Question: for the one day we are in Koblenz, are there tours available to near by castles and view points that we can take? Or what do you recommend we do in Koblenz for one day?

      Strasbourg - Bingen - Rhine cruise

      Land Rheinland-Pfalz Mar 24, 2014 at 8:18 AM

      My wife and I would like to travel from Strasbourg to Bingen by train on May 30 to make a Rhine day cruise on May 31 from Bingen to Braubach or possibly Koblenz. We need to be in Dusseldorf on June 1,

      Our questions are:

      1. What's the best train/bus to take from Strasbourg if you know it to get to Bingen?
      (Should we buy the train and then cruise tickets beforehand?)

      2. What hotels would you recommend to stay in Bingen (2-3 stars are OK)?

      3. What boat should we take (we'll travel with 2 suitcases, will we be able to safely store them somewhere on the boat during the cruise or we'll have to return to Bingen to pick them from the hotel)?

      4. Where (what town/city) would you advise us to spend the evening/night of May 31st?

      Thank you for your time.

      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.


      PS: Should I visit just one city, and, which one? (in case you consider it's too much in just one day)

    • Germany DB Train Fine of 40 Euros

      by starryeyes828 Online Now Jul 23, 2011 at 6:03 AM

      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 :)

    • I just found out that I am moving to Mainz for a year! Please help!

      by Bcheesbro Online Now Jun 29, 2010 at 2:34 PM


      My wife and I are moving from the United States to Mainz this August. I will be teaching at the University of Mainz for one year. My wife hopes to find work upon her arrival. Unfortunately, neither of us speak German - though we are trying pick up enough to carry on conversations. I have a few questions and would greatly appreciate any insight you can provide.

      1. We have not yet found a place to live. I have been looking at furnished apartments online, but haven't found anything. Is it advisable to secure an apartment in advance without actually seeing it? Or is the furnished apartment market extensive enough that I should be able to find a place in the first two weeks that I am there?

      2. Also, what is a reasonable commute to the University? Meaning, if we don't have a car, is it onerous to commute from one of the out lying suburbs or even Wiesbaden?
      3. My wife and I hope to travel as much as we can while we are in Europe. We would like to see several places in Germany as well as Paris, Prague, Amsterdam, etc. What do you recommend as far as buying a Eurail pass or the Bahn discount cards? Is it something I should buy before I arrive?

      4. I am flying into Frankfurt. I will probably have three or four large bags with me. Should I try to take the train to Mainz or rent a car? I will be arriving early on a Tuesday morning after a fourteen hour flight.

      5. In case I wait to find a place until I get there, do you have any recommendations on a place to stay for the first two weeks while I try to find accommodations?

      6. Last one: Do you have any thoughts on my wife finding a job? She is a certified public accountant here in the states. She understands that it may be difficult to find work in her profession, so she is prepared to take (almost) any sort of job. She does not speak German.

      Thanks in advance to anyone who can provide assistance with these questions!
