People who work in Germany have an average of 28 days of paid vacation per year. Many of them like to travel on their vacation - for example, to Spain or Italy. Mediterranean countries are among the most sought-after destinations for travelers from Germany. Some people fly further away to other continents. But domestic vacations are also very popular. The sea or the mountains - the North Sea and Baltic Sea coasts or the Bavarian Alps – attract most people. The water temperature in the North Sea or Baltic Sea rarely reaches more than 20 degrees Celsius, even in the middle of summer. Only courageous people dare to take a dip. In the winter, many people like to go skiing in the Alps. If you like museums, concerts or clubs, you can go on a city trip to Berlin, Hamburg or Munich, to name a few places.

Farm vacations are popular with families with children or people looking for relaxation. There, adults can recover from everyday stress, and children can enjoy many new experiences, like petting and feeding animals or milking cows. Many people in Germany also like to go on spa vacations for a relaxing break. Spa resorts are usually located in quiet regions and are equipped with a spa area. They often offer courses, like yoga classes, and serve healthy food with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Mr. Strobel's deluxe four-star hotel is one of them. But Harry isn't interested in any of that because he only has one thought in mind: how to get out of the time warp
