Why do Americans Call Germany Germany?
The word Germania was used by the Romans to describe the region now known as Germany. Because English contains some Latin roots, the name Germany has continued to be used.

Germany is a federal republic in Central Europe, east of France andwest of Poland. It was divided into West Germany and East Germany(Warsaw Pact) during the Cold War (1946-199…0), after its post WorldWar II occupation. The German Empire was formed from Prussia and the former GermanicConfederation states in 1871. It was succeeded by the WeimarRepublic in 1919, and by the Nazi Reich from 1933 to 1945.
what to do in Germany is unending. Munich historical sites. Nurenberg additional historical sites. Garmisch, just south of Munich. many quaint restaurants & hotels. No far fro…m Garmisch is Oberammergau. German center for wood carvings and the passion play every 10 years (check your calender). If a tour, go to specific places & remain for a day or so. Don't take a tour where you are schedulted to VISIT 12 or 15 locations. You will be too tired to see much, too much rushing. slow down....... Added Answer: (Maserati23) If you want my advice, stay away from the tourist sites like Munich and pretty much all of Bavaria(Bayern in German) and research through the internet all the various castles and cathedrals one can find by visiting western/central German cities and towns. Within 1.5 hours from my house is the magnificent KÃ¶lner Dom, or Cologne Cathedral as you might call it, where the bones of the Magi rest in a golden coffin at the back of the alter. It's the tallest cathedral in the world and you can climb up to the top if you dare. There is also a castle nearby where the German flag was "born." Learn your basic German and get a hotel outside the city to experience the quaintness of rural German life. The closer you are to natives the better your vacation will be as you get to experience Germany for what it really is, not some Bierstein-collecting nation of Lederhosen-wearing Bavarian-hillbillies who go yodelling even so it is more an Austrian tradition.
During World War II, Americans severely disliked Germany. Thereverse is also true of Germans, since both sides were being fedmassive amounts of propaganda about the other. Cur…rently, Americansand Germans get along well, and there seems to be minimal, if any,residual animosity.
When Germany pursued rearmament in the 1930s, America had a weakresponse. America and the other Allies could have strongly objectedsince it was in direct violation of the Trea…ty of Versailles.
It depends on where you are living right. Many things can be explored.
When there was an East Germany. East and West were commonly used terms for two separate states during the Cold War, their real titles were Federal Republic of Germany (for the… west and Germany as it is now) and German Democratic Republic (for the east). In 1990 Germany was reunified after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. For further informations you should read wikipedia articles about the states and the Cold War. Of course there is still a west of Germany, namely the federal states of Nordrhein- Westfalen, Rheinland- Pfalz, Saarland and Hessen. But that is geographical.
