Cornucopia’s travel guide

Germany


Germany is the Western European country with the closest ties to Turkey, and cultural links are strong. Before the Second  World War many German professors were invited to to teach in Turkey, where archaeologists had been active since Heinrich Schliemann uncovered the riuins of Troy, making the museums of Berlin a highlight of any European foray. In the meantime guest workers arriving in the 1960s and 70s have ensured that doner kebabs are the nation’s favourite food, outselling McDonald’s and Burger King combined in an industry worth around €3billion.
