Exquisite Art, Culture & Entertainment

Germany is the perfect location to enjoy culture with all your senses: Historical and modern sights and attractions as well as extravagant cultural, culinary and sports events enchant and excite visitors throughout the year.

Germany is a world leader in classical music. Follow the footsteps of Beethoven, Bach, Strauss, Wagner and numerous other notable composers. Listen to world famous choirs, such as the Regensburger Domspatzen or the St. Thomas Boys Choir in Leipzig. Get carried away by the music and feel the excitement of listening to a concert performed by some of the world's finest artists in a venue where it premiered centuries ago. Absorb the glamorous atmosphere at one of Germany's many historical opera houses and concert halls that are in themselves reminders of a glorious history - and a vibrant present.
Enjoy a wide range of the most renowned classical music performed by world-known orchestras, ensembles and soloists at the places of their origin, such as the annual Beethoven Festival in Bonn, the Richard Wagner Festival in Bayreuth, or the Bach Festival in Leipzig.

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. The 33 UNESCO World Heritage Sites are of such extraordinary value that they have been placed under the protection of international conventions.

Wherever you look, creative arts as a vital part of Germany's rich cultural life are celebrated with unique events, such as the international film festival Berlinale and the Fashion Week in Berlin where national and international celebrities walk the red carpet.

World-class sports events take place in Germany each year, bringing the world's top athletes together: The World Equestrian Festival CHIO in Aachen near Cologne, Formula 1 races, and the Sailing World Cup during the Kieler Woche held near Hamburg are only a few exclusive highlights to name.
