    • Is there a town called Schopfloch in this region?

      Schwäbische Alb Mar 21, 2015 at 6:04 PM

      I am working on my family genealogy of the Pfau family, who lived in Schopfloch and several were mayors of the city in 1700s and early 1800s. but my genealogist says there are 3 Schopflochs in Germany. In my family history it describes it as a town "in southern Germany, in the Schwabisch Alb region" The genealogist says these are the three but I can't tell which is the one described in the family records. Do any of you know?
      her quotes:
      Which one? There are 3 in Germany:
      72296 Schopfloch near Freudenstadt (phone book full of PFAUs) I suppose it is this one?
      73252 Schopfloch between Stuttgart and Ulm (Württemberg) (some PFAUs)
      91626 Schopfloch near Ansbach/Nürnberg (Bavaria) (no PFAUs) my knowledge of German geography is poor but can any of you tell me which is the most likely the one my family describes as southern germany near Schwabische Alb? I'm guessing it is this one but I can't find any map to let me know there is a Schopfloch in this region. Does anyone know? thanks so much . Fred Lorey

      Ferienwohnung suitable?

      by margsch Online Now Apr 24, 2006 at 8:44 PM

      I am going to Germany in September from Australia and wish to take an elderly Aunt (eine Schwäbin) with me to a Ferienwohnung on the Bodensee, without stairs i.e. ground floor is preferable. I have never been in that area of Germany before but have seen on the web a nice flat at Oehningen however we will be obliged to use public transport and getting there seems rather awkward. We would be by train from Munich. Can anyone recommend another town that would perhaps be easier to reach. Otherwise I wonder what a taxi would cost from Radolfzell to Oehningen?
      Due to the age of my aunt I would like to be easy walking distance to the lake and shops and it seems there are many holiday flats in the area, but restricting a flat to ground floor only is making it difficult. I am open to suggestions for anywhere in the area with good public transport. If it comes to the worst I would hire a car and put a sign in the back "vorsicht, Australier fährt Auto" and I think other drivers would keep their distance!

    • Christmas in Bodensee

      by LauraLexi Online Now Sep 1, 2005 at 1:27 PM

      My family and I have had many lovely holidays in South Germany and we very much enjoy the German Christmas and the run-up to Christmas (not to mention the summers). Our winter experiences so far have been of Garmisch-Partenkirchen and surrounding area which of course with the snow, mountains and Christmas markets is especially magical. This year we are considering a week immediately before Christmas in the Bodensee area and from the map think the eastern end of Bodensee looks a reasonable bet - Bregenz has about the same population as Garmisch and the mountains do not appear far. BUT - does it have that magical touch? Are there nice (not too big) Christmas markets nearby and would our 5 & 6 year old girls (sledgers, not ski-ers) be kept entertained? Any tips or advice would be gratefully received.
