Traveling to Germany with a Dog

Discover new cities with your furry loved one!

Dog owners often consider their pets to be full members of the family. Therefore, it’s not surprising if you don’t want to leave your dog behind when you go on vacation and would rather spend that free time together.

Fortunately, this is not a problem, especially when traveling to Germany with a dog — you can reach your destination comfortably by car and stay overnight in one of our pet-friendly hotels, where pets are expressly welcome.  

Let us show you the adventures and extraordinary places that await you when you visit Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Frankfurt am Main and Leipzig with a pet. 🐶

Trip to Hamburg with a dog: a dog’s green paradise for long walks 

Hamburg has more than 100 official dog walking areas. There are 20 dog walking areas around the Altona district alone, including Emil Wendt Park and Walther Möller Park. There are also numerous pet-friendly cafés. At Café Milch near the Landungsbrücken, you can have a photo taken of your pet in front of a photo wall. You can later see the animal portraits on Instagram under the hashtag #milchdogs. In summer, Hamburg offers numerous opportunities for swimming: in addition to Elbstrand and Falkensteiner Ufer, we also recommend a trip to Eichtalpark, where there is a dog area with water access.

The fenced-in area offers a large, 35,000-square-meter space for people and animals to romp and frolic. If you prefer to be near the water, you can visit the dog beaches at Kulkwitzer and Cospudener See. And if you want to take a quick break, there are plenty of dog-friendly cafes and restaurants.

Trip to Munich with a dog: sun, lake and spa for well-being 

With its delicious food and the Isar River at your doorstep, the capital city of Bavaria is worth visiting at any time of the year. In many parks, such as the English Garden and Westpark, dogs must be kept on a leash, yet there is no lack of variety and fenced green areas for a playful romp. In summer, you can spend a relaxing day with your dog by the water at one of the many lakes in and around Munich. Dogs are also welcome in Hellabrunn Zoo and the Botanical Garden. After an active day in the city, the Salon Dogs of Munich and the Haus des Hundes offer great programs to pamper your furry travel companion.
