Hallo! I’m Sharon.

I’m the founder and main writer on Germany Footsteps. I’ve been exploring Germany for over 20 years, and I can’t get enough. I love the culture, the food, the attractions and the countryside. It’s all stunning.

My aim is to provide you with a complete resource for your visit to Germany as well as the encouragement to go!

All our content is written from our personal experience. I travel around Germany as much as I can to ensure the content on this site is up-to-date, incredibly informative and helpful for you whether it’s your first trip to Germany or your twentieth. It’s a hard job but someone has to do it.
