Best places to see in Germany

Panometer Leipzig
Museums
They say that history is all around us. At this curious attraction, that saying really rings true. The Panometer is an old cylindrical gas silo, with a viewing platform in the middle. The curved inner wall is draped in one enormous, circular image, creating a giant 360-degree panorama of historical scenes, accompanied by sound and light effects. It’s a full-on immersion!
Accommodation near Panometer Leipzig
Porsche-Arena
Conference centres
Have you got a taste for the spectacular? Zoom down to the Porsche-Arena for dramatic thrills and eye-catching spills. This is Stuttgart’s prime arena for music and sports events. Nod your head to your favourite pop acts, gasp at mind-bending circus tricks and cheer on Germany’s top handball and ice hockey players. Check listings and snap up that front-row seat!
Accommodation near Porsche-Arena
Gewandhaus
Theatres
Serious business. This concert hall’s colossal pipe organ bears the inscription: “Res severa verum gaudium” – Latin for “true joy is a serious matter”. This seems particularly apt in an auditorium that was built to replace one consumed by fire-bombings in World War II. Saunter down to hear the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra in all their crisp-acoustic glory.
Accommodation near Gewandhaus
Weissenhof Colony Weissenhofsiedlung
Popular areas
One for architecture buffs. This cluster of buildings is a Bauhaus bonanza, built in 1927 as part of an international showcase of modern architecture. Big architectural names like Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe left their straight-edged, minimalist mark here. Head down with your camera and sketchpad and admire these classics of design. Bauhaus in da house!

Nuremberg Castle
Landmarks
A torrent of turrets. This sprawling castle complex dates back to the 11th century. Start in the Imperial Palace to dig into Nuremberg’s history as a “free city” of the Holy Roman Empire. Get your camera out for cutesy pics of little-and-large double act the Deep Well and Simwell Tower. Then clamber up the lofty Luginsland Watchtower to capture sweeping vistas of the Old Town.
Accommodation near Nuremberg Castle
Wilhelma Zoo and Botanical Garden
Attractions
Prattle with primates. This zoo’s superb ape section gives you the chance to come face-to-face with our not-so-distant cousins. Make friends with graceful gorillas and bouncy bonobos as they frolic in specially designed areas. If you’re more into flora than fauna, just wander round the bountiful botanical gardens and gaze upon pretty plant life.
