Römerberg square in Frankfurt/Main

Frankfurt's Römer town hall is one of the most beautiful historical town halls in Germany and has been the seat of local government for more than 600 years. Both its exterior, a reconstructed triple-gabled facade in the neo-Gothic style with many decorative elements, and the imperial hall inside are well worth seeing. Römerberg square in the heart of Frankfurt's old quarter dates back to the Hohenstaufen period. It enjoyed its heyday in the late Middle Ages when it was the scene of Frankfurt's trade fairs and great ceremonies such as the coronations of German emperors.

New Town Hall of Hannover

"All paid for in cash, your majesty" announced the chief city clerk Heinrich Tramm with great pride when the New Town Hall was officially opened by Emperor William II in 1913. Hannover paid more than ten million Marks back then for this magnificent construction built on 6,026 beechwood posts. In the hall beneath the almost 100m high dome there are four models depicting Hannover in the Middle Ages, 1939, 1945 and the present day – a firm favourite with visitors. The sloping elevator up to the dome is one of a kind: it sets off vertically and then changes its course to an angle of 17 degrees. From this vantage point you can enjoy fabulous views out over the city.

Völklingen Ironworks (UNESCO World Heritage)

The Völklingen Ironworks are the world's only surviving smelting works from the Golden Age of the iron and steel industry in the 19th and 20th century. In 1994 these gigantic ironworks covering an area of 600,000m² became the first industrial monument to be inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage list. Today, they are a cultural attraction, themed discovery park and science centre rolled into one.

Old town of Goerlitz

Görlitz – nejvýchodnější a pro mnohé nejkrásnější město Německa. Není divu, když je užaslému návštěvníkovi hrdě prezentováno přes 3 500 většinou láskyplně zrestaurovaných památek, starých až 500 let. Toto nádherné, mladé, přátelské město mezi bohatě zdobenými fasádami, mohutnými opevněními a důstojnými kostely přímo vybízí k objevování.

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).

Cathedral of Our Dear Lady Munich

With its onion-shaped towers, their green domes, the Devil´s Footstep and the view of the Alps, the imposing Late Gothic landmark at the Marienplatz in Munich is unparalleled. The cathedral was built by the Archbishop of Munich and Freising in 1468–1494. Despite its capacity for 20,000 people, the place of worship shows an unusual “less is more” attitude. The 3 aisle brick construction, with choir stalls that are quintuple-cornered, houses the family vault of the Wittelsbach Elector family. It is not only the 100-metre onion domes, the numerous chapels and the precious artistic treasures that make this beautiful yet modest church special. Included among its legendary attractions are the Devil’s Footstep near the entrance and the fantastic view of Munich all the way to the Alps, which is available to anyone who climbs the southern tower.

Berlin-Hohenschönhausen Memorial

The Hohenschönhausen memorial site is a spacious area steeped in history, as well as a museum and memorial of the socialist GDR regime. Well-preserved and in sound condition, this destination is one of the most important memorial sites for the victims of communist dictatorship in Germany. It was originally a socialist warehouse, before becoming a central Soviet remand centre for Germany, and finally a prison for the GDR’s Ministry for State Security (Stasi). Around 40,000 people were detained there from 1946 to 1989. Since the construction of the Berlin Wall in 1961, the majority of the inmates were potential escapees, those aiding people wishing to escape and those attempting to emigrate. Guided tours through the Stasi prison offer an insight into the prison conditions and into the fate of the prisoners, bringing to life the experience of persecution during the communist dictatorship.

88
Erfurt Cathedral

Unmissable highlights for your sightseeing calendar are the architectonic masterpieces of the Cathedral and Church of St. Severus, which greets visitors with its silhouette long before entering Erfurt. The monumental ensemble in the cathedral square is among the most colossal construction projects of Medieval Germany. The ecclesiastical buildings stand close together and impact the cityscape, drawing the visitors in with magnetic effect. The imposing landmark, the oldest and most important church building in Erfurt, can be reached from the cathedral square via the 70 steps of the impressively tall, outdoor staircase. The multitude of artistic treasures that can be found in the cathedral can hardly put into words. Every summer, the Cathedral Steps Theatre Festival takes place and is not to be missed!

Markkleeberg Canoe Park in Leipzig offers white water rafting or tubing at one of Europe's most advanced white water facilities, where professional oarsmen and women prepare the intrepid visitors for the adventure ahead. The rapid dinghy ride is enjoyed by people of all ages and is suitable for disabled people with no prior rafting experience.
