Tourist attractions in all 16 federal states are included in the Top 100. Overall, survey respondents selected a wide spectrum of cultural and natural highlights throughout Germany. Top 100 is the GNTB’s first mobile app for Android and iOS devices. It provides specific and extensive information on the particular attractions and enables quick and easy sharing with friends via Facebook. Users can also access up-to-the-minute news on Destination Germany, and they can get money off at various sights thanks to the mobile discount vouchers.
