      Hotel Sorat vs Burghotel

      Nürnberg Nov 5, 2015 at 11:30 PM

      Dear Forum, we will be in Nuremberg for Christmas Market Dec 17th - 22nd, family of 5 with 3 kids 8, 10 and 13. We are trying to decide between Hotel Sorat and Burghotel. Both have great reviews. Hotel Sorat is closer to Xmas market and modern but offers only separate rooms while Burghotel offers 3 bedroom apartment living so everyone together.

      Just wondering if anyone has hand-on experience with both to help break the deadlock. Thanks

    • Tips for visiting "Neuschwanstein Castle"!

      Munich Nov 23, 2015 at 4:56 AM

      My husband and I will be visiting Marbach am Heckar on Dec. 3, 2015 and stay there for the night. We plan to leave the city in the afternoon of Dec. 4, 2015. Originally we plan to take the train from Marbach to Munich, trying to find a hotel near Marienplatz. Then we plan to join a day tour on Dec. 5, 2015 to visit Neuschwanstein Castle. We will be leaving Munich on Dec. 6, 2-015 and back to USA. I was just thinking whether we can take the train to the nearest hotel close Neuschwanstein Castle and stay there for the night. Then visit Neuschwanstein Castle for the morning and catch a train to get to Munich, Germany. Can any one suggest traveling ideas for our trip? Which way will be better to do? We don't speak German. If we rent a car, we are not familiar with the road and signs. So renting a car can be very challenging. Also, can you suggest what hotel to stay near "Neuschwanstein Castle" and hotels to stay in Munich, maybe close to Marienplatz? or good location that we can get a glimpse of Munich night life in the evening of Dec. 4 or Dec. 5, 2015?  Thank you in advance.

      Trains from Munich to Salzburg

      Munich Nov 3, 2015 at 6:51 AM

      Hi we (family of 5, kids 8, 10 and 13) are planning a trip to Nuremberg in Dec and plan to take train to Salzburg as well. From my research I will have to take a train in Munich to get to Salzburg. One of my friends just came back from a trip to Salzburg and said "she heard" there are delays and over-crowding on German trains due to the migration issue.

      Anyone had any experience with this to confirm or give a differing view?

      Also is Nuremberg where there are the Xmas markets the same as Nurnberg? Nurnberg is what I am getting when searching for flights, not Nuremberg. Thanks in advance

      Munich Nov 11, 2015 at 1:54 AM

      I will be in Munich for 5 days in April 2016. I'll be traveling with my family (3 kids: 9 month,2yrs and 4 year old). Would love to see the surrounding of Bavarian Village/Countryside. My plan is to rent a car and drive. I wish to stay outskirt of Munich. Any area to stay for recommendation? My plan also if possible to include a day trip to either Salzburg or Innsbruck. I also hope to visit Ingolstadt Village Outlet , Allianz Arena & Neuschwanstein‎ Castle. Other than this I welcome any suggestions as long it is picturesque villages or routes which is along the way where I can stopby. Thank you in advance

      Train Travel

      Munich Nov 4, 2015 at 8:14 AM

      Hi we are flying into Nuremberg for the Xmas markets and then one option is to travel by train from Nuremberg to Salzburg in Dec. There are 5 of us (with kids ages 8, 10 and 13) so at least 5 pieces of medium to large size luggage as you would check in a plane. Questions on this are:
      (a) What is the name or names of best trains to use from Germany to Austria.
      (b) is there anything like a family cabin or alternatively a first class section that can be booked
      © is there storage space for luggage on trains that would accomodate medium to large luggage. Overhead compartments will be too small
      (d) are there porters at stations to help with luggage as in an airport

      If that does not look convenient or hassle-free I'll have to research flying! Thanks

    • Munich in December 2015

      Munich Oct 31, 2015 at 9:41 AM

      Me and other 5 friends are travelling to Munich during the month of December for 7 days and we where planning some day trips to fill up our itinerary.
      We where planning to visit Berchtesgaden/ Eagle's Nest and while there also drop by to the Salt mines, do you think that's something doable in one day?
      Our second plan was to visit Rothenburg since we've heard it's quite a magnificent town. We've also been suggested to visit Regensburg/Mittenwald (Neuschwanstein Castle is out of the question since we've already been there).but we don't want to pack up our itinerary then miss the beauties of Munich.

      What are your suggestions? Which places are worth a visit and how is the best/ cheapest way to travel to these locations, is it worth it to rent a car since we also need to travel from airport to Munich and back? We're big fans of Christmas markets and anything related to it so your suggestions would be mostly welcome :).

      Train from Munich to Passau for First-timers

      by veerzaara Online Now Jun 17, 2012 at 2:02 PM

      I have never ever been on a train before, and my first train ride will be from the Munich main train station to Passau. I already have a voucher to get from the airport to the main train station, but I have absolutely no idea what to do once I am at the train station. How do I purchase a ticket? How do I get it validated? (I am told that I must do this before getting on the train.) Do I locate the train by its number or by the direction it is heading or both? Where do I put my luggage once on the train? ( I have one suitcase, which isn't heavy.) Are seats on the train numbered, or do I sit wherever? I assume that it will be announced when the train arrives in Freising. And then once at Freising, will it be easy to locate and get to the train to Passau? It seems from the printout from DB Bahn, that I will have only 9 minutes to change. Is this enough time? Sorry for all of the probably obvious questions, but as I have been searching online, all replies and answers seem to be directed to those who are very familiar with riding trains and being in a train station and not to those who, like me, don't have a clue! Thank you!

      We will depart Passau from a river cruise and are looking to take the train there to Linz. I would like to know how far it is from the ship docking point (Fritz-Schaffer Promenade)to the train station. Are taxi's readily available at the docking point to take to the train quickly. Our boat docks around 8:30am and it looks like the train gets into Passau at about 10am. Does it make sense to buy train tickets in USA before we leave next week or buy them at the train station? Once in Linz we will reboard the ship in the evening. Thank you.
