly Die Zeit.
