Und das Kasino ist auch toll! Close by is Schlangenbad, Bad Schwalbach, the Pfasanerie (a cute little Zoo), Taunus Wunderland (an amusement park for kids based on Brothers Grimm), the Rhein, the Main, Ruedesheim, Niedermal Denkmal, Bacharach, etc., etc. And don't forget the beautiful woods for awesome hiking! Love it! Meine Heimat ist schoen!

The Plassenburg Fortress in Kulmbach, has always been my favorite castle to show visitors, and it still is...! It houses the World's biggest tin soldier museum...!

One of my favorite places to go use to be Park Schönbusch, and now my kids love going there. Whenever we pick someone up from the airport in Frankfurt or drop them off (depending on the time), we stop at Park Schönbusch.

Definitely take a walking tour that leaves from the Tiergarten and proceeds up Unter den Linden thorugh Museum Island ends at the TV Tower...don't miss the Holocaust Memorial. Oh, and Ka-Da-We is a must for Foodies.

Alexanderplatz, Kuhdamm, Wannsee, Eine Kanal fahrt durch die Stadt von Tegel, Grunewald, und Charlottenburg. Brlin bietet so viel an dass man alles einnehmen muss.

If I could live anywhere else, it would be Celle. Morning hike in the heide and a lovely afternoon watching the world go by at Cafe Mueller Konditorei--nothing better.

I've been to the castle and love it. Celle is my favorite city in Germany. Every year I have to go back to Celle.

Essing is really nice. Was there on a bike tour like 30 years ago! But Regensburg is also very, very pretty. Has a beautiful medieval old city center with tiny little alleyways, nice shops, cafes and beergarden...

I have been there [Pillnitz Castle]. Wonderful castle. Everything in Dresden is wonderful. But I do not have any special tips. Probably one tip I would give is "not to miss it"

This is a very nice day trip from Berlin. The Palace is easy to get to and quick to tour as it isn't terribly large (at least compared to Schoenbrunn). The town also has some interesting neighborhoods which are all very walkable. Highly recommend!
