My favorite place in Germany? I dont have one, rather areas where I will not find too many Tourists about… towns like: Rhede, Bocholt, Neckargemünd, Tuttlingen, Ham, Fulda, Lorrach, Münster, Hildesheim, Offenbach usw. That way I may enjoy the locals and their lifestyles. Read a local paper, eat local foods, have the afternoon Coffee Break, go to the Kneipe at night and listen in as what really is happening in Germany. Of course speaking & understanding a local dialect? Prima! RP

I agree, best way to travel, especially if you‘re really interested in the inner workings of a place. For first or second trips, some may benefit from the tour guide type of pure sightseeing trip as to not be overwhelmed, especially when time is short, they don’t want to drive or figure out public transportation, and don’t know much about the country yet. But even then, others just like to explore randomly on their own or meet locals to get the insider tour instead (this has been my personal favorite way of traveling in most countries on 5 continents). Easy to do now on a budget between low budget couchsurfing.com or hostels/motels/Pensionen/B&Bs, and low, medium to very nice airbnb.com or similar sites. I try to post about all the smaller places, too, and have been for years now, but there‘s always more that hasn‘t even been mentioned here yet, including some of the places you listed. 🙂

Die Burg Sooneck is a castle in Rheinland-Pfalz, Southwestern Germany, located near the village of Niederheimbach between Bingen and Bacharach. It’s part of the Rhein Gorge UNESCO World Heritage Site and was first mentioned in 1271. Like neighboring Reichenstein Castle, it was managed by the lords of Hohenfels. Its residential areas are furnished with items in the neo-gothic and Biedermeier styles. The interiors are enriched by paintings owned by the Hohenzollern family, the Köth-Wanscheid family foundation, and art by Johann-Caspar Schneider, among others.
