Hi, I’m Cate, your Germany Travel Planning Expert!

I not only have decades of experience traveling aaaaaaall over Germany, I’ve lived in several German cities, taught German in the US, prepared people to live and work in Germany, and even have a PhD in German Applied Linguistics. I know a lot about Germany!

I’ve helped hundreds of clients avoid the stress and overwhelm of planning an unforgettable trip to Germany. I’d love to help you, too.

If you’re wondering about things like…

  • Stick to Bavaria or can we fit in Berlin, too?
  • Drive a rental car or take public transit?
  • Is buying a rail pass a good deal or a waste of money?
  • Is our itinerary setting us up for exhaustion…or FOMO (fear of missing out)?
  • How can we get off the beaten path?
  • Should we book tickets and tours before we leave or after we arrive?
  • Which guided tours and day trips are worth the money? Or can we DIY them?
  • What do we need to know about German culture to enjoy our trip?
  • Can you take our ideas and create an itinerary for us?

We can help!
