Golden Hall in Augsburg

With its rich, gold-adorned ceremonial room in the Augsburg Town Hall, the Golden Hall is regarded as one of the most important cultural icons of Germany’s Late Renaissance. The ceiling of the 14-metre-high hall is clad with gold foil. It was completely destroyed in 1944 and reinstated in 1996 after 17 years of restoration. Since then, the Golden Hall is used as reception hall and meeting room for the city.

New Town Hall of Hannover

"All paid for in cash, your majesty" announced the chief city clerk Heinrich Tramm with great pride when the New Town Hall was officially opened by Emperor William II in 1913. Hannover paid more than ten million Marks back then for this magnificent construction built on 6,026 beechwood posts. In the hall beneath the almost 100m high dome there are four models depicting Hannover in the Middle Ages, 1939, 1945 and the present day – a firm favourite with visitors. The sloping elevator up to the dome is one of a kind: it sets off vertically and then changes its course to an angle of 17 degrees. From this vantage point you can enjoy fabulous views out over the city.

Völklingen Ironworks (UNESCO World Heritage)

The Völklingen Ironworks are the world's only surviving smelting works from the Golden Age of the iron and steel industry in the 19th and 20th century. In 1994 these gigantic ironworks covering an area of 600,000m² became the first industrial monument to be inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage list. Today, they are a cultural attraction, themed discovery park and science centre rolled into one.

Deutsches Museum in Munich

Offering around 73,000 square metres of exhibition space, the Deutsches Museum is one of the world's biggest museums of science and technology.

Römerberg square in Frankfurt/Main

Frankfurt's Römer town hall is one of the most beautiful historical town halls in Germany and has been the seat of local government for more than 600 years. Both its exterior, a reconstructed triple-gabled facade in the neo-Gothic style with many decorative elements, and the imperial hall inside are well worth seeing. Römerberg square in the heart of Frankfurt's old quarter dates back to the Hohenstaufen period. It enjoyed its heyday in the late Middle Ages when it was the scene of Frankfurt's trade fairs and great ceremonies such as the coronations of German emperors.

Old town of Goerlitz

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.

Autostadt in Wolfsburg

Autostadt is an exhibition complex in Wolfsburg, the home of the Volkswagen Group. Focused on the subject of mobility, it offers a variety of exciting attractions and activities.

Lichtenstein Castle

The historical Lichtenstein Castle is widely known as the fairy-tale castle of Baden-Württemberg. Located in Lichtenstein, it stands at around 817 metres atop a rock spur in the Swabian Alps. Inspired by the novel “Lichtenstein” by Wilhelm Hauff, who is usually better known for fairy tales, Count Wilhelm of Württemburg had the castle built in Neo-Gothic style, according to plans drawn up by the architect Heideloff, in 1840–1842.

Town hall and Roland statue in Bremen (UNESCO World Heritage)

It is one of the most beautiful town halls in Germany: the magnificent facade is a textbook example of the Weser Renaissance architecture typical of northern Germany. Along with the Roland statue, the city's very own 'statue of liberty', it still stands as a reminder of the pride that the locals have for their city, their freedom and their sovereignty.
