Visit UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites of Germany
Written by Valentina Romano
Along the lines of the previous “Visit UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites of…” even for this week The Golden Scope picked a country which presents numerous beautiful sites.
This week is, indeed, Germany’s turn.
Only for you, The Golden Scope selected the least popular sites to go visit when in Germany – and by “least popular” I don’t mean that they’re worse or uglier than the popular ones; but the sites mentioned below are simply not overcrowded with tourists!
In fact, those sites are not usually mentioned in guidebooks due to their remote locations, or even because they are not so popular, so they are automatically neglected.
UNESCO selected 39 places from Germany to put in its World Heritage List, with 3 natural and 36 historical. Amongst all the sites are: The Aachen Cathedral (first German site to be declared under UNESCO – 1978), Upper Middle Rhine Valley (2002), Messel Pit Fossil Site (1995), and many other equally charming sites.
When in Germany, you should definitely go visit as much UNESCO’s sites as you can, as they are all extremely beautiful and unique.
From the natural landscapes to medieval cathedrals, try to see if you can manage to visit some of the places listed below, as even if they are off-the-tourist-trail, they are all incredibly wonderful and they all deserve to be paid a visit!
