How to See the Whole of Germany in a Week

We live in a time when the world feels smaller than ever, thanks to social media, which allows news to spread at unprecedented rates. However, as the world becomes smaller, the output demanded by our labour force is also staggeringly high. With less free time, yet people wanting to see more of the world, there must be a way to take advantage of more efficient technology to visit an entire country, such as Germany, in a single week. Unless you want to spend your valuable time crammed in a car, wishing for time to pass as your travel from highlight to highlight, you should definitely maximise on a private jet charter! This way not even the family pet needs to be left behind! 

How to See the Whole of Germany in a Week

Day 1: Munich  

Once you arrive in Munich, you’ll have a fantastic opportunity to learn more about the rich culture of the country's heart. You can start your trip by taking a short walk to the town centre and signing up for a free walking tour! You will see everything from beautiful architecture, to museums rich in history and art culture on this tour.  

Day 2: Neuschwanstein Castle  

Walking into Neuschwanstein Castle, also known as the castle that inspired Sleeping Beauty, is like walking into a fairy-tale. Neuschwanstein is a great place to visit for a day trip from Munich, as it is only a 1-hour drive away from Memmingen Airport, where your private jet can comfortably land. A further three to four-hour drive will take you to the hilltop Heidelberg castle. With runes dating back to the 16th century and the world's largest wine barrel, this site will be one to remember.

Day 3: The Romantic Road, Rothenburg ob der Tauber  

What some might think of as coming straight off of a page from the Wizard of Oz, this romantic road, while not yellow, has beautiful views of the alps and castles sporadically placed all along the journey. After just over an hour trip from Suttart airport one will inevitably land up in the small town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber, which translates to "the red fortress above the Tauber River". This medieval town was once known for its red roofs, and the name has stuck ever since.  

Day 4: The Black Forest   

The black forest can be an adventure in and of itself, with countless things to do, such as exploring deep into the black forest, the birthplace of Hansel & Gretel. You can enjoy Steinwasen theme park, or if you are keen for an even bigger thrill, Europa Park, with is Europe's second-biggest theme park. There is Triberg Waterfall, which is the highest waterfall in Germany with gorgeous views. Or, if you are more into the historical sites, there is lake Constance or Rhine Valley, both UNESCO world heritage sites.   

Day 5: Dresden  

Dresden is a place that is dripping with history, the primary site being Dresden Fraenkische church. Being built in the 11th century in a Romanesque style, this place was later torn down and rebuilt in the 18th century as a larger Baroque styled version. Yet, the church was decimated during the bombing of Dresden in World War 2. The church runes remained preserved as a war memorial till 2005. With a rich history and a store of redemption, Dresden is a great place to visit on day 5 of your trip.  

Day 6: Hamburg  

Similar to the Black Forest, Hamburg has a lot of interesting things going on that you can enjoy. Everything from its own Willy Wonka chocolate factory called, Chocoversum to an ironically named Miniature Wunderland, the largest of its kind in the world. Hamburg is sure to have something for everyone.  With its own airport for private jets, it’s a perfect place to start.

Day 7: Berlin  

Berlin is jam-packed with things to do! If you are into the country's history, you can explore countless museums and historical sites such as the Berlin Wall, the holocaust memorial, or Brandenburg gate. However, if you are more about relaxing, you can head to Berlin TV Tower to enjoy fantastic sundowners with amazing views, or Tiergarten to witness Germany's most extensive garden.   

 After your fantastic tour across the county, you can head down to Berlin airport to catch your flight out of the country and go on to your next adventure. All the while having a smug look on your face, because you didn't let the limited amount of time you get off prevent you from traveling across countries just as you dreamed of as a kid.
