Have you ever considered spending a holiday in Germany? It is a beautiful country in the heart of Europe that has something to offer for everybody's taste - quaint historic towns that are ideal for a relaxing vacation, metropolitan cities with great culture and buzzing nightlife, sandy beaches in the North and majestic mountains in the South.
"Live Like a German" (http://www.live-like-a-german.com) recently launched a novel travel web site focusing on Germany vacation rentals, unique vacation packages, and detailed travel guides that provide details on how Germany visitors can "Live like a German" during their Germany vacation.The site offers a combination of user generated and editorially enhanced content related to Germany travel guides, insider travel tips, and Germany vacation packages, and lets user book vacation rental apartments in Germany.
A German couple that immigrated to the US ten years ago runs this amazing (recently launched) web site. As Germans they can provide their users with all the insider tips about where to go and what to do even in the most secluded areas of the country, and at the same time they have lived in the US long enough to know what Americans really like.
"User generated content is great, but needs to be polished most of the time before it is really useful." says Bettina Kraft, co-founder of Live Like a German. In her own words: "We built a process to retrieve raw content from local property owners and local residents in Germany, which is then used by our editorial team as a basis for generating high quality travel insider tips and vacation packages that help our users to make a decision on where to go and what to do during their Germany vacation."
Unlike the typical tourist who stays in a hotel and visits "typical" tourist attractions, customers of Live Like a German will experience Germany and its culture from a more personal angle. They can stay in a vacation apartment within an historic old town, and even shop and prepare their own food, if they like. They can really "live like a German" on their vacation.

Written by Germans, who know from first-hand experience what they are talking about, the texts are short and sweet and include pictures as well as links for further reading. The site includes almost 500 vacation apartments, over 600 travel guides, and about 50 comprehensive vacation packages and trip plans around popular vacation themes.
