The most popular sights for 2016!

Situated in the heart of Europe, Germany has plenty of fantastic tourist attractions and unique sights to offer. Visitors from all over the world travel to Germany to see architectural treasures and fascinating places of natural beauty. The German National Tourist Board (GNTB) is interested in gathering the most popular attractions and has its international visitors name their German favorites. More than 40.000 travelers to Germany from 66 countries named their personal favorite.

Marienplatz square in Munich

The square is dominated by the neo-Gothic New Town Hall with its imposing facade and the sound of the delightful carillon in the town hall tower. Close by are some of Munich's most exclusive shopping streets, markets and beer gardens, as well as the trio of famous city gates – Isartor, Sendlinger Tor and Karlstor.

Aachen Cathedral

Aachen Cathedral was the very first site to be granted UNESCO World Heritage status in Germany, and with good reason: built in around 790 to 800, the cathedral is of world importance in terms of the history of art and architecture, and is one of the great examples of church architecture. The final resting place of Charlemagne, it was also where German emperors were crowned for 600 years.

Eifel National Park

U nacionalnom parku Ajfel, posetioce mame veličanstvene bukove šume, kvrgave hrastove šume i tajnoviti klanci, u kojima žubore potoci. Brojnost životinjskih i biljnih vrsta učiniće da na zadivljujući način doživite prirodu, koja je jedinstvena na zapadu Nemačke.

Munich Octoberfest

Munich is Germany's beer capital – and the Oktoberfest is a byword for beer all over the world. When the first Oktoberfest was held back in 1810 to celebrate a royal wedding, nobody could have dreamt it would go on to become such a famous event. Since that time, the world's biggest beer festival has been held every year in September/October on the Theresienwiese grounds, bringing smiles to people's faces in classic Bavarian style with oompah bands, beer fresh from the barrel and plenty of good cheer. Anyone interested in the history of the festival can find out more on a guided tour of the famous Wies'n site, available since 1995 in several languages.

Hamburg port and HafenCity

Otkriti daleki svet i vratiti se u Hamburg: to je svakako najlepši program putovanja koji se može zamisliti. Kapija sveta, lepota na moru, primorska prestonica severa - čak i suzdržani stanovnici ovog starog trgovačkog grada teško uspevaju da sakriju ponos na svoj grad, njegovu atmosferu i kosmopolitski šarm kojim on zrači.


A whole host of international stars, including Michael Jackson, have visited Phantasialand, the multi-award-winning, family-friendly theme park in Brühl, some 20km from Cologne. It also opens for a winter season that features a programme of unmissable shows.

Old quarter of Düsseldorf

A successful mix of Rhenish charm and international flair, the heart of Düsseldorf has been a meeting place for young and old alike for generations. However, the old quarter has much more to offer than the 'world's longest bar'. Packed into this compact area are a variety of architectural gems from the past and present, as well as cultural attractions, shops, historical monuments, beautiful squares and, of course, the Rhine riverside promenade: a fantastic setting for all types of festivities, from the Japan Festival, book fair and town fair to Halloween and the Jazz Rally.

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.

Wartburg Castle in Eisenach (UNESCO World Heritage)

Large, imposing and steeped in history: high above the town of Eisenach sits Wartburg Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1999. One of the best-preserved medieval German fortresses and almost 1,000 years old, it is possibly Germany's most famous castle, and certainly one of its most important.

Würzburg Residenz Palace (UNESCO World Heritage)

Würzburg Residenz Palace is generally considered the purest and most remarkable of all baroque palaces in Germany. Built between 1720 and 1744 and enhanced by the magnificent gardens between 1765 and 1780, it exemplifies a glittering era and is one of the most spectacular royal palaces in Europe.
