DESTINATION GERMANY

Culture & nature TOURISM HIGHLIGHTS OF DESTINATION GERMANY Germany is a destination of many facets and is particularly popular with international travellers in search of culture. People come from all over the world to enjoy the wealth of culture on offer in Berlin, Munich, Hamburg, Cologne and Germany’s many other cosmopolitan cities. Each one has retained its own unique character: Hamburg scores highly for its seafaring charm, Düsseldorf for its exclusive fashion, Leipzig for its vibrant musical heritage. Internationally acclaimed museums – from the Pergamon in Berlin to the Pinakothek in Munich – regularly mount outstanding exhibitions that make the world sit up and take notice. Germany also leads the way when it comes to music: the country is home to more than 100 classical concert halls. Fans of more

modern sounds will love the wide choice of festivals. The quintessential German gemütlichkeit is best experienced in the smaller historical towns. Beautifully preserved old quarters such as in Bamberg and Lübeck, romantic destinations such as Würzburg with its Residenz Palace, Potsdam with its palaces and parks and Trier with its Roman monuments all now enjoy UNESCO World Heritage status – and prove that history in Germany is anything but dry and dusty. There are modern boutiques set in medieval houses, cafés for whiling away the hours and narrow winding lanes for leisurely strolls. Nature lovers can look forward to more than 14 national parks in Germany. Long-distance

cycle routes and walking trails enable active holidaymakers to tour beautiful unspoilt landscapes and offer an incomparable way to experience nature’s rich bounty. German cuisine is all about variety and quality. There is something for all tastes and budgets, from traditional inns serving hearty fare to more than 200 Michelin-starred restaurants. A glass of wine from one of the 13 winegrowing regions? That’s the way to round off a memorable day in Germany! Germany is easy to get to as well: more than 100 international airlines fly to Germany, which has the most extensive network of airports anywhere in the world. The route network of Star Alliance links Germany with a total of 795 destinations around the globe.

Germany interactive TRAVELLERS FROM AROUND THE WORLD RANK THEIR FAVOURITE TOURIST DESTINATIONS Top 100 is the name of a mobile app from the German National Tourist Board (GNTB) which visitors can use to discover – and vote on – Germany’s top 100 sights. In 2012 the GNTB began conducting an annual survey among travellers in Destination Germany to find out what they considered to be their personal highlights. Tourist attractions in all 16 federal states are

included in the current Top 100. Overall, survey respondents have selected a wide spectrum of cultural and natural highlights throughout Germany. But that is not all the Top 100 has to offer. The mobile app for Android and iOS devices enables travellers to use their mobile devices to call up a wealth of information in English

or German about the places they visit – and to interact with their friends quickly and easily via Facebook. In addition, users receive up-to-the-minute news about Destination Germany and can get money off at various sights thanks to the mobile discount vouchers. By launching the app, the GNTB is stepping up its interaction with visitors to Germany and raising the country’s profile as a travel destination around the world.

New application featured on all GNTB Facebook pages

To accompany the app, the rankings of the tourist sights are shown on all of the GNTB’s Facebook pages in real time. The sights are listed in descending order and are continuously updated as people check in to them on Facebook Places. Users can also post comments or recommendations, and Facebook makes it quick and easy to share the app content with friends.

Strong global demand

TOP 100 SIGHTS

The new interactive tool is proving popular, with around 3,000 downloads of the Top 100 app in the first week after its launch. Most of the users outside Germany were located in China, followed by the United States and Japan in second place. The app also appeared in the App Store’s ‘New & Noteworthy’ list, which features the latest and most interesting apps as selected by editors at Apple.

Calling all romantics: Heidelberg Castle voted the top sight in 2012

Download the app at www.germany.travel

With its history, architecture and unique location overlooking the city, Heidelberg Castle is one of the most famous historical monuments in the world. The ruins rise majestically on the site of a medieval castle complex high above the narrow lanes and picturesque jumble of roofs of the old town, like a scene from the pages of a storybook. For five centuries, the castle was home to the Palatinate electors of the Wittelsbach dynasty. The castle has many tales to tell, some of which you can hear on a guided tour available in seven different languages. www.germany.travel/staedte-kultur/top-100

The official GNTB website contains a page dedicated to the sights in the ranking and makes the app available as a free download: www.germany.travel/top100

THEME YEARS

From youth travel to Richard Wagner GERMANY FOR ALL TYPES OF VISITOR Families, single travellers, active seniors, groups, people on their honeymoons and people with disabilities: Germany has a holiday for all types of traveller, whether they’re looking for something relaxing, stimulating or action-packed. Every year, in an effort to inspire more people to visit Germany, the German National Tourist Board (GNTB) promotes new themes that reach out to a wide variety of target groups. The theme for 2013 of ‘HotSpots in Destination Germany’ shifts the marketing focus to young travellers. To help launch the campaign, the GNTB conducted a survey of young people to find out their favourite hang-outs in Germany. The findings showed that Germany’s cities are extremely popular with the youth demographic. In the categories of nightlife, must-sees, shopping, cafés & bars and festivals & events, young people up and down the country named their top HotSpots, which were then featured on an interactive map. Now, people are going online to suggest their own HotSpots for the map, with more and more being added every day. The campaign is compatible with all major social media platforms, meaning that visitors can access the map when they’re on the go, checking out new

HotSpots, commenting on existing ones and entering their own. During their trip, a dedicated GNTB app for tracking down places offering free Wi-Fi in Germany helps them to stay in touch with their friends. www.germany.travel/youth The GNTB, in addition to its annual themes, promotes individual anniversaries and one-off major events as a means of offering further motivation for people to travel to Germany. In 2013, for example, Germany is celebrating the bicentenary of Richard Wagner’s birth with a whole host of events at historical locations: Wagner cities, from his birthplace in Leipzig to the festival town of Bayreuth, are tracing the life of the exceptionally talented yet controversial composer with concerts, exhibitions and plays. The GNTB is featuring these towns and cities, the anniversary events and background information on Wagner at www.germany.travel/wagner. Other marketing focuses for 2013 include 200 years of the Brothers Grimm fairytales and the 150th birthday of Henry van de Velde, founder of the Grand Ducal School of Arts and Crafts in Weimar.

Theme for 2014: UNESCO World Heritage – the greatest legacies of mankind and Mother Nature Germany’s World Heritage includes important churches, abbeys and palaces, parks, historic town ensembles, industrial monuments and entire natural landscapes. The 37 UNESCO-listed sites in Germany are popular destinations for cultural tours and leisure breaks alike. Nature lovers visit the UNESCO World Heritage Wadden Sea on the North Sea coast for its 10,000 square kilometres of mudflats. The ebb and flow of the tides make this a fascinating landscape. Long walks are a fantastic way to experience the great outdoors here, whether ‘on the seabed’, through flowering salt marshes along the dikes, on the islands and Hallig islets or across the white sandy beaches and dunes. Besides the Historic Highlights of Germany, another place where the past

comes to life are the Prehistoric Pile Dwellings in southern Germany, while visitors to Wittenberg and Eisleben can follow in the footsteps of the church reformer Martin Luther. Exhibitions and museums at the Bauhaus sites in Dessau and Weimar recall the inception of the Bauhaus movement, which revolutionised art throughout the western world in the early 20th century. Together the 37 World Heritage sites form an important element of cultural tourism in Germany, which attracts visitors from all over the world. The GNTB is promoting these historic sites as part of its theme for 2014. It is integrating the vast potential of the ‘UNESCO World Heritage’ brand into its international marketing strategy with the aim of strengthening Germany’s already excellent image as a destination for cultural travel. www.germany.travel/unesco

THEME YEARS

25 years since the peaceful revolution in Leipzig The 2014 key theme ‘25 years since the peaceful revolution in Leipzig’ commemorates the civic protests that began with the Monday demonstrations in Leipzig, which ultimately led to the fall of the Berlin Wall and to German reunification. Leipzig is marking these events with a series of exhibitions and events. Another key theme, the ‘600th anniversary of the Council of Constance’, presents a fascinating aspect not only of church history but also of history as a whole. The Council had convened to end the papal schism that afflicted the Christian world in the 15th century. A major regional exhibition will shed light on the Council and how it affected day-to-day life in Constance.

25 years of German unity

Scenic routes in Germany

The GNTB’s global marketing will focus on German unity in 2015. Reunification following a peaceful revolution was Germany’s contribution to the collapse of the Iron Curtain, permanently changing the map of Europe and marking a turning point in global history. The rest of the world is keeping a close eye on the integration of the two once separate states with their different political and economic systems.

More than 150 scenic routes criss-cross Germany, each focusing on a different aspect of the country’s regions. Combining sightseeing with the pleasures of the open road, they are an ideal way of exploring Germany by car, motorbike or bicycle. The GNTB will feature these popular routes in its marketing in 2015. www.germany.travel/ferienstrassen

As part of its theme year, the GNTB is training the spotlight on the impact of reunification on tourism. New attractions have emerged and much effort has gone into restoring old ones. Reunified Germany offers endless places of interest to discover, including the reconstructed Church of Our Lady in Dresden, the palaces and parks of Potsdam and the modern tourism infrastructure of the Baltic beaches in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.

500th anniversary of the birth of Lucas Cranach the Younger In 2015 aficionados of art and culture can look forward to events marking the 500th anniversary of the birth of Renaissance painter Lucas Cranach the Younger.
