Germany is located in the heart of Europe and is surrounded by 9 neighbouring countries. The North Sea and the Baltic form natural borders to the north.

Washed by the North Sea and the Baltic, dotted with forestland, crisscrossed by rivers, Northern Germany is an inviting blend of ruggedness and generous abundance. On the island of Sylt, the country’s northernmost point, wild rose bushes and heather give way to dunes as the land nears the shore. Traditionally, this is where the elite families of Hamburg come for an elegant seaside getaway, reaching the beaches by bicycle and crossing the dunes on handsome boardwalks, to relax on the sand in the shelter of a wicker cabin. Today Sylt is a discreet resort where vacation-goers, after a windsurfing session or a Nordic sauna, retreat for the night to quaint thatched-roofed houses.

The year is 1901. Far from the narrow lanes and cabarets of Montmartre, Guillaume Apollinaire is seeking new horizons among the vine-covered hillsides of the Rhine Valley. The literary father of surrealism succumbs to the seductions of the Rhenish Night, discovers the town of Bacharach with its half-timbered houses, and caresses with pen and ink the pale, radiant face of a nymph from German folklore, the Lorelei: a “witchlike blonde” seated on her rock, “her Rhine-colored eyes, her sun-like hair” emanating their mortal glow. On a scrap of paper, the myth is transformed by the poet’s inspiration.
