I will be in Berlin to celebrate this event and am looking for suggestions of exhibits, happenings, neighborhoods and the like. I have checked the standard sites but am hoping locals will share a few secrets!
After my arrival to Chemnitz in days i have to go to berlin. Are there usual journeys to berlin? This is the first I go and I'm alone. Is it easy to travel there? Are the taxies and busses offered to take me from home to Chemnitz hbf safe? I'm staying in Berlin for a day, is it easy to get trains going back to Chemnitz? I'm waiting for your replies and help, please
Planning 2 separate day trips (with wife) to Bamberg and Rothenburg from the Leipziger Platz area of Nuremberg.
Originally, I planned to use my DB 'twin pass' to each destination, since the cost for the added days is much cheaper than individual train tickets for the 2 of us. However, now I see another option: The VGN Day Ticket (price level 10). According to the VGN web site, the one ticket costs €17.50 and is good for the both of us, that is, it is a 'twin' ticket in our case.
(1) Can someone from the Nuremberg area confirm that the VGN Day Ticket includes both Bamberg and Rothenburg and that it would indeed cost us only €17.50 per day for BOTH of us?
(2) I understand from the site that the VGN Day Ticket includes all travel on the Nuremberg area U-bahn, S-bahn, and buses, so that with that ticket we can both travel from Leipziger Platz to the Nuremberg Hbf, then to Bamberg or Rothenburg, return to Leipziger Platz in Nuremberg, then go out for that same evening somewhere in Nuremberg - all costing us only €17.50?
(3) If the above is correct, where can one buy the VGN Day Ticket? At any U- or S-bahn station?
(4) Getting to Rothenburg by train is somewhat of a nuisance and inefficient, as one has to transfer TWICE for such a short journey. Is there an alternate public transport way to get there (e.g., bus) which is direct and also included in the VGN Day Ticket?
I thank you very much.
Next year, we're having a bachelor party planned in Düsseldorf. I've noticed Düsseldorf has much to offer, so making a decision where to go is hard :)
What are the best clubs in town (music: house, dance - Tomorrowland-ish music ;) )
What are some neat restaurants to go to?
What cool activities can you do in Düsseldorf (like paintballing, karting etc.)?
Also looking for a nice place to stay (house for 8 people or nice hotels) and a limoservice :)
Any tips are welcome ;)
Thanks in advance!
I have 1 days in Nuremberg and we were thinking of visiting either Bamberg or Wurzburg on 1 /2 of the day.
What you suggest is the most worth to visit in mid of Feb.
Hello VTers! After a wonderful winter holiday on the island of Sylt last year, my wife and I are planning to visit a North Sea destination again this year. The approximate time will be one week between 28 December 2014 and 4 January 2015. We'd love to go to a different island this year, so I'd be grateful for recommendations. Sylt provided us with a few nice sights (traditional villages, lighthouses), lots of nature and very nice beach walks as well as the nicest sauna I've been to. Is something similar to be found on the Lower Saxonian islands? Which one would you prefer for a week-long stay, i.e. do they provide enough things to see for that time in winter? Or does it make sense to change the island halfway through the holiday? A first browse of the islands' websites made them seem quite similar... Also, is it recommendable to do a quick stopover in the northern Netherlands or does that take too much time?
Any help is highly appreciated!
Thanks in advance,
Planning 2½-3 days based in Nuremberg during the first week of December.
One day planned for Bamberg, one day for Rothenburg and one day for Nuremberg.
The impression I get from travel forums is the the Nuremberg Xmas market is one of the better (and bigger) ones in Germany. There are also Xmas markets in Bamberg and Rothenburg.
My question is: From personal experience, would you try to spend as much time as possible at the Nuremberg market at the expense of time in the Bamberg and Rothenburg markets? That is, should I leave Bamberg/Rothenburg for Nuremberg relatively early (15:00-16:00) after seeing their respective markets, in order to have more time at the Nuremberg market? I know the Nuremberg market is open until 21:00. How would you divide your time?
