      Advice On Where To Stay

      Düsseldorf Jan 10, 2015 at 3:10 PM

      Hello, We are traveling to Dusseldorf and spending 3 days there and then not sure. We know that on the 25th we are going to fly to Rome. At first we were going to stay in Oberammergau for the next 6 days after Dusseldorf and then fly out of Munich to Rome. There are 5 of us and my daugter is 5 months pregnant. My wife wants to really visit the old german cities and shop and eat and stuff, my kids want to ski a couple days. not sure how close the ski resorts are to Oberammergau or is there somewhere better that might have both ski resorts and a airport so we wont have to travel so far to go to the airport. Any suggestions? Should I keep my current plans or maybe pick somewhere besides Oberammergau that has both ski resorts and a major airport 10-15 minutes away?

      Journey from northern Italy to Aachen by train/bus.

      Aachen Jan 7, 2015 at 1:47 AM

      How would it be possible to travel from (let's say Milan, Venice or other places in northern Italy) to Aachen by train (and bus)? Would it be a very long journey? is it better to book a flight to Germany? To where?

      Thanks since now for all your replies.

      having a hard time deciding wether to buy a railpass or airline ticket. Will land in Dusseldorf then train to Cologne where I stay for few days, then I want to go to Munich for two-three days, take a day trip to the castle, then I go to Italy to Genoa then to Brindisi. Panicking now with all the tips I get about what to do to communicate with my family in the USA (this is my first trip to Germany) get a prepaid phone card as I;ve done in the past or a SIMs card? I will arrive in Germany first week of September, my friend told me the climate will be cold.

      Hi, we will be in Cologne this weekend for a daytime event. Arriving 5pm 21st Nov Thursday evening, leaving early on Monday.Our days are accounted for but wondering if there is anything to access in the evenings apart from restaurants and bars? We are staying at Park Inn by Radisson Köln Belfortstraße which I believe is a 15-minute walk north of Cologne’s Old Town? Any Christmas shopping markets?

      (i) Has the flooding affected the Berlin to Cologne rail route ?
      (ii) Do the trains (Berlin to Cologne, Cologne to Brussels) have enough luggage space in the trains ? Will travel with a couple of reasonably large suitcases.

    • Solo Travel around the Christmas Markets?

      by BBaKiwi Online Now Jun 10, 2013 at 1:54 AM

      I have never been to Europe before, but it's a dream of mine to visit a christmas market or two in Germany. The problem however, is that I'd had to travel this by myself ~ while I don't have any fear of doing this, I just wanted to see what people thought about safety etc. I'd be 20 by the time I travel, but wouldn't be looking to see the partying side of the city (my thoughts at this stage is Cologne/Aachen) - just experience a Northern Hemisphere Christmas. Any ideas/advice would be much appreciated. should I just be looking at tour groups who do these breaks?

    • Where to eat during Christmas Markets

      by powells3 Online Now Nov 23, 2012 at 3:59 AM


      I am travelling to Cologne on Friday 7 December, in a group of 9 adults, and I would like to make a restaurant reservation for our first night. We would like a traditional restaurant, nothing too fancy, but with good food and a cozy atmosphere. I have looked on trip advisor, but all of the restaurants I have contacted are fully booked for this date.

      We are staying at the Hilton and ideally we don't want to travel too far to eat, on our first night.

      I would be grateful for any recommendations.

      Public transportation during Christmas time??

      by monica88 Online Now Nov 17, 2012 at 2:13 PM

      Hi again!

      So I also wanted to know how is the public transportation in Köln 24 - 27.12? I've been looking online for the info bt cnt find anything. I know that in some places in Europe buses etc end around midday on Xmas Eve and start on boxing day. I would really appreciate some website where i can see this info! :)

      Because I found good accomodation deals in the centre, but we want to stay near one of my relatives in Höhenburg/Kalk, so I need to know how easy it will be to move during those days from the centre to Höhenburg, or if I should just get a place closer by. Staying in the centre would have its perks though.
      Is Höhenburg far from the centre or is it walkable? :)

      Thank u!

      Cologne - 4 free hours in city center

      The bus from other place shall drop me in the city center on 11:00 for about 4 hours, until the pick-up to the airport. We are 2 adults and 3 children, age of 10 - 8.
      No knowledge of the language. First time in Germany.
      Assuming we will need 1 hour for lunch (is there any McDonald's around?), how would you suggest spend time, what to see, where to go, for such a short stop?
      please advice with basics instructions regarding streets, direction, tram line and stop etc.
