UNESCO World Heritage – the greatest legacies of mankind and Mother Nature

Only the most outstanding testimonies to the history of mankind and nature are granted the World Heritage title by UNESCO. And many of them are in Germany.

Many of Germany's most impressive architectural monuments, historical towns, significant industrial sites and distinctive natural landscapes – 38 in total – have been deemed to be of international historical importance by UNESCO. This is a legacy that is meant for you as well: because every visit to a UNESCO World Heritage site is a journey back in time to a shared cultural history.

Succumb to the magic of these historical locations and set out to discover the wealth that mankind has inherited. In Germany, you'll strike gold 38 times.
