“This trip was amazing in every way. From the arrival to the departure, nothing was left out. Personalized attention and superb guides. Bottom line: Kensington Tours is definitely the best way to travel.”
A tour of Germany truly has something for everyone. Whether you're into architecture, history, local cuisine or the performing arts, there's no lack of appealing destinations. One aspect of Germany that gets less attention is its beautiful natural landscape, something that is at its best in Jasmund National Park.
Located in the northeast corner of the country, Jasmund is the smallest national park in Germany, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in natural beauty. In particular,Jasmund has become famous for its impressive chalk cliffs that rise hundreds of feet above the Baltic Sea below.
All of the park's chalk cliffs are sure to stand out, but there is one section that is particularly famous. If you want the perfect photo opportunity, head to the Königsstuhl. German for "king's chair," Königsstuhl, stands nearly 400 feet above the water but it is not the sheer height that makes it the most impressive. The bright white cliffs jut out from lush, green vegetation, creating a unique contrast you're unlikely to find elsewhere.
Jasmund National Park has more to offer than the chalk cliffs. Most notably, it is home to centuries-old beech forests, and with hiking trails and cycling routes it can be the perfect bit of adventure for your tour of Germany.
Look down in wonder at Buckingham Palace, the Palace of Westminster and St Paul’s Cathedral from your glass-walled pod on the London Eye, then gaze out over the Louvre and the Champs-Elysees from the top of the Eiffel Tower.
The scent of rich pine forests lingers in the breeze as the 13th-century ruins of Turaida Castle are revealed before your eyes in the lush Gauja River valley in a medieval sanctuary untouched by the march of time.
The aroma of dark roasted Viennese coffee hangs thick in the air as you tread the cobblestone laneways and bask in the elegant architecture, atmospheric cafes and refined restaurants in one of the most beautiful cities in Eastern Europe.
