You can enjoy the city skyline and watch large ships glide along the mighty river as the gothic towers of the iconic cathedral get closer and closer. In 2008, people began placing “love locks” on the railings that separate pedestrians and cyclists from trains rattling across the bridge to Cologne Central Station. Most are engraved with names or initials of couples, but some have other messages. The colorful sea of feelings is great to photograph or maybe even add. Against a dramatic mountainous backdrop, Germany’s fairytale castle must be seen on a hill to believe it. The Palatinate is best known for producing Riesling and you will notice that there are more than 35 wineries to visit throughout the region.
In the early 1960s, before they became famous, the Beatles played in various clubs around the Reeperbahn. The Beatles-Platz (Beatles Square/Plaza) was created to resemble a vinyl record and is surrounded by five statues representing The Beatles, each of which sometimes played during their engagements in Hamburg. Munich is germany’s third largest city and is known for its beautiful architecture and culture. The architecture of the city is impressive with its mix of historic and modern buildings. Although badly damaged during World War II, many of the buildings have been rebuilt and the city center appears largely as it was in the late 1800s, like Marienplatz in the heart of the city.
And after all that adventure, end your visit to one of the many good restaurants scattered around the city. Another equally attractive tourist option is to take a boat trip to the 17th-century St. Bartholomew Pilgrimage Chapel, on the south side of the lake, and walk from here to Lake Obersee. Berchtesgaden, at the end of Deutsche Alpenstrasse, is perhaps the most famous seaside resort and one of the most popular mountain resorts in the Bavarian Alps. For a truly unforgettable experience, why not consider a visit in winter? If so, you’ll be rewarded with the chance to see Marienplatz come to life with a spectacular display of lights and ornaments during the annual Christmas market.
I still have many premium treks to do in Germany, but few multi-day treks hold a sail for the Rheinsteig. The Rheinsteig stretches for 300 kilometers between Wiesbaden and Bonn, and at the time of writing I have only ridden 5 of the 21 stages. While the Eifelsteig runs through a national park, the Rheinsteig goes up and down from city to city along the Rhine. Almost all stages start with a steep slope outside the city and end with a descent at your next overnight stop.
You will certainly have no shortage of Oktoberfest 2023 during your visit to this amazing country. The cities have a deep-rooted history that should be explored by tourists from all over the world. As one of the longest and largest rivers in Europe, the Rhine is navigable for much of its length.
