As a sustainable destination for health and wellness, the region is aiming for more, and its Allgäu brand logo can only be used once a strict set of sustainability criteria has been met.

Hainich National Park

Nekada zatvorena vojna zona, šumsko područje Hainich na zapadu Türingena, u kojem prevladavaju crvene bukve, u međuvremenu je proglašeno nacionalnim parkom. Danas je to najveće povezano mješovito šumsko područje Europe i opisuje se kao „prašuma u središtu Njemačke”.

Allianz Arena

For all fans of the beautiful game, the chance to soak up the atmosphere at the awe-inspiring Allianz Arena is one not to be missed. Whether it's a Bundesliga battle, Champions League thriller or an international game, any match held in this masterpiece by star Swiss architects Herzog & De Meuron is sure to be an unforgettable experience. If you wish to enjoy the ultimate buzz, deafening chants and goosebumps galore along with 75,000 other spectators, this is the ideal place. Guided stadium tours offer a fascinating behind-the-scenes insight into one of Europe's most modern and, as many would have it, beautiful stadiums.

Burghausen Castle

Originally built as a Gothic fortification, Burghausen Castle bears witness to an exciting chapter in Bavarian history. It has stood sentinel over the surrounding countryside for more than a thousand years.

Geierlay rope bridge

At a height of 100 metres, Germany's longest rope bridge opens up a unique view of the Hunsrück mountains to walkers and nature enthusiasts.

Nuremberg Christmas market

On the Hauptmarkt of the historic Old Town the 'Christ Child' ceremoniously opens the world famous Nuremburg Christmas market. The unique Christmas city presents a medieval atmosphere, the original Nuremburg gingerbread, Nuremburg Bratwurst, and the largest Feuerzangenbowle in the world. Atmospheric Advent and Christmas concerts in the churches, a traditional nativity play in the baroque church of St. Egidien and the Spitalgasse, Children’s Christmas on Hans-Sachs-Platz, Partner City Market on Rathausplatz, crafts and arts in the Handwerkerhof, a parade by lamp light to the castle and rides on the post carriages – Nuremburg is turned into a unique all-out Christmas experience.

Hambach Castle

High above the Rhine on the Palatinate wine route stands a well-fortified castle, whose unassuming appearance belies its importance in the narrative of German history.

Therme Erding spa resort

Therme Erding near Munich, home to Europe's biggest waterslide park, GALAXY Erding, is a state-of-the-art thermal baths complex in which the whole family can make a splash. The slides are suitable for children aged six and above.

Hofbräuhaus beer hall in Munich

A truly unmissable Bavarian experience awaits at the famous Hofbräuhaus beer hall at Am Platzl in the old quarter. Originally a brewery, today it is an internationally acclaimed 'beer temple'. Locals can be seen dressed in traditional costume, drinking Munich beer from the famous Mass, a one-litre tankard, and enjoying traditional hearty specialities served up with a good dose of Bavarian hospitality. Probably the largest beer hall in the world serving some 30,000 guests every day, it is always noisy and full of beer-fuelled cheer.
