This allows travellers to embrace Germany’s ‘Stay a Little Bit Longer’ initiative and explore many of the country’s regions and make the most of the abundance of diverse experiences each has to offer.

Travellers can also make the most of GNTB’s interactive map (, which allows them to immerse in the full splendour of Germany. The tool enables visitors to seamlessly organise and blend their exploration of any of the 51 UNESCO World Heritage Sites with exciting city excursions and breath-taking natural landscapes, unveiling a remarkable culture that has been meticulously preserved across hundreds of generations.

“We are thrilled to promote our latest campaign, 51 UNESCO World Heritage Sites – Historic.Modern.Germany, and invite GCC travellers to embark on a remarkable journey through the country’s wealth of cultural and historical treasures,” said Yamina Sofo, Director at the Dubai-based German National Tourist Office (GNTO). “With a harmonious blend of rich heritage and contemporary allure, Germany offers an extraordinary tapestry of experiences, from majestic castles to beautiful landscapes, and serves as a perfect summer destination.”
