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.

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

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.

Cathedral of Augsburg

With its 62-metre-high towers and widely visible silhouette, the mighty Cathedral of Augsburg belongs to Augsburg’s most-visited attractions. This place of worship, consecrated in 807, has represented the spiritual centre of the city for over a millennium. In time, it was expanded and rebuilt several times. Numerous treasures are stored within the church. Of special importance are the romantic windows of the Prophets from the oldest glass painting series in the world, the illustrations by Hans Holbein the Elder, the impressive bronze portal from the 11th century and the delicate southern portal, to name a few.

Nymphenburg Palace and Park in Munich

Nymphenburg is a European masterpiece, a story book of Bavarian history and an example of architecture and landscape design in seldom-seen harmony.

Fuggerei Augsburg

The Fuggerei, the world's first welfare housing project, was founded by the wealthy merchant Jakob Fugger in 1516. Hardworking, honest but poor citizens were taken in and given fully furnished homes that even included cutlery. Featuring eight lanes and three gates, the settlement is known as a 'town within a town' and comprises 67 two-storey houses and 147 apartments, its own church, fountains, town walls and gates, which are still closed every evening at 10pm by the nightwatchman. The annual basic rent for an apartment is, to this day, one Rhenish guilder – a nominal amount equivalent to just 88 euro cents.

Cochem Castle

Proudly enthroned above Cochem on mighty cliffs, you will find the venerable Cochem Castle (built circa 1,000 AD) with its unequalled layout, bay windows and battlements. Impregnable upon the prominent mount and rising over 100 metres above the Moselle, it is regarded as the highest hill fortress along the river.
