Remember when Tannhaus said, “There are things out there that our little minds will never comprehend,” in the Dark series?
Yeah, thinking of these budget-friendly aspects in visiting Germany, I feel like he said it to imply this!
We all knew that Baran set the series in the fictional German town of Windenm. But what we did not realize was that exploring such exotic parts of Germany costs nothing literally!
You heard me right. Germany is widely known as one of Europe’s most diverse countries that is comparatively the cheapest to visit!
Now, this may be great news for all of you ardent travellers looking forward to traveling Germany on a budget. So, get your note-taking started! And, stay with me throughout the article to know how to make your holidays in Germany completely wallet-friendly (and memorable!)
If you are ready, then let’s start by,
Booking the Cheapest Flight!
Because sometimes it’s not about making the right choice.
It’s about making a choice, then making it right!
I’m saying so because it is excellent you have chosen to visit Germany. But how do you make it right?
First, look out for the off-season in Germany that usually runs from November-March. Why? Because, in this season, travel is mostly cheap and budget-friendly! Then, make sure you choose the right airlines from Travel Center and book your flight earlier. Remember, the earlier you book, the cheaper the flight.
Okay, now you have booked your flight. What’s the next best thing to do? Be concerned about how you’ll travel around Germany!
For this, you’ll need to read about the next important aspect;
Cheap means of Transportation
You may ask if finding affordable means of transportation in a country like Germany is that easy. It’s a fair question.
But hey, how else do you think little Liesel found her ways through Germany in The Book Thief?
Trains and public buses in Germany are widely available. Hence, it is efficient if you are traveling on a budget and want to save some of those extra Euros. The schones-wochenende-ticket especially allows you (and maybe your friends) to travel the whole weekend for only 35 Euro!! Awesome, I know.
But if you are someone who loves your little space of privacy, then public transportation is not for you! So you should,
Rent a car!
Renting a car is more comfortable than taking public transportation! You know why? Because you can do this even before you land in Germany. How? By merely talking to one of our travel agents at Travel Center UK! They will help you reserve your rental car online. Easy like that.
Now, if you are someone who enjoys solitude that much (like I do), then the accurate option for you is,
Germany is full of well-marked bicycle lanes that make it easy for you to navigate even through the busiest streets! And, what’s more, wondrous than having the wind on your face and the ability to stop by any striking location you want to savor?
If you had finally chosen your mode of transport, then what next?
We have to decide on,
The budget-friendly places to visit in Germany
The first thing that pops-up in our heads when someone says ‘budget-friendly’ is, ‘cheap!’ Some may not like the idea of it because cheap places, in their opinion, are not impressive enough to boast.
We have all been there.
Let’s argue on that later! Now, allow me to take you through some of the exceptionally affordable places that might change your opinion about ‘budget-friendly’!
Start with the world’s largest model train exhibit for only 29.90 Euros! What to do here? Join them on their adventure and revere the trains running through recreations of Hamburg, Austria, the Grand Canyon, and Scandinavia!
The landscape and advanced technology used in building and maintaining this mini global village is extraordinary! Having all those inclusive, it becomes a complete package at such affordable prices.
And when you are visiting Germany, don’t forget to utilize all the special events and grab all the offers included!!
The English Garden
The entrance fee is completely free!
As the name says, it is one of the top-rated scenic parks in the world. It contains a Greek temple, Chinese Pagoda, and a Japanese Tea House, as symbolic representations of the garden’s international recognition.
It is an excellent spot for numerous leisure time activities. I’d mostly recommend it for cyclists, joggers, and athletes wanting to accommodate recreational games!
Couples waiting for a romantic place to make that cute proposal, the English Garden could also be your birthplace of a classical German Love Story like Rolf’s!
But, suppose you are a lover of art and gothic literature, check out the next place:
The giant gothic cathedral would be your favourite place to get lost in art!
Being Germany’s most famous religious structure, it consists of two massive towers that remain as the cologne’s skyline symbol.
Apart from its rare inherent value and the dramatic masterpieces it contains, the Cologne Cathedral testifies to endure European Christianity!
The great news is that all of this exceptionality is only 4 Euro!
Next for the fairy-tale experience at:
Have you seen the castle of Sleeping Beauty in Disneyland? The Schloss Neuschwanstein was Walt Disney’s inspiration for it! Crazy, right?
King Ludwig II built the Neuschwanstein castles to escape public life. Ironic now that it has become one of Germany’s top tourist attractions now!
It is a fairy-tale-like castle, best recommended for children under 18 for whom the ticket fee is made free! But, for adults traveling on a budget, the entry fee is still affordable at only 13 Euro. Just make sure you make the reservations earlier, online.
Memorial of the Berlin Wall!
One of the most empowering and enduring walls that still symbolizes the Cold war! We know the war cost an economic collapse for the Soviet Union, don’t we? But this historical spot is kept open free for visitors to see!
It is mostly visited by tourists to commemorate their historical and patriotic relations with those involved in the Cold War. If you don’t have any emotional associations, it is still an aesthetic spot for photographs while visiting Germany! (Selfie with a history? Yes, please!)
We saw affordable places for history, romance, and to rejoice childhood memories. But, the next place would be like mini heaven for those accustomed to Germany’s city life’s bustles!
The Obersee Lake
Located by the Austrian border, Obersee unfurls from untrodden ways and leads a wooden bridge to a little palm hut. This lake’s mirror-like image makes it an excellent escape into Germany’s wilderness that you can take by walking
There is no entrance fee required for sighting the lake! But to visit the Rothbach falls (Germany’s highest waterfall!), a minimum boat fee of 15 Euro is required. Still affordable and worth it!
After all the food for thoughts and eyes, give a rest for your wallet, appetite, and body at the,
Three Happening German Spots
Contrasting the Obersee Lake that symbolizes a natural escape, Hamburg, Berlin, and Bremen are three of Germany’s most happening spots. Here, you will find clubs, bars, and restaurants that are mostly wallet-friendly! Awesome, I know. Overall, it offers you a vast array of options to eat, sleep, and have fun!
