Hi,
I think there are many beautiful and interessting places in Germany.
I like my hometown Berlin, it is a good place for young people.
If you go to Berlin, you also could visit Potsdam
http://potsdam.de/cms/ziel/26846/DE/
a nice small town close to Berlin with a historical dutch and russian quarter and castles.

And also Spreewald is not far from Berlin
http://www.spreewald.de/

In Saxony you might visit Dresden, Meissen and Sächsische Schweiz.

This are just a view nice places. You can find via internet more english informations
about thoses places.
Welcome to Germany. ^^

Last year we had a friend over from Japan. For one week unlimited travel by rail all over Germany he paid about 80 Euros. However I cannot find this offer anymore. But the following pages give some idea what is on offer and also have some information about places to visit. I would also add the following towns to your visiting list: Hamburg, Munich, Rothenburg ob der Tauber

Hi Yongtae!

What kind of vacation are you interested in? Do you wanna see beautiful nature, small villages or big cities, historic places like castles or modern architecture? Are you more interested in well known, famous places or in insider tips? Are you interested in night live, archtecture, museums or something else?

Regards from Hamburg,

Johannes

I'm interested in visiting major cities + small towns that shows real Germany.
I am thinking of visiting Frankfurt, Hamburg, Stuttgart, and Munich.
oh..I will be in Europe about less than 6 weeks, and probably go to Germany
around June 10th I think.(I haven't made a plan yet)
Thank you all who wrote any comments on this subject.

Hi!

I agree with henchan, Stuttgart is not very interesting. You should see some small towns in Baden-Württemberg (maybe Schwäbisch Hall?), they are very nice, but skip Stuttgart. I can give you later some tips for Hamburg, but I'm still at work and wanna go home. ;) Will tell you later...

maybe one more thing...
Castle Neuschwanstein in Bavaria (near the small town Fuessen)...
I have never been there but it's one of the german tourist highlights...

@blubbi
the oldest city in Germany is Worms! hihi :-p
(by the way... there is a beautiful cathedral and the oldest jew cemetery in Europe)


all the advices here are really good...really!
you should visit all the towns and cities!
but I guess 1-2weeks are not enough time...
so my suggestions (based on the routemap of many korean friends and guests of my family):

Highlights...
- Heidelberg (a really beautiful city with a beautiful old town and one of the must-sees of korean and american tourists ;-) )
- Berlin (I guess you will spend at least 2-3 days there)
- Lake Constance ("Bodensee" in german, the biggest lake in Germany)
- Castle Neuschwanstein (THE german castle and supposed to be the template for Disney's Magic Kingdom)
- Hamburg (famous harbour)
- Cologne Cathedral

other nice cities/things to visit...
- Freiburg (a really beautiful city, but it's quite far from...everywhere :-D  but it's near the swiss and the french border so maybe a good opportunity for a short trip, and it's in the Black forest)
- Munich (unfortunately the Oktoberfest - the famous beer festival - begins at the end of september)
- Rothenburg ob der Tauber (a small old town)
- Loreley (a famous rock at the Rhine)
- Ruhr Area


Of course these places are the touristic highlights and maybe you want to see a more real Germany...
but if this is your only trip to Germany maybe this will help you...


I guess the easiest way to travel is by train, but the german railway is quite expensive (oneway Frankfurt to Berlin by ICE: 111,00 Eur, www.bahn.de) so the links of Peter are quite useful!


Have a nice trip! :-)

Hey Hey Montesuna :-),

Munich has much more than Oktoberfest!

http://londonoa.files.wordpress.com/2008/04/munich.jpg


@george8s
If you come to Munich in Summer I will invite you to the Beergarden ;-)
my recommendations for South Germany would be as follows;

Start in Heidelberg and go on to Wuerzburg where you can take a Bus to follow the Romantische Street;

http://www.guide-to-bavaria.com/en/Romantic-Road-Map.html

main Points to Stop are:

Wuerzburg
Rothenburg
Dinkelsbuehl
Noerdlingen
Fuessen ( where you can Visit the Neuschwanstein Castle )

and on the way back come to enjoy Muenchen ...

See a few Photios below:

Of course the Places which have been recommended from the other Guys are also good but MUNICH is the No1 ;-)
