10 Best Places to Visit in Germany – Travel Video

Best known for its famous Oktoberfest and
World War II history, Germany is also home to some of Europa’s most beautiful scenery,
fairytale castles, important historic sites and lively party scenes. Located in the heart of Europe, Germany maintains
the continent’s most powerful economy. Here’s a look at the best places to visit
in Germany. Number 10. Leipzig. The largest city in the federal state of Saxony,
Leipzig is known for its vibrant arts and culture scene shaped by famous music composers
like Bach, Richard Wagner and Felix Mendelssohn. Tourists today can enjoy performances of Bach’s
music at the St. Thomas Church where Bach once served as choir leader and is now buried. In addition to historic sites like the Old
Town Hall, the city boasts several impressive structures such as the Napoleonic Monument
to the Battle of the Nations and the former high court of the Reich. One of Europe’s largest town squares is
situated at the central campus Germany’s second-oldest university. Number 9. Rugen Island. Located in the Baltic Sea, Rugen Island is
the largest island in Germany, connected to the mainland by a bridge and causeway. Charming villas, romantic seaside resorts
and beautiful beaches all draw tourists to Rugen Island, but the star attraction is the
Jasmund National Park, famous for its unique chalk cliffs rising 528 feet over the sea. Another notable feature of Rugen Island is
Cape Arkona, East Germany’s northernmost tip, where tourists can visit an old lighthouse,
remnants of a Slavic castle and a picturesque fishing village. Number 8. Romantic Rhine. Stretching between the cities of Bingen and
Bonn, Germany, the Middle Rhine flows through a dramatic geological formation called the
Rhine Gorge. This region features a spectacular landscape
dotted with some 40 medieval castles, picturesque villages and terraced vineyards. The region’s most famous natural attraction
is the Lorelei, the deepest and most narrow section of the Rhine Gorge, which features
a large, treacherous rock that caused several boating accidents prior to the 19th century. The best way to experience the Romantic Rhine
is by a riverboat cruise. Number 7. Cologne. Situated on the Rhine River in the German
federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia, Cologne is one of the most popular places to visit
in Germany. The city offers a vibrant array of attractions,
buzzing nightlife and a stellar arts and culture scene. Cologne also packs impressive landmarks such
as the city’s informal symbol, the Cologne Cathedral, a stunning Gothic church. Moreover, the Twelve Romanesque Churches are
magnificent examples of medieval architecture. Number 6. Dresden. Before it was severely damaged from World
War II bombings, Dresden was known as the Jewel Box because of its lavish collection
of stunning art and architecture. After many years, the city has restored much
of its former glory. The capital of the federal state of Saxony,
Dresden offers a number of historic sites like the stunning Frauenkirche cathedral. The city also boasts many cultural institutions
of which the Semper Opera is most widely esteemed. Number 5. Lubeck. As one of the largest Baltic seaports in Germany,
Lübeck is located in the country’s northern-most state, Schleswig-Holstein. Founded in 1143, Lübeck served for several
centuries as the capital seat of the Hanseatic League. Although it was the first German city to be
bombed and damaged during World War II, Lübeck still retains much of its medieval architecture,
making it a popular tourist destination. A walk through the narrow streets of the Altstadt
offers views of historic sites like the stunning cathedral, the 12th century Town Hall and
the old city gates of which the Holstentor is the most famous. Number 4. Heidelberg. With historic treasures like the medieval
Old Bridge, the Heidelberg Castle, the Church of the Holy Spirit and the Knight St. George
House, it is no wonder that Heidelberg is a popular tourist attraction. The city center’s main street is packed
with pubs, restaurants, museums, art galleries, shops and markets selling the likes of beer
steins, cuckoo clocks and German sausages. Home to Germany’s oldest university, Heidelberg’s
long academic history can be retraced along the Philosopher’s Walk, a scenic footpath
often walked by many earlier philosophers and professors. Number 3. Neuschwanstein. The most photographed building in Germany,
Neuschwanstein Castle, is also one of Europe’s most popular tourist destinations. Nestled among the breathtaking beauty of the
Bavarian Alps near the town of Fussen, this fairy-tale castle served as the inspiration
behind Walt Disney’s Sleeping Beauty Castle. Constructed in the late 1800s, Neuschwanstein
Castle was never built for defense purposes as most castles. Instead, this castle was created as a fanciful
retreat King Ludwig II of Bavaria who had a reputation for abiding in daydreams instead
of reality. Number 2. Munich. Best known as the origin of the world famous
Oktoberfest, Munich is one of the best places to visit in Germany with a great culture scene. Munich is home to several sophisticated opera
houses and theaters like the National Theatre. The city center is an attractive blend of
classic and modern architecture, teeming in historic churches, medieval walls and royal
palaces as well as bustling shopping centers and nightlife venues. Munich’s Oktoberfest began in 1810 with
a royal wedding celebration. Today, this famous festival draws millions
of visitors every year to take part in the revelry that involves several gigantic beer
tents, delicious Bavarian food and millions of gallons of beer. Number 1. Berlin. The capital city of Germany, Berlin is widely
associated with its World War II history and former division of East and West Germany by
the Berlin Wall during the Cold War. Since the fall of the historic wall in 1989,
Berlin today is now a vast, unified city diverse in ethnic groups and abundant in sightseeing
attractions, culture and nightlife. Many tourists are drawn to Berlin’s famous
historic structures, which include the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag. Although most of the Berlin Wall was demolished,
there are some portions still standing near Checkpoint Charlie and the Reichstag.

  1. The spire of the Gnthic church overwhelming our Japanese and the figures are not in our Japan .
    I feel deep emotions and surprises in numerous wonderful monuments.
    I just admire and remember respect for your underlying strength that has recovered like a phoenix from that terrible warfare .
    You are able to conquer the world with culture , technology ,religion and economic power without using strength .
    I first learned about the amazingness and splendor of Germany with this video .
    There will be many people in the world who do not know the wonderful sight of true Germany .

    Greetings from effulgent Tokyo in profound and cool Japan 😀

  2. I'm from Germany. It's actually sad that I'v seen so little of my own country.

  3. Not bad, but the video needs to be better synced to the narration. What one sees and hears about rarely matches. The people who shot the video and the ones who wrote the script apparently are not the same, and didn't communicate with one another.

  4. Ich habe nie in Deutschland gelebt, aber ich konnte die Sprache sprechen, gelernt von meiner Tante! Deutschland ist der Ort, an den auch jeder geht

  5. Frankfurt, Hamburg, Warnemünde, Hannover, Bremen, Speyer, Erfurt, Rothenburg, Tangermünde, Nürnberg, Augsburg, Trier, Münster….

  6. I miss the old country
    I was in GERMANY back in January 1969. Unable to return so I miss it today.

  7. i known Germany the land fabulous, principally Cologne, munchen, Stuttgart and frankfurt the bests for me!!!

  8. Лайк за флаг ДНР в Берлине в конце видео ))

  9. Music is too loud. You should have slowed down the music a bit and loud up your voice a bit.

  10. Number 3 is the best I ever was able to imagine. I checked your video mostly, to see, which place you gave to Füssen. It's actually should be the first, more beauty in my opinion, than Berlin. (?!)

  11. Germany has so many best places to visit you cannot limit it to 10, but they have to do that to keep the video at a watchable level. We've been in Germany almost 8 years now and enjoy the small towns as much as the big cities. Love the streetside cafes and old towns and castles throughout Germany.

  12. 感觉旅行还是还是去意大利和法国比较好😂德国比较适合工业制造而不是旅游

  13. I walk my dog next to the rhine every day, its less than 2 minute walk from where i live. Moved here from the UK to be with somebody and love it and love Germany in general. Been here several months or so now. Only thing left to do now is learn the Impossible language! lol. es ist nicht einfach! (Think that was right?)

  14. Some day people will be going on trips to look at our work in earth as we go to see their work so please all try to give nice picture of us

  15. 🌏💕💕💕Germany People very good Born City, I like Beethoven and Nantiya Thai massage very good ( her is kindness ✌💕👍 😍 )

  21. Germans have so much Beauty in their country it's amazing,our Tatars should visit these cities these castles,

  22. Desturbed by a national ruler – wonder why all hands are for a nation

  23. 0.46 min. : Usual media – shit; Richard Wagner did not "shape anything" in Leipzig, he was just born and raised there, his activities and successes took place in Riga, Switzerland, Bayreuth and whereever; if the producer had really been into earnest inquiry, he might have added the Robert Schumann Family whose Apartment is still to be visitied today or the dwelling place of Edvard Grieg, who wrote his Peer Gynt – Suite in Leipzig.But women have a natural Born tendency for superfluous wishy-washy-talk, don`t they ?

  24. Sadly that all these 10 places are no more safe nowadays due to "wrong immigration"… Btw, there are still lots of nice places to visit here in Germany. The uploaded video is just showing the big cities and forgot all about the stunning view of the countryside area of this beautiful German country.

  25. "Germany is most known for Oktoberfest and WW2" What a sad, simplistic and stereotypical view. Germany is so much more than that. You'd think a travel guide would know better.

  26. Instead of Cologne there should've been Hamburg. Cologne really isn't that special. Seen both and Hamburg ist way better (no I'm not from Hamburg).

  27. I am missing Rothenburg ob der Tauber. One of the most beautiful places here in Germany ….

  28. Lindau am Bodensee, Konstanz, Potsdam, Berchdesgaden, die Mecklenburgische Seenplatte.👍👍👍👍💖💖💖💟💟💟💟😍

  29. 🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪

  30. Nice country nice people nice govt very very successful congratulations to all friends from Germany

  31. Neuschwanstein is overrated. Hohenzollern is more beautifull. And it is a real castle.

  32. Wow, very beautiful place, I'd love to visit this great country, my grandparents' land.
    Greetings from Perú

  33. The heart of the world is Switzerland, Austria, France and Germany, all 3 together.

  34. Traveller, if you come to Germany please SKIP Berlin!!!
    Completely overrated, noisy, annoying, arrogant.

    Go to Hamburg instead!

  35. Yeah, and ogres and elves will fuck you, while you visit all the…bullshit
    Im german. just a joke

  36. Germany has more Castles than MC Donalds:
    1500 MC Donalds in Germany
    25000 Castles in Germany 😉
    37800 MC Donalds worldwide
    The Knights in Germany were really not lazy 😉

  37. i believed no.1 spot goes to KÖNIG SEE in bayern .. berlin is not so interesting as in places in Bavaria.. if you want to see paradise ..Sank Bartolome in könig see
    is the the real definition..

  38. Das Schweriner Schloss gehört zu den schönsten in Deutschland. Schwerin Castle is one of the most beautiful in Germany. El castillo de Schwerin es uno de los más bellos de Alemania.
