​Attr​actions in Germany

From the historic and cosmopolitan city of Berlin and hiking in the Black Forest to enjoying the atmosphere at Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany has much to offer the discerning traveller.

A great way to discover all that Germany has to offer is by car and it's easier than you think. Take our car ferry to Dunkirk, Calais or Amsterdam and travel through the beautiful countryside at your own pace. The German autobahn covers over 8,000 miles and stretches across most of the country, making it one of the most convenient ways of seeing this historic country. 

Germany is packed with ancient cathedrals, spectacular palaces and charming medieval towns as well as a host of top museums and art galleries. It also boasts spectacular countryside from tranquil lakes and imposing mountains to sprawling forests.

The Brandenburg Gate

The Brandenburg Gate was built in the 18th-century and is one of the best-known landmarks in Berlin.  At 26-meters high it is an impressive sight, especially with the four-horse chariot perched on top. Once a symbol of division during the Cold War, it is now a national symbol of peace and unity.​

The Berlin Wall

What's left of the Berlin wall is a must see for anyone travelling to Berlin. What once divided East and West Berlin is now reduced to a few sections that remain as a symbol of the Cold War. The infamous Checkpoint Charlie still remains and for a brief history lesson make time for a visit to the Berlin Wall Exhibition. ​

Neuschwanstein Castle

Neuschwanstein Castle in southern Bavaria looks like something out of a fairy tale and is without doubt one of the most frequently photographed sights in Germany. The castle was commissioned by King Ludwig II as a dedication to the composer Richard Wagner. It is most famously said to be the inspiration for Sleeping Beauty's Castle in Disneyland.​

Nymphenburg Palace

Nymphenburg Palace or 'Castle of the Nymph' lies just west of Munich and is one of the most beautiful and breath-taking palaces in Europe.
