A passion for travelling and photography

Places of Germany was founded by Jens Voh, who has always enjoyed taking photographs while travelling. Whilst searching for new travel destinations, he always found a large amount of information on the Internet. However, he did not find a portal that clearly presented and rated the sights nearby and the most beautiful tours through Germany. This is how the idea for Places of Germany was born. The perfect opportunity for Jens to share his passion for travelling and photography with others. At the end of 2022, the time had come: Places of Germany went live and has enjoyed a rapidly growing number of users ever since.
