Castles · Sacred & Religious Sites · Historic Sites
Germany's renowned wine region, Rhineland-Palatinate is home to six of the country's 13 wine-producing districts. It leads the world in the production and export of fine sparkling wines. The region is also known for its modern museums, romantic castles, open-air markets, and traditional festivals, which make up a great number of its attractions. Be sure your itinerary includes a visit to some of the vibrant towns, as diverse and welcoming as the people who live in them. Rhineland-Palatinate is popular with walkers and cyclists. It offers more scenic long-distance paths, short walks, and award-winning trails than any casual tourist could ever hope to explore in a single visit. You can reach the major attractions easily by car or train. But to enjoy the region's pristine natural scenery, picturesque vineyards, and friendly villages, rent a bicycle. This way, you can traverse the countryside at a pace slow enough to soak up the local culture.

Once situated on the edge of empires between the Balkans and Central Europe, Croatia represents a land of great natural diversity and rich cultural heritage.

The country's sapphire seawater and long coastline speckled with islands draws visitors, as do numerous nature reserves, marinas, ancient fortified towns, and sandy and rocky beaches. In recent years, Croatia's shoreline has become a famed center for nautical tourism and naturism, and is a promising diving destination. Hikers explore outdoor landscapes of canyons, underground grottoes, dramatic waterfalls, stony peaks, and scenic lakes of the Dinaric Alps, which hug the coastline. Inland areas showcase mountain resorts, national parks, pine forests, vineyards, and spas.
