Creative Germany

Germany has traditionally been known as the 'country of poets and philosophers'. But even now, people in Germany are still setting trends every day, coming up with innovative ideas and pushing the boundaries of art.

Martin Luther

One decade to mark half a millennium. In the ten years between 2008 and 2017, exhibitions, festivals and concerts across Germany are celebrating the anniversary of Luther nailing his theses to the door of the Castle Church.

Active holidays

Variety is the spice of life on Germany's walking trails, whether you're searching for a geocache, Nordic walking, out in your snowshoes or just taking a stroll.

Shopping

Germany's scenic routes are ideal for discovering the country by car, motorbike or bicycle. Choose from over 150 diverse routes, each featuring a different aspect of Germany's regions.

More than 1,000 wellness and beauty hotels, 350 quality-certified health resorts and spas and a fabulous range of specialist clinics. Germany does you good, Germany is great for your health – you'll go home feeling as good as new!

The Wadden Sea, UNESCO World Natural Heritage

The Wadden Sea World Natural Heritage is located on the North Sea coast. Covering an area of about 10,000 square kilometres, it includes the two Wadden Sea National Parks of Schleswig Holstein and Lower Saxony, and the Wadden Sea conservation area in the Netherlands.

Buzzing Berlin

What does Berlin have that other world cities don't? Well, first of all, there's the locals, whose rough yet friendly charm is all part of the Berlin experience. Add to that an incredible array of sights that reflect not only the city's newfound swagger but also its great history and the dramatic events of the 20th century.

HafenCity in Hamburg

Explore the far corners of the globe and return via Hamburg – travel itineraries don't get much better than that. Gateway to the world, beautiful seafaring hub, maritime capital of the north – even the normally reserved locals find it hard to conceal their pride in their home city, its ambience and its cosmopolitan charm.

New neighbours

Görlitz – the most easterly town in Germany and for many the most beautiful. Perhaps not surprising when you consider the town has over 3,500 architectural monuments spanning 500 years. Most have been lovingly restored and are a real visual treat for visitors. Among the grand old churches, mighty fortifications and ornate facades, there is a wonderful, vibrant and friendly town just waiting to be discovered.

Klimahaus and German Emigration Centre in Bremerhaven

Bremen: a regional capital and trading city with a long-standing maritime heritage. Bremerhaven: 1,000 years Bremen's junior but still steeped in history and with many tales to tell. These two cities together form Germany's smallest federal state – a world of experiences that is cosmopolitan, welcoming and full of pleasures, open to the new and respectful of the old.

A tower steeped in history

The Berlin Wall divided Germany’s present-day capital for 28 years. Today, you need a helping hand to explore the history of the former border installations and to find what remains of them. One of the best ways is by bike.

Church of Our Lady in Dresden

There are many ways to interpret or define culture. But it can be easily summarised with just one word: Dresden. The sheer abundance and splendour of the city's cultural treasures are enough to take your breath away. And since Dresden also just happens to be set amidst a stunning river landscape, your amazement is soon accompanied by pure delight.

Leipzig Festival of Lights

Leipzig's key role in setting the rhythm for the peaceful revolution of 1989 is testament to the city's musical endowment. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, Leipzig was labelled 'City of Heroes' – a title which could also be in reference to the many great musicians, kapellmeister and composers who are arguably more popular and more prominent here than anywhere else in the world.

The Bauhaus

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.

Autostadt in Wolfsburg

Wolfsburg, founded on 1 July 1938 and one of Germany's few new cities established in the 20th century, has had a short but eventful history. Many a trend in the revival of West Germany can be traced back to the city. It is a typical and successful example of a planned urban development, and its history is closely bound with Volkswagen AG

Hainich National Park

The former military exclusion zone of Hainich forest in western Thuringia has become a national park. It is Europe's largest unbroken area of mixed deciduous forest, dominated by the common beech.

The famous Frankfurt skyline

Frankfurt is first and foremost a city of modernity. Business, architecture and Europe's third-largest airport – they're all here and they're all at the cutting edge. Perhaps that's why Frankfurt has grown a particular fondness for museums that vary greatly in terms of size, style and subject matter. The city prides itself on always staying ahead of the times, whilst preserving traditions at the same time.

The Green Belt

Germany has a wealth of unspoilt natural landscapes. Its flora and fauna are wonderfully diverse and often unique – perfect for experiencing nature at its best.

The Ruhr region

Formerly Germany's coal-mining region, the Ruhrgebiet forms one of the largest conurbations in Europe with 5 million residents and is now known for its diverse and vibrant cultural scene. Bochum, Dortmund, Duisburg, Essen, Oberhausen and many other towns and cities combine to form a fascinating urban area that is full of surprises.

Rügen Island

Rügen in the Baltic Sea is Germany's largest island and offers a variety of landscape features and things to see and do.

Wine and wine experiences

The German Wine Route, running through the Palatinate countryside from Schweigen-Rechtenbach to Bockenheim, certainly doesn't stint on its delights. Simply follow the signs showing a bunch of grapes and enjoy 85 kilometres of pure joie de vivre, fine wines, congeniality and award-winning cuisine.

Europa-Park

High-octane thrills are on the agenda at Europa-Park in Rust, along with themed European worlds and spectacular events with a Europe-wide reputation.

Völklingen Ironworks

The Völklingen Ironworks are the world’s only surviving smelting works from the Golden Age of the iron and steel industry.

The Danube

The Danube: songs have been written about it, composers have dedicated pieces of music to it and it has been the source of countless stories. Along the Danube Cycle Route it's easy to see why this mighty river has proven such an inspiration to so many.
