Places to visit in Germany

Hi guys I think it would be nice to have a list of places that are interesting to visit for our foreign German learners.
I’ll start with my hometown “Idstein”. Located 25mins from Frankfurt Airport in Hessen it has a lovely downtown and nice restaurants and cafés. It is surrounded by a beautiful landscape and its castle and the famous witch tower are worth taking a closer look.
I would love to hear what other recommendations other tutors might have because I love to explore New places also in my home country.

Wilhelma in Stuttgart is the most gorgeous botanical and zoological garden in Germany or even worldwide. Enjoy the beautiful parks and the historical buildings with its unique (oriental) architecture, some of them dating back to 1830. And after a wonderful day there enjoy a cold beer in the Neckarbiergarten just on the other side of the Neckar river!


Good idea. A few years ago I visited Schwarzwald and found it incredibly beautiful! I went to a few places there but the small city Gengenbach was amazing. The town was so pretty and the locals were the some of the friendliest people I’ve ever met. I happened to be there at the start of advent season so there was a great traditional market that the whole town attended. I made tons of friends and drank tons of Glühwein :sweat_smile: I also got to practice a lot of German!

It was perfect.


Don’t forget to enjoy a wonderful Schwarzwälder Obstwässerle… :wink:

Die Eifel is a beautiful place to visit in Germany! I’ve been there once with my family and I abolutely loved it. There are small mountains which were Volcanos many years ago and it is located in Rheinland-Pfalz in Germany.


What a nice idea!
I can totally recommend to visit my small but absolutely lovely hometown Waldkirch. Waldkirch is as well a part of Schwarzwald and has a lot to offer for tourists. A piece of history flashes out from every nook and cranny, old walls, picturesque chapels or a curious fountains. You need some time and good shoes to discover everything - at the latest when the Kastelburg is to be conquered. The castle ruins, shrouded in mystery, not only attract visitors from abroad, but also inspire their own residents again and again. A group has come together to bring the history of the Kastelburg back to life again and again in a nightly drama. The tower tours have become a real insider tip and allow you to experience the history of Waldkirchen’s landmark in an entertaining way.

Waldkirch really has a lot to offer and lets us experience the past in a very modern way. The virtual city tour, which shows and describes historical buildings and places in Waldkirch, offers an overview of other historical sites in Waldkirch.

So plan your next trip to my beautiful home and enjoy the calm but interesting city in the middle of black forest!
