Historic Germany

Routes, museums, entities and regions that showcase the Ages of Germany. From pre-history, its time as part of the Roman Empire, the Medieval Era and up to and including contemporary history.

Chocolate Museum in Cologne, Germany star
Cologne´s Imhoff-Schokoladenmuseum, the world´s largest and most comprehensive chocolate museum. A futuristic building, designed as a boat moored alongside the River Rhine, it is an inter-active museum where you can visit a mini sub-tropical forest with cocoa plants, learn about chocolate history, and watch as a chocolate bar begins life as cocoa beans and ends up ground, processed, molded and wrapped in silver foil.

Cologne Cathedral - Story of a Gothic Masterpiece star
It took over 600 years to complete Cologne Cathedral. Construction began when the city was part of the Holy Roman Empire but didn't finish until 1880; in a newly United Germany with Wilhelm I as its first Emperor. A stunning building it is one of the country's most important monuments.

Germany's Prehistoric Solar Observatory star
Solstice was an important seasonal midpoint celebration for the pre-history agricultural civilization that 7,000 years ago created Germany's Goseck Circle. It pre-dates Stonehenge by at least two millennia and is probably the world's oldest solar observatory.

Germany's Romantic Road star
It's a spectacular journey, through stunning scenery filled with contrasts and historic medieval towns, into a world from the past. Germany’s Romantische Strasse, Romantic Road, a theme route showcasing southern German culture from food and wine to art and architecture. And of course history.

Germany's Ruhr Valley - The Ruhr Metropolis star
Germany's rejuvenated Ruhr Valley has an industrial history reaching back 750 years, and the revitalized metropolis of 53 towns and cities has also been a "European Capital of Culture". A tribute honoring the way the entire region emphasizes European cultures, and links connecting them.

The Dutch Quarter, Potsdam, Germany star
Just outside Germany's capital Berlin, and far away from the Netherlands-German border, there is a 'Dutch Quarter'. Since the 18th Century a settlement of 134 simple Dutch styled homes, built for artisans from Holland, has been set amongst the opulent palaces and parks of Potsdam.
