      Nuremberg Xmas Market and Beginner Sking

      Bavaria Sep 30, 2015 at 6:58 AM

      Greetings forum. We are planning to go to Nuremberg to experience the Xmas market from around Dec 16th. 3 kids ages 8, 10 and 13. My questions are:
      (a) I have the options of direct flights to Munich, Frankfurt or Berlin. From the map it looks like Munich or Frankfurt might be the closet to then get to Nuremberg. Please advise which will be the best airport to fly into out of the 3 options for onward fastest/efficient transportation to Nuremberg - taxi or rail.

      (b) After 3 days of the market which we think should be enough, we are thinking of combining this with a "learn to ski" vacation. Is there any recommendations nearby Nuremberg that might work esp in Dec month? I have heard of persons combining Nuremberg market with sking in Austria so not sure if learn to ski options are available in environs. Recommendations on Austria welcome as well if better.

      Car rental return - Munich

      Munich Sep 5, 2015 at 6:30 AM

      I will be renting the car at airport to travel to Neuschwanstein castle and then to Salsburg. On return, I want to spend some time in Munich city. Earlier, I thought of the option to return back the rental car at airport and then taking train to the city. Looking at the google map suggestion, returning at train station may save me driving time as well as time to use public transport. I want to know if driving in Munich city is easy and then I will not spend too much time stuck in traffic OR is it the best option to return to airport and take a train to the city.

      Halloween, Allerheiligen, Allerseelen

      I will be in Freiburg 30th Oct - 2nd Nov. I've just realised that this covers Halloween, All Saints and All Souls Day. I suspect (to be honest, I hope) that Badners don't celebrate Halloween in the same tacky(!) way as the USA and latterly the UK. In fact, isn't the Germans' use of 'Halloween' Denglish? What was wrong with 'Vorabend vom Allerheiligenfest'?! Question: On Nov 1 and Nov 2 do any traditional events relating to Allerheiligen and Allerseelen take place in Südbaden?

    • Stag Weekend questions

      Munich Sep 13, 2015 at 4:57 AM


      I’m going with a group of 20 males to Munich next month on a stag (after Oktoberfest ends) and have been reading it’s tough with bouncers and stuff there which is annoying but what can you do, we will try our best. The rough plan is touristy beer halls evening and then Schwabing one night, Haidhausen the other night and probably Kultfabrik late probably both nights… does these sound feisable with the size group we are?

      We won’t be dressing in stupid outfits or anything, we’re all aged between 30 – 34 and won’t be walking up to doors in a huge group or anything.

      Also a couple of other questions if any helpful sorts out there might know –

      Where would be the hottest curry restaurant in Munich? I want atomic levels of spice if possible, ghost chili curry sort of thing.

      Is there any hope whatsoever of getting tickets to Bayern Munich v Koln FC around the grounds on the day for a reasonable price (unlikely I know)

      We’re into music-wise, rock n roll, rock, indie, Britpop sort of stuff, are there any particular bars, pubs, clubs we should aim for, or is it all just electro dance stuff?

      I’m trying also to find an obese stripper for the stag, like the fatter the better, they call them blubbergrams in Ireland and roly-poly strippers in the UK, for an idea of what I’m on about,  is there anyone or anywhere I could contact to book this for the stag? All I can find is regular strippers but that won’t do..

      Thanks for any guidance!

      Not too noisy German restaurant for a Friday evening

      Cologne Sep 26, 2015 at 2:00 PM


      Can anyone recommend a not too noisy German restaurant in Cologne's city centre/old town for a small VT meeting.
      Most of the typical brewing houses get quite noisy on a Friday evening, so that a good talk isn't possible anymore.

      I have been for a quiet a few times to this place:

      which is nice when one can sit outside in the courtyard, but as the interior is quite small it gets very noisy in there.

      I was in Hamburg last month and ate dinner on the waterfront. The restaurant had a cake, something like Laboersahntorte. It was unbelievable and I would like to find a recipe. Problem is nothing comes up when I search it, so I'm guessing I'm missing part of the name. It had a marzipan covering, used like some people use fondant. Sound familiar to anyone?

      Purchase of HVV Tageskarten

      Hamburg Apr 23, 2015 at 2:48 AM

      I (and two friends) will be staying for 5 days in a budget hotel on Stresemannstrasse in Altona Bahrenfeld. On most days, I think we travel into the city centre by bus, using the M3 Metrobus. Question: how do we buy our HVV Tageskarten? Is there any ticket-automat at 'Bushaltestelle Schützenstraße (Mitte)'? Are there ticket-machines on board Metrobuses? Will it upset the other passengers and the driver if we buy our Tageskarten from the driver...of what is supposed to be a high-speed bus service?

      I am assuming that HVV tickets (as is the case in other cites) are now date&time-stamped at the point of issue, so you can't buy tickets ahead e.g. a day in advance.

      Note that because I can't guarantee that the three of us will stay together all the time, I do not want to buy HVV Gruppenkarten.

      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?

We are coming over to catch a football match and enjoy some nightlight in a European city. I am obviously aware of the Reeperbhan and have an idea of what it could offer. But what else does the city have to offer at night? What other areas should we be looking at? We will be looking for good pubs to sample some fine German beers then as the night goes on we will be looking for bars and then nightclubs.

      Is there more to the Reeperbhan then just the red light area and strip clubs?

      What time is the busiest and best time to go out? (I.e is it like the UK where places shut at 3am?)

      Hotels near Hamburg in Norderstedt

      Hamburg Mar 25, 2014 at 4:18 PM

      I have previously posted this in the little used Norderstedt Forum where there are no active members - it is not a tourist destination!

      We have a very longstanding friendship with a local family and have made many visits to Nordferstedt. and also have friends in Hamburg.
      We always drive to Germany from the UK but make good use of public transport for local visits.

      We are planning to visit our now elderly friend who no longer has guest accommodation at her home in Norderstedt so we will need an hotel base.

      No VT Reviews - only TA opinions.

      I would much prefer personal recommendation from a member - perhaps one who like us visits Norderstedt to see family or friends, or on business..

      Not looking for budget or luxury, just a good, comfortable middle range base for 4/5 nights.
      I would be so grateful for any advice.
