Germany’s most popular attractions in 2015 are revealed. Europa-Park is Germany’s most popular tourist attraction for visitors from abroad in 2015, followed by Neuschwanstein Castle and Cologne Cathedral. Europa-Park and last year’s winner Neuschwanstein Castle switched places at the top of the rankings. Located in south-west Germany between Freiburg and Offenburg, Europa-Park is the biggest theme park in the German-speaking countries and one of the few that is open in winter.

The Top 100 most popular attractions in Germany are selected as a result of an online survey carried out by the German National Tourist Board (GNTB) between October 2014 and May 2015.

Petra Hedorfer, Chief Executive Officer of the GNTB, explained how the online votes were cast: “Travelers from more than 40 countries took part in the survey, and the results demonstrate how well our voting system works: eight of the ten most popular attractions from the previous year retained their top-ten ranking in 2015.”

Visitors to Germany cast their votes for famous monuments, historical towns, natural landscapes, sports venues and theme parks but also for traditional events and festivals. The top 100 are spread right across the country, from north to south and from west to east, demonstrating the rich diversity of the sights and attractions in Destination Germany.

The results of the internet survey are published online at and the GNTB’s Top 100 app is being updated accordingly. This mobile app tells you everything you need to know about Germany’s Top 100 sights with just a few swipes.

The top 20 attractions will receive signs to publicize their success in the survey.
