Periods and styles – on a journey back through the centuries

Architectural monuments that bear witness to history and times of change are among Germany's finest attractions. Each one holds an appeal which is impossible to resist. But who would want to resist anyway?

Admire, appreciate and enjoy. Visiting Germany's palaces, castles, cathedrals, parks and historical towns and cities gives you an insight into the customs and cultures of past times.

Renaissance splendour, baroque opulence, the flamboyance of rococo and the strictly ordered elegance of neo-classicism. Each architectural style you encounter has a character and charm all of its own.

In which period would you like to have lived? To find out – and to go on a fascinating journey back in time – visit some of our beautifully preserved and lovingly maintained monuments, which represent all periods and styles.
