With its rich cultural heritage and varied landscapes Germany casts a spell over millions if visitors from all over the world every year. Of course there are countless guided tours, but alternatively numerous theme roads across the country offer an optimal opportunity, to explore on one's own account and accordingly to one's interests the cultural historical treasures as well as the most scenic landscapes and to experience the country's culture.

Dresden ZwingerWith this site we won't show you just the world famous sights like the Cologne Cathedral or the Castle Sanssouci at Berlin-Potsdam, but more unknown places and special cultural historical features, which are no less worth seeing.
Our tour starts at Bremen, a beautiful example of an old "Hanse" town at the northern coast of Germany. As you might know, the "Hanse" was a union of Baltic sea-ports as a protection against the pirates  in the 13th and 14th century.....

Quedlinburg MarktplatzIn the Harz region you'll find the charming mediaeval cities Quedlinburg, which belongs to the UNESCO World Heritage and Wernigerode

Leipzig is an old trading town, who's long tradition of trade fairs dates back to the 12th century... Please visit this most charming city - it is our home town and the cradle of the peaceful revolution in Germany

From Leipzig it is just a one hour's ride to Dresden, the former residence of king August with the nickname "the strong" - a treasury of cultural historical masterpieces. 

Follow us to the Federal country Bavaria now, enjoy the high mountains, visit its capital Munich, the famous city, where the Festival of Beer takes place each year in October, and don't miss Mittenwald - an absolutely beautiful small city with elaborately painted houses in the south of Munich...


further pages showing more of the rich German cultural heritage and special cultural features are in preparation, just too less time... :-)
