Best places to see in Germany

St Lorenz Church
Monuments
A haven for medieval wood sculpture. Originally a Catholic church, St Lorenz and its art treasures survived the Reformation as well as WWII. Gaze upon the dainty deities of the “Angelic Salutation” limewood carving by Veit Stoss. Then survey the craftsmanship of Adam Kraft’s hefty tabernacle, propped up by a self-portrait sculpture of the artist himself.
Accommodations near St Lorenz Church
Viktualienmarkt
Landmarks
Butchers, bakers and candlestick makers – the gang’s all here! This market offers every shade of the earth’s palette. It’s also hugely popular with the foodie crowd given its impressive gourmet selection. Try award-winning pickled sausages, drift past stalls selling local breads and cheeses, or duck into the beer garden for a refreshing lager.
Accommodations near Viktualienmarkt
Frauenkirche
Monuments
Nuremberg was the unofficial capital of the Holy Roman Empire. In 1352, Emperor Charles IV commissioned this Gothic church. Amid the midday ding-dong of the glockenspiel, gaze up at the façade’s mechanical Männleinlaufen clock that depicts a gilded figurine of the emperor himself. Then, head inside and pour over the intricate gold-leafing of the glimmering Tucher Altarpiece.
Accommodations near Frauenkirche
Hofbräuhaus
Landmarks
The birthplace of the “beer garden”. Plan to stay for several hours, because this large food hall serves up barrels of fun. It’s the scene of rowdy tourists and dedicated patrons who mingle with dirndl-clad waitresses and dudes in lederhosen. If you’re in the mood, join in the chanting and toast to your health while the oompa band competes with the din.
Accommodations near Hofbräuhaus
Munich Glockenspiel
Landmarks
Essential or overrated, depending on your point of view, the Glockenspiel of Marienplatz Square is iconic Munich. Connected to the Town Hall, it’s about a five-minute display of life-size metal figures acting out traditional German fables. Stand enthralled by knights on horseback, twirling courtiers and the clang of bells once a day – along with virtually every visitor to the city.
Accommodations near Munich Glockenspiel
Arena Leipzig
Stadiums or Arenas
Bach, Wagner, Mendelssohn… Leipzig’s musical legacy is beyond reproach. This multi-purpose arena keeps the city’s melodic flame burning in the 21st century. It regularly fills to capacity with twelve-thousand hysterical pop and rock fans. Check listings for upcoming opportunities to head-bang to Rammstein, squeal at Justin Timberlake or shake your hips to Shakira.
