In June, I traveled abroad to Bosnia and later Poland. Many people I encountered told me that they love Germany and would like to visit it. Of course, I was asked: What can you recommend? Starting off with an amazing video by Get Germanized then you will get an ultimate and of course totally subjective list of Mailbox Germany’s favorite regional locations.

Mailbox Germany’s favorite locations
Bauhaus and the Wörlitzer Gartenreich in Dessau
The city of Dessau-Roßlau is famous for the Bauhaus, which was an art school in the 1920s and a very influental design period. Today, it’s a museum. Maybe half an hour off of Dessau, you can encounter the Wörlitzer Gartenreich (Wörlitz park) which is an UNESCO world heritage site as well as a beautiful park and garden.
In Wittenberg, Martin Luther started the Protestant movement in 1517 with the legendary 95 theses he pinned on the gate of the local church. Today, a big foundation takes care of the castles, churches and historical sites of this lovely city.
Himmelschreibe von Nebra in Halle (Saale)
Halle (Saale) or Halle an der Saale is a big university city in the southern part of Saxony Anhalt, just some kilometers north of Mailbox Germany’s home town of Merseburg. The city has many touristic attractions but the best-known is the so-called Sky Disk of Nebra a 4,000-years old metallic disk depicting the oldest known view of the night’s sky. It is an UNESCO world document heritage.
Schlossgarten in Merseburg
Last but not least the Castle Gardens of Merseburg are a magnificent view to behold. The castle was the seat of bishops and kings and the gardens were for their leisure. In the late 19th century, an aristocrat from Estonia even tried to copy the castle but could not finish his project.

I have a neverending curiosity how things work. I'm involved with Mailbox Germany since 2014. Let us explore this world and its logistics!
Since 2011, I work as Schrift-Architekt, a freelance consultant for social media and for some time now I am an avid German podcaster with #Onlinegeister, radio about internet culture, social media, and PR.
