The TOP 100 sights and attractions in Germany

The most popular sights for 2016!

Situated in the heart of Europe, Germany has plenty of fantastic tourist attractions and unique sights to offer. Visitors from all over the world travel to Germany to see architectural treasures and fascinating places of natural beauty. The German National Tourist Board (GNTB) is interested in gathering the most popular attractions and has its international visitors name their German favorites. More than 40.000 travelers to Germany from 66 countries named their personal favorite.

Black Forest

Nejmladší německý národní park okouzluje návštěvníky svojí přirozenou krásou. Na procházkách temně zelenými lesy poznáte divokou stránku přírody a uvidíte daleko do krajiny.

Moselle Valley

The Moselle, Saar and Ruwer rivers twist and turn in narrow loops through countryside where the Celts and Romans first cultivated wine 2,000 years ago. As a wine region, the Moselle is the oldest in Germany and the largest with vines on steep slopes. Terraced hillsides and precipitous slopes, which face either south or south-west, create beneficial microclimates for wine grapes but also rare plants and animals. The sublime rieslings grown in these conditions in the Moselle, Saar and Ruwer vineyards rank among the finest white wines in the world with their wonderful mineral notes.

Romantic Road

The Romantic Road whisks you away on a journey of approximately 400 km from Würzburg to Füssen in the Allgäu . Anyone visiting this route is greatly rewarded with treasures such as magnificent stately homes, palaces of courtly splendour and romantic medieval timber-framed houses following in swift succession. This route also lives up to its name when travelled by bicycle or on foot.

Jak se nazývá hlavní město spolkové země Durynsko?

Erfurt, hlavní město spolkové země Duryňsko, vděčí za svůj úspěšný rozvoj mimo jiné výhodné poloze na křižovatce starých německých a evropských obchodních cest, velmi časnému otevření tržišť s širokou ochrannou zónou, čilému obchodnímu ruchu a vzniku královské falce. Nepřicházeli sem jen korunovaní panovníci a kupci, uvítání se dostalo i kultuře a literatuře, duchu a duchovnosti a konečně hostům z celého světa.

Brandenburg Gate

No other monument in Berlin is as famous around the world as Brandenburg Gate, built between 1789 and 1791 to plans by C. G. Langhans on Pariser Platz in the heart of the city. After the Berlin Wall was built in 1961, Brandenburg Gate became impassable for 28 years. As a signature attraction and symbol of German reunification, it now represents the past and present of the German capital in exemplary fashion. The gate is supported by six Doric columns, forming five passageways with pedestrian-only access. The famous quadriga depicting the goddess of victory, Victoria, riding a four-horse chariot was added in 1794.

Mount Zugspitze and Partnach Gorge in Garmisch-Partenkirchen

The Zugspitze is one of the most famous mountain peaks in the Alps. Measuring 2,962m, it is not only Germany's highest mountain, but also one of the most popular destinations for visitors from all over the world.

Ludwigsburg Residential Palace

From modest hunting lodge to sprawling, three-winged palace. Few European regents were able to realise their absolutist dreams in as literal and grandiose a way as the rulers of Ludwigsburg.

Maulbronn Monastery (UNESCO World Heritage)

Over a period of around 400 years, the monks built a remarkable monastery at Maulbronn, which became a distinguishing feature of the surrounding landscape. Today, this former Cistercian abbey, which is situated between Heidelberg and Stuttgart, is not only the most complete and best-preserved monastic complex north of the Alps, it is also a particularly fine example of medieval architecture and, since 1993, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Loreley rock in the Upper Middle Rhine Valley (UNESCO World Heritage)

Celebrated in song and shrouded in legend – the Loreley rock is a 194-metre-high slate cliff towering above the narrowest point of the Rhine near St. Goarshausen.

Hamburg´s Speicherstadt warehouse district (UNESCO World Heritage)

This is where the roots of the modern European city of Hamburg lie: the historical Speicherstadt and Kontorhaus district with the famous Chilehaus are synonymous with Hamburg's rise as a global trading power – and are today a vibrant cultural quarter. Having survived the years without damage or alteration, this historical ensemble has now been granted UNESCO World Heritage status.
