Not just for sweet tooths: the Chocolate Museum

Near the museum entrance there is a three-metre high chocolate fountain filled with melted, velvety chocolate – everyone can dip a waffle into it. At this museum, visitors can not only see the exhibits, but also smell, taste and touch them!

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.

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.

Hamburg town hall

Built between 1886 and 1897 in the neo-Renaissance style, Hamburg's town hall is one of the most striking parliamentary and government buildings in Germany. It's also the city's pride and joy. Situated in a central location between the Alster lake and Elbe river, it is larger than Buckingham Palace with almost 650 rooms. The triple-wing granite and sandstone masterpiece with its 112m wide, beautifully decorated facade, 112m high tower and copper roof certainly makes an impact. On the side of the building facing onto Rathausmarkt square, bronze sculptures between the window recesses depict 20 kings and kaisers from the days of the Holy Roman Empire, from Charlemagne to Franz II.

DDR Museum

The DDR Museum is the only museum dedicated to life in the former GDR and gives an extended insight into coming to terms with everyday life under the Stasi and the wall. The permanent exhibition takes the maxim "history you can touch" quite literally: Information and exhibits are hidden away behind drawers, cabinets and doors. The exhibits can be handled and used, the kitchen still smells original as in the GDR, and the Trabi invites you on a virtual tour. The DDR museum is perhaps the most interactive museum in the world and the exhibition is something to experience. With over 500,000 visitors annually, the DDR Museum is one of the top 6 most visited museums in Berlin.
