2,000 years of European cultural history have certainly left their mark on Germany. Nowhere else will you find as many unique sites of natural and cultural interest situated so closely together. 33 of them have been designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites of "extraordinary universal interest" and have been placed under the protection of international conventions.
A journey to a UNESCO World Heritage Site is a very special and unique journey into the past. From churches and abbeys, historical Old Towns, castles, palaces and gardens to industrial monuments, every one of Germany's World Heritage Sites is well worth a visit. Let yourself be captivated by the very places where history was made.
