    • Something else about Warnemunde?

      Warnemünde Jan 21, 2015 at 8:43 AM

      We are in Warnemunde on the 5th of July 2015. Problem is: I do not want to see the light houses or the Teapot or stuff like that. I want to do something out of the box. Get to know the people. Get the feel of Warnemunde. I do not want to go into nightclubs either. Just plain friendly German spirit?

      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?

      Large Luggage storage lockers available at central train station?

      Nürnberg Jan 24, 2015 at 9:01 PM

      Hello,

      We are in the very early stages of planning an itinerary through Germany, and do not have a concrete itinerary yet.

      Nürnberg is a possibility for us.

      We would like to know if the central/main Nürnberg train station offers large (to fit a suitcase) storage lockers for people to hire for several hours or a day?

      In addition to the above, we are looking at train timetables and also buses as travel options between some cities.
      I can see that Eurolines for example, has buses from Dresden to Berlin. We used Eurolines between Tallinn-Riga and Riga-Vilnius in 2013 and found them reliable. Are there also other bus companies that we should consider?

      Or do you prefer the trains?

      Thank you, and we look forward to your replies.

      online booking of flights with germanwings

      Germany Jan 10, 2015 at 2:55 PM

      Hello :)
      Has any of you guys tried to book any flight with germanwings?
      Since I was planning to go to Munich, I first tried germanwings. I could find nice and reasonable flights and immediately proceeded to book them. I could go to the final stage of the booking procedure, which is the payment page, but my request was not accepted by the system. The notification popped up, saying "your booking was not completed because of unavailability of the chosen flight or because your card information is void". I was like "WHAT!?" I tried again since I could not believe it, but I failed again. I tried to book other flights, but failed. I used another credit card, but never accepted. I even tried to book a flight for a city that was not my destination at all in a quite far future, but my request was just rejected. All of my trials ended in vain. I messaged germanwings to ask about it, but no reply has be sent so far. Does anyone have the same experience? Or can any of you give me some advice what could be a true problem in my case? Since there are a lot of nice flight offers of germanwings, I dont wanna miss them if possible. So please let me share your experience with online booking with germanwings.
      Thanks in advance :)))

      What about Bremen

      Bremen Dec 31, 2013 at 9:38 AM

      We've booked for a weekend in Bremen end of January. Knowing nothing about the city, aside from a quick at related sites on flight booking, we wonder where is a good place to stay? My German is non existant so I can't work out where's good to stay. Ideally, we'd like a small city centre hotel. We'd rather not go with one of the big multinationals, something more local, centrally located, safe and clean. Any ideas? We like to walk and explore during the day, and in the evening venture out for a bite to eat and a few beers - again, city centre and close to accommodation. Really looking forward to seeing the city, but will be more relaxed about it once we get our accommodation sorted!

      We live in the United Kingdom, and are trying to do some research into our family history / origins / roots. We know that our ancestors came from Bremen; and that some of our descendants settled in the UK in the early 20th Century.

      Please can anyone advise who we might contact In Bremen with our general family history enquiries. I am hoping that there is perhaps a museum with a cultural / family history section who may be able to help (or point us in the right direction).

      Please do advise, if you have any ideas on who we might contact In Bremen about this.

How long is a trip from Tossens to a large city, say Brussels, or Amsterdam, or Hamburg? Thanks for any help!!!! I will be going in the fall or in the spring.

      A bell rings when a fresh barrel is opened - which restaurant does that?

      Bremen Jul 25, 2012 at 2:26 AM

      Many years ago we were in Bremen and my husband remembers being in a restaurant where a bell was rung each time a fresh beer barrel was opened.He would like to go back, but doesn't remember the name. I don't remember much about this but then I'm not much of a beer drinker.
      A google search came up with Beck's zur Glocke. This could be the place, as there is both beer and a bell in the name.However, I couldn't find any information about a bell being rung.
      Does anybody know if this is the right place? Do they still ring a bell? Or is it a different restaurant alltogether?

      Thank you for your help.

      I am travelling with ny nephews who are both very much into football, and object a lot against watching the finals on a 14" screen in the hotelroom ;-)
      Therefore I am looking for some place in Bremen where we can go to see the finale? Is there some areas with big screens, public places that show the game etc?
      My nephews are both teenagers, so it should be a "family-friendly" place :-)

    • Looking for hobby shop selling paper balls

      Bremen Sep 11, 2011 at 3:06 PM

      Hallo! When I visited Bremen I bought a small origami-type ball made out of paper, and it had a hole that a person blows air into to make it puff out into its ball shape. It flattens out into an oval shape with pointy ends when it isn't blown up, and it's glued together. The paper is a kind of tissue, with pieces glued together. I think that Asian origami-makers call it Kami Fusen. I remember that the store also sold a lot (in my opinion) of fabulous kite-making materials. I was absolutely enchanted by the store. Does anybody who lives in Bremen know of any stores there that would sell these things? It might have been a place that primarily sold kite stuff. I went there in 1992.
