When in Germany Do As Germans Do
A glimpse of the country that has the World's first hydrogen fueled train
Germany is the land of ideas, art, technology, Volkswagen, and so much more. Every corner of this country has a historical context with an artistic touch. Apart from abundant castles, forests, architectural buildings, Deutschland has so much more to offer. Here’s a list of activities for you that you can engage in when you’re taking a break from long hours of sightseeing.
Must Do Activities in Germany
Ride the world’s first hydrogen powered train
Become a part of the history by riding on the recently launched world’s first hydrogen fueled train in Germany. The two bright blue Coradia iLint trains built by the French train maker Alstom operate on a 62 mile (100kms) track connecting Cuxhaven, Bremerhaven, Bremervoerde and Buxtehude in northern Germany.
Take a tour of Berlin on Segway
Soak up the history and beauty of the city by riding your own Segway. You can book your own Segway through Berlin Segway Tour along with a guide. The main attractions that the Segway tour covers are Berlin Wall, Brandenburg Gate, Marx and Engels Platz Palace of the Republic, Hitler’s bunker, Potsdamer Platz Gendarmenmarkt, Nazi Topography of Terror, Unter den Linden Checkpoint, Charlie Luftwaffe Ministry, Bebelplatz Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, Reichstag.
Savour the taste of impeccable German bread
German bread is simply amazing. There are so many varieties of breads available that after having bread in Germany it is highly possible that the breads from the other parts of the world might fail to meet your standard. So take your pick from countless types of breads- dark, white, sweet, savory, crunchy, soft, plain, or with all types of seeds or whatever your taste buds find tempting.
Ride on the waves of Eisbach
Experience the adrenalin rush by surfing the waves of Eisbach, a small channel of the Isar River in the central park in Munich. Or, you can just enjoy watching the other surfers take on the continuous, ice-cold waves of the river. (It is to be noted that inexperienced surfers should not surf the Eisbach as it can be very dangerous unlike the ocean waves.)
Relax and shop in Mauer Park
Mauer Park in Berlin is famous as a spot where people go to relax. However, it is also a throbbing and bustling flea market especially on Sundays. So lookout for bargains at this market with all kinds of stuff ranging from bicycles, clothes, food, souvenirs, records, pianos and furniture. And rest up when you’re tired of all the shopping.
