    • Xmas markets - Nuremberg, Bamberg, Rothenburg

      Nürnberg Nov 2, 2014 at 11:09 PM

      Planning 2½-3 days based in Nuremberg during the first week of December.
      One day planned for Bamberg, one day for Rothenburg and one day for Nuremberg.
      The impression I get from travel forums is the the Nuremberg Xmas market is one of the better (and bigger) ones in Germany. There are also Xmas markets in Bamberg and Rothenburg.

      My question is: From personal experience, would you try to spend as much time as possible at the Nuremberg market at the expense of time in the Bamberg and Rothenburg markets? That is, should I leave Bamberg/Rothenburg for Nuremberg relatively early (15:00-16:00) after seeing their respective markets, in order to have more time at the Nuremberg market? I know the Nuremberg market is open until 21:00. How would you divide your time?

      Rothenburg ob der Tauber Oct 30, 2014 at 5:22 AM

      From reading all the info, travel to Rothenburg from Munich is quickest by car but I am from Australia and unsure of driving in Europe. Is there a company that will transport my husband and myself by car? We have booked to stay for 2 nights.
      I really want to spend time here as I only got to spend an hour there on a previous trip.

    • Nuremberg to Bamberg and Rothenburg ob der Tauber by public transport

      Nürnberg Oct 29, 2014 at 10:44 PM

      Planning 2 separate day trips (with wife) to Bamberg and Rothenburg from the Leipziger Platz area of Nuremberg.

      Originally, I planned to use my DB 'twin pass' to each destination, since the cost for the added days is much cheaper than individual train tickets for the 2 of us. However, now I see another option: The VGN Day Ticket (price level 10). According to the VGN web site, the one ticket costs €17.50 and is good for the both of us, that is, it is a 'twin' ticket in our case.

      (1) Can someone from the Nuremberg area confirm that the VGN Day Ticket includes both Bamberg and Rothenburg and that it would indeed cost us only €17.50 per day for BOTH of us?
      (2) I understand from the site that the VGN Day Ticket includes all travel on the Nuremberg area U-bahn, S-bahn, and buses, so that with that ticket we can both travel from Leipziger Platz to the Nuremberg Hbf, then to Bamberg or Rothenburg, return to Leipziger Platz in Nuremberg, then go out for that same evening somewhere in Nuremberg - all costing us only €17.50?
      (3) If the above is correct, where can one buy the VGN Day Ticket? At any U- or S-bahn station?
      (4) Getting to Rothenburg by train is somewhat of a nuisance and inefficient, as one has to transfer TWICE for such a short journey. Is there an alternate public transport way to get there (e.g., bus) which is direct and also included in the VGN Day Ticket?

      I thank you very much.

Are there any other options i.e. fly to munich then train to fuessen.... but i would love to see the beautiful scenery from the train. im just a bit stuck with this part of my planning. Any advice from travellers who have done this route would be appreciated. Many thanks. Carole

      Munich in January?

      Munich Oct 8, 2014 at 11:07 AM


      In January I have a semester break for 1 month and with spontaneous lust, I decided to visit Munich for 7-8 days, most likely after January 16.
      I'm actually not a winter person and not that fond of snow-covered sights. I'm also on a tight budget, so most of the time I prefer travelling in summer, in order to enjoy the place I visit at most.

      What attracts me most about Munich is its nature and the cosy feeling it gives. I'm sure that it'll be cosy, but not sure if I can enjoy sightseeing when it's too cold, since winter in Istanbul (2-3°C) is already cold for me.

      Do you think if I would still enjoy Munich in January? Or do you think that I should put off my trip to summer?

      Thanks a lot in advance,

      Travelling in pairs ... is there a 50% discount ticket for that ?

      I have read somewhere that while travelling in pairs within Germany over long distances (4 plus hours ) ,it would be worth buying a 50% off or 2 for 1 or companion ticket .It could save as much as 150 Euros on a ticket.

      Where do I get to buy such a ticket ?
