From the best direct flights and visa advice, to Vietnam holiday tips covering white beaches and high-end coastal adventures, here’s how to travel from Germany to Vietnam.
With direct flights between Frankfurt in Germany to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, and Berlin to Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City, plus connecting flights easily available between other cities in Germany and Vietnam, travelling from Germany to Vietnam is simple. With a flight time of 11 and 12 hours too, the trip from Europe to Asia isn’t very long. Some of the most common airlines operating between Germany and Vietnam include Vietnam Airlines, Thai Airways and Qatar Airways.
For German citizens staying in Vietnam for less than 15 days, a visa is not required. For those visiting Vietnam for longer than 15 days and up to 30 days, a visa is required. There are a few ways to obtain a visa, but the best way is to organise it in advance of travelling. Applying online
for an e-visa is the easiest method and this can be done up to six months before travel. There’s a Vietnamese Embassy in Berlin for those who want to do it in person.
For German travellers who love sun and sea holidays, Vietnam is proving to be an ever-popular destination. With thousands of miles of coastline and warm weather to be found in different regions of Vietnam throughout the year, the trip from Germany to Vietnam is a logical one. In particular, enjoying some beach time at Da Nang and Nha Trang is a favourite thing to do, with white sands and water sports aplenty. Junk boat trips around Halong Bay are also perfect for sunny days mixed with coastal adventures.
Vietnam and Germany enjoy friendly links in terms of business too, with the presence of many German businesses in the country, including Siemens, Mercedes-Benz and Deutsch Bank. Many of these congregate around Ho Chi Minh City, with its global feeling and international communities. For those who want a little taste of home when in Ho Chi Minh City, there are a number of German restaurants serving proud German locals, including Gartenstadt Restaurant and the BMV Pub and Grill.
Experiencing Vietnamese culture while enjoying a high level of service are also important to German visitors to Vietnam. A range of accommodation price points are available across the country – with 5* cruise ships in Halong Bay even on offer – while intimate home stay opportunities offer the ideal mixture of comfort and integration into local cultures.
