From castle ruins majestically overlooking the Rhine to a countryside full of medieval villages and half-timbered houses, Germany has a lot more to offer than just beer and lederhosen. Bach, Beethoven and Wagner are just some of the musical icons who called Germany home.

Edgy modern centers of art and culture, gothic cathedrals and charming baroque architecture, medieval villages and quaint mountain resorts. The varied cities and regions of Germany have something to appeal to everyone.

  • Berlin

    Berlin

    The capital of Germany, once divided into East and West by the infamous Berlin Wall, and today a world city of culture, politics, media, and science. The past is ever present in remnants of the Wall, Checkpoint Charlie and the Brandenburg Gate but this is a city looking toward the future. Constantly changing, Berlin embodies and young a free-wheeling spirit. Home to some of the world's greatest cultural institutions and museums, this is a wonderfully vibrant and creative city.

    Leipzig

    Leipzig

    A major cultural and trade center, Leipzig has a rich history in classical music. Wagner was born here, Mendelssohn established a conservatory here in 1843 and Johann Sebastian Bach worked as Kapellmeister at the Thomaskirche (St Thomas Church) from 1723 until his death in 1750. His remains are buried near the altar. Today it is home to the world-famous Gewandhous Orchestra and the 800-year-old Thomanerchor boys choir.

  • Munich

    Munich

    Bavaria's capital and gateway to the Alps, this green city is great for strolling from sites like the Marienplatz to the Nymphenburg Palace. Besides Oktoberfest, Munich is well-known for its beautiful architecture and outstanding museums. Sites such as the New City Hall, with the famous Glockenspiel, the Residenz (former home of Bavarian kings) and the National Opera House are all located in the compact city center.

    Nuremberg

    Nuremberg

    Famous for holding the post WWII trials, this city was once the center of the German Renaissance. For hundreds of years it was the undeclared capital of the Holy Roman Empire and the preferred residence of most German kings. The city has much to offer including the rebuilt Nuremberg Castle and the world-famous gingerbread at Hauptmarkt.

  • Cologne

    Cologne

    Situated along the Rhine River, the twin spires of the famous Cologne Cathedral dominate the skyline. Visitors can climb the 509 stairs to the top for an amazing view of the city. A walk around town will reveal Roman towers and walls as well as Gothic churches and modern architecture. And if you have a sweet tooth, don't forget to visit the Chocolate Museum.

    Dresden

    Dresden

    Once known as the Jewel Box for its many valuable art treasures built by the Saxon kings who called this city home. Nearly completely destroyed by controversial bombing raids near the end of WWII, the city has carefully reconstructed several iconic buildings including the Zwinger Palace, the Semper Oper (Opera House) and beautiful Frauenkirche.

  • Heidelberg

    Heidelberg

    About an hour south of Frankfurt, Heidelberg is Germany's most famous university town. During WWII the city suffered almost no bombing damage and retains an enchanting baroque charm. The old town, or Altstadt, is a maze of narrow gothic streets along the river Neckar with the famous Heidelberg Castle perched above on a nearby hilltop. Considered by some the intellectual capital of Germany, Heidelberg is culturally diverse city attracting thousands of tourists every year.

    Garmish-Partenkirchen

    Garmish-Partenkirchen

    These two towns sit at the base of the Alps along the Germany-Austria border and were merged to host the 1936 Winter Olympic games. Garmisch has a more contemporary feel while Partenkirchen retains the character of an old-world Alpine village. Germany's highest peak, the 10,000-foot Zugspitze, sits just south of town offering world-class skiing and hiking.

With numerous beautiful churches, the magnificent Hercules Hall in the Munich Residenz as well as open-air stages and town squares, there are no shortage of wonderful performance options in Germany.
