Germany promotes sustainable tourism practices. From eco-lodges and green hotels to eco-tours and responsible travel initiatives, sustainable tourism options are readily available. This approach ensures that all types of travelers can experience Germany’s rich cultural heritage and nature while supporting local communities and protecting the environment.

The diverse culture provides the travelers with the chance to indulge with distinct traditions, festivals, and cuisine that vary across its vibrant cities and picturesque landscape. In addition, Germany boasts an impressive collection of 51 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, showcasing its rich history, architectural marvels, and stunning natural landscapes.

Nature plays a significant role in German culture, as evident in the country’s numerous outdoor activities and appreciation for green spaces. Travelers get to enjoy hiking, cycling, and nature exploration. This love for nature is reflected in the careful preservation of forests, parks, and gardens throughout the country.

Yamina Sofo, Director at the German National Tourist Office (GNTO GCC), said: “For the fourth consecutive year, Wego and the German National Tourist Office continue their successful partnership to promote Germany as an essential destination. With visitors making more than a million searches for Germany on Wego’s platform, we are thrilled to highlight the country’s sustainable tourism, mesmerising nature, and cultural treasures. Our goal is to inspire travellers to discover Germany’s lively cities, embrace its unique traditions, and immerse themselves in breathtaking landscapes.
