Feel Good – Sustainable Travel in Germany
Discover amazing UNESCO World Heritage sites, charming castles and palaces and laid-back towns and cities.
Choose from over 10,000 towns and cities across the country.
Each has its very own character and offers unmissable highlights. One thing they all have in common, from small towns to major cities, is that exploring them on foot is hugely rewarding. You can stroll around charming neighbourhoods, browse in small boutiques and vintage shops, and fall in love with local architecture. And best of all, you can relax and unwind in extensive gardens and historical parks.
What’s more, a growing number of towns and cities are offering more sustainable ways to discover their sights and attractions. Apart from walking, you can also explore them by bicycle or e-bike on signposted cycle paths, or go sightseeing from the water in a canoe.

Delve into Germany’s wealth of cultural and natural treasures.
Only very few countries can match Germany’s 51 UNESCO World Heritage sites, which mark it out as a veritable treasure trove of human and natural history. Each and every one of these sites is deemed to be of outstanding universal value – and is protected for future generations by detailed conservation plans. Collectively, they represent culture and nature in all their facets and in breathtaking beauty.
You can stroll around incredibly well-preserved old quarters, marvel at the magnificent scenery and enjoy Germany’s rich cultural heritage. Discover historical churches, abbeys and other places of worship, be amazed by extraordinary reminders of cultural and technological history, or fall under the spell of magical castles and palaces in romantic settings.

Fall for the charm of Germany’s glorious castles and palaces.
Around 25,000 castles, palaces and stately homes bear witness to Germany’s turbulent history. Visiting them is like travelling back to a time of myths and legends. This is where kings and queens resided, emperors held court and minstrels enthralled their audiences.
Some buildings retain the splendour of yesteryear, while others are mere ruins, yet still powerful reminders of days gone by. Secluded castles sit on craggy peaks surrounded by trees and can be reached on enchanting walks. Elsewhere, ornate palaces sit in elaborately designed landscape gardens, their well-maintained splendour providing the perfect backdrop for a leisurely stroll.
We highly recommend visiting one of the historical festivals, where costumes, music and authentic dishes bring the past vividly to life.
