      When is the small shop open left of the War Memorial by the Church? Any information, it's name?

      Aßmannshausen May 10, 2015 at 9:13 AM

      When is the small shop open to the left of the War Memorial by the large willow tree? Whenever I have been there it hasn't been open. You can see it in the photos of Assmannshausen and the one taken by Matim. It is by the church on Niederwaldstrasse and just 100 meters north on the corner of Lorcher Strasse and Dreikoenighsstrasse. The next time anyone is there before me, please take a look and post the answer. Thank you in advance.

      Bayern-Ticket on Handy Ticket?

      Bavaria May 16, 2015 at 10:24 AM

      Does anyone know if you can purchase a Bayern-Ticket and display it on your phone through Handy Ticket in the DB Navigator app? The DB website is ambiguous; it says you can in one section, but in another section, it only lists a handful of Länder-Tickets compatible with Handy Ticket, not including the Bayern-Ticket. I did a dry run, and it appears you can purchase the ticket though the app, but of course I didn't actually complete the transaction. Any insights appreciated.

      How Do I travel from Attendorn?

      Attendorn May 20, 2015 at 11:31 PM

      I would be in Attendorn form 7th-26th June 2015 for office work. Hence I would be getting 2 weekends. I am planning to visit Amsterdam on the first weekend (12th June) and Paris on the second weekend(19th June).

      Can anybody tell me how do I get to these 2 cities from Attendorn. Somebody told me that there are no buses or trains from Attendorn to go anywhere. Hence I will have to take a taxi to Cologne and from Cologne I can take a Eurorail. Whereas on internet I found that Attendorn has a railway station and there are daily trains from Attendorn to Amsterdam and also to Paris......I am confused!!!

      Taxi itself would cost me €250 one way which is too expensive. I am looking at a cheaper public transport option may be a bus or a train. Also do let me know the fares and the best possible option.

      I would be getting free from office work at 1.30pm every Friday. Hence any transport from Attendorn around 2.30-3.00 pm would be ideal. And while coming back I would prefer reaching back to Attendorn on Sunday night by 9.00-10.00pm so that I can easily report to office on Monday morning.

      Moreover if you know any good budget hotels in 2 these cities that would be great.

    • 4 days in Baden-Wurttemberg

      Land Baden-Württemberg May 24, 2015 at 2:19 PM

      Hello everybody, we are planning to stay for 4 nights in Bad-Herrenalb to explore the area of the Black Forest. We are a married couple with a 2-year old girl.

      We think of making day trips to Baden-Baden, Karlsruhe, Stuttgart, plus Heidelberg on the way back home.
      I have the following questions:
      1. Could you suggest any other sight that is a must-see around the area - e.g. castles, small villages etc. Preferably something not more than 40' drive away from Bad-Herrenalb.
      2. Do you believe that any of the above cities could be replaced by another? E.g. Munster.
      3. Do you think that we could be able to see the main sights of those cities in just one day, i.e. 6-7 hours, given that we should take the child's needs under consideration?
      4. Any suggestions for a parking place at those cities. It is always stressful to go into a new city by car and it is helpful to have a clue where to go.

      Thank you in advance for any suggestions or advice!

      NRW tickets

      Düsseldorf May 16, 2015 at 12:18 PM

      In a similar vein to Travelfrosch's question below, I'm pondering the journey from Duesseldorf Flughafen to Aachen.

      I know what train I will probably catch (1532) but there is a (very) slim possibility that I might manage the 1432. If I have an NRW ticket, which I can easily buy online, I don't have to buy a ticket for the Air Train from the terminal to Duesseldorf Flughafen railway station (ticket costs 2.50 euro, I think).

      But if I buy a NRW ticket online for the 1532 and manage to get to the station in time to catch the 1432, can I use that ticket on that earlier train? I've had a look on DB and can't find anything relevant. I won't be buying an NRW dayticket, just an ordinary one-way fare.

      In essence: is a single-journey NRW ticket departure-specific or can it be used on any equivalent train?

      Thank you! :-)

      How do you buy tickets for the Public Bus System in Bad Reichenhall? How much do they cost? I may be answering my on question - will the Bayern Ticket I'll be using to get there - work with Public transit there, too? dah - I know - so unsure about that ticket ~
