UNESCO World Heritage Sites

Pillnitz Palace in Dresden
2,000 years of European cultural history have certainly left their mark on Germany: Nowhere else will you find as many unique sites of natural and cultural interest situated so closely together as in Germany. 33 of them have been designated as UNESCO World Heritage sites. Germany's world heritage sites are of such "extraordinary universal interest", in fact, that they have been placed under the protection of international conventions.
