Do you need a vacation? Probably most people will answer yes to this question. There are many good reasons to listen to music while traveling to your vacation destination. Maybe you want to listen to songs on your trip that will make you want to go on vacation.
Others may want to be distracted from the stress of travel. Or maybe you are sitting on a rainy day at home or at work and have wanderlust? Believe us, with our travel and vacation playlist, comes instant good mood!
Music is a universal language, and music helps us break the ice between fellow travelers and locals. Maybe not everyone shares your taste in songs you’ve taken on your trip, or perhaps the locals don’t understand your language either.
But the melody and rhythm of your playlist everyone can understand.
In the few minutes, it takes to sing a song, new friendships arise or awaken the embers of wanderlust within us. Suddenly we are inspired to discover new places and experience new cultures.
The best songs for traveling we want to present to you are below. In doing so, we created three different playlists.
In our 1. Playlist we have compiled the most beautiful songs for the vacation. The result is a tracklist with over 70 songs.
On the 2. The playlist is interesting for all friends of the Schlagers. So that the German hits do not have to stay at home, we have selected 30 songs that should not be missing on any trip.
Tip: If you are traveling by car and planning a road trip, feel free to read our article with the 80 best songs for driving read-through.
(At the end of the article, we have created a Spotify playlist for you with all the songs listed here.)
