"It depends on your interests..." Germany Favorite Tip by juni_2002

Germany General: 535 reviews and 476 photos

Favorite thing: It depends on your interests and what you know about Germany.
But: You should not only visit the typical tourist areas. There is so much to discover.
Especially the eastern part of Germany has become really nice and I have always enjoyed my trips there.
Of course Bavaria is a nice place and I have been there for holiday so many times during my childhood and sometimes also for short trips. Do not only visit Munich and the tourist attractions. Take your time to enjoy the mountains - you do not have to be a mountain climber - you can also walk up or take the skyway.
Indeed I think every part of Germany is worth a visit, even the industrial part in Nordrhein-Westfalen. It became really green and you can visit old industrial parks - quite nice. In Oberhausen you find the largest shopping mall of Germany, it is called CentrO. Next to it there is an old industrial building called Gasometer where you can visit exhibitions all over the year.
The northern part is really nice, quite flat, you can rent a bicycle and ride along the coast or 'Deiche', take a bath in North or East Sea, maybe visiting one of the islands.
