Germany: My ‘Things I Want to Do’ Checklist

In a week I am flying off to Germany and the reality of that still hasn’t hit me!

Here is a rather random checklist of things I want to see and do over there. Please excuse the very stereotypical tourist-y stuff (but hey, you’ve got to do all that stuff at least once!) I will update this with new things and cross things off as I do them!


Things I want to eat/drink…

  • Spaghettieis
  • Raclette
  • Bretzeln
  • Baumkuchen
  • Currywurst
  • Spargel
  • Glüwein

Places I want to visit…

  • Hamburg Miniature Town
  • Berlin Wall
  • Berlin Tiergarten
  • Reichstag
  • Berlin Holocaust Memorial
  • Charlottenburg
  • Cologne Cathedral
  • Munich Beer Garden
  • Neuschwanstein Castle
  • Heidelberg Castle
  • Any other castle!
  • Lüneburg

Events I want to go to…

  • Oktoberfest
  • Weinachtsmärkte


Obviously I don’t know much about Germany yet besides the famous landmarks, so any local insight of must-do suggestions are very welcome!
