You are imposing Danish sentence structure on an English sentence; we would say, 'are you looking forward to travelling to Germany?' (We would not use 'you' again.

They could be asking one person whether they're looking forward to a family trip to German.

This is REALLY awkward English. We'd likely say something more like: Are you looking forward to you trip to Germany. Or: Are you looking forward to your Germany trip?

Can somebody explain to me why this sequence of words? My translation would be "Glæder du at rejser til Tyskland?"

In US English, anyway, traveling (one l) is preferred, though both are correct. https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/traveling
