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.

Island of Sylt

The largest North Frisian island is a popular destination for fine food and water sports. Located off Schleswig-Holstein's North Sea coast, Sylt also has lots to offer when it comes to health and wellness.

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'.

Borkum Island

Borkum, which belongs in part to the Lower Saxony Wadden Sea National Park, is the largest of the seven East Frisian islands, covering almost 31 square kilometres. Holidaymakers come for its mild maritime climate and unspoilt surroundings.

Bauhaus and its sites in Weimar and Dessau (UNESCO World Heritage)

As a university of design, the Bauhaus School revolutionised 20th century art and architecture around the world. Today the original buildings in Weimar and Dessau, along with a range of museums and exhibitions, provide an insight into a movement that still seems innovative today.

Müritz National Park

Kirde-Saksa madaliku Mecklenburgi järveala tuntuimast ja suurimast järvest Müritzist idas asub Müritzi rahvuspark. Läbi rohkem kui 130 järve, igivanade pöögimetsade ja saladuslike soodega imelise maastiku viib 660 km pikkuses teid.

Bavarian Forest National Park

Saksamaa kaguosas asuvas Baieris asutati 1970. a esimene Saksa rahvuspark ja 1997. a laiendati seda 243 ruutkilomeetri võrra.

Berlin Cathedral

Built on the northern part of an island in the river Spree, Berlin Cathedral is the city's largest religious building and holds great significance for the Protestant Church in Germany. Year after year, it attracts many thousands of visitors from all over Germany and abroad – and of all faiths and beliefs. Built between 1894 and 1905 to plans by Julius Raschdorff in the Italian high renaissance and baroque style, the cathedral is one of the most important church buildings in Germany. The main entrance is reached through the pleasure garden.

Berlin Zoo

More than 18,000 animals captivate visitors in the heart of Berlin. The exotic animal houses and naturalistic enclosures are home to rare animals such as gorillas and kiwis.

Leipzig Zoo

Dating back over 120 years and with a host of historical buildings, Leipzig Zoo is one of the oldest and most famous zoos in Germany but is also one of the most modern. Heidi, the cross-eyed opossum, brought it to the attention of the world.

Historic Centres of Stralsund and Wismar

The grandeur and riches of the Hanseatic League in the 14th century could hardly be more vividly illustrated than in the historic centres of Stralsund and Wismar. Both towns boast virtually unchanged medieval layouts and extensively preserved architectural heritage from the brick Gothic period.
