Top Places To Visit & Tourist Attractions In Germany
Known for its incredible art scene, buzzing nightlife and rich history, Germany’s capital Berlin is a must-see when visiting the country. For WWII buffs, there are plenty of interesting things to explore; from the symbol of East/West division, the Brandenburg Gate, to the important Allied border crossing, Checkpoint Charlie. On our guided holidays to Berlin, we’ll visit both of these monuments with an expert, local guide to give us the history behind the landmarks. We’ll also enjoy plenty of free time in Berlin to discover at our own pace, whether it’s a trip to the famous outdoor East Side Gallery or simply enjoying the mid-afternoon ritual of coffee and cake at one of the city’s cafes
Spanning the River Rhine and boasting a medieval centre with beautiful examples of High Gothic Architecture, Cologne feels like it could be straight out of a fairy tale. The city was founded nearly 2,000 years ago by Germanic tribes and today is home to beautiful landmarks like the Cologne Cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. On our trips to Cologne we’ll explore the Catherdral along with the bustling Roncalliplatz, the historic Alter Markt Square, and Cologne City Hall, all with the help of a local, expert guide.
Passau is a quaint German city lying on the Austrian-German border. The city’s beautiful old town was created by Italian baroque masters in the 17th century and includes soaring towers, picturesque places, enchanting promenades and romantic lanes. Take in highlights such as St. Stephen’s Cathedral, which houses the world’s largest cathedral organ, the majestic fortress of Veste Oberhaus and the Pilgrimage Church of "Mariahilf". On our River Cruises including Passau, we’ll have the opportunity to explore all of these landmarks on a city tour with a local, expert guide.
Munich is Germany’s 3rd largest city and the capital of the Bavarian region. Once its own independent Kingdom, Bavaria has a unique culture that can be felt distinctly when visiting Munich. On our trips to Munich, we’ll visit the most iconic sites in the city including the King's Square, the Maximilianeum, the National Opera House, the Royal Palace, Marienplatz Square and the medieval city gates. We’ll also stop at the traditional Viktualienmarkt, an open air food market with colourful outdoor stalls that takes place daily in the square in the centre of Munich.
Named for the density of its evergreen trees, the Black Forest is more beautifully picturesque than its name suggest. On our trips to Germany, we’ll take a scenic drive along the Black Forest Ridgeway, offering spectacular views of the Black Forest and its unparalleled richness of natural scenery. We’ll also stop in the “Jewel of the Black Forest”, Lake Mummelsee, which is one of the forest’s few cirque lakes remaining from the ice age. Here, we’ll also have some free time to explore or enjoy a piece of the region’s famous Black Forest cake.
