Top Attractions in Germany

Brandenburg Gate in Berlin

First visit: April 2013
Places visited: Frankfurt, Munich, Berlin

I´ve been to Germany a few times visiting the cities of Frankfurt, Berlin and Munich and among the three, my favorite is Berlin as there´s just so much to explore in this beautiful city. In case you are traveling to these cities, here are some of my travel tips.


Frankfurt

This building is one of Frankfurt's most important landmark: The Römer. It is a medieval building in Frankfurt am Main and has been the city hall (Rathaus) for 600 years.

Römerberg is the old center of Frankfurt, with a number of historic buildings dating to the 14th and 15th century.

The Römer Justice fountain.

The Cathedral of St. Bartholomew, also known as the Frankfurt Cathedral is not to be missed. A very nice lady from the church told us a lot of things about the cathedral's history and I have to say she was very enthusiastic.

The Commerzbank Tower is a 56-storey skyscraper in Frankfurt. It is about 259 meters. It is actually the tallest building in Frankfurt and it would have been great to see it much closer than this but unfortunately, we didn't have much time and just passed by it.

Berlin

Brandenburg Gate is probably the most known landmark in Berlin and is simply not to be missed.

Berlin Cathedral: The inside is really beautiful and for the entrance fee of 7 Euros, is really worth a visit. You also get great views of the Reichstag Building and the town hall among others from the dome walkway.

Town Hall of Berlin (Rotes Rathaus): This picture was actually taken from the dome walkway of the Berlin Cathedral.

Reichstag Building: Due to limited time, I was not able to visit the dome but that would be on top of my list the next time I visit Berlin.

Alexanderplatz: One of the most known public squares in Berlin located close to the TV tower.

Fernsehturm de Berlin: Constructed between 1965 and 1969, this television tower is simply not to be missed when in Berlin.

Saint Nicholas' Church: I was not able to visit this church which is the oldest church in Berlin although I was able to see it from the dome of the Berlin Cathedral.

Victory Column or Siegessäule: Took this photo from the Brandenburg Gate and hope to visit it next time.

Berlin Wall: This is just a small part of the wall located near Checkpoint Charlie.

Checkpoint Charlie: This is one of the best ways to experience history at close range.

Topographie Des Terrors: This is definitely not to be missed since aside for it being free to the public, you learn a lot about what happened during the Nazi period.

Martin Gropius Bau: Located near the Topography of Terror museum, this well known exhibition hall was originally a museum of applied arts.

Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe: Also known as the Holocaust Memorial, this memorial is designed by architect Peter Eisenman.

East Side Gallery: At about 1.3 km in length, looking at all these graffiti is surely not to be missed.
