This book – unfortunately only available in German up to now! – is both an excursion into the past of travel and a handbook for discoveries during your next vacation in Germany.
Because: Who already knows Germany? And: who hasn’t caught themselves thinking, “I’ve never actually been there before!” when looking at a map of Germany? Or with a sentimental, “I was there once as a child with my parents.”
The Wunderkammer brings together old travelogues and whimsical, philosophical texts about traveling in Germany with a panopticon of fairy-tale places off the beaten path.
An entertaining journey of thought in which no detail goes unnoticed. – Frankfurter Rundschau
An opulent and totally magical travel book about Germany. – MDR Culture
