Books & Movies for Germany Trip

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a 2 week trip in July to Germany -- Berlin, Erfurt, Mainz, and Munich. First time to visit Germany. Before my last trip (to Paris), I read a travelogue on Fodor's forum that often referred to the book The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris by David McCullough and the Woody Allen movie Midnight in Paris. I enjoyed both before the trip, plus another book recommended by a friend, The Seven Ages of Paris, by Alistair Horne and several mysteries by Cara Black set in Paris. Does anyone have recommendations on what to read or watch before a trip to Germany? I'm fairly familiar with World War II and don't want to dwell so much on it. Novels are my favorite but travelogues, memoirs, short histories are good too. I have read several of the Bernie Gunther mysteries by Phillip Kerr set in Berlin during 1930s and 1940s. Thanks for any suggestions --
