    • Munich in March - Strongbeer Festival

      Munich Feb 22, 2015 at 10:45 AM

      My husband and I are traveling to Munich to land in the early morning on March 22. Our plan is to start off taking the train from Munich to Salzburg and do some sightseeing for the day then head off to ski the alps for a couple of days and return on Thursday to enjoy the Strongbeer festival to end our trip. Any suggestions on how we planned our trip? We figured the weekend would be best for enjoying the Strongbeer festival. Should there be any reservations made for tables at the different beer halls as they might get busy? Where do we find a list of interesting things going on during it? For example: strongman competition.

      We are open to any and all suggestions!

      Elbtunnel suggestions

      Hamburg Mar 2, 2015 at 2:22 AM

      I am going back to Hamburg in mid-May, for 5 days, having been persuaded by two former work colleagues (who have no German and have never visited Hamburg) to act as translator, organiser and guide. So this may be the first of a few questions...
      Last time I walked through the Elbtunnel, it was being refurbished and ther were no cars. I assume the work is now complete (correct?) and that we would be sharing the tunnel with cars. Anyway, has anyone any suggestions for what to do once you emerge from the tunnel ion the southern bank of the Elbe? Last time, I took in the view of the city across the river, walked past the various works entrances to Blohm + Voss, and looked for a memorial to the prisoners from Neuengamme who had worked as forced-labourers in the shipyards (I never found it. Does it exist? Where exactly is it?), My main question: Is there any 'route' back to 'central' Hamburg, involving a reasonable walk and/or public transport, other than a stroll back through the tunnel?

      Hi. This will be my first time to travel Europe. I'll be staying in Hemer for 6 weeks.

    • Itinerary question 1 week munich

      Germany Mar 1, 2015 at 8:42 PM

      We arrive MUC on a Sat around 3. Return 8 days later on a Sunday. Must see locations: Salzburg (Sound of Music). beautiful alpine villages and a couple of Ludwig's castles. Thinking of driving for most of trip. Probably need 2 days in Munich (historic area mainly), and 2 full days in Salzburg. Thinking we should keep Munich for the end of trip because otherwise we'd be there on a Sunday, when markets and shops are closed. So question is whether we should drive south to Fussen or east to Salzburg on arrival from overseas flight?
      All suggestions welcome! thank you!

      Taking a stroller in a Horse Carriage

      Schloss Neuschwanstein Feb 13, 2015 at 1:34 PM

      We will be visiting Neuschwanstein Castle with a 3 y.o. child in early May.

      The bus will not be available in these days due to some road maintenance.

      We will not take inside tour, only some Courtyard shots and up and down to the Bridge.
      Is there a possibility to bring a stroller in a Horse Carriage with us or our only option is to take a long walk uphill ?

      Question about Zugspitze roundtrip option

      Garmisch-Partenkirchen Feb 22, 2015 at 11:49 AM

      We will arrive to Eibsee by car and from there would like to take a cable car (Eibsee Seilbahn) up to the top straight away.
      Then, after spending some time at the summit, we will get down to the Zugspitzplat (by Gletscherbahn) for some lunch
      The question is - can we go backwards to Eibsee exactly vice versa?

      I mean the following route: Eibsee --> Zugspitze Summit --> Zugspitzplat --> Zugspitze Summit --> Eibsee (all by cable cars).

      Or our only option is a train only ? We are going with a little daughter, prefer not to boil her in a train full of tourists.

      The second question - Can we buy the tickets directly at Eibsee station or we have to visit Garmisch for a tickets ?

      Hi fellows,

      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.

      Train to Hamburg

      by SwedeSarah Online Now Aug 15, 2009 at 2:42 AM

      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!

      Wild Camping Ostsee

      by phil219 Online Now May 15, 2008 at 1:30 PM

      Hi together,

      some friends of mine and me, all from Hamburg, would like to go to the Ostsee one weekend and camp there one night. Preferably at the beach and NOT at a camp site. Is this possbile in your opinion?

      We know that it is not allowed, but it would still be nice to do it anyways. In other parts of the world noone would care ALTOUGH it is not allowed. This might be different here in Germany I guess. We'd just sit around in the dunes with a keg or case of beer and get the tents up around 1 hour before sunset and take them down again early in the morning. Has anyone done this before? Anyone been caught?

      We'd come by train and/or bus from Hamburg. Any recommendation where exactly at the Ostsee it might not be so crowded and therefore possible to do this from Saturday to Sunday one weekend?

      If all of you are strictly recommending NOT to do it, tell me. And which camp site/ where would you recommend then instead?

      Regards and Danke in advance,

      Toy shop

      by Sjalen Online Now Jan 25, 2005 at 1:05 PM

      Here goes...our six-year-old is a Playmobil addict :))) I cannot blame her since I was the same when little as I grew up with German cousins. Their bigger stuff are sooo expensive in Sweden and the range not that good, so we try to buy when in Germany. However, there are no grand tours of Bavaria planned for now and my aunt in Wolfsburg who sometimes buys things on request to bring for holidays has no real toyshop in WOB, just WalMart etc. So, seeing as Lübeck is one of our nearest German cities and a world heritage at that, we thought we would make it a UNESCO Playmobil weekend sometime soon :) Can you lot just assure me that Lübeck has a typical German, i.e. good, toyshop? Something like Obletter in Bavarian cities...? Swedish and Danish toyshops are either just the same old boring Scando-nationals or specialised "wooden toy" shops. Help a six-year-old unite with her dream jet airplane with additional luggage van and security scan :)

      How to cool down in / near Luebeck?

      Next week we will make a cycle-tour in Germany starting in Buechen (near Luebeck) along the Alte Salzstrasse to Luebeck and then to the North along the Baltic Sea. According to the weather forecast, it will be pretty hot. Thats why we want to figure out what are the possibilities for swimming. In Holland many lakes and rivers are advised not to swim in these days, because of botulism (the water is too warm and toxic algues are growing). Does anyone know in what lakes and beaches the water is clean enough to swim in near Luebeck? Does anyone know if there are any nude beaches near Luebeck? Are there any campsites with a swimming pool or so? Thanks for any help!
