Filled with breathtaking scenery and rich with history and culture, Germany is one country you need to add to your travel bucket list.
Here are some of the top things to do and places to see in Germany!
Travel along the Romantic Road
Searching for German charm among a gorgeous landscape? Travel along one of Germany’s most scenic paths: the Romantic Road. Take in breathtaking German architecture and culture when you venture through the medieval towns of Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Dinkelsbühl, and Nördlingen.
Experience the famous cities of Wurzburg and Augsburg and feast on some famous local German cuisine and beer while on your stroll down the Romantic Road. Find yourself at one of Germany’s most fairy-tale like castles at the end of the road: Neuschwanstein Castle!
Become engrossed with Neuschwanstein Castle
Neuschwanstein Castle may look familiar to Disney lovers; it’s said that the castle was not only a real-life influence for the castle in Cinderella, but it also served as the inspiration for Sleeping Beauty’s castle that you can visit in Disneyland!
Take a guided tour through the castle’s interior to view 14 rooms, including a gaudy grotto and the king’s bedroom. Then take a walk along the Marienbrucke, a bridge that offers some of the most beautiful views of the Neuschwanstein castle.
Dive into some history at the Berlin Wall
The Berlin Wall ran through the heart of the city for nearly 30 years, dividing Berlin into East and West Berlin. When the Berlin Wall finally fell in November of 1989, East and West Berliners made history by reclaiming their city and reuniting as one.
See the history for yourself and add an expedition to the Berlin Wall to your checklist. See traces of the Wall and its remains and view the East Side Gallery, the longest surviving section of the Berlin Wall featuring artwork from around the world.
Get lost (not literally) in the Black Forest
Stretching from the spa-town of Baden Baden to the Swiss border, the Black Forest is a must-see for travelers. It’s the perfect opportunity to explore Germany through its lush forests, gorgeous valleys, small villages, and rolling hills.
Walk, bike, or drive your way to the many attractions found within the beautiful landscape. Spend some time in the many towns and villages, falls, and lakes woven around the forest. You can even trace the history of the cuckoo clock and find yourself a piece of some famous Black Forest Cake.
Discover the five museums on Museum Island—yes, five!
Fans of spending their hours in galleries must set aside a few days for Museum Island, one island home to five museums in Berlin. The five world-renowned museums include the Pergamon Museum, the Bode-Museum, the Neues Museum, the Alte Nationalgalerie, and the Altes Museum.
Spend the day getting lost in amazing art and history. View works from Ancient Egypt, Byzantium, and Berlin, including the bust of Nefertit, the Pergmaon Altar, and the Ishtar Gate.
Become one with nature at Berchtesgaden National Park
Journey to the German Alps to find the only National Park in the area: Berchtesgaden. Nature lovers will adore the incredible beauty and various landscapes found within the park.
Explore the undamaged area, where plants and wildlife remain untouched. Find deep forests, glaciers and torrents, and rugged cliffs amidst green pastures and rare orchids. See wildlife ranging from over 700 species of butterfly to red deer and golden eagles!
