Pinakothek galleries in Munich

The Pinakothek der Moderne not only brings together four museums under one roof – Sammlung Moderne Kunst, Staatliche Graphische Sammlung München, Technische Universität Architecture Museum and Neue Sammlung – it's also part of an even larger group of museums: the Munich Art Quarter, which in addition to the Pinakothek der Moderne includes the Alte Pinakothek, Neue Pinakothek, Museum Brandhorst, Antikensammlungen, Glyptothek and Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus.

83
Wuppertal suspended monorail

Built in around 1900, it still provides a safe and reliable way of getting around. The Schwebebahn covers a 13.3km route through the city suspended twelve metres off the ground. As a public transport system, its cult status is virtually unrivalled. Over the course of its history, more than 1.5 billion people have travelled on the monorail and experienced what it feels like to hover over the Wupper valley. The train takes 35 minutes to complete its journey and passengers can get on or off at any one of 20 stops along the way.

83
Jewish Museum in Berlin

Conceived by renowned architect Daniel Libeskind, the building translates a complex system of philosophical ideas and concepts into an impressive expression of form. From the outside, the virtually windowless building resembles an unravelled Star of David. The museum houses a huge exhibition about the life and history of German-speaking Jews. The main axis – the 'void' – runs through the various sections of the museum, symbolising the voids in Jewish history.

89
Heide Park Resort – one highlight after another

There almost aren't enough superlatives to describe Heide Park Resort, which opened in 1978. Set within a beautiful landscaped park near Soltau in Lüneburg Heath, this is one of Germany's biggest theme parks.

91
Old Town of Nuremberg & Dürer-House

Between 1471 and 1528 Nuremberg was home to the famous artist Albrecht Dürer. The Dürer House is the only artists' residence of the Renaissance in northern Europe to be preserved largely in its original form. In the media station, the life and legacy of the artist is explored in digital format using 43 selected works. Historically significant copies of his most important paintings can be seen in the recently opened Dürersaal.

94
UNESCO World Heritage Mines of Rammelsberg, Historic Town of Goslar and Upper Harz Water Management System

Reminders of Germany's earliest industrial heritage: documenting around 1,000 years of mining history, the Mines of Rammelsberg on the outskirts of the beautiful old town of Goslar were once the largest interconnected repositories of copper, lead and zinc ore in the world. Energy for the mine was supplied by the Upper Harz water management system, the world's foremost pre-industrial water management system for the mining industry.

94
Freiburg old quarter

Freiburg's old quarter is dominated by the medieval minster. Another characteristic feature are the much-loved Bächle, a system of narrow, flat channels that runs for several kilometres and is filled with water from the Dreisam river. Other attractions include a variety of beautiful ensembles and individual buildings that have been reconstructed in their original medieval style, many of them featuring decorative guild crests. Some of the town's pharmacies have a mosaic staff of Aesculapius or a mortar and pestle set into the cobbles on the pavement outside, and in front of some of the bakeries you'll see a pretzel.

94
Porsche Museum Stuttgart

The extraordinary architecture of the Porsche Museum is as impressive as the cars inside. The monolithic building looks as if it is about to take off. Around 80 vehicles and numerous smaller exhibits are on display here.
