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.

Hohenzollern Castle

Fortified with a multitude of towers and turrets, Hohenzollern Castle sits in splendour almost 900 metres above the Swabian Alb. This is a storybook fortress from the heyday of the neo-Gothic.

Linderhof Palace

Of the three palaces that Ludwig II actually had built, Linderhof Palace is the most inspired. A triumph of splendour and extravagance, it lies in the secluded Graswang valley.

ChocolArt chocolate market in Tübingen

As 100 top chocolatiers from Africa, North and South America and Europe gather in Tübingen's idyllic old quarter to pay homage to the cocoa bean, chocolate lovers will be in their element. This is pure indulgence for all the senses, with melt-in-the-mouth confections, handmade gourmet chocolate, therapeutic chocolate massages, luxury chocolate tastings, creative praline courses, artistic cocoa paintings, inspiring readings and unusual chocolate theatre.

Wernigerode townhall

Visible from afar: romantic Wernigerode Castle towers high above the little town north of the Harz mountains. It’s just one of many highlights on every corner in and around Wernigerode – especially in the restored old town with its colourful timber-framed houses.

German Motorbike Route

The over 10,000 km German Motorbike Route runs in the shape of a clover leaf through the country's most beautiful motorbiking regions. Curvy race circuits, the hottest biker gatherings, motorbiking highlights, motorbike museums, meals and accommodation with biker-friendly hosts – this route is far and away the best way to experience everything Germany has to offer motorcyclists.

German Alpine Road

The German Alpine Road – drive-in cinema at its very best! Welcome to a winding 450 km tour through the majestic panorama of the Bavarian Alps, from Lindau on Lake Constance to Berchtesgaden on Lake Königssee. Driving, cycling or walking this route is like travelling through the greatest hits of the Alps:

Germany Fairy Tale Route

Welcome to the home of fairies and princes, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Little Red Riding Hood and Cinderella. Let the 600 km German Fairy Tale Route transport you to the magical world of the Brothers Grimm, from their birthplace in Hanau to Bremen, the home of the famous four-legged town musicians (Tiercombo).

Deutsches Eck (German Corner), Ehrenbreitstein fortress in Koblenz

It may sound like a German bar, but the Deutsches Eck (German Corner) is actually a spit of land at the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle. It got its name from the Teutonic Order of Knights which settled here in 1216 and a monument to Kaiser Wilhelm I was built here to commemorate the unification of the German Empire. Dedicated in 1897, destroyed in 1945, declared a memorial to German unity in 1953 and reconstructed in 1993, the 37m-high monument now attracts more than 2 million visitors every year and since 2002 it has been part of the Upper Middle Rhine Valley UNESCO World Heritage site.

Suspended monorail Wuppertal

Wuppertal je největším městem a zároveň ekonomickým, vzdělávacím, průmyslovým a kulturním centrem regionu Bergisches Land. Toto „velkoměsto uprostřed zeleně“ je ovšem samozřejmě také městem s visutou lanovkou – jak ostatně zní i jeho oficiální motto. Podél této dráhy se rozkládá město hýřící sebevědomím a smyslem pro dějiny s nabídkou, nad kterou lze mnohdy jen žasnout.

Pied Piper’s house in Hamelin

With its authentic, eye-catching façade, the Pied Piper’s house in the historical old quarter is a living piece of the world of fairy tales. Built by Alderman H. Arendes in 1602–1603, the house is among the most beautiful constructions of the Weser Renaissance. The Pied Piper himself did not live in this houseit bears its name since around 1900, due to an inscription found on the side of the house, which reminds passers-by of the fairy tale about the Pied Piper. This is the oldest version of the tale of the Pied Piper, and it tells us that on 26 June 1284, 130 children were kidnapped from Hamelin by a rat-catcher with a pipe. Nowadays a restaurant serves Hamelin specialties like tasty rat tails and rat killer, a delicious liqueur, in the historic house.
