Perhaps you're dreaming of that Germanic smorgasbord of smoky currywurst, Bavarian beer and kartoffelpuffer (potato pancakes)? Maybe it's the bucket-list sights of Berlin that beckon: the Brandenburg Gate, the crumbling remnants of the Wall, the shimmering glass domes of the Bundestag? Or is it the backcountry that's got your wanderlust all fired up, from the snow-tipped tops of the Bavarian Alps to the icy waves of the North Sea?
Well, whatever it may be, at Hopper we have crunched all the numbers necessary to help get you to Germany in no time, using the might of our big-data research method to find the five airports in the country with the lowest average price tag for flights originating in the United States! We're nice like that.
If you're looking to make a stop-off for a speedy schnitzel, bratwurst and beer before heading elsewhere in Europe, then opting to touch down on the runways of Frankfurt is perhaps the perfect choice. Hosting just shy of 60 million passengers every year and boasting connections to the likes of Athens, Warsaw, Istanbul and Lisbon, Frankfurt Airport is now the third largest in all of Europe, not to mention the fifth cheapest to fly to in Germany, with flights from the United States averaging $1,010 round trip.
In Schanzenviertel, student bars buzz and bohemian eateries tout veggie treats aplenty. In the Hamburg-Altstadt, winding canals ring their way around the bustling shopping strips, cafes and churches of Moenckebergstrasse. All the while the city's sprawling port district echoes with the horns of tankers and the industrial creak of cranes alike. Fun-loving and full of sights, Hanseatic Hamburg is the perfect introduction to Germany as a whole, and, as the fourth cheapest entry point to the country, could even help save some euros on the ride over the Atlantic.
Berlin's biggest international hub claims the prestigious position of the third cheapest airport to fly to in Germany as a whole, boasting an average ticket price of just $919 round trip on routes heading into the capital from the United States. That's perfect for any American travelers looking to save as much cash as possible for those booming superclubs, electronica shows and techno nights that coalesce so famously around Hackescher Markt, Friedrichshain, Potsdamer Platz and Alexanderplatz after dark.
Bursting with ancient breweries and traditional Germanic architecture, Dusseldorf's picture-perfect Altstadt district is the place to go for a taste of frothy European hops, smoky sausages, sweet Rhineland wines and flavorsome shots of schnapps. And just on the northern edge of the city, Dusseldorf International Airport is now officially the second cheapest entry point to Germany, boasting an average ticket price on routes originating in the United States of just $904 round trip.
A measly $898 is the average amount American travelers are currently paying to hop across the Atlantic Ocean to Berlin Schoenefeld Airport and back, making the German capital's second largest international gateway the cheapest spot to fly to in the country! So forget counting the coins and start planning that tour of central Berlin, weaving between the glass-domed Reichstag, the Neoclassical effigies of the Brandenburg Gate, the sandbags of Checkpoint Charlie and the lawns of the famous Tiergarten!
