Paying attention to the many treasures!

There are few places in Germany older than these wonderful cities, whose history, which often dates back more than two millennia, is brought to life with style and verve. Each one has played a major role in changing the course of German, European and sometimes even world history. While each city has its own unique attractions, all are known for an abundance of well-preserved churches, chapels, museums, castles, town halls and historic houses. At these destinations, visitors don’t just view monuments, they interact with history!
