UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Germany

If you are planning a trip to Germany, you should try to visit some of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. I’ve created a listing for you to compare and see which sites you might want to add to your German itinerary.

Germany has whole-heartedly embraced the concept UNESCO World Heritage by choosing to protect numerous places representing different aspects of their cultural history. Because the World Heritage Site list includes so much, architecture, industry, design, engineering, etc., it would be impossible to visit all of them in one vacation.

Germany has 44 World Heritage Sites, including 3 transboundary sites. There are 43 cultural sites and 1 natural site in Germany.
