“Like a frozen wave”
And about third place, the Hamburg Elbphilharmonie, which has been an irresistible visitor magnet since 2017, it says: “This glass work of art, which swings like a frozen wave into the sky above the Hamburg harbor, is no longer from the skyline of the Hanseatic city to be imagined. ” It is also noted, however, that “for a long time it looked as if the Elbphilharmonie project would end in disaster: ten instead of three years of construction and a tenfold increase in construction costs”. But now it is fantastic to look at.
The Wadden Sea (“A trio of national parks protects this water landscape, which together with the Dutch part covers almost 12,000 square kilometers and is unique in this size worldwide”) ranks fourth among the ultimate destinations for Germany, and the Klimahaus Bremerhaven exhibition building (” It makes it possible to experience how diverse the habitats on our planet are “).
Behind it are the picturesque Eltz Castle (Rhineland-Palatinate), Germany’s highest peak, the Zugspitze near Garmisch-Partenkirchen (Bavaria), the Berlin Museum Island, the Elbe Sandstone Mountains in Saxony and the pretty Quedlinburg in Saxony-Anhalt.
On almost 300 pages, 240 more sights follow in the book, including of course Neuschwanstein Castle, Baden-Baden, Potsdam, Weimar, Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Lutherstadt Wittenberg, Aachen, Cologne and Naumburg Cathedral, Ulm Minster, Bauhaus Dessau, the chalk cliffs of Rügen, Heligoland, the Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt and the tropical amusement park Tropical Islands.
