Hi, I am heading off to stay in Ratzeburg for some months and want to hire some gear for a few weeks travel in January. Don't want to cart my suitcase when I will be moving around every day, so any info on whether you can hire a proper, good-sized rucksack would be useful.
If all goes to plan, I will be on Helgoland next Wednesday. I would like to send my 'holiday postcards' to friends and family from Helgoland. I suspect there will be quite a few shops selling postcards, but...Questions: Given its special status, does Helgoland issue its own stamps, or 'special issue' decorative stamps? And will I have to locate the post-office on the island in order to buy stamps?
I am now definitely making my excursion to Helgoland. Two 'ferry related' questions.
1) I have gone online and booked my tickets on the Catamaran (or Katamaran in German). I had to book specific seats on the outward and inward journeys. Does this mean you have to stay in your seat during the voyage? For over 3 hours?! Or are you allowed to get up and move about?
2) How does the local ferry between the main Heligoland island and Düne 'work'? I can't find anywhere that gives you a price, or tells you how often it operates...
Now considering a trip to Kiel, with intention of seeing the U-Boot-Ehrenmal at Heikendorf, and the U-Boot Museum at Laboe. I've found this map of the public transport network http://www.netzplan-kiel.de/ - so I think I should be taking buses 100 and 101. If you can confirm this, and tell me how often these services run, I would be very grateful. Also, are F1 and F2 public ferry services? Is getting to Heikendorf and Laboe by ferry a viable option?
I will be flying into Hamburg first week in September: my plan is to spend two days in Hamburg before heading off on a bummel, either North (Luebeck, Kiel, Schleswig) or East (Ratzeburg, Schwerin, Wismar). Anyway, while in Hamburg I would like to take an excursion to Helgoland. I can find the website for services available and prices (helgoline.frs.eu/booking/ind...), but I can't see the 'small print', i.e. terms and conditions. Questions: Is the catamaran service ever cancelled due to bad weather? If it is cancelled, can you get a refund? (because I could not change my day of travel). If I don't pre-book my tickets on-line, what are the chances that the catamaran service (on Tues 3rd Sept) could sell out? Assuming I get to Helgoland...I have read about its duty-free status. Can you buy alcohol, specifically decent aquavit, there? Any problems taking duty-free products from Helgoland into Germany and then back to the UK? Thanks for any advice.
How far is Frankfurt Airport from Marienthal (in particular, Haus Elisabeth)? By car? By train? By bus?

We will depart on a saturday in July at about 17.00 in Kiel and have to be in Copenhagen next day at 15.30 to reach the ferry to Oslo. There are two possibilities: by ferry from Puttgarden or the longer way over the Great Belt Bridge. We prefer the ferry but heard about heavy traffic before Puttgarden. When is the best time to go by ferry, saturday evening or late sunday morning? As we travel by camper van it doesn’t mind where we spend the night.
Hello, we are going on vacation this christmas/newyear. When are the shops and restaurants open?
I am planning to go to Lübeck for a weekend in either November or December (for the Christmas Market).
While I am there I would like to attend a classical concert of some sort (preferable a certain Mozart mass). I had hoped to go to a church concert, but a regular venue will also do.
Can anyone help me with the calendar of events for various church concerts (or other venues) in Lübeck?
I can't seem to find much specific info on the net.
Hello! I would like to know is it possible to get by train or S-Bahn from Luebek's airport to Heide?
I will be in Kiel a few hours arriving with the Oslo ferry on Wednesday. Can anyone recommend a nice biergarten or pub to enjoy a mid-day beer within walking distance of the ferry terminal?
This friday afternoon we will be arriving at Lubeck by car. We have booked a hotel in the historic center and they do have a parking lot, but we are questioning whether it is possible to drive all the way into the historic center a friday afternoon without beeing stuck for hours.
Is it better to leave the car at the park and ride parkinglot and take the free shuttle to the center?
I will be tarvelling to Lubeck in next few weeks.

Plan to take a train from Hamburg to Lübeck in early May and stay overnight. How far is Lübeck from Hamburg? Any interesting centrally located places to stay overnight?
We are going from Rödby (sorry,there´s no right kind of ö in Finnish keyboard) to Puttgarden.We are coming from Norrköping in Sweden at that day,and might be a good idea to stay over night somewhere there.Is Puttgarden a nice town?Or is there something nicer close to it?Our next stop will be Hann,but it might be too much driving for one day.
Or maybe we should stay at Denmark-side?
One opinion is to stay at Köpenhagen,even if we were thinking of doing it on our way back home.So I´m now thinking of other possibilities.
Can someone tell me what would be the best way to get from Hamburg airport to Kiel & then to the port to pick up a cruise on Sept. 4th. Also any idea of costs would be greatly appreciated.
What is the best way to get to the cruise terminal in Kiel from Hamburg.

looking for the best way from lubeck airport to hamburg city ie trains/buses
I read somewhere that there are 2 seperate tariffs; DB Bahn's if you take a IC or EC train or SH's tariff if you use a local train. I want to take the local train. Is there a special ticket that I should ask for (so I don't get the fast train)? How much does the local train to Hamburg cost? Is there a special ticket where local transportation in Hamburg is included because I have to continue with bus to my final destination.
I would really appreciate any help because I feel quite confused at the moment!
My husband and I and our two children (ages 2 and 7) will be traveling to Kiel for a family event. We had originally thought that the trip would be in the warmer months, but we have just learned we will be there in January! This brings up many questions for us:
-what are some good things to do with children in the area at that time?
-is it possible to rent a vacation apartment in midwinter?
In the past, we have flown into Hamburg and taken the train to Kiel. This time we are considering coming into another city -- Copenhagen, Berlin, Amsterdam, Munich, or even Paris -- instead. Any thoughts on this? Which of these cities would be most appealing and child-friendly in January? Thank you!
We are going to get a train from Dusseldorf to Kleve to visit the cemetary as my husband's uncle is buried there. We want to leave flowers on behalf of the family in Australia.
