Heading to Germany? Here’s What You Need to See

June 29 2017

A visit to Germany is incomplete without a visit to these five famous attractions

Germany is the fifth largest country in Europe and the largest economy in the European Union. It is one of the world’s largest producer of cars and is also a cultural powerhouse with monuments, castles, medieval towns and UNESCO heritage sites. It is a nation of people who love their wine, as much as they love technology and education. Vibrant nightlife, amazing scenery and the world famous Oktoberfest beer festival are just some of the reasons why a visit to Germany is a must. Below are some of the charming and absolutely beautiful attractions that will blow your mind.

Neuschwanstein Castle

Neuschwanstein Castle

Built by the orders of King Ludwig II, and completed in 1886, this medieval-style castle has a fairy tale aura about it. Some say that this castle was the inspiration behind Disney’s iconic ‘Sleeping Beauty Castle’. Situated high up in the hills above the village of Hohenschwangau in Southwest Bavaria, this cloud-capped castle is a masterpiece of architecture and was built by the shy king so that he could withdraw from public life. The irony today is that during peak days 6,000 tourists roam through the rooms, which were once meant just for him.

Romantic Road

Romantic Road

Yes, that’s the name. This 400-km stretch of asphalt running from Wurzburg to Fussen encompasses within its fold some breathtaking vistas, idyllic villages and towns with historical significance. If you want to discover Germany through a road trip, this is the way to do it. Founded in 1950 to boost German tourism, 67 years on it is diligently fulfilling its duty with 2 million visitors flocking to it every year.

Brandenburg Gate

Brandenburg Gate

This neo classical monument is one of the best-known landmarks in Germany. Situated in Berlin, the Brandenburg Gate has an important place in history. This 200-year-old piece of architecture has witnessed many historical events and stands as a testament to the tumultuous history of Germany. It symbolized the division of Germany during the Cold War, but now stands as a symbol of peace and unity.

Berlin Wall

Berlin Wall

This is a tourist magnet with a dark history attached to it. Built in 1961, the Berlin Wall divided the city in two for nearly three decades. Its demolition was completed in 1992, and now the remnants of the wall have been turned into a colourful work of art from artists around the world. A visit to the East Side Gallery in Friedrichshain will reveal a façade very different to what it once was.

Cologne Cathedral

Cologne Cathedral

The Cologne Cathedral, located in the German city of Cologne is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a masterpiece of Gothic architecture. Construction commenced in 1248, but was completed much later in 1880. It is still the third tallest church in the world and is visited by more than six million people annually.
