Exploring Germany’s Most Beautiful Towns
They don’t make towns like this anymore.
Germany’s best towns are a wealth of history, in a way that the most picturesque U.S. towns can’t quite hold a candle to. There’s a certain stature that comes with towns whose roots predate the defeat of the Spanish Armada or the painting of the Mona Lisa. The majority of these German towns harken back to the 12th century and while they may be smaller-scale now, in the days long before Berlin became the most populous city, they were bustling cities serving as major ports, trading hubs, and fortified cities armed to defend. These are the most beautiful and historic towns in Germany.
