Flights to Germany have dropped as low as $327 round-trip from various U.S. cities. Most shocking, the lowest fare we’re seeing originates from Los Angeles (LAX), which is not something we see often.
Many of the cities have deals to multiple German cities, so if you’d prefer to visit a different city than listed be sure to check Google flights to see if the deal still works. Additionally, a lot of these deals are available around the holidays so you may get experience the iconic Christmas markets.
