Whether your style is more laidback, exploring museums or you like to be on the go, here are 6 tours that can be undertaken while in Germany:
Photo Tour in Hanover
The state capital of Lower Saxony, Hanover has a lot to offer to travellers. Whether it is the Herrenhäuser Gardens impressively exemplifying European garden art or Maschsee, a popular local recreation area and the venue of the Maschsee festival, Hanover interests all age groups alike. A photo tour through the capital city also includes taking up an arched elevator up the dome in the New Town Hall and enjoying sprawling views from there. Apart from that do not miss out on Leineschloss Palace, Hannover Adventure Zoo, the Nanas, the Göttingen Seven and the Schiller Monument as a part of your photo tour.
Light Tour of Braunschweig
The medieval city of Braunschweig is an art lover’s delight. With its deep rooted history and culture, statement art pieces across the city make it a top choice amongst those who appreciate art. Here, international artists await travellers to showcase their work—combining their art with light elements. The city also spots diverse cultures, renowned museums, theatre and concert performances along with art exhibitions.
City Tour Angermünde
The old town of Angermünde is a delight to be cherished in person. With each nook and cranny preserving history in Angermünde, the most striking attractions here include the imposing Franciscan Monastery church, half-timbered houses and the historic town hall. Apart from that travellers can also look forward to the Grumsin beech forest—a part of Unesco World Natural Heritage Site or cherish the sound of Wagner organ in the St. Mary’s Church. For an offbeat experience, head to NABU Nature Experience Centre at Blumberger Mühle and discover the swamp turtles.

This vibrant quarter is home to small and colourful houses and pearl-lined shops along narrow alleys that can be touched with outstretched arms. A particularly favourite amongst tourists, Schnoor lies in the flourishing part of Brmenen and is the place to be if you’re looking for a cosy cafe or local handicrafts.
