We (an active senior couple) will be travelling by KD Rhine boat from Bingen to Koblenz late in April. We would love to break the boat trip with a few hours ashore in Boppard. Trouble is ... we will be travelling with our holiday luggage. Can you suggest where we might be able to leave our suitcases safely (near the landing place), while we explore on foot? Alternatively, can you suggest a place where we might enjoy lunch and then leave our bags? Best Wishes from Australia! Ken and Liz.
Hi, I'll arrive in Mainz to study there on a study abroad program. I will be arriving in Frankfurt Intl Airport.

Help is appreciated Jude

We will be traveling from Munich, Germany to Leiwen, Germany. We need information on the best type of transportation to get to Leiwen from Munich, as my husband doesn't want to drve the 5 hour trip by car.

Hi there: In a few weeks, I'll travel from Karlsruhe (after the meeting there) to Mmainz and Wiesbaden, and the question, is, which order would you recommend me? Mainz-Wiesbaden or Wiesbaden-Mainz? Something absolutely essential to consider is that I must be at Frankfurt Airport no later tha 5 pm that day. Thanks! PS: Should I visit just one city, and, which one? (in case you consider it's too much in just one day)
Hello: My husband is disabled and we travel with his service/guide dog. In the USA, Federal law guarantees access to my husband and the dog anywhere to which the "general public" is admitted...restaurants, hotels, etc. Is there such a aw in Germany? Or are service dogs generally admitted without a problem to such places as restaurants, pensions, "zimmer frei" type accomodation? Thanks for any advice!
Hey everyone, I'll be in Budapest for a week at the end of this month and I'd like to go to Trier. Anyone has any information regarding the cheapest way of route, regardless of the time spent on the way? I am in no hurry, so I'd take slow trains too. Thanks a bunch, Peter.
I am not sure if I need to take a taxi to my hotel or whether I can walk from Boppard raiway station. It is the hotel Rheinlust near the autofähre. It looks fairly close on the map but I can't see how to cross the main road by the station. Thank you.

I am coming to visit Saarburg in early June and as I fly into Luxembourg, I would like to find out the best way to travel from Luxembourg to Saarbug
Hi My son is coming for tryouts being held at the athletic club. Anyone know the easiest way from the airport Frankfurt (FRA) to the club? Thanks!
THank you for your previous informative answers. We have now booked our air ticket and now require a little more info based on our times. This is how it goes. We arrive in Frankfurt on a Saturday morning at 10:15am. This will be used as a quick stop over before heading back home in order to have a quick experience on the Rhine. As you can see we have just about two days in Germany. My thoughts are to leave our luggagein a locker (or the like - please advise) overnight at the airport, travel down the Rhine on a ferry, stay over in a little town for one night and then take the train back to Frankfurt the next day: 1. (a) I know that FRakfurt airport is a massive airport. How do we find out ahead of time which terminal we will be arriving in from Milan and which terminal we will depart from to fly to South Africa? I presume this will help us as to wher we can leave our luggage. Could you help with this?leave our luggage over night at the airport so that we do not have to lug it around the two days and have only a small overnight bag each. Is it safe to do this and what would the cost be? (b) Do you know if it is possible to check in our luggage on the Saturday when we arrive for our flight on Sunday - do you know if this is possible? 2. I believe that the ferry schedules have not yet been released for the beginning of June. WOuld you recommend that we sightsee in Frankfurt at all or should we head of straight to Mainz or Bingen to start our Rhine ferry ride? 3 Do you recommend that we we go to Mosel (do we have time)? 4. Do you recommend that we make some stops to view some castles or little towns along the way? If so which places and how long will we require at each stop? 5. Which town do you recommend we stay over one night before catching the train back to Frankfurt. Should Koblenz be our last stop and should we stay over here? 6.Is it better to do the ferry ride and train trip on the same day and stay the night in Frankfurt instead and explore a little of Frankfurt before our departure? 7. Is it worth seeing a little of Frankfurt or should we just stick to the Rhine? 8. Would you recommend taking a non-stop train ride back to Mainz, Bingen or Frankfurt or should we stop over somewhere along the way? If so which stops do you recommend? What lines and approx costs. 9. Is there any additional information you can give me on the Rhine, ferrys, weather, schedules, tours or sites that might help or that you can recommend etc So excited. I look forward to hearing back from you soon.
We are flying through Frankfurt and would like to stop over in this city just to take the cruise along the rhine from Mainz to Koblenz. We really only have either one or two days at the most to explore this part of the river before we head back to Frankfurt before we fly out of Germany. (we still need to schedule our flight out based on whether we will spend one or two days). We are hoping to arrive in Frankfurt by the latest midday on the 1st or 2nd of May. We would then either need to stay over one night in Frankfurt or rather in town (or koblenz) and then return to Frankfurt the next day to ensure our flight departure in the evening. I think the latter would be a better option. Please can you assist us with the following: • How long does it take from Frankfurt to Mainz/bingen and what method of transport would you recommend we take to get us there? Aprox costs would be great. • How often to the ferries leave from Mainz and return? • How long would it take us to get from Mainz to Koblenz without getting off? What about if we decided to do some of the other KD river options? Could you advise how these time slots would work and could you provide us with some sort of time itinerary to work with? Essentially we would like the opportunity to hop on and off the ferry to visit one or two spots along the way, however I'm not sure if we have the time to do this and how the ferries actually work and the frequency of it all. * What about going to the river Mosel. I believe it s gorgeous. Would we have time to go there? * What time do the ferries start and stop operating? • Do we purchase our tickets on line, through you or at the port on the day? • What are the costs for the day tickets • Now what is the best way to return back to Frankfurt, ensuring that we get back to Frankfurt on time to catch our flight out. (we would need to be back by no later than 5pm. • Would you suggest catching the boat back to Frankfurt or catching the train to ensure we get back on time I know there area lot of questions, however your advice and expertise would be greatly appreciated. On one other note. If we had to travel from Amsterdam to Mainz (or Mainz to AMsterdam). How long would that trip take and is it at all possible without going on an expensive boat cruise. If anyone can offer a good alternative to overinflated prices or a smaller type private cruise this would be most helpful. If this is an option, please bare in mind that we will have quite a considerable amount of baggage so this would be the determining factor. I look forward to hearing back from you.
Where can I buy a monthly tram pass?
For those of you who may recognize my other recent posts...planning is moving along well and I am developing a much more flexible itinerary...I will update those other threads when I have some real meat to contribute... BUT ON TO THE TOPIC OF THIS THREAD: I am looking for some suggestions on where I might be able to accomplish the scenario described below. It is this very scenario that, despite all the other things that can be done from Munich to Amsterdam and all parts in between, will make my satisfaction of our family trip complete. It will be a solo adventure, as my kids and wife do not find heavy physical strain as being a part of legitimate fun. On the contrary, I find the harder I work while having fun, the more meaningful the fun is. The rest of the trip will be about eager togetherness, and promoting the satisfaction of my other family members. But this one morning will be "about me". So here it is: slap a daypack on my back (inside this pack: various hard cheeses, some smoked meat, some heavy bread, lots of fancy mustard, water, flask of scotch, a nice cuban cigar, plus everything one needs to have a safe and happy walk through the mountain side). At the crack of dawn I start climbing up a trail-less-travelled from the valley floor, probably along a trail with some history I can research before hand. As I climb quitely up the trail I come across various creatures that are active at this time of day (deer etc) they dash off as they see me on my quiet approach. They disappear into the mist that commonly exists on such hill slopes as dawn grows lighter. As I climb higher the trees start to thin out and I come across a clearing at the crest of one of the hills. Its later in the morning now. Since I left so early, I am now a little hungry even though its not quite noon yet. This particular clearing just so happens to contain the recognizable ruins of a dilapidated minor castle or roman-structure that has been largely ignored in favor of other sites. None-the-less, I have some knowledge of the place due to research done previously at home. As I explore the place I am able to apply that knowledge to gain a much deeper appreciation of the structure, of the region, of the history. Because of this I form a memorable bond with this place. I sit down on a rock in the clearing, pull out my food items and fashion a brunch-like picnic. During the meal I start to enjoy a little bit of the scotch (something nice, but more like a sherry-aged scotch as opposed to a smokey-peat scotch. I finish this off with more of the scotch and the cigar. All the time I am able to gaze down on the river valley as it comes alive. Further, since I am on the crest of the hill I can appreciate a 360 vista of the region and neighboring regions. I descend back down the trail, meet up with my family and the family holiday continues. But along the trail, even though it is mostly secluded, I come across a few chance people who, either locals or tourists, understand the same vision-quest I and they are having. We chat casually and slightly longer than briefly. But it is because of this chance encounter, we ultimately make a connection that lasts through long distance communication and the beginnings of a fellow-traveler-friendship begins. Of course, that's the over-idealized version of this. But it is this "connection with the earth" that what makes my spirit soar. Mix in the relevance to human history, and with the personal discovery of someone of similar spirit that make my trip as pinnacle as ever a trip could be. As you can imagine, none of this scenario will just happen without some forethought. Much of this scenario will only happen based on luck. But without preparation, luck can never be. So, assuming my family and I are spending 6 nights (July 31-Aug 5) in the Rhine region, broken up between Bacharach, Cochem and Koblenz. We chose these spots largely due to their location. Strategic planning will place us such that we can explore all of the Rhine middle section and the Mosel while leaving us in Koblenz on the last day when we need to depart towards Koeln. Further, this will reduce the amount of travel time by changing the "home-base" as we progress along (thus increasing "do time"). There you have it...once again I type too much. But, does anyone have any suggestions where I might find a nice "nature walk" in this region that satisfies some of these "expectations"? 1 secluded/less-traveled 2 somewhat strenuous 3 nice view at the top 4 maybe a minor ruins at the top that hasn't been tourist-ized or is off bounds due to heritage research 5 still known by people of like mind/locals and so isn't totally deserted I've done some research on line but nothing really seems to come up. But then again, by the very nature of the "expectations" it seems obvious that this place would elude me on internet search. I think I need to ask people who have been there, or maybe have/are still living there.... As always, I do warmly welcome and greatly appreciate all feedback Cheers John
Hi, I am due to start an exchange next month in the University of Kaiserslautern. I am arriving on a Friday evening at 19.25 and I need to make my way from Frankfurt-Hahn to Kaiserslautern. I cant seem to find a bus directly from the airport to Kaiserslautern. Would anyone be able to give me an idea what the best way to make this journey is ?
Looking for a bus line that will go from Trier to Paris then Back in May of 2012. Have looked at the trains which I can do with a change or lay over but I am not happy with the pricing. Will be spending three days in Paris.
My husband and I will be posted in Landstuhl for one month in 2012. I will be traveling quite a bit during that time, with my husband joining me on weekends. Our intended destinations are of course Germany and western France. What is the best mode of transportation? I would prefer not to drive. Is there a bus or train station in town that connects to other towns/cities? Thanks!
We are hoping to pick up a cruise in August, and rather than sit on a coach for hours from the UK we were wondering how easy it was to travel by train from Brussells to Andernach. Where is the nearest station, and do we have to change etc , any advice would be welcomed, thank you
Please, could you tell me how can I get Brussels from Trier? What sights or short trips do you recomend me from Trier (two days staying)? Thanks a lot. Jose
Cannot find a forum for the above village. Would appreciate any suggestions for a weeks relaxing holiday in the Mosel/Rhine area - like the look of Treis Karden but would be interested to have other suggestions for location. We are very keen walkers, using public transport - we like the idea of taking short boat/day trips to small villages or countryside, also walking in nature/countryside areas. Suggestions for self contained accomodation would also be appreciated - will be there April 2012.
I will like to know if there are two eisenberg(bavaria) and eisenberg( rheinland).
Hi everyone, I was recently fined 40 euros for not having my ticket. I actually had my German university ID (which counts as a train pass), but I had lost it that day. Seriously, I would not lie about this. However, the guard didn't speak English and shouted at me, "In Germany, WE SPEAK DEUTSCH". I still tried to explain my situation in vain. I gave him my name, date of birth, and temporary address in Germany. My question is, will this follow me back to the states? I don't see how they can do anything about this since they don't have my credit card info or anything. My address is Germany was unofficial, so it's not connected to my name. Also, I'm leaving in a couple days so even if they mailed something to my German address, I would never receive it. I'm a poor college student and I did nothing wrong. I really don't want to pay this stupid bill. What should I do? Thanks for your help :)
Looking for Bacharach lodging recommendations, thanks!
