Germany is arguably the Real Estate capital of Europe and with its prime location and plenty of property investment opportunities, it’s no wonder why people choose to buy property here! That being said, one of the many reasons people choose to invest in German Real Estate is because of the unique and exciting culture the country has to offer.
Without further ado, here are our top things to do in Germany that you must visit:
Brandenburg GateBrandenburg Gate is an 18th century neoclassical monument, and is known to be Berlin's most famous landmark. It was built late 17th century, and marked the start of the road from Berlin to Brandenburg an der Havel, today it is one of Germany's most visited landmarks
Berlin WallThe Berlin Wall was a barrier which divided the East and West of Berlin from 1961 to 1989. The wall made it very difficult for the people of Berlin to cross the East West border, there were 12 checkpoints built along the wall which soldiers guarded. First built using barbed wire the wall was eventually 12 foot tall and 4 foot wide, topped with a huge pipe which made climbing it very difficult, in fact over 170 people were killed trying to get over the wall. In 1989 when the cold war began, it was decided that citizens were free to cross the border and the wall began to be destroyed. The survived sections of the wall can still be seen today displaying artwork from over 100 artists.
The Romantic Road is one of the world's oldest touring Roads and Germany’s most popular tourist route. It was created in 1950 with the aim to bring more tourism to Germany following the war. The 350km road stretches from Würzburg to Füssen passing through many towns such as The old town of Dinkelsbühl and by the fairytale castle of Neuschwanstein.
The 19th-century Neuschwanstein Castle is one of the most visited castles in Europe, it was built for King Ludwig II on a hill above Hohenschwangau in Bavaria as a private retreat. Following the death of the king before the completion of the castle in 1886, the fairytale castle was opened to the public. The castle now has millions of visitors each year.
Taking a trip along the Romantic Road will lead you past Rothenburg ob der Tauber. This is a well-preserved medieval old town on a plateau overlooking the Tauber River. Taking a walk around Rothenburg ob der Tauber is sure to give you a true feel of the charming medieval atmosphere as it was lived. Be sure to climb the Town Hall Tower to catch the best view of the town.
Zugspitze Mountain is the highest mountain in Germany at 2,962m above sea level. Situated in the ski resort of Zugspitze (Bavaria), it is not only popular with skiers due to its fantastic 360° panoramic views over Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland. Only an hour and a half drive away from Munich, Zugspitze is very easy to reach.
