5 Summer trips you can not miss in Germany!

Updated: Jul 28

Here we have put together a collection of the 5 best activities you can enjoy this summer in Germany despite some restrictions still being in place for covid.

1. Weißer See, Berlin - Weißer See is a lake in the Weissensee district of Berlin, Germany. The Weichsel ice age shaped the lake and its surrounding landscape. It is embedded in the ground moraines of Niederbarnimer. During the melting of the ice, you will find this expansive lake just northeast of the city massive block of ice remained; when it subsequently thawed it created what is known as a kettle hole. This was the origin of today's Weisser See.

You will find this expansive lake just northeast of the city, complete with walking trails, boat rentals, and a swimming area.

2. Trier: Explore the oldest town in the country - Trier is a city on the banks of Germany. It lies in a valley between low vine-covered hills of red sandstone in the west of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate, near the border with Luxembourg and within the important Moselle wine region.

Trier once served as the key city of the Roman northern territories but was first founded by the Celts in the fourth century BCE. It was then conquered by the Romans around three hundred years later.

As the city center is quite small, most of the sites are within walking distance from each other, so the city is a great destination for a mini-traina weekend break without a car. There is also a mini-train called the Römer Express which takes visitors on a 35-minute tour of the old town.

3. Surf on the Eisbach in Munich - The Eisbach - wave, is a small, 2-kilometre-long (1.2 mi), man-made river in Munich. It flows through the park known as the Englischer Garten and is a side arm of the Isar River. A man-made wave has been created on one section, which is popular among river surfers. Located just at the entrance to the English Gardens, right in the center of the city, you will find the best city center location for river surfing.

4. Lake Constance (Bodensee) - The lake is situated where Germany, Switzerland, and Austria meet. Its shorelines lie in the German states of Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria, the Swiss cantons of St. Gallen, Thurgau, and Schaffhausen, and the Austrian state of Vorarlberg.

The lake is fed by the Rhine and sits at the foot of the Alps, providing some beautiful scenery. It is one of Germany’s most popular holiday destinations, particularly because of the range of activities on and around the lake.

You can explore the mountainous surroundings of the lake by hiking, mountain biking, or rock climbing and there are plenty of small villages around the lake to stay for a night or two, as well as larger cities such as Konstanz. If you are looking to get even closer to nature, there are many sites to pitch a tent close to the waterside.

5. Ostsee - The Ostsee is home to some of the most beautiful coastal scenery you can find. The German Baltic coast is three hundred and fifty kilometers long and boasts almost endless sandy beaches.

There are also more rugged rocky beaches, as well as areas set out for kitesurfing and other water sports. For those brave enough to engage with Germany’s love of nudity, there are also a number of FKK beaches along the coast.
