    Berlin Things to Do

    One of Berlin’s most famous landmarks is the Reichstag. This iconic building has helped the German Bundestag become the most visited parliament in the world, partly because of its architecture, partly because of its accessibility, but mainly because of its history. Kaiser Wilhelm II laid the final stone of this neoclassical building in 1894 and it...

    The Neanderkirche as consecrated in 1687, around the same time as the Bergerkirche and, like that church, was built set back from the road in the courtyard area of an already-existing building.

    Cologne Things to Do

    Update June 2015: After many, many times in the cathedral I've only now found out why the shrine of the three wise kings sometimes can be seen quite close and sometimes only from afar through a fence. I realised that I always used to be there on a Saturdayafternoon, when there is confession time in the cathedral and when the entrance to the shrine...

    Park Wilhelma, Home to botanical gardens and the city’s renowned zoo. Here you can walk along the banks of the Neckar River. I didn't actually have time to go to the zoo or the gardens. I would have liked knowing about it before arriving in Stuttgart, so I tell you about it here.

  • Deutsches Eck

    Koblenz Things to Do

    Deutsches Eck (German corner) is the headland at the confluence of the Rhein and Mosel rivers. For some reason I'd expected the joining of such big rivers to be visible (some turbulence, perhaps) but the waters were calm when i wandered down to have a look. In 1897 a massive statue of Wilhelm l was erected on the paved headland, standing on top of...

    Mainz' St. Martin Cathedral dominates the skyline and has been the centre of the city for many centuries. The roots of the present building can be traced back to the year 975. However there has been a Cathedral in Mainz since at least the 6th century, probably even since the 4th century A.D. After substantial fire damage in 1009 and 1081, the...

  • Rathaus - Town Hall and Market Square

    Rothenburg ob der Tauber Things to Do

    The Market Square is a busy part of Rothenburg ob der Tauber. Here you will find the Rathaus or Town Hall, the Clock Tower which is now the tourist office and Saint George's Fountain which dates from around 1608. While we were here, there was a weird balancing act going on. I can only guess there was some kind of seating structure hidden within...

    Aachen Things to Do

    The Nikolauskapelle in the North-West corner of the Dom church was constructed from 1473 till 1485. It was made in a Gothic style. The chapel had to be reinforced in later centuries as some of the foundation was flushed away. It's a square room with it's own atmosphere.

  • Marienbrücke - Mary's Bridge

    Schloss Neuschwanstein Things to Do

    Hohenschwangau Castle is an attraction until itself but with its close proximity, it is generally visited while in the area to see its more famous cousin, Neuschwanstein. To be perfectly honest, it's the first thing you really see when you get off the bus in the small town of Hohenschwangau and with its somewhat garish yellow paint job and awkward...

    Residence Palace stands in the center of Würzburg, on Residenzplaz.

  • Old Sausage Kitchen - Wurstkuchl

    4 out of 5 stars

    Regensburg Things to Do

    Said to be the world's oldest sausage kitchen. Beautiful setting, seating inside and outside...incredibly busy at lunchtimes and even beyond (partly thanks to cruise ship passengers like us with vouchers I guess haha). As for the sausages themselves...tasty but nothing particularly special compared to other sausages I tried in Germany.

  • Cathedral - Kaiserdom

    Speyer Things to Do

    In medieval times it was custom to protect houses and churches against the evil spirits. This was mostly done with statues, carvings or reliefs on the walls which showed demonic figures, meant to ward off the evil by holding up the mirror to the devil so that he sees his own evil. During Gothic times these demons were integrated into the gargoyles,...

  • Sanssouci Palace

    Potsdam Things to Do

    The easiest way to reach Sanssouci Palace from the train station is by the Schlosser Line bus. The bus stops near the entrance to the palace where there’s also a useful information office with maps of the park. My preference though is to get off at Luisenplatz and walk through to the French Rondpoint which is at the bottom of the steps that lead...

  • The Fronhof

    Augsburg Things to Do

    Close to the hofgarten is the Fronhof. This huge building used to be the residence of the prince bishops of Augsburg. The hofgarten was originally part of its garden. Around the building itself there is still a lovely garden. I was particularly impressed with the huge sunflowers there.

    There are two Castles in Meersburg, the old and the new. I decided I would visit the Old Castle first, well known as the landmark of Meersburg as it can practically be seen from everywhere in town, quite handy for not getting lost! This Castle is very old, as it dates back to 7th century to the Merovingian King Dagobert I. Inside is an extensive...

    Dortmund Things to Do

    A warm autumnal Monday afternoon, first choice museums closed so we opted for an afternoon at the zoo. Pleasant way to spend time, attractive setting amongst trees and large open spaces for the good selection of animals. As usual Mrs Bonio only had eyes for the penguins, they were pretty entertaining though! Anyway, well worth a visit.

    Osnabrück Things to Do

    There has been a municipal theater in Osnabrück since 1832. The current main theater building was built from 1905 to 1909 – at a time when many medium-sized cities in Germany were building their city theaters.

    Gießen Things to Do

    Unlike Heidelberg, which built its inconspicuous City Theater in the middle of a city block surrounded by other buildings, the one in Giessen is a prominent free-standing building on a major intersection at the end of a strip of park and at the edge of the central pedestrian zone. The Giessen theater seats 600 people. It was built in 1906/1907 by...

    Schloß Pillnitz Things to Do

    From 1778 on the northwestern grounds were re-designed as an English style garden. The English pavillion was built, the pond constructed, an older building was reconstructed and used as orangery and so on. This part of the park has an ambience closer to natural landscape, you almost don't feel like it is designed. I like that a lot. Strolling...

    Frankfurt Things to Do

    I only spent half a day in Frankfurt but of course this movie geek had to visit the Deutsches Filmmuseum for the majority of my few hours in the city -- and it was worth every second! This isn't the best museum I've ever been to, but there are some pretty sweet pieces here that earn the museum a 5 star rating: 1. there's the original CINEMA sign...

    The zoo in Hoyerswerda is rather small, it was established on the grounds of the former castle park in 1959. However, you can still see about 100 species, there is enough to see and do for two or three hours. They are particularly proud of their new bear pit (pics 2 and 3). The animals aside, the zoo also is an exhibition ground for sculptures -...

    Of all cities in Rheinland-Pfalz/Rhineland-Palatinate, Speyer is one of my favourites. In the past I took my overseas colleagues to Speyer and also VTers who visit the region.

    The gate was designed by Carl Gotthard Langhans, and built between 1788 and 1791. The gate consists of 12 Doric columns, six to each side, forming five passageways. Citizens originally were allowed to use only the outermost two on each side. On top of the gate is a Quadriga, a chariot drawn by four horses. The new gate was originally named the...

    Marienplatz was buzzing with activity when we went on Saturday 7 November 2015. There were so many people, tourists and locals alike strolling along the pedestrianized thoroughfare. The crowds were also boosted by the fact that there was going to be a football/soccer match with the city’s famous team, Bayern-Munich that day. We saw lots of people...

    Berlin Things to Do

    Ever since the Brandenburg Gate was built it has become a symbol of the city. It was constructed as a symbol of peace - but then became a Prussian symbol, a Nazi symbol, and then a symbol of the division between East and West. Since reunification it has once again become a symbol of peace, and so I can’t think of a more fitting place to start a...
