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.

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.

Signal Iduna Park

Since its completion for the World Cup in 1974, the former Westphalia Stadium – now the Signal Iduna Park and home of Borussia Dortmund football club – has been one of the biggest and most beautiful football stadiums in Germany. Known for its incredible atmosphere, it is always jam-packed – if you want to get in, you have to get tickets well in advance. For those who don't manage it, there's always the German Football Route. Covering a distance of around 550km, it charts the fascinating history of German football over recent decades, combining the key elements of the beautiful game with tourist attractions and cultural highlights.

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.

Spree Forest: living life in the slow lane

The Spree Forest: central Europe’s most beautiful inland delta. Rivers and streams flow slowly between tranquil villages, where Sorbs still practise their age-old customs and boatmen guide their wooden punts along the narrow waterways at a leisurely pace.

Not just for sweet tooths: the Chocolate Museum

Visitors are taken on a journey spanning 3,000 years of chocolate history. The chocolate production area located at the tip of the museum is one of its highlights. Stretching across two levels, it shows visitors how bars of chocolate, truffles and hollow figures are made. 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!
