The 100 best things to do in Germany 13/33

Here are the 100 best things to do in Germany that will show you the charm, beauty and cultural diversity of this country.

Germany is rich with surprises and contrasts just waiting to be discovered by the discerning tourist. A country of enchanting little villages nestling between lofty and imposing mountains, fairytale castles and churches and lush vineyards rolling down towards the banks of the Rhine or the Mosel, Germany also boasts of the more rumbustious Munich Beer Festival and the Cologne Carnival, a very fine choice of gateaux, sausages and beer and a powerful and somewhat spooky folkloric tradition.

37. Halbe Tropical Islands (Krausnick)

Just 60 km south of Berlin, in the 1,000 year-old village of Krausnick, Halbe, lies the leisure and family park “Tropical Islands”. This little paradise just outside Berlin has to be seen to be believed. Set like a jewel in the enchanting Spreewald Forest, but with palm trees, sandy beaches, tropical birds and gardens overflowing with exotic plants, it offers exactly what it promises: a holiday on a tropical island.

Playgrounds and water games ensure that the smaller guests are happy, while the larger ones can enjoy the biggest sauna and wellness resort in Europe. A number of different types of accommodation are available for overnight stays. A great opportunity to relax from the bustle and activity of Berlin, Halbe Tropical Islands is easily accessible from Berlin or Cottbus to the station of Brand. A shuttle bus travels regularly from Brand to Halbe Tropical Islands.

38. Dresden Frauenkirche

Dresden`s famous Frauenkirche has witnessed both opulent glory and complete destruction in the course of its over 1,000 years of history. Originally conceived as a missionary church in the 11th century, it underwent a number of major architectural changes to re-emerge, in the middle of the 18th century, as one of the finest examples of sacred Baroque architecture in Germany.

In February 1945 the Frauenkirche was totally destroyed in one of the last bombing raids of WWII, to lie in ruins for more than forty years. It was not until after the reunification of Germany that the project to begin rebuilding it was discussed, a project which began in 1994 and was to take 11 years. Today the Dresden Frauenkirche can easily be accessed and viewed in all its former glory. It stands in the middle of Dresden’s old market place, nearest tram stops “Altmarkt” or “Pirnaischer Platz”.

39. Erlebnis Zoo (Hanover)

Of great appeal to young and old alike is Hanover’s huge adventure zoo, which was founded in 1865 and now attracts over 1 million visitors per year. 22 hectares in size, the zoo houses over 2,000 different animals and nearly 200 species. Alongside close contact to the animals through thick protective glass plus various shows and public feeding-times, the zoo offers additional attractions such as the Sambesi boat trip, Yukon bay and an adventure playground for children.

Refreshment is offered by numerous little cafes offering specialties from a number of different countries. Since at least a day is required to see everything, this is all to the well. It is located in Adenauerallee, on the outskirts of the Eilenriede woods; bus or tram stop (“Zoo”) are minutes away. The zoo is closed on Mondays; its winter season with different attractions is from 31st October to 21st March.
