Wartburg Castle in Eisenach (UNESCO World Heritage)

Large, imposing and steeped in history: high above the town of Eisenach sits Wartburg Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1999. One of the best-preserved medieval German fortresses and almost 1,000 years old, it is possibly Germany's most famous castle, and certainly one of its most important.

44
DDR Museum Berlin

The DDR Museum is the only museum dedicated to life in the former GDR and gives an extended insight into coming to terms with everyday life under the Stasi and the wall. The permanent exhibition takes the maxim "history you can touch" quite literally: Information and exhibits are hidden away behind drawers, cabinets and doors. The exhibits can be handled and used, the kitchen still smells original as in the GDR, and the Trabi invites you on a virtual tour. The DDR museum is perhaps the most interactive museum in the world and the exhibition is something to experience. With over 500,000 visitors annually, the DDR Museum is one of the top 6 most visited museums in Berlin.

44
Aachen Cathedral (UNESCO World Heritage)

Aachen is a city that lives and breathes Europe. It is practically Europe in miniature. Aachen, on the border with Belgium and the Netherlands, has encapsulated the spirit, values and ideals of Europe since the days of Charlemagne. Indeed the Charlemagne Prize for services to European unity has been awarded at Aachen's town hall since 1950.

44
Marienplatz square in Munich

The square is dominated by the neo-Gothic New Town Hall with its imposing facade and the sound of the delightful carillon in the town hall tower. Close by are some of Munich's most exclusive shopping streets, markets and beer gardens, as well as the trio of famous city gates – Isartor, Sendlinger Tor and Karlstor.

48
Television tower at Alexanderplatz square in Berlin

Berlin's 368-metre high television tower is the tallest building in Germany. It was erected in Berlin's historic centre right next to the medieval Church of St. Mary close to the Rotes Rathaus and immediately to the west of Alexanderplatz square. At a height of more than 200 metres, its observation platforms offer a magnificent panoramic view of the city. The tower was opened in 1969, although apparently the architects were not invited to the ceremony. The reason was that those in power at the time were annoyed about the cross-shaped reflection on the outer panels – known as 'the Pope's revenge'.

49
Wilhelmshöhe Palace and Park in Kassel (UNESCO World heritage)

Covering 240 hectares in the north Hessen city of Kassel, baroque Wilhelmshöhe Park is designed in the style of an English landscape garden and is Europe's largest hillside park. Together with Wilhelmshöhe Palace, it forms a unique whole that combines culture, nature and landscape architecture in perfect harmony.
