Special algorithm for the road trip
On the basis of a travelbook.De compiled list of germany’s 50 most beautiful attractions, u.s. data scientist randy olson calculated the most effective car route between the individual sights exclusively for the digital travel magazine. to find this optimized route, randy olson uses an algorithm. Based on hundreds of requests, the shortest route is gradually identified, which includes all sightseeing attractions.
the result is the perfect road trip through the country, which even leads through all federal states and can be started at any point. In total the route is exactly 5498,6 kilometers long. "it would take you 3.08 days to drive the whole distance without stopping," says data expert randy olson of the university of pennsylvania’s institute of bio-informatics. Traffic jams or possible detours are not included in the calculation.
Three weeks are ideal for a trip to germany
If you spend no more than an hour at each attraction, you could complete the round trip in about five days, but without sleeping, eating, drinking or going to the toilet. it is also possible to drive only parts of the roadtrip. three weeks are considered to be the ideal period for this trip to germany, also with a little excursion to kassel, to the documenta 14, which just opened (10. June to 17. September).
the list of germany’s 50 most beautiful attractions includes nature reserves such as the saxon switzerland national park with the elbe sandstone mountains or the wadden sea, historical buildings such as the brandenburg gate in berlin or wartburg castle in eisenach, and museums such as the goethe museum in weimar or the emigrant house in bremerhaven.
