What are Germany’s greatest attractions? A difficult question because there are hundreds of interesting sites spread all over the country. Here is a small selection of highlights:
You will find a romantic Medieval town with narrow, cobblestoned alleyways and half-timbered houses, a beautiful market square, townhall, church and castle basically every hundred kilometers.
Choose Lübeck or Bremen in the north, Quedlinburg or Erfurt in the east, or Heidelberg, Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Bamberg, Regensburg or Passau in southern Germany to get a feeling for Germany’s well-preserved historic towns, many of them being World-Heritage Sites.
Large parts of Germany’s Central Uplands are densely forested. Go to the Schwarzwald (Black Forest), the Thuringian Forest, or the Bavarian Forest and take a hike through pristine forest land.
Rhine and Moselle
Travel the “Romantic Rhine” between Mainz and Koblenz with its many castles. Follow the meandering Mosel River to the Roman city of Trier.
Get an impression of the German Alps in Berchtesgaden or Oberstdorf. Visit the fairytale castle Neuschwanstein and take a break at one of the many stunning glacial lakes in Bavaria.
Visit Berlin, the dynamic capital of Germany with its impressive architecture. See the Reichstag, the Brandenburg Gate and experience some of the finest museums in the country.
