Germany is an amazingly beautiful country with lots of diverse attractions and destinations that offers differing experiences to anyone who visits. This European nation is home to some of the most beautiful parks in the world, as well, which is something that travellers might be highly interested in. If so, it would definitely be to anyone’s benefit to learn about these parks if they’re going on something like Amsterdam Holiday.
Now, for those who don’t know, it’s worth noting that parks and national parks are not the same thing. Both are open to tourists, though, there might be some restrictions. However, regardless of which you prefer, you’re definitely getting something worthwhile when you visit them.
German parks like egapark in Erfurt or the Mainau Island near Stuttgart are absolutely beautiful places that will take your breath away. Even though a lot of what makes them beautiful have been manipulated by humans, this doesn’t take anything away from their grandeur. If you are more interested in gorgeous vistas that also provide a window into history and natural calmness, you’ll definitely want to make time for such destinations.
These parks are rather close to most tourist destinations, as well, so it’s not really as if you’ll be going out of your way to actually visit them. Just think of it as an amazing bonus to an already incredible trip.
German National Parks
In contrast to German parks, German national parks are natural environments that have are under the protection of the government for conservation. Many of these parks either represent significant culture or historical value, or they contain delicate ecosystems that should not be tampered with carelessly. As a result, the beauty of such national parks are often undisturbed and raw.
Among the most beautiful of such parks are Saxon Switzerland National Park and Jasmund National Park, although you can be rest assured that there are plenty more of those. To see the majesty of such locations, especially if you’re not used to sights of natural, untamed wonders because you spend most of your time in the cities is simply breath-taking.
Which To Visit
Now that you know which is which, you might be wondering which ones you should visit when you actually go to Germany and the answer to that is it depends on what you set out to do. Some of these parks can be so far out of the way from each other that you would need to intentionally structure your trip to accommodate visiting all of them.
As such, if you’re going to Germany for a vacation to see the sights and sounds of the country, simply going to any of the bigger parks near you might be the best you can do. If you’re up for a little nature hopping, however, going for the national parks might be a really good idea.
When To Visit
Finally, if you’re going to visit Germany with the expressed intention of going to these parks, traveling during winter is obviously going to be a bad idea. Summer is always your best bet and so is spring. You might want to add them to your list of Amsterdam Top Sightseeing spots.
