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.
91. Reptilium (Landau)
In 2004, Germany’s largest Reptilium (zoo for reptiles) opened in the town of Landau in Rhineland Palatinate. Over 1000 reptiles and amphibians have their home here, as do scorpions and giant spiders; the “Baby Station” offers insight into hatching and raising their offspring and public feedings and other shows are available. Particularly popular are the spitting cobras!
Landau can be reached in just over half an hour from Karlsruhe by car, or an hour by train. The nearest airport is Mannheim.
92. Martin Luther’s House (Wittenberg)
Now the largest museum of the Reformation in the world, the Martin Luther house was originally a monastery and then part of the University. Luther and his wife occupied it around 1515; since Luther’s death in 1546 it has been used as a military hospital, a boarding school and a Protestant seminary, becoming a UNESCO World Heritage building in 1994.
Wittenberg is just over an hours`drive from Hamburg. There is no direct train connection, but trains run from Hamburg with two changes. The Martin Luther house is located on Collegienstraße, 15 minutes from the railway station.
93. Deutsches Museum (Munich)
With around 28.000 exhibits covering a total area of over 50,000 metres and an average of 1.5 million visitors annually, Munich’s “Deutsches Museum” is the biggest museum of science and technology worldwide. The laws of physics as well as scientific methods and instruments are presented in a way which is both entertaining and instructive for adults and children equally.
Visitors are advised to come by public transport, as parking spaces are very limited. Exit at tram stop “Isartor” or bus stop “Boschbrücke” (around 13 minutes).
