There isn’t much to say about Castle Neuschwanstein because it is never going to be enough. Commissioned by King Ludwig II, Neuschwanstein is popularly known as the Disney Castle. Visited by thousands of tourists every day, this is one thing you shouldn’t miss out on when in Germany, despite the number of people flocking it. Put on those running shoes, get the camera ready; and you will be on your way to experience a magical yet historical wonderland in the heart of Europe.6.

Right by Brandenburg gate is the Reichstag building, which is the legislative centre of Berlin. The dome on the roof of the Reichstag is a massive tourist attraction for a spectacular panorama of Berlin Mitte.Visit the local markets

A 1.3 km riverside stretch of what used to be the Berlin Wall, is now called the East-side Gallery. A spectacular community art project, the wall is now a canvas for local and international artists, and also an awesome space for commissioned exhibitions.

One of Berlin's biggest tourist traps is worth a visit, if only to observe the slightly absurd, but entirely self-aware spectacle of watching tourists pose for pictures with men dressed in military costumes. What used to be a US Army Checkpoint to control movement of people between East and West Berlin, is today a monument to the Cold War, appropriately flanked by a glittering McDonalds in the background.

This venerable university town is incomplete without its castle. Perched on the slopes of Mount Königstuhl above river Neckar, be ready to be overwhelmed at Heidelberg Castle.From gothic to renaissance, the castle is a mix of styles and history, and if history stirs you, it’s worth joining a guided tour. The courtyard outside holds the Heidelberg Castle Festival in the summer with some astonishing performances.

The Dachau concentration camp was the first and longest running concentration camp in Nazi Germany. Today, the place stands as a memorial to the lives lived and lost here during the 12 years of this camp's operations (1933 to 1945).

A few minutes walk from the hbf will take you city's oldest gate, Martin's gate. Apparently, it is there since the 13th century. However, a distasteful McDonald sits on the right, the view of this avenue is utter pleasure. Colors packed in so well in such a tiny space.

The Victory Column is a monument in Berlin, Germany. Designed by Heinrich Strack. It is one of the best symbols of Berlin. It is known as "Golden Lizzie" in Berlin slang. The reason for its being built was Prussia’s victory in the German-Danish war in 1864. The 8.3 metre high bronze sculpture weighing 35 tonnes, which was created by Friedrich Drake, represents Victoria wearing a helmet and holding a laurel wreath in one hand and, in the other, a staff bearing an iron cross. The victory goddess Victoria from Roman mythology is analogous to the Greek equivalent of Nike. Her eagle helmet also lets Victoria appear as Borussia, the female personification of Prussia. The 285 steps of the spiral staircase inside the Victory Column don't lead to the spindle and a hundred years of slumber, you will however need to be rather determined and fit to climb the tapering staircase. The base is decorated with large bronze reliefs that depict scenes from the wars. The colonnade above the base is decorated with a mosaic frieze created by Anton von Werner. It depicts the Liberation Wars and subsequent unification of Germany in 1871. The statue represents the Goddess of Victory, but Berliners affectionately call her Goldelse.
