Best Places to Visit

Natural Landmarks and Lakes

Natural Landmarks and Lakes

Schwarzwald

Schwarzwald

Schwarzwald is one of Europe's most beautiful regions, famous for its various natural landscapes. It gained most of its popularity thanks to the "Black Forest", a picturesque place where you can feel like a character from the famous fairy tales written by the Grimm Brothers or Gauff. Mysterious wildwood, pastoral sunny hillsides, colorful farmers' homes, magnificent lakes, glorious mountains and exhilarating fresh air – this is all about Schwarzwald.

The Partnach Gorge (Partnachklamm)

The Partnach Gorge (Partnachklamm)

The Partnach Gorge (Partnachklamm) situated in the suburbs of the small resort town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, is literally one of Bavaria's most interesting and unusual places, a must-visit tourist destination. It is strange that many tourists who visit Garmisch to climb the highest mountain in Germany – Zugspitze, to walk around Eibsee Lake or simply go skiing, tend to miss such a beautiful place hidden in the mountains.

The Externsteine

The Externsteine

The Externsteine, translated as "the Egge Stones" or, arguably, "the Star Stones", is a series of columnlike rock formations protruding from the surrounding Teutoburg Forest.

Schreck Lake

Schreck Lake

Despite its name, Schreck Lake has no connection with the character of the famous cartoon – apart from the color of the surrounding mountain peaks. It is located in the Bavarian Alps and remains untouched by civilization. Even camping beside the lake is prohibited. However, some tourists still take risks – even though one can reach the lake on foot only. There is no road or cable railway.

Sights

Neuschwanstein Castle (Schloss Neuschwanstein)

Neuschwanstein Castle (Schloss Neuschwanstein)

The most fabulous place in Germany is situated in the Bavarian town of Schwangau at the Germany-Austria border. The castle is included into the UNESCO World Heritage List. Built on the ruins of a 14th century castle, Neuschwanstein became the first large-scale project of the young king.

The Goseck Circle in Saxony-Anhalt (Sachsen-Anhalt)

The Goseck Circle in Saxony-Anhalt (Sachsen-Anhalt)

The Goseck Circle, one of the most ancient rondels, was found near the town of Goseck and immediately christened as the "German Stonehenge". Supposedly, the Goseck Circle served as a fortified citadel or a shrine observatory. This "observatory" could be used to compile the lunar calendar.

The Devil's Bridge (Rakotzbrücke)

The Devil's Bridge (Rakotzbrücke)

The Devil's Bridge (Rakotzbrücke) is an iconic arched bridge located in the picturesque Kromlau Park 120km northeast of Dresden and 165km southeast of Berlin. This beautiful arched bridge creates a perfect circle in the reflection in still waters. It attracts numerous visitors (partly due to its recent popularity on Instagram) and is easily accessible to tourists in Dresden and Berlin.

The Old Town and Castle Heidelberg

The Old Town and Castle Heidelberg

The Old Town and Castle Heidelberg (Heidelberger Schloss) is situated on the slope of the green Königsstuhl Mountain.

Frankfurt Zoo

Advice from the Expert

William Davis

The “Pfand” System in Germany

The Pfand System implies that when purchasing water, juice, soda and anything else sold in glass or plastic bottles, buyers pay the mortgage value of the bottle and can return it. Not all shops accept all kinds of empty containers so try to collect and return bottles with a Pfand bar code. These will bring you a bit of cash.

William Davis

Check the Address of the Airport

When buying a cheap (low-cost) ticket, make sure that the airport is not very far from the city so you won’t have to pay 30 euros for a one-way ride. In this case, when traveling in a group, it is more cost-efficient to rent a car at the airport (for example, at Sixt, the German car rental service). You will be able to use the car the whole day for the same price.

William Davis

Always Pay Public Transport Fares

Even if there is no ticket inspector in sight, it is best not to push your luck. The subsequent fine will be totally not worth the couple of euros you might hope to save.

William Davis

Take Care of Your Dog

If you are traveling with your dog, you should know that in Germany, every owner should have a bag when walking a dog. You should collect your pet’s feces into the bag. If you are noticed without this bag, you are liable to a fine from 35 to 250 euros.

William Davis

Feeding Pigeons

Is Prohibited In Germany, it is prohibited to feed wild pigeons in the streets. For instance, in Cologne, this may lead to a fine of up to 1,000 euros (₴32,562). In Hamburg, this sum may reach 5,000 euros.

Airports in the Country

Frankfurt am Main Airport

Frankfurt am Main Airport

Frankfurt Airport confidently holds the top spot in our rating. Moreover, this is one of the busiest airports in the world serving over 65 mil. passengers annually. Just imagine: here, planes take off and land every minute! Oddly enough, such a huge airport consists of only two terminals (plus a small terminal for VIP passengers). People move between the terminals by a free monorail or a special shuttle.

Munich Franz Josef Strauss Airport

Munich Franz Josef Strauss Airport

Munich International Airport is the second busiest airport after Frankfurt. It was named after a prominent Bavarian politician and is located about 30km from the city. The Munich airport terminal is considered one of the most convenient in the world. It repeatedly proved its title with various awards.

Düsseldorf Airport

Düsseldorf Airport

The complex consists of three terminals connected with a single hall, so it may be considered one huge building. Monorail trains course in between the terminals, but one can also go on foot. In comparison with its "elder brothers", this airport receives less people (in 2019, about 26 mil. passengers went through it) but the sheer number is still impressive.

Hamburg Helmut Schmidt Airport

Hamburg Helmut Schmidt Airport

Hamburg Airport is considered the oldest of the city's regular airports. Passengers get registered in the two terminals connected by the Airport Plaza Hall comprising shops, restaurants and other entertainment facilities. You can reach Hamburg Airport by bus. There are several city routes serving the airport, and some of them include night bus service.

The Country's 5 Jewels

William Davis

William Davis

Lake Königssee

Lake Königssee

Lake Königssee ("the King's Lake"), one of the most beautiful landmarks of Germany, is situated in the southeast of Bavaria and belongs to the Schönau am Königssee municipality. Most of the lake lies within the territory of the Berchtesgaden National Park. The emerald-green lake with crystal clear water is snug surrounded by grand mountains and gorgeous Alpine landscapes.

The Hohenschwangau Village

The Hohenschwangau Village

The Hohenschwangau Village is an iconic landmark of Germany. Here, one of the country's most famous and popular castles, the similarly-named Hohenschwangau, is situated. The village itself is surrounded by four lakes and belongs to the Ammergebirge Nature Reserve. Nature in this place is unbelievably beautiful.

The Bavarian Alps

The Bavarian Alps

The charming beauty of the mountain landscapes, numerous lakes, rocky valleys – all these describe the Bavarian Alps that win over the tourists' hearts from the very first moment. At the foot of the mountains one can find small, but cozy and lively German towns and villages. Guests here are welcomed with joy and offered sightseeing tours. The locals are also eager to point out the beauty and uniqueness of the surrounding nature to tourists.

Mainau Island

Mainau Island

Mainau is a fabulous island in Germany popular not only with tourists but also with the locals. The climate here is subtropical and perfect for growing all types of flowers (this, by the way, is what gave the island its unofficial name: "the Flower Island"). The ground is strewn with flowers. There are also several themed areas dedicated to exotic flowers or trees.

Schwarzwald

Schwarzwald

Schwarzwald (translated as "the Black Forest") has been known as a very famous and beautiful place in Germany for many centuries. This terrain was named "the Black Forest" thanks to high trees with wide branches. In Schwarzwald, one can feel like an adventurer; fiction here becomes reality: narrow, intertwined paths lead into the unknown, and mysterious sounds make imagination run wild.

Cuisine

"Aqua" – Wolfsburg

This restaurant is located near Autostadt, a local tourist spot. "Aqua" is worth visiting: it offers delicious-looking fish, amuse-bouche and pork. You will enjoy a good Berliner doughnut, praline and ice cream. In this place, one should also sample nice wine, sherry, or champagne. The restaurant received a Michelin star and is included into the top-100 best restaurants in the world.

Roast Beef with Onion (Zwiebelrostbraten)

Roast Beef with Onion (Zwiebelrostbraten)

In Germany, roast beef with onion is served for Sunday lunch. According to the fundamental recipe, the roast beef is cut on the sides, salted, peppered, sometimes rubbed with mustard or garlic and briefly fried in butter, melted butter, or melted fat. The fried meat is taken off the frying pan and put into the oven until done. The same frying pan is used to cook onions sometimes sprinkled with paprika. The onions are also taken out. The oil is mixed with some flour, meat juice, stock or wine to make thick sauce. Some recipes include leaving onions in the sauce to make them more tender. Roast beef with onion and sauce is usually served with fried potatoes or spaetzle.

Lavanderia Vecchia

Lavanderia Vecchia

Old washing machines, tight ropes with towels hanging from them, and amidst it all – the very kitchen as well as tables and chairs. In the past, this room was indeed a huge laundry, but six years ago, it turned into a trattoria. This is an unusual and conceptual restaurant.

Berliners

Berliners

This is a medium-sized doughnut made of sweet yeast dough, filled with confiture (as a rule, strawberry or plum) or, less often, cream and fried in oil. It is a popular dessert in Germany and Austria. Amazing taste!
