We will be staying in Basel for a week in October and wanted to take the train up from Basel to Lorrach for dinner one night (to get out of Basel for a night). We would obviously like something near the station or within reasonable walking distance. We love rustic food and something local and authentic german food would be nice. Any help would be appreciated.

      I've been at this for over a month and I'm tired of it :) It's almost impossible to find a good place to rent in Dresden. I've had enough of the Immobilliens and Internet searches. I prefer to find a place through a real person. Not the internet or an immobilien. If anyone knows of a place to rent (70-90 sq. met.) near a park or forest that is available now please let me know :)

      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.

      Btw, I bought a ticket from Dresden Hbf to Frankfurt, but I changed

      stops at the Altstadt Bahnhof and then moves to the Hbf. Do you know if
      there could be any problem if I took the train in the Altstadt Bahnhof?
