Most Europeans love to travel to Germany, and in recent years, ecotourism has become especially popular among travelers. And this is not surprising, because in Germany there are many natural wonders, forests, highlands, lakes and rivers that amaze with their beauty.
Germany is one of the best countries on earth to develop ecotourism destinations. Let's take a look at the facts. As of today, Germany recycles 85% of its industrial and domestic waste. 25% of electricity is generated from renewable energy sources, and this is not counting the ambitious plans for nuclear power, which are due to be implemented by 2022. Since 1990, the amount of harmful emissions into the atmosphere has been reduced by 30%. Is this not a confirmation that the Germans take environmental protection very seriously? In addition, green hotels and organic food markets have long been common in many German cities.
The Rhine Valley, with its many castles, is one of the most beautiful and romantic areas in Germany and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here you can take a bike tour along the tops of the steep slopes and see the various castles lining the Rhine River. But one day is definitely not enough to explore all the sights. Therefore, many tourists stay for the night in campsites, "green hotels", vineyards and even on farms, which kindly provide everyone with a place to relax. This 220 square kilometer site can be reached by train or river, so you don't need a car.
