See the magnificent cathedral in Cologne or visit the spa town of Baden Baden. European history and culture come alive here. Come see why Germany is a magical and enchanting place.

Popular Attractions in Germany

The Roman Forum
4.6/5
517 Reviews
Square
The Roman Forum is located in the center of Old Frankfurt. It is also the city of old city hall. The square was built in the Middle Ages and destroyed during WWII. After the war, it was almost completely reconstructed. Now it's the only Middle-Age style street left in Frankfurt and stands in stark contrast to the other modern buildings in the city. The Roman Forum is a can't-miss sightseeing destination. Nearly all of the top attractions in Frankfurt are nearby, including City Hall, the museum, the church, etc. For many travelers, the Roman Forum is a great place to come and learn about Frankfurt's culture.
Cologne Cathedral
4.7/5
792 Reviews
Church
Cologne Cathedral is a large church in Germany and one of the tallest churches. It is world-renowned for its lightness and elegance. It is located in the heart of Cologne, on the banks of the Rhine. Building on a foundation of hundreds of thousands of tons of stones until it reached its current massive scale, the German national spirit contained in this is something that other buildings simply cannot represent.
Berlin Cathedral
4.7/5
528 Reviews
Church
Located on the eastern side of the Museum Island in the city of Berlin, the Berlin Cathedral is backed by the River Spree, which was once the church of the Hohenzollern royal family, whose family members were buried in the basement. The Berlin Cathedral was destroyed in World War II, and the repair work continues to this day, but it is still Berlin's eye-catching landmark, known as the "Museum Island entrance". The three baroque domes are extraordinary, and the four-story building facing the Spree River is decorated in a Baroque palace style, with a splendid style; the bell tower on the west side is still in service, the bells of prayer are long and long; the stairs can be climbed over the cathedral. Admire the stunning views of downtown Berlin from the top.
Brandenburg Gate
4.6/5
604 Reviews
Square
Modelled after the acropolis in Athens, Greece, this portal has seen some of the most interesting history in the world unfold at its gates. From marches through Pariser Platz, Napolean's armies stealing statues, and the burning of the Reichstag down the street, this monument is a testament to history. After it sustained heavy damage during WW2, the gate became inaccessible to most of the world, as the Berlin wall was constructed and the gate fell into the zone of death surrounding it-- it's only fitting that this was the site people gathered at in the hundreds of thousands to celebrate the end of cold war. Gather here for tourist information-- there's an office in the south wing of the gate. Notice, in the middle of the street, you can see the line where the Berlin Wall once stood; imagine what Brandenburg Gate would say, given the chance.
