This city is the capital of the state of Bayern or Bavaria and the third largest city of Germany. It is considered to be one of the great cultural centers of Europe due to its exuberant atmosphere and vitality. Some of its expressing sights include the Frauenkirche- the symbol of Munich with its huge onion-domed towers that dominate the city, the Marienplatz which is a famous square in the city center of Munich, English Garden, Olympiapark, Deutsches Museum and a lot more.

This is the Marienplatz (Mary’s Square), a famous square in the city center of Munich. I was here for a lot of times already. This was taken during my visit last August 2010.

Munich is surrounded with fascinating landscapes. You might want to take a trekking trip at the Bavarian Alps. How about a visit to the famous fairy-tale castle of King Ludwig II of Bavaria, the Neuschwanstein Castle located in Schwangau. It is not so far from Munich.

Munich is simply one of my favorite cities in Germany.


The capital city of Baden-Württemberg, one of the 16 states of Germany is also well-worth to visit. I had been to this city last year and I love it. I had also witnessed the Cansttater Wasen, the second largest fun-fair in the world next to Oktoberfest in Munich. It was totally a very nice trip I had here last year.

Don’t miss to visit some of its famous sights; the New Palace and Old Palace, its Market Hall, Main Train Station, Schlossplatz or Castle Square, Domkirche St. Eberhard (St. Eberhard’s Cathedral Church) and so many more. If you love cars, you might also want to go inside the Mercedes-Benz and Porsche Museums. There are also beautiful gardens and parks in the area.


I find Germany’s capital and biggest city very interesting. It is a huge city and visiting it for a day or two to explore everything is not enough. My friends from Berlin told me that I need around a month to see most of Berlin. It is a world and international city that ranks along with Paris and London.

Brandenburg Gate, an iconic symbol not only in Berlin but in Germany as a whole. I took this image during my three-day visit last February 2011.

Some famous sights include, the Bundestag, Brandenburg Gate, Berlin Cathedral, Gendarmenmarkt and a lot more. I just can’t enumerate everything. Berlin can offer everything from shopping to night life, cinemas, restaurants, museums, galleries, churches and cathedrals-just name it and Berlin have it all.

There are still a lot of interesting and charming cities and towns to visit in Germany. Feel free to browse the categories in this site and you will find a lot more.
