Berlin is undoubtedly the cultural metropolis of the country and surprises even regular visitors again and again with their lively, creative atmosphere.
Hamburg, with its world-famous Speicherstadt, offers a luxurious flair, while Munich, the heart of Bavaria, invites you to take a trip to the surrounding area. Cologne in turn captivates with its Rhineland friendliness and Cologne Cathedral, the most visited building in the country.
In Germany you can explore the past millennia on the basis of many relics. Everywhere there are traces of the Romans, such as baths and aqueducts. Particularly well-known here are for example Trier and Xanten.
Furthermore, the country offers unusually many beautiful churches. Especially the Frauenkirche in Dresden and the Aachener Dom have gained international renown. With their impressive stone dome or the Renaissance buildings, they represent special evidence of sacral architecture.
The Middle Ages are also abundantly represented: Germany is famous for its numerous castles and palaces, whose restoration has been and is receiving much attention. Here are especially the castles along the Rhine and the Moselle to call.
The vineyards and hiking trails around the two rivers are among the most romantic in the country, combining relatively easy access to easily accessible attractions. On the other hand, Neuschwanstein Castle, which stands white and venerable on a wooded hill in southern Bavaria, looks as fresh as a fairy tale.
