The 10 Most Beautiful historical sites in Germany

Uhrturm_
Historical Site · Nahe
Herrstein - Historischer Ortskern
The medieval village of Herrstein takes you to a charming idyll from the past. Your journey back in time will take you back 500 to 300 years - far away from today's everyday hustle and bustle.
Limburg mit Wald
Historical Site · Pfalz
Limburg monastery ruins
Driving out of Bad Dürkheim almost takes your breath away. Towering over everything, dominating the valley, are the ruins of the former Benedictine abbey. Did you know that the dates of the Sundays of Advent as we know them were set here? Did you know that the insignia of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation were kept here?
Wochenmarkt
Historical Site · Eifel
Düren
Die Stadt Düren ist nicht nur ein wunderbares Ausflugsziel, wenn Sie auf der Suche nach einer kulturellen oder sportlichen Veranstaltung sind, auch als Einkaufs- und Erholungsstandort hat sie sich einen Namen gemacht.
Winzerkeller
Historical Site · Rheinhessen
Ingelheimer Winzerkeller- Ingelheim wine cellar
Unser neues Prachtstück ist Preisträger des Great Wine Capitals - Best Of Wine Tourism-Award 2020 in der Kategorie Architektur, Parks und Gärten. Der Ingelheimer Winzerkeller ist das neue Herzstück für Weinerlebnis der Rotweinstadt. Offen und freundlich empfängt er seine Besucher in der lichtdurchfluteten Kelterhalle, die dank des angelegten Innengartens einer kleinen Wohlfühl-Oase gleicht.    
Alte Lahnbrücke mit Dom
Historical Site · Lahntal
Altstadt Wetzlar
The beginnings of the town of Wetzlar go back to the 8th century, although the town name is first documented in 1141. The old trade route from Frankfurt to Cologne and Antwerp, the Hohe Strasse, passed through what is now modern Wetzlar, fording the Lahn River where later, in the 13th century, a stone bridge was built. Numerous finds testify to settlements during the Carolingian period.
Säulen vor Pfälzerwald
Historical Site · Pfalz
Roman Weilberg Winery
The Romans knew where it was beautiful: in the middle of the sea of vines above the Ungstein district of Bad Dürkheim, a Roman villa with a pedal wine press was uncovered in 1981 as parts of the largest Roman manor complex in the Palatinate and partially restored. In fine weather, the view extends as far as the Black Forest. The Roman circular hiking trail passes by here.
Wehrgang Ober-Ingelheim
Historical Site · Rheinhessen
Fortification of the Burgkirche
Wilhelm Busch Land Wiedensahl, Wilhelm-Busch-Geburtshaus
Historical Site · Wiedensahl

Wilhelm Busch Land
Come with me to Wilhelm Busch Land! Wilhelm Busch Land offers an insight into the life and work of the draftsman, painter, poet and thinker in his home village of Wiedensahl.
Ballons - Haus Franzke
Historical Site · Nahe
Kirn - Historischer Stadtkern
Kirn's historic city centre has a lot to offer: whether as a break stop on a Nahe Cycle Route bicycle tour or as a starting/finishing point on the Soonwaldsteig, Rhine-Nahe Wine Trails or Hildegard of Bingen Pilgrim Trail, whether "Leben am Fluss" or the art gallery in the town hall.
Kaiser-Wilhelm-Brücke in Monschau
Historical Site · Eifel
Historic centre of Monschau
Immerse yourself in a magical world: surrounded by lovingly restored half-timbered houses, you can stroll through the historic old town of Monschau, always accompanied by the Rur. Shopping becomes a pleasure in the small, owner-managed shops. Delicious chocolates, traditional Monschauer Dütchen or mustard - the choice of culinary delicacies is wide. Guests are pampered in the hotels and inns. The Eifel town is an ideal starting point for discovering the Eifel on foot or by bike.
