VIRTUAL GERMAN TRAVEL EXPERIENCES 2020

Enjoy Bavarian lifestyle at home, dance the night away with a digital DJ set streamed to your home from Berlin or go on a virtual walk through Stuttgart- #DiscoverGermanyFromHome

In the current climate of armchair travel, the German National Tourist Office (GNTO) would like to inspire travellers to go on a journey of the mind. Featuring all 16 federal regions over the next few weeks, the GNTO introduced a number of newly launched microsites, which bring regional lifestyle to all homes of travellers to dream about their next German getaway. On your marks, get set, go - first stops are Bavaria, Stuttgart, Saxony and Berlin!

Bavaria Home Delivery

If you cannot go to Bavaria, Bavaria can come to you with the newly launched “Bavarian Home Delivery” website. BayTM has launched a new microsite offering videos that inspire travel to Bavaria, introducing Bavarian customs, craftsmanship as well as food and drink. You can learn more about local characters, such as Lederhosen tattoo artist Michael Thalhammer or artisan baker Arndt Erbel. There is also a section about Bavarian music, for example, an introduction to Loisach Marci – a Bavarian duo combining the sound of traditional Bavarian instruments with Electro beats.
