Wilkommen in Deutschland!
I am sure that you already think about summer and the most expected holiday of the year. If you don’t have any plans yet, you can take into consideration Germany, as there are so many beautiful places to visit…The atmosphere is great, weather is good, people are friendly, food is great…and history is everywhere.
Because I don’t live in Germany for so long, I haven’t been able to visit all the main attractions, but I started to travel and I am impressed by the simple historical beauty of many cities and the general peace of mind you get after a day spend in these places.
Of course I firstly recommend Munich, as I live here and I believe that Bavaria is one of the most beautiful and warm places in Germany. You will not get bored here! History, fresh air, green places, City centre, museums, Beer gardens, shops… you can not wish for more! You need at least 4-5 days to visit the most important attractions, including a one day visit to Linderhof Castle, Oberammergau (one of the most typical bavarian small city) and Neuschwanstein Castle. Such breathtaking places!
Frankfurt is also worth seeing it, as it’s so different from Munich…New city, sky scrapers, new and modern buildings, a lot of young people and the feeling that everywhere you look it is something interesting to explore. I didn’t have a lot of time to visit it, but I will sure come back
In order to give you more professional and detailed information about the most beautiful places in Germany, I got inspired by www.touropia.com. For sure I agree with the ones I already seen and I am looking forward to visit the rest.
Here is the top they made with 10 best places to Visit in Germany.
