2013 is rapidly drawing to a close, but you can be certain that there will be just as much to look forward to and discover in Germany next year, too. One of the key focus areas for 2014 is 'UNESCO World Heritage – Sustainable cultural and natural tourism'. Germany has 38 UNESCO World Heritage sites as part of an incredibly diverse cultural landscape. From industrial heritage to historical town centres, from castles and palaces to unspoilt scenery, every region has something new to discover. The world heritage sites are popular with all ages: active seniors, young people and families alike. Most of the attractions are also accessible to all.
