40 UNESCO sites in Germany

Germany offers a huge variety of destinations, and many of them have earned a well-deserved place on UNESCO´s list of World Heritage Sites. No less than 40 UNESCO World Heritage Sites are sprinkled throughout Germany´s 16 states, including magnificent Cologne Cathedral, Museum Island in Berlin, the country´s capital, and the beautiful natural surroundings and beech forests near Waren (Muritz).

Experience the German”gemytlichheit” (cosiness) in its pubs and restaurants where you´ll find a great atmosphere and hearty local dishes, or why not explore the lively German markets that are held all year round, or join in a harvest celebration, and don´t forget the world-famous German Christmas markets held in almost every major city, and many of the smaller ones, too. Germany is the place for both wine connoisseurs and beer-lovers. It is, after all, the home of the world-famous ”Oktoberfest” in Munich. Don´t miss the renowned Durkheim Wurstmarkt – the world´s largest wine festival – that over half a million visitors flock to annually.

Germany´s culinary traditions

Germany takes pride in its culinary traditions and it´s not hard to find something to please almost any taste. Quell those hunger pangs effectively with a Thüringen Rostbratwurst (frankfurter) made from a 600-year-old recipe, or get up early and sample the seafood wares on offer at the popular Fischmarkt (Fish Market) at the port of Hamburg. Quench your thirst with a large, foamy German beer or try one of the local wines made using tasty Riesling grapes.
