Once upon a time… find fairytale palaces, castles, and more in germany

Explore a magical world of palatial homes and royal forts among more than 25,000 enchanting sites, from UNESCO World Heritage Sites to hidden gems



The German National Tourist Board (GNTB) is inviting travellers to embark on an enchanting journey through the country’s rich history and fairy tale landscapes this Eid al-Fitr. From royal palaces to charming castles, travellers can this summer immerse themselves in Germany’s awe-inspiring world, where medieval tales come alive.

With 25,000 enchanting sites, from UNESCO World Heritage Sites to hidden gems, Germany’s historic treasures offer both romantic getaways and legendary tours filled with pure magic. Whether it is the Baroque-style Moritzburg Castle constructed on its own artificial island near Dresden or Kriebstein Castle that looms ominously over the River Zschopau in Saxony; the Barockgarten Großsedlitz in Heidenau or Germany’s oldest “porcelain palace”, the Schloss Favorite Rastatt near Baden-Baden.

The wonderous sites promise unique experiences, from open-air concerts under starry skies to captivating exhibitions. Visitors can participate in the Hohenzollern Mountain Race, conquering 365 vertical metres to reach Hohenzollern Castle’s courtyard; explore the world’s first playing card museum to design their own cards at Altenburg Residential Castle; or experience music fusion at Spandau. Explorers can also discover other fascinating landmarks such as Sanssouci Palace, which is actually an ensemble of palaces and gardens; immerse themselves in culture at regular musical performances and events at Wartburg Castle; experience the annual theatrical tribute paid to William Shakespeare at Neuschwanstein Castle; and visit Heidelberg Castle, which hosts a series of unforgettable theatre, opera, and concert productions. Each of these landmarks highlight Germany’s rich history and architectural wonders.

Furthermore, Germany has been promoting its slogan, “Germany Simply Inspiring”, aimed at promoting sustainable travel and communicating the country’s positive image as a travel destination with a wide range of eco-conscious tourism experiences. The goal is to extend the length of visitors’ stays and create a more innovative, climate-friendly place to visit.

Yamina Sofo, Director at the Dubai-based German National Tourist Office (GNTO), said: “Germany’s royal palaces and castles provide a rare and unrivalled experience, where visitors can be transported to a world of captivating legends and timeless tales. The combination of history, beauty, and enchanting legends creates unforgettable memories for travellers seeking an inspiring and magical destination.”

Sofo continued: “‘Germany Simply Inspiring’ underlines our commitment to sustainable and innovative tourism, inspiring visitors to extend their stay with the country’s wide range of sustainable attractions. With its rich history, breath-taking landscapes, and captivating experiences amidst a perfect and agreeable weather for GCC visitors, Germany truly leaves visitors inspired.”
