    • 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

      Elbtunnel suggestions

      Hamburg Mar 2, 2015 at 2:22 AM

      I am going back to Hamburg in mid-May, for 5 days, having been persuaded by two former work colleagues (who have no German and have never visited Hamburg) to act as translator, organiser and guide. So this may be the first of a few questions...
      Last time I walked through the Elbtunnel, it was being refurbished and ther were no cars. I assume the work is now complete (correct?) and that we would be sharing the tunnel with cars. Anyway, has anyone any suggestions for what to do once you emerge from the tunnel ion the southern bank of the Elbe? Last time, I took in the view of the city across the river, walked past the various works entrances to Blohm + Voss, and looked for a memorial to the prisoners from Neuengamme who had worked as forced-labourers in the shipyards (I never found it. Does it exist? Where exactly is it?), My main question: Is there any 'route' back to 'central' Hamburg, involving a reasonable walk and/or public transport, other than a stroll back through the tunnel?

    • Itinerary question 1 week munich

      Germany Mar 1, 2015 at 8:42 PM

      We arrive MUC on a Sat around 3. Return 8 days later on a Sunday. Must see locations: Salzburg (Sound of Music). beautiful alpine villages and a couple of Ludwig's castles. Thinking of driving for most of trip. Probably need 2 days in Munich (historic area mainly), and 2 full days in Salzburg. Thinking we should keep Munich for the end of trip because otherwise we'd be there on a Sunday, when markets and shops are closed. So question is whether we should drive south to Fussen or east to Salzburg on arrival from overseas flight?
      All suggestions welcome! thank you!

      Once I find a place I'm ready to partner with a German Makler and go into the immobilien business for expats. The competition is ridiculous :)

      Short Scenic Tram Route In Dresden

      by Mark_Lester Online Now Jan 4, 2012 at 9:53 PM

      I've got about an hour maximum to spare in Dresden. I'm trying to work out what would be a nice, roughly circular, tram route. If we use the same road back and forth from the Old City to the station that's OK, but there's obviously a lot of options for something circular.

      Tram 11 from Hauptbahnhof all the way to Albertplatz, then back again on a #3, might do the job (it doesnt have to take an hour, less would be good).
      I guess the question might be better put "what's the best bridge to cross over on, and what's the best street that you really should do" and I can work it out from there.

      If you could also point me in the direction of some info on how and where to buy tickets and what the cost is, and the quickest way to get tickets for 15 (there's a whole gang of us) that would be nice but I'm sure I'll work that out eventually.
