Western Europe is full of great countries to visit, but Germany is top of most people’s lists. Despite its own history, it is a very inviting country and always welcomes tourists with respect. It is also home to some rather unusual traditions and even stranger buildings…
10 – Dresden
Art with drains is not something you would normally go out of your way to see, but this one turns the rain into music!
9 – Reutlingen
It’s not for everyone, but if you like tight spaces you will love walking (or shuffling) down the world’s thinnest alleyway.
8 – Berlin
It might look like a space station, but once upon a time, this was a nightclub! Sadly it has not closed down and it maintained for street artists to decorate.
7 – Wannsee
Also known as “Peacock Island” this island is found on the River Havel and is home to this stunning two-towered white castle that is connected at the top by a medieval-styled bridge!
6 – Sankt Oswald-Riedlhütte
Featuring the world’s longest and tallest treetop walk, it is only for fittest of people to do. But you could always stay at the bottom and look up!
5 – Braunschweig
If you like your buildings colourful and wacky you will love the Rizzi House. It is named in honour of artist James Rizzi, who painted the house in this cartoon style way.
4 – Mecklenburg-Vorpommern
In a topsy-turvy world, a turvy-topsy house makes perfect sense! Even the things on the outside porch are upside down!
3 – Niedernhausen
This UFO style house is very 60’s in style. I could just imagine this house being used in old Sci-fi shows like Lost in Space.
2 – Darmstadt
The Waldspirale is a residential building whose name translates into ” forest spiral”!
1 – Wuppertal
One of only 2 sky trains in the world and this one is still used to ferry people about. It’s quick and there are lots of things to see along the way.
