Unhindered holiday enjoyment for every taste

Numerous providers have developed practical initiatives to open up Destination Germany for everyone. From stepless viewing platforms to tactile hiking trails, from guided tours in sign language to allergy-friendly hotels – discover Germany unhindered and barrier-free!

Athletically ambitious or adventure-hungry travellers can find all manner of thrills and challenges throughout Germany while being certain of getting the support they need. Everyone who takes part, from elite athletes to pleasure cyclists, is guaranteed a great time. Being there is everything.

Germany's leisure parks and interactive exhibitions combine fun with action, the fascinating with the curious, and the down-to-earth with the exotic. Some are traditional, others futuristic – all are designed with a love of detail and special attention to visitors' individual needs.

With 41 UNESCO World Heritage sites, architectural masterpieces from the Middle Ages to the Bauhaus, over 6,000 museums, hundreds of theatres and world famous orchestras and an agile, contemporary creative scene, Germany truly shines as a cultural destination of distinction. Our endeavour to make these treasures accessible to everyone is every bit as multi-layered as the tourist amenities themselves.

Tactile and barefoot pathways that let you feel coastal mudflats and lush mountain pastures; audio guides that let you hear the animal sounds in the forest; plain-language commentaries that make nature understandable to everyone – whether with a pushchair or a wheelchair, numerous footpaths throughout the German landscape offer a truly unhindered experience.

Defiant medieval fortresses, baroque castles with sweeping gardens, strictly classical ensembles or romantic quotations from various periods; Germany's cultural legacy is defined by the symbiosis of nature, architecture and countryside – our duty is to open up this legacy to as many travellers as possible.

More than three quarters of all visitors enjoy exploring Germany's towns and cities – those medieval centres full of crouching half-timbered buildings towered over by Romanesque and Gothic cathedrals, not to mention all the majestic baroque residences and pub-and-club districts that never sleep. Multicultural, suitable for all ages and extensively barrier-free.

Let yourself be carried and pampered on majestic, flowing rivers through the German countryside, or explore lake-based water sports at your own pace – the opportunities for a waterside vacation are diverse and accessible to everyone.
