Insider tips for city trips in Germany
It doesn’t have to be New York or Bangkok, Germany also has attractive and vibrant cities to offer, in which there is so much to experience. So why not use the next long weekend or the coming semester break for a city trip? City trips, especially in their own country, have the reputation of being something for the older generation, but in reality, this prejudice has long been a thing of the past and those who still hold back from it let you miss out on many exciting discoveries and exciting experiences. And two more aspects that make city trips in Germany the ideal travel format for the young generation: In most cases, they are not only more cost-effective than club holidays, air travel, etc., they can also be taken spontaneously and without extensive preparation.
City trips for adrenaline junkies
For friends of cozy pub culture, traditional student cities like Münster and Heidelberg are ideal destinations for a city break. Here, visitors can stroll through the narrow streets of the old town and relax on a park bench on the banks of the Aasee or the king’s chair let. From the afternoon onwards, shady bars and rustic pubs invite you to happy hour. Have you ever taken a beer tour? Otherwise, there is hardly a better setting for this than the flair of centuries-old student culture, which you can feel on a city trip in Heidelberg and Münster.
Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Cologne or Frankfurt: Which of the vibrant multi-cultural metropolises can you go to for your next city trip in Germany? There is always something going on around the clock and usually so much at the same time that it is difficult to decide how to best use the short time of the city trip. An exclusive guided tour of the Reeperbahn or would you prefer a harbor tour? Kreuzberg or Friedrichshain? Olympic Park or English Garden? The reports and descriptions of these cities on the Internet will definitely give you a short respite before you can start the next adventure of your city trip.
City trips for art and culture fans
On a city trip to Nuremberg, Dresden, Trier, and Weimar, everyone who is interested in history, art, culture, and music will get their money. Everyone can find the necessary information on the Internet which museum or birthplace you should visit first on your city trip, where the oldest building in the city is located, and on which city tour you can learn most about architecture. And if at the end of a day full of aesthetic activity, the lower needs of the body overtake you, you don’t have to search long for restaurant tips.
City trips for dreamers and creatives
After all, on different travel websites, you can also discover less touristy yet incredibly beautiful and worthwhile destinations for your next city trip, such as the easternmost and northernmost cities in Germany – Görlitz, and Flensburg. One of the top recommendations during a city trip to Görlitz is a film tour because scenes from well-known films such as The Reader or The Survey of the World were filmed in front of the panorama of the historic old town. And in Flensburg not only the white sails of old ships and the sea breeze invite you to dream, but also the hidden courtyards and corridors that criss-cross the city center.
So what are you waiting for? Bags and rucksacks packed and off to the next city trip in Germany!
