    • 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?

I don't plan on doing much hiking because of the time of year and because I'm nursing a small injury, but I'm open to the possibility if it's worth it. I will be traveling using public transit.

      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 9 hours ago

      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 :)))

      Dear travellers,

      I would like to visit the birthplace of Friedrich Nietzsche - a town called Roecken and also Naumburg, where he spent the most part of his life.

      A friend and I plan to take a train from Duesseldorf to Leipzig. Does anyone know of a good train or bus connection to Roecken and Naumburg from Leipzig? Would it make more sense to rent a car in Leipzig?

      I would like to visit:

      1. The village church and cemetery in Roecken
      2. Das Nietzsche-Haus, Weingarten 18, Naumburg
      3. Museums, cafes, bars, restaurants etc. in Leipzig (suggestions from the local tourist office)

      Any other "must-see"s whilst we are in these three cities - Leipzig, Roecken and Naumburg?
