Winter in Germany is an enchanting experience. Along with The Düsseldorf International Boat Show (also known as boot Düsseldorf), which is one of the most prestigious boat shows in the world, there’s so much to see and do in Germany at this time of year.

Best places to visit in Germany during winter

From wondrous snow-capped mountains that host thousands of skiers every year to magical castles that have inspired fairy tales, here are some of the best things to do for winter holidays in Germany to inspire your next charter with us.

Zugspitze Mountain

One of Germany’s best winter destinations is the top ski resort of Zugspitze. The country's tallest mountain is home to three grand glaciers, quaint chalets, luxury hotels and pristine skiing slopes. 

Three cable cars and the Bavarian Zugspitze Railway (the third highest railway in Europe) make their way up the mountain, inviting snowboarders, skiers and climbers from all around the world.

If you’re looking for relaxation, Hotel MOHR Life Resort is a gorgeous wellness and lifestyle hotel that lies in the shadow of the Zugspitze mountain. There’s also the five-star Romantik Alpenhotel Waxenstein that pampers its guests with warming world-class cuisine and stunning amenities, such as a state-of-the-art gym and contemporary infinity pool. 

Call one of our dedicated account managers if you’d like to arrange a private charter to Germany and to the ski tops of Zugspitze.


Despite the cool temperatures, there’s a host of things to do in Berlin in winter. Take a tour around Germany's parliament building, the Rechstag, or explore Berlin’s famous museums like the Pergamon and the Asisi Panorama. The Pergamon is a particular standout, with its life-sized reconstructions of historical places such as a Roman Market and the Gates of Ishtar from Babylon.

If it’s dry, Berlin is the perfect city to wander around. Swing past the Brandenburg Gate, marvel at the Berlin Cathedral or march up to the Victory Column. For first-time visitors, no Berlin trip is complete without walking along the Berlin Wall.

There are a host of luxury hotels to return to at the end of a big day of sightseeing. Five-star options include Hotel Adlon Kempinski Berlin (the city’s A-list landmark hotel), The Ritz-Carlton (an ever-present classic designed to mirror Berlin’s golden age) and Hotel de Rome, a Rocco Forte Hotel (a mainstay at the heart of the capital since the 19th century).

German winter travel doesn’t get better than the charming spa town of Baden-Baden. Situated against the sprawling Black Forest, winter adds to the magic of this spellbinding region. 

Baden-Baden has an array of boutique shops, inviting restaurants and bars, as well as nearby skiing opportunities in winter. It also provides the perfect base to begin 

a tour to the beautiful Black Forest. The famous high road from Baden-Baden to Freudenstadt is the oldest and best-known route here. It offers travellers wonderful views of the Black Forest and of the Rhine Valley and the chance for some idyllic hiking. 

The hotels in Baden-Baden reflect the prestige you’d expect from a spa town. Brenners Park Hotel and Spa is the most traditional five-star accommodation here. Featuring gorgeous suites adorned with classical features, it’s the ideal place to enjoy a luxury trip to Baden-Baden.

Moselle Valley

Searching for the most beautiful places in Germany in winter? Located in the southwest of the country, Moselle Valley is home to secluded towns, meandering rivers, picture-perfect views and storybook castles. 

The area is particularly magical in the snow, with the towns of Cochem and Burg Eltz a must-see at this time of the year. If you want to immerse yourself into the castle-filled nature of this region, the Schloss Lieser hotel is a contemporary interpretation of a 19th-century castle. Formally constructed in the late 1800s, the building has been completely restored to its former glory and transformed into a luxury five-star hotel.

A luxurious spa retreat

To the south of the country lies Schloss Elmau – the benchmark for luxurious spa retreats. Tucked deep in the calm of the Bavarian Alps, the resort is a sanctuary framed by dramatic peaks, green forests and rushing streams. 

The spa exudes a sense of calm. Despite being surrounded by snow, it’s perhaps the warmest place in Germany during winter. It includes a number of saunas, steam baths, heated outdoor pools and relaxation rooms with open fireplaces. 

When you get hungry, there’s a number of delicious restaurants to choose from, including the two-Michelin-star gourmet restaurant Luce d’Oro. Here, executive Chef Christoph Rainer has created a stunning menu of French and Japanese cuisine designed to delight the senses.
