    • Zugspitze Austria or Germany? need to confirm some info pls

      Germany 1 hours ago

      Hi All,

      I have gathered info for reaching Zugspitze from both Germany and Austria sides. I have some queries please:

      1. From Austria's the good thing is it's cheaper, lesser crowds but I read post about Germany side is more scenic especially the ascent from Eibsee (the comment is from a German so I want to hear others opinion too :D). Does the crowd worthy for the scenic? I plan to go there around noon after Neuschwanstein so I think the crowd would've gathered.

      2. I'd eliminate the cogwheel train and drive directly to Eibsee. Does the Eibsee cable car has problems with queuing too? I read that it runs half hourly, 10mnts to reach Zugspitze but I think I read somewhere there're only 2 Eibsee-Selbahn that operate, each could only fit 30ppl. Could someone please verify this?

      3. If I decide to go from Germany, I plan to go uphill by Eibsee and downhill by the Glacier cable car/Gletscherbahn. Or is it better vice versa?

      4. The price from the Austrian's Tiroler Zugspitzbahn side
      There are 2 that I find , one is Gipfel-Ticket "Erlebnis Zugspitze" Euro 40.5 (Euro 38 w/guest card).
      Another is Platt-Ticket "Kleine Rundreise"/ Round trip ticket Euro 52. What does Platt Ticket 'Kleine Rundreise' mean?
      I assume Euro 52 is the price for the Germany side?? Is there any guest card discount from the Germany side?

      5. Could I use the guest card if I live in another town or country ? for example using the Germany guest card in Austria or using guest card from Oberammergau in Garmisch Parthenkinchen?

      6. The price in Germany side which I assume Euro 52, does it include everything such as the cogwheel train, Eibsee and Gletscherbahn? I understand though I do not ride the cogwheel train, it's going to be charged the same but I plan to use both the Eibsee and Gletscherbahn

      7. If I plan to drive to Ehrwald, where is the stopping/destination point on GPS? Is it Obermoos instead of Ehrwald since I view from gmap the Tiroler Zugspitzbahn operates from that point?

      8. I see there could be cogwheel train stop in Riffelrib if requested. Is there any viewing platform just for the scenery or is it only for the skiier/hiker?

      Sorry for the many queries. I really appreciate all inputs even if you could provide info on any of them.


    • Green Zone stickers for driving in Germany

      Germany 1 hours ago


      Is Green sticker compulsory for tourists driving in Germany? We are going to the UNESCO Rhine Valley Heritage, Rothenburg ODT , Neuschwanstein, Zugspitze , Berchtesgaden and Munich. We are going to cross over to Salzburg, Austria too.

      Are these areas required a green sticker? Would the rental car agency provide them or should I pay extra for it? If I have to pay, how much would it cost?

      When is the small shop open left of the War Memorial by the Church? Any information, it's name?

      Aßmannshausen May 10, 2015 at 9:13 AM

      When is the small shop open to the left of the War Memorial by the large willow tree? Whenever I have been there it hasn't been open. You can see it in the photos of Assmannshausen and the one taken by Matim. It is by the church on Niederwaldstrasse and just 100 meters north on the corner of Lorcher Strasse and Dreikoenighsstrasse. The next time anyone is there before me, please take a look and post the answer. Thank you in advance.

    • Munich to Prague - early train

      Munich May 18, 2015 at 6:44 AM

      Hi, my friend and I (2 of us) would like to take a train from Munich to Prague. We are interested in the train departing at 4.55am on 13 June and arriving in Prague at 10.44 am. May I know if this train is covered by the Bayern-Bohmen ticket? And our lodging is near Munich Harass station, so we have to take a train to Munchen Hbf. Does this ticket cover that as well? Last question, can we purchase the ticket from the vending machine in either Harass or Marienplatz station? Thanks!

      Trying to identify a cake I ate in Hamburg

      Freie und Hansestadt Hamburg May 19, 2015 at 2:21 PM

      I was in Hamburg last month and ate dinner on the waterfront. The restaurant had a cake, something like Laboersahntorte. It was unbelievable and I would like to find a recipe. Problem is nothing comes up when I search it, so I'm guessing I'm missing part of the name. It had a marzipan covering, used like some people use fondant. Sound familiar to anyone?

    • Places to leave luggage around Brandenburg Gate

      Berlin May 5, 2015 at 6:45 PM

      Hi, we will be arriving in Berlin early in the morning but our host won't be able to meet us till the afternoon. We were intending to go for the free walking tour (meeting point at Brandenburg Gate) before we meet our host. Are there any safe lockers that we can store our travel backpacks near Brandenburg Gate? I read that Friedrichstrasse station has lockers to store luggages, but are they big enough for a normal travel backpack? Thanks!

    • Getting from aeroplane to ICE train, how long should I allow for?

      Stuttgart 11 hours ago

      Greetings all! I will arrive by plane to Stuttgart Airport (from Italy on Air Berlin), landing at 3pm. I plan to catch an S2 / S3 to Stuttgart Hbf, then catch an ICE train to Frankfurt Hbf.

      Should I reserve an ICE train ticket in advance to get the best price? If so, plane lands at 3pm, what departure time should I reserve my ICE train? Perhaps 7pm ICE train? (4 hours from landing to boarding ICE?) I wish to allow for any unforeseen plane / customs delays etc. I don't wish to rush too much!

      Thanks for any advice!
