    • Munich in March - Strongbeer Festival

      Munich Feb 22, 2015 at 10:45 AM

      My husband and I are traveling to Munich to land in the early morning on March 22. Our plan is to start off taking the train from Munich to Salzburg and do some sightseeing for the day then head off to ski the alps for a couple of days and return on Thursday to enjoy the Strongbeer festival to end our trip. Any suggestions on how we planned our trip? We figured the weekend would be best for enjoying the Strongbeer festival. Should there be any reservations made for tables at the different beer halls as they might get busy? Where do we find a list of interesting things going on during it? For example: strongman competition.

      We are open to any and all suggestions!

      Visiting in March?

      Nationalpark Berchtesgaden Feb 8, 2015 at 11:23 AM

      I'm visiting a family friend in Passau, Germany in early March and would like to spend a day or two (?) seeing the park - will any light hiking be possible? I'm not sure how much snow will be there or what the weather is like. Also, any suggestions on where to stay that has close access to the park?

      Taking a stroller in a Horse Carriage

      Schloss Neuschwanstein Feb 13, 2015 at 1:34 PM

      We will be visiting Neuschwanstein Castle with a 3 y.o. child in early May.

      The bus will not be available in these days due to some road maintenance.

      We will not take inside tour, only some Courtyard shots and up and down to the Bridge.
      Is there a possibility to bring a stroller in a Horse Carriage with us or our only option is to take a long walk uphill ?

      Question about Zugspitze roundtrip option

      Garmisch-Partenkirchen Feb 22, 2015 at 11:49 AM

      We will arrive to Eibsee by car and from there would like to take a cable car (Eibsee Seilbahn) up to the top straight away.
      Then, after spending some time at the summit, we will get down to the Zugspitzplat (by Gletscherbahn) for some lunch
      The question is - can we go backwards to Eibsee exactly vice versa?

      I mean the following route: Eibsee --> Zugspitze Summit --> Zugspitzplat --> Zugspitze Summit --> Eibsee (all by cable cars).

      Or our only option is a train only ? We are going with a little daughter, prefer not to boil her in a train full of tourists.

      The second question - Can we buy the tickets directly at Eibsee station or we have to visit Garmisch for a tickets ?

      I live in Bamberg and have been here for about 6 weeks now. I have gone sight seeing and have experience quite a bit of the German culture. However, I am beginning to miss certain foods and condiments. For example Tapatio hot sauce, El Pato tomato sauces, and various other spices. I am no stranger to the road and if anyone knows where I can find these items please let me know.

      Earlier this year I visited Bamberg and purchased a hat- a woollen cap. I am very pleased with it and should like to purchase another. I have lost the address of the shop and will be grateful if someone can provide me with the information I need: i.e. name of shop, telephone number, e-mail address.

      The shop window had the sign "HOLLAND" in the window and "WEGENER".

      The shop is situated on the left side of a street leading acroos the bridge towards the Cathedral

      When I was a lad I courted the girls: No that's a different song. I was stationed in Bamberg as a lad for eigteen months in the French Prussian wars it seems. Going back to the scene of my dastardly, misspent youth. What should I expect in Bamberg and Bavaria 40 years later? Hotels, restaurants what have you are welcome.
