Bremen boasts a wealth of historical buildings from the Weser Renaissance period. The Roland statue and the town hall have earned UNESCO World Heritage Site status.

The Kunsthalle, the Gerhard Marcks House with its sculpture collection, the Bremen Theater, and the houses of Old Bremen, adorned with classical and art nouveau facades, make this district a visual delight. Artisan studios, boutiques, and shops offer wonderful exploration opportunities. Bremen boasts over 300 iconic cafes, bistros, bars, pubs, and restaurants, making it a diverse food haven.

Classical Music Extravaganza in a Historic Setting


Dresden’s rich historical backdrop comes alive with music for four weeks in May and June during the Dresden Music Festival, one of Europe’s largest classical music festivals. Orchestral concerts, chamber music performances, and renowned soloists grace the first-class program each year. The festival also features a diverse range of music, including old, new, world music, jazz, and dance. Dresden’s tradition as a hub for grand operas and ballets dates back to the Saxon court. With over 35 theaters, 50 museums, and home to renowned choirs and orchestras, Dresden is a world-class cultural city.

Grand Opera on Erfurt’s Cathedral Hill

Every year, during the Festival of the Cathedral Stairs, Erfurt’s old town transforms into an expansive open-air stage. Operas and musicals take center stage on the 70 steps of Cerro Catedral. The overture begins in front of the cathedral and the Severi church, setting the stage for an extraordinary evening. Performances in this historic setting have featured classics like Bizet’s Carmen, Puccini’s Tosca, and Verdi’s The Troubadour, as well as Umberto Eco’s The Name of the Rose, which premiered here as a musical. The cathedral hill, with its two ancient churches, harks back to the early Middle Ages and forms the heart of Thuringia’s state capital.


Hamburg’s Vibrant Weekly Market

Nestled north of Hamburg, on the shores of Aussenalster Lake, Eppendorf is renowned for its art nouveau architecture, upscale shops, canals, and parks. The Isemarkt here is an iconic institution for food enthusiasts and connoisseurs. Every Tuesday and Friday, around 200 vendors assemble, offering flowers, fruits, herbs, vegetables, fresh fish, delectable cheeses, teas, and gourmet treats. You can shop for local and exotic delicacies, engage in friendly chats with vendors, or simply savor a coffee amidst the bustling atmosphere. Occasionally, Hamburg’s poets grace the market with live performances, creating a unique style that sets Isemarkt apart among the city’s 100 markets.

Tegel Artpark: Berlin’s Outdoor Art Gallery


Berlin is renowned as a mecca for urban art, and street art is an integral part of the city’s identity. The art at Berlin’s Tegel Artpark is especially famous, with some murals reaching heights of up to 42 meters on skyscraper facades. These colossal artworks form a unique collection of outdoor street art. Tegel Artpark’s murals are created by renowned artists and street art stars, including Berlin’s pop art legend Jim Avignon and Australian artist Fintan Magee. The first mural was painted in 2015, and today, eight massive artworks adorn the walls of high-rise buildings near Lake Tegel. Some have already been repainted, making a visit to Artpark a continually rewarding experience. Don’t forget to explore the famous East Side Gallery, a permanent outdoor exhibition on the longest remaining stretch of the Berlin Wall. Berlin’s street art map guides you to eighteen other locations with iconic murals, including the Artpark.
