    • Living tips

      Oberhausen Nov 17, 2015 at 4:01 PM

      I'm moving to an apartment in grenzstraße, right at Goebenstraße, I've heard a lot of bad things about the area, not being safe and dangerous and high crime rate and stuff, on the other hand, some people say it's not the best place to live, but not as bad as you hear. Since I've already signed the contract and can't get out of it (unless pay three months of rent :O) can I get a realistic review about the area? what to concern? what to worry about?

      Hotel Sorat vs Burghotel

      Nürnberg Nov 5, 2015 at 11:30 PM

      Dear Forum, we will be in Nuremberg for Christmas Market Dec 17th - 22nd, family of 5 with 3 kids 8, 10 and 13. We are trying to decide between Hotel Sorat and Burghotel. Both have great reviews. Hotel Sorat is closer to Xmas market and modern but offers only separate rooms while Burghotel offers 3 bedroom apartment living so everyone together.

      Just wondering if anyone has hand-on experience with both to help break the deadlock. Thanks

    • Would love to hear a few recommendations for Restaurants/Bars/Lounges in Berlin

      Berlin Nov 4, 2015 at 2:50 PM

      We are 3 guys in our mid 30's visiting Berlin for a conference at the end of this month. We are staying at the Arcotel Velvet on Orienburgerstrasse in Mitte. It seems to be a fairy central location with many restaurant and bar options close by and Hackescher Markt a short walk away. I was wondering if anyone could give any recommendations on where people around our age like to hang out in the evenings. Looking for popular spots with a good atmosphere that aren't "nightclubs" where we can eat, drink, and be merry :) Near our hotel is of course a bonus but we don't mind hopping on the U-Bahn for something worthwhile.

      Also, are any of the Christmas markets geared more towards a younger crowd who's more there for the "gluhwein" so to speak? I see that the one at Alexanderplatz has what they call - Partyhaus vom Nikolaus. Would this be a good place to check out? Appreciate the help.

    • Tips for visiting "Neuschwanstein Castle"!

      Munich Nov 23, 2015 at 4:56 AM

      My husband and I will be visiting Marbach am Heckar on Dec. 3, 2015 and stay there for the night. We plan to leave the city in the afternoon of Dec. 4, 2015. Originally we plan to take the train from Marbach to Munich, trying to find a hotel near Marienplatz. Then we plan to join a day tour on Dec. 5, 2015 to visit Neuschwanstein Castle. We will be leaving Munich on Dec. 6, 2-015 and back to USA. I was just thinking whether we can take the train to the nearest hotel close Neuschwanstein Castle and stay there for the night. Then visit Neuschwanstein Castle for the morning and catch a train to get to Munich, Germany. Can any one suggest traveling ideas for our trip? Which way will be better to do? We don't speak German. If we rent a car, we are not familiar with the road and signs. So renting a car can be very challenging. Also, can you suggest what hotel to stay near "Neuschwanstein Castle" and hotels to stay in Munich, maybe close to Marienplatz? or good location that we can get a glimpse of Munich night life in the evening of Dec. 4 or Dec. 5, 2015?  Thank you in advance.

      Trains from Munich to Salzburg

      Hi we (family of 5, kids 8, 10 and 13) are planning a trip to Nuremberg in Dec and plan to take train to Salzburg as well. From my research I will have to take a train in Munich to get to Salzburg. One of my friends just came back from a trip to Salzburg and said "she heard" there are delays and over-crowding on German trains due to the migration issue.

      Anyone had any experience with this to confirm or give a differing view?

      Also is Nuremberg where there are the Xmas markets the same as Nurnberg? Nurnberg is what I am getting when searching for flights, not Nuremberg. Thanks in advance

      Can I get the S-Bahn from Wiesbaden directly to Frankfurt Main.

      Wiesbaden Nov 5, 2015 at 1:44 AM

      I am arriving in Frankfurt Hahns as I booked by Ryanair and had no idea that Frankfurt Hahn airport was actually no where near Frankfurt, Who would have thought! Unfortunately I have terrible anxiety when travelling on public transport or motorways or trains and will not be able to do 2 hours on a bus to Frankfurt, so I have researched my plan to get the shuttle bus to Mainz and the S-Bahn to Wiesbaden as there was not much choice of hotels left in Mainz so I will stay a night there then travel to frankfurt next day. I have booked a hotel in Sachsenhausen , Hotel Novum Primus, so if anyone has any advise on how to get there when I get off the train at Frankfurt would be a great help, also i noticed there is 3 stops for frankfurt, which one do i get off at? Thanks in advance from a very worried traveller!

      Train Travel

      Munich Nov 4, 2015 at 8:14 AM

      Hi we are flying into Nuremberg for the Xmas markets and then one option is to travel by train from Nuremberg to Salzburg in Dec. There are 5 of us (with kids ages 8, 10 and 13) so at least 5 pieces of medium to large size luggage as you would check in a plane. Questions on this are:
      (a) What is the name or names of best trains to use from Germany to Austria.
      (b) is there anything like a family cabin or alternatively a first class section that can be booked
      © is there storage space for luggage on trains that would accomodate medium to large luggage. Overhead compartments will be too small
      (d) are there porters at stations to help with luggage as in an airport

      If that does not look convenient or hassle-free I'll have to research flying! Thanks

    • small pigs

      Rüdesheim am Rhein Oct 31, 2015 at 10:56 AM

      About five years ago I bought small pigs all different from a store that sold many items. They had a basket of the pigs by the cash register and told me they were mainly used for birthdays.

    • Planning to visit Schiller NationalMuseum in Marbach, Germany. Which hotel should we book?

      Marbach Nov 19, 2015 at 8:13 AM

      Dear sirs:

      My husband, Troy is a descendant of Friedrich von Schiller. Read more about it at

      We have made a special trip to come to visit Schiller Nationalmuseum in Marbach. It seems to us there are no hotel in Marbach, Germany and we found your hotel names “Friedrich von Schiller”.

      We are planning to take the train from Weimar to Marbach, Germany on Dec. 3, 2015, scheduling arrive at the train station about 7:30pm or 8:30 pm. We are going to Weimar first the day before.

      We are going to catch a train to Munich on Dec. 4, 2015 in the afternoon about 3:00PM

      I have done my research and find 2 hotels for now:

      1. Romantik Hotel Friedrich von Schiller

      Marktplatz 4+5, 74321 Bietigheim-Bissingen, Germany –

      We like this one because it is named after my husband's multi-grandfather. It looks very nice but a bit pricy.

      2. Hotel & Restaurant Goldener Pflug

      Dorfstraße 2-6 , 71636 Ludwigsburg, Germany –

      I think that this one is closer to the museum and price is better, including breakfast.

      If you have experience, can you recommend?

      1. What train station are they close to? Ludwigsburg? Bietigheim-Bissingen?

      2. How far is the train station to the hotels? Can we walk? How should we get to you?

      3. We have very limited time being there. We are concerned due to our very tight schedule, we probably should stay in Ludwigsburg or Marbach if there are hotels there. Can you recommend? What do you think?

      4. How far are they from Schiller Nationalmuseum? Can we take train to get there?

      5. How often is the train since we have to get back to the hotel to pick up our luggage to catch a train to Munich.

      6. If we decide to rent a car at your hotel when we arrive and return the car in Munich, Germany. Is it possible?

      Thank you very much.

      In God We Trust!

I am writing this to ask if it is as easy as it sounds or is there anything I need to keep in mind (For E.g: I will have some baggage - Around 30 Kgs so it wont be great idea if involves a lot of walking/taking pubic transport/if there is a baggage restriction on the trains)


    • Munich in December 2015

      Munich Oct 31, 2015 at 9:41 AM

      Me and other 5 friends are travelling to Munich during the month of December for 7 days and we where planning some day trips to fill up our itinerary.
      We where planning to visit Berchtesgaden/ Eagle's Nest and while there also drop by to the Salt mines, do you think that's something doable in one day?
      Our second plan was to visit Rothenburg since we've heard it's quite a magnificent town. We've also been suggested to visit Regensburg/Mittenwald (Neuschwanstein Castle is out of the question since we've already been there).but we don't want to pack up our itinerary then miss the beauties of Munich.

      What are your suggestions? Which places are worth a visit and how is the best/ cheapest way to travel to these locations, is it worth it to rent a car since we also need to travel from airport to Munich and back? We're big fans of Christmas markets and anything related to it so your suggestions would be mostly welcome :).

      and b) if I can't remain in transit, is 3 hours enough time or would I be better off trying to get on an earlier flight to Frankfurt?

      Thanks for any help! - Megan
