escola sede: "Take a Minute, take Five!"

Mais um texto no âmbito do desafio "Take a minute, take Five!". Desta feita é o contributo da aluna,  Joana Moreira, 9.ºGna subcategoria "The World around us".


Germany is located in the heart of Europe and it is a country of many hidden gems. Germany is a culturally and historically rich country which is home of old-fashioned architecture, castles, palaces, cathedrals and natural landscapes but also well-known philosophers such as Nietesehe, Kant or Karl Max. Germany is also known for notorious composers like Bach, Schumann, Wagner or Beethoven, maybe that’s why the country is called the “Land of Poets and thinkers “.

Landscape: The north flatters out to a wide plain that stretches to the North Sea while the central and southern are covered by forested hills and mountains cut through by river valleys such as the Danube, Main and Rhine.

Food and drinks: Germans love sausages, bread and beer. Bratwurst sausages have become the symbol of the country's gastronomy. Germany has 1,000 varieties of sausages, which are flavoured with different spices. They also have over 300 kinds of bread, such as Brotehen, Pretzel, etc

Beer is undoubtedly the most famous drink all around the country and a huge part of German culture. Actually there are 7,000 different types of beer.

Castles: It is estimated that there are 25,000 castles all around the country. The most famous castle in the Wartburg castle (Eisenach) maybe because it was where Luther produced the first-ever translation of the New Testament in German.

Some curiosities:

• Gummy bears were invented there by Hans Rigel .

• The first Christmas tree was created in Germany.

• It was the first country to adopt daylight saving time.

Wildlife and nature: There are 97 nature reserves and the biggest one is located in the Black forest.

The flat northern coast is home to sea life and wading birds while the forested hills in the south have wildcats, boars, the Alpine ibex and many other large mammals.
