The Rhine: This is one of the most popular holiday destinations not only in Germany, but also in Europe, simply because there is so much to look forward to in the form of attractions like castles, cathedrals, hiking trails, vineyards, et al. Although castles are interspersed all across Germany, the most important ones are in Rhine, with some being ruins, and others surviving the test of time. What makes this city even more interesting from the point of view of art and literature lovers is that the magnificent beauty of Rhine has inspired many painters and poets to create some of their masterpieces.

 

Trier: Situated in the Mosel River Valley, Trier is the oldest city in Germany, and was among the epicenters of the Roman empire, which is quite evident from the architectural marvels that still exist within the ruins. A must visit place is the combination of two churches;  The Dom St. Peter and the Liebfrauenkirche, both of which were built over ruins.

 

Berchtesgaden: A beautiful place to spend time in due to the sheer scenic beauty it offers to onlookers, Berchtesgaden is visited mostly during the winter season dur to its ski resorts that are located at the edge of the Berchtesgaden National Park. Another popular tourist attraction is the Eagle's Nest, a mountain that was Hitler's refuge in the second world war.
