"Dear GermanPlaces,

First of all, congratulations for your great and useful website I have just visited your site and I really appreciate the efforts you have put in your Website.

Marlisse, USA

"Hello GermanPlaces,

I think it’s great that GermanPlaces exists - every time I get homesick I look at your page.
I moved to Dubai in May and sometimes it is nice to see familiar pictures and to be able to enjoy Germany’s nature- despite the extraordinary city over here.
GermanPlaces is cool, the pictures fantastic and the information on Germany increase my homesickness even more! ;-)

Keep going! I’m a regular visitor of your site."

"Hello GermanPlaces Company,

WOW! Your website is really fantastic!! I'm so impressed! Congratulations!
I can tell you put a lot of hard work into it. The photos are wonderful, and the writing is very good, too!

What a wonderful thing to give back to your country!"

I accidentally stumbled over your web page. GermanPlaces is so cool! I will forward your page to some friends of ours from Columbia right away as they ask: “What should we do in Germany for two whole weeks?” Due to your website they can get an own impression and maybe they become more enthusiastic to visit Germany that way! ;-)"

„Respect! GermanPlaces is a high-end website with brilliant pictures, relaxingly short texts and an affiliated wiki for communicative people. All that without those advertisements bothering you elsewhere.
Please go on with your work!”

Carsten Höger, Senior Software Engineer OpenXchange Inc.

„From my point of view GermanPlaces is a new kind of portal for tourism in Germany, bringing fun and making me come back! It is the first time you really get an appetite, attracts people and makes more of them discover Germany! GermanPlaces reaches a new quality, clarity and outstanding usability without disturbing advertisement.”

Mike Hager, Director Software Development Novell Inc.

"Hello, I happened to find myself on your page and I was „flattened“- it is so comprehensive and technically as well as optically perfect! Great pictures throughout Germany, pleasantly readable as well as professional texts in two languages that are prepared didactically and optically perfect for a web presentation.!
Damn great, that’s what I call real service to the German tourism. Hats off!”
