Launched last year, the campaign continues to advocate for responsible travel, and these tips, it said, are integral to that mission.

The 'Simply Feel Good' campaign is designed to redefine travel experiences by incorporating sustainable practices that enhance both the journey and our planet's health. It is a testament to Germany's dedication to eco-conscious travel and is a continuing commitment to redefine travel experiences by highlighting sustainable practices, a statement said.

Germany is at the forefront of responsible travel, offering a variety of eco-friendly accommodations and promoting activities such as walking, cycling, and canoeing.
