Top 3 of Tourist Favorites More than 14,000 foreign visitors to the German National Tourist Board’s (GNTO) online portal, www.germany.travel, voted for their favorite tourist destinations in Germany between January and July 31, 2021. Last year’s winner Miniatur Wunderland Hamburg received the most votes for the fourth time in a row. Europa-Park Rust took second place and Neuschwanstein Castle took third place, confirming their rankings from the previous year. Other notable attractions include: Phantasialand Brühl, Rothenburg ob der Tauber, the Romantic Road, historic Dresden, Berlin, the Black Forest National Park, and the Rothenburg Crime Museum.
Petra Hedorfer, CEO of the GNTB’s Executive Board, said: “The great interest shown by survey participants confirms the appeal and resilience of the Destination Germany brand and its tourism participants, even in times of crisis. The customers vote gives us an authentic picture of the tourist destinations that are particularly popular and in demand. For Germany’s tourism partners, the ranking serves as a seal of quality that they use in their international marketing.”
