Baden-Würtemberg

Castles and palaces on the one hand, ultra-modern industrial culture on the other, plus popular vacation regions, dynamic metropolises and low-key towns with historic city centers. Because of its versatility, Baden-Württemberg can never really be grasped and given a universally valid label. If you travel between Stuttgart and Karlsruhe, ...

Bavaria

Painters found their inspiration in Bavaria, as did writers, and to this day the state in Germany's southeast is a place where culture and creativity are just as much at home as handed-down traditions and old values. As a visitor you have the choice between mighty mountains or gentle hills, ...

Berlin

City, country, river: Berlin combines all three points. The German capital is also a federal state and its landscape is dominated by the Spree River and its forests. In the center of Berlin, Germany was once divided and found its way back together peacefully with the fall of the Berlin ...

Brandenburg

Just a few minutes' drive outside the country's busiest, largest and arguably most exciting city, Brandenburg is a state where more than a third of the total land area has been set aside for nature. More than 3,000 lakes and Germany's largest forest area in the Schorfheide Biosphere Reserve attract nature ...

Bremen

Bremen is not only an old Hanseatic city but also the smallest state in Germany. Together with the city of Bremerhaven, it forms the city-state "Free Hanseatic City of Bremen". Until today, the cityscape of Bremen is characterized by shipping. On the market square there are several buildings, which were ...

Hamburg

The proximity to the sea can be felt everywhere in the northern German port and trading city of Hamburg - whether along the numerous waterways, whose height is even influenced by the tides, in the brick-dominated Speicherstadt, at the fish market with its market criers or at the extensive harbor. ...

Hessen

The Brothers Grimm were born in Hanau and created much of their work in Kassel. Whether Hessen's deep forests and the gentle elevations of the low mountain ranges inspired them cannot be determined with certainty, but it is often easy to feel transported to the world of legends and fairy ...

Mecklenburg-Vorpommern

Mecklenburg-Vorpommern has gained a firm place among Germany's most popular travel destinations, mainly thanks to the inviting landscapes around the Mecklenburg Lake District. But if you're traveling by houseboat, bike or hiking boots in the area between Müritz and Neustrelitz, you haven't seen everything of the state yet. Then ...

Lower Saxony

On one side, the waves of the North Sea lash the coast and wash over some of the state's most popular vacation islands, while on the other side, the Harz Mountains and Weserbergland lure visitors to outdoor activities ranging from climbing to mountain biking. Lower Saxony is Germany's second largest ...

North Rhine-Westphalia

People in the Rhineland are usually credited with a pronounced cheerfulness as an attribute, while those in the Münsterland are said to be reserved. The Sauerland, according to popular opinion, consists of mountains, streams and reservoirs, while the Ruhr region is a chain of cities strung together. North Rhine-Westphalia, ...

Rhineland-Palatinate

It would be easy to reduce Rhineland-Palatinate to the Rhine and Moselle. After all, these great rivers not only shape the landscape, but also convey an extremely inviting image to the world with their images of sunlit vineyards and unspoiled villages. But Rhineland-Palatinate can do more than just look good. ...

Saarland

If the European idea has a permanent home somewhere, it is probably in Saarland. Nestled in the border region between France, Germany, Luxembourg and Belgium, Germany's small state is culturally diverse and cosmopolitan, and well worth a visit. Saarbrücken, for example, is a city surrounded by wooded hills and ...

Saxony

The sky is getting higher and higher from west to east, at least if you look at Saxony from a topographical perspective. While the country around the modern, creative metropolis of Leipzig and the capital city of Dresden, which is characterized by famous architectural monuments, is still quite flat, the ...

Saxony-Anhalt

Saxony-Anhalt stretches from the quiet, restrained Altmark around Stendal and Salzwedel to the mountain ranges of the Harz with its stories and with towns worth seeing like Quedlinburg to the unique floodplain landscapes on the Elbe. In between are small, inviting towns, wide landscapes and several lakes and dams. Magdeburg, ...

Schleswig-Holstein

Schleswig-Holstein likes to call itself the land between the seas, and indeed there is hardly a better destination for people who like sea air around their noses than the state in Germany's north. With around 330 kilometers of coastline on the Baltic Sea and another 200 kilometers on the North Sea, Schleswig-Holstein ...

Thuringia

There are not many reasons why you should not travel to Thuringia. After all, it is home to Wartburg Castle, an important piece of German history, and Weimar, one of the most important sites of German culture. The fact that the state in the middle of Germany has a capital ...
