What would you say are some of Germany's most underrated destinations? Berlin, Munich, Dresden, Hamburg, Köln, the Rhine Valley, the Romantische Strasse, Neuschwanstein - these are all major standards on the tourist trail. But from my experience traveling around the country, Germany is full of charming historical towns and cities, a good number of which don't get anywhere near the same amount of play in foreign tourist literature. Places like Bamberg, Regensburg and Freiburg spring to mind. I did a daytrip out to Lübeck from Hamburg about two years ago, which - despite its UNESCO status - seemed to be sleepy, laid-back and decidedly untouristy (maybe it was the time of year?). From what I've heard and seen in pictures, Stralsund, Quedlinburg and Leipzig would fit the bill too.

Any other suggestions? I'd love to spend a couple weeks sometime traveling around Germany just hitting places off the beaten path.

As a matter of facts, Germany sure has some "underrated" destinations. Some small towns are really amazing and show an unqiue atmosphere. One example is Stralsund - a small town located at the baltic sea. It has a wonderful old town. I can higly recommend Stralsund for a short trip:)
