Neuschwanstein Castle Hohenschwangau
Neuschwanstein Castle is internationally one of the most famous sights in Germany and one of the most popular sights in Bavaria.
Every year over 1.5 million tourists from all over the world come to see the fairytale castle.
Its location in the foothills of the Alps also makes it a popular travel destination in Germany.
According to Ludwig II’s plans, there should be 200 rooms in Neuschwanstein. Only 15 were completed in the end.
It was built in 1869 on behalf of the Bavarian King Ludwig II. For him, Neuschwanstein represented the perfect ideal of a medieval knight’s castle.
These include a bedroom in neo-Gothic style, a living room with original furniture and the richly decorated throne room.
Neuschwanstein Castle is suitable for a trip with the family and vacation as a couple. Up to 6000 people visit the castle every day.
You should book your ticket online in advance, as the number of visitors is limited.

Tourist in front of the Brandenburg Gate
The Brandenburg Gate is the top attraction in Berlin.
Hardly any postcard in the capital can do without a copy of the photogenic gate.
The Brandenburg Gate was built from 1789 to 1793 as the end of the boulevard of Dorotheenstadt.
The quadriga on the roof of the Brandenburg Gate was kidnapped by Napoleon as booty to Paris in 1806. In 1814 she returned to Berlin.
Today the classicist building also attracts so many visitors because it is inextricably linked with German history.
During the division of Berlin, it stood right on the border between East and West Berlin.
A few decades ago, traversing it seemed like a dream that could never be fulfilled.
Nordic island paradise
Germany: Sylt Strand
Sylt makes you psychotic – this is how the island advertises itself. And the name says it all: Not only German celebrities like to stay on the North Sea island again and again. Tourists like you and me will also find dreamy holiday residences on Sylt between the dunes and the sea.
Hanseatic City of Lübeck
UNESCO world heritage
North German serenity dominates Lübeck, celebrated between monumental buildings such as the Holstentor and historical corridors. When visiting the Hanseatic city, an exploration of the hidden alleys that hide beautiful backyards, as well as a boat tour on the Trave, are not to be missed.

In addition to countless excellent hiking tours, a particular highlight is a ride on the famous Harz narrow-gauge railway.
Zugspitze and Partnach Gorge
Alpine highlights from Garmisch-Partenkirchen
Zugspitze – Garmisch Partenkirchen
Some of Germany’s most incredible natural wonders can be found around the popular holiday and winter sports resort Garmisch-Partenkirchen. One of them is the overwhelming Partnach Gorge. If you are on holiday in the area, you shouldn’t miss the Zugspitze. Germany’s highest mountain is a highlight in itself.
Old Town Hall – Bamberg
The picturesque Bamberg stretches over seven hills and the confluence of the Regnitz and Main rivers. The city with its magnificent buildings and pretty half-timbered houses is the epitome of Germany for many holidaymakers from abroad. The town hall on the bridge is particularly worth seeing.
