Balneological resorts

Especially popular among Russians Baden-Baden. Gogol, Dostoevsky, Turgenev and other writers rested here. Nikolai Vasilievich wrote to his mother: “I live on the famous waters of Baden-Baden, where I only drove for three days and where I have not been able to escape from for three weeks. Met quite familiar. There are no patients seriously. Everyone comes just to have fun. There are a lot of places for walking around, but I was so lazy that I couldn’t take myself to inspect everything. ”

In addition, in the summer, many Germans, and foreigners too, visit the island of Sylt – a prestigious holiday destination and the most expensive real estate market in Germany. It became a center of attraction for media stars and the German business elite in the early 1960s, helped by the relative proximity of Hamburg, the capital of German journalism. The multimillionaire Gunter Sachs, ex-husband Bridget Bardot and media magnate Axel Springer were frequent guests on the island. In addition to the island of Sylt in the north of Germany, Norderney Island, which belongs to the group of East Frisian islands, is also popular.

Today it is not only a popular holiday destination, but also a prestigious real estate market. Other popular German ski resorts are Berchtesgaden and Oberstdorf. In most regions, skiing is possible from November to February.

In the Alps you can relax in the summer. Among tourists, Lake Constance enjoys great popularity, located at the junction of the borders of Austria, Germany and Switzerland.
