Whether it is soaking in history and cultures at palaces or cathedrals or indulging in natural views and adventure activities, the country has something or the other for everybody. While physically travelling to Germany may not be on the cards for now, but a 360 degree virtual tour is equally enthralling. Here are 7 virtual tours that you can take across the country to satiate the traveller in you:
