Top Ten Destinations in Germany
Last night Germany was crowned the official winner of the World Cup 2014, after beating Argentina 1 – 0 with a fantastic goal in extra time (with only minutes to spare). To celebrate Germany’s status as world leaders in football, we decided to honour this fantastic country by listing our top 10 German breaks.
The top 10 include;
• Aachen – a beautiful example of Western Germany, and the perfect destination for wondering travellers. Aachen’s location right next to Belgium and the Netherlands makes it the perfect stop on a European tour.
• Berlin – a truly exciting capital city, the metropolitan and the past are perfectly balanced in Berlin to create the perfect city break for history and culture lovers.
• Cologne – if you’re into architecture, Cologne is not to be missed. The world famous Cathedral is absolutely stunning, and is still home to Germany’s Catholic Bishop – plus the many museums will make for a great trip.
• Dusseldorf – if you’re looking for a taste of luxury then Dusseldorf is the place for you. Beautiful hotels, designer shops and amazing art work combine to create a culture lover’s paradise.
• Frankfurt – if you’re a fan of high skylines and a touch of business class, then Frankfurt should be on your list.
• Hamburg – Germany’s second largest city and one of Europe’s biggest harbours – Hamburg definitely has a lot to offer. Wonder around the fish markets, the merchants district and eat on the river for a real feel of the ‘Venice of the North’.
• Heidelberg – Germany is famous for its fairy tale castles and Heidelberg offers a fantastic example. Stroll past renaissance era buildings and medieval bridges for a trip back in time.
• Kiel – if you’re looking for a festival trip with a difference, then Kiel should be on your list. The Kieler Woche or Kiel Regatta is an annual sailing festival in Germany which has now become an international food and music event too.
• Munich – anyone looking for Bavarian charm, great beer and authentic food will love Munich – plan your visit around Oktoberfest for a real treat.
• Nuremberg – perfect for history lovers, Nuremberg was heavily attacked during World War Two, but much of the remaining city is almost medieval looking. Wander around the surviving streets and museums for a compelling look at Germany through the ages.
