      Nuremberg Xmas Market and Beginner Sking

      Bavaria Sep 30, 2015 at 6:58 AM

      Greetings forum. We are planning to go to Nuremberg to experience the Xmas market from around Dec 16th. 3 kids ages 8, 10 and 13. My questions are:
      (a) I have the options of direct flights to Munich, Frankfurt or Berlin. From the map it looks like Munich or Frankfurt might be the closet to then get to Nuremberg. Please advise which will be the best airport to fly into out of the 3 options for onward fastest/efficient transportation to Nuremberg - taxi or rail.

      (b) After 3 days of the market which we think should be enough, we are thinking of combining this with a "learn to ski" vacation. Is there any recommendations nearby Nuremberg that might work esp in Dec month? I have heard of persons combining Nuremberg market with sking in Austria so not sure if learn to ski options are available in environs. Recommendations on Austria welcome as well if better.

      Halloween, Allerheiligen, Allerseelen

      Land Baden-Württemberg Sep 18, 2015 at 4:15 AM

      I will be in Freiburg 30th Oct - 2nd Nov. I've just realised that this covers Halloween, All Saints and All Souls Day. I suspect (to be honest, I hope) that Badners don't celebrate Halloween in the same tacky(!) way as the USA and latterly the UK. In fact, isn't the Germans' use of 'Halloween' Denglish? What was wrong with 'Vorabend vom Allerheiligenfest'?! Question: On Nov 1 and Nov 2 do any traditional events relating to Allerheiligen and Allerseelen take place in Südbaden? Would need to be accessible by train or bus from Freiburg.

    • Stag Weekend questions

      Munich Sep 13, 2015 at 4:57 AM


      I’m going with a group of 20 males to Munich next month on a stag (after Oktoberfest ends) and have been reading it’s tough with bouncers and stuff there which is annoying but what can you do, we will try our best. The rough plan is touristy beer halls evening and then Schwabing one night, Haidhausen the other night and probably Kultfabrik late probably both nights… does these sound feisable with the size group we are?

      We won’t be dressing in stupid outfits or anything, we’re all aged between 30 – 34 and won’t be walking up to doors in a huge group or anything.

      Also a couple of other questions if any helpful sorts out there might know –

      Where would be the hottest curry restaurant in Munich? I want atomic levels of spice if possible, ghost chili curry sort of thing.

      Is there any hope whatsoever of getting tickets to Bayern Munich v Koln FC around the grounds on the day for a reasonable price (unlikely I know)

      We’re into music-wise, rock n roll, rock, indie, Britpop sort of stuff, are there any particular bars, pubs, clubs we should aim for, or is it all just electro dance stuff?

      I’m trying also to find an obese stripper for the stag, like the fatter the better, they call them blubbergrams in Ireland and roly-poly strippers in the UK, for an idea of what I’m on about,  is there anyone or anywhere I could contact to book this for the stag? All I can find is regular strippers but that won’t do..

      Thanks for any guidance!

      Stop enroute

      We plan to be traveling by train from Nördlingen to Augsburg next spring. There is a transfer point at Donauwörth, which appears to be a pretty nice town for a visit. I was thinking of a 3 hour stop just to get a quick look at the town. Does anyone know if there are luggage lockers at the train station? Is there any reason why this would not be a reasonable plan? Thanks for any help. Gary

      Not too noisy German restaurant for a Friday evening

      Cologne Sep 26, 2015 at 2:00 PM


      Can anyone recommend a not too noisy German restaurant in Cologne's city centre/old town for a small VT meeting.
      Most of the typical brewing houses get quite noisy on a Friday evening, so that a good talk isn't possible anymore.

      I have been for a quiet a few times to this place:

      which is nice when one can sit outside in the courtyard, but as the interior is quite small it gets very noisy in there.

      So all recommendations are welcome.

      Hi all,

      I'd appreciate any advice on where to watch the final of the Eurovision song contest tomorrow evening (18th May). Are there any places (eg. cafe, sports bar, restaurant) in Potsdam which will be showing this event? We are visiting Potsdam this weekend and would love to get a glimpse of this year's final but the accommodation we'll be staying at doesn't have a TV... Any advice would be much appreciated!

      I was hoping that someone might have a recommendation for a good bike tour company in Potsdam? Is biking a good way to see the city in a day? Would renting bikes and touring around on our own make good sense as another option?

      Hi! I am probably visiting Postday with a one day trip from Berlin on Aug 31. I think the easiest way is to take the train to Potsdam Hauptbahnhof. Does the same train stop also in Potsdam Sanssouci Bahnhof? Otherwise, is there any public transportation from Potsdam Hauptbahnhof to the biggest attractions?

      Potsdam queries

      by Graceful Online Now Nov 12, 2005 at 8:10 PM

      Hey VT Forums, Long time no see!

      Well, here's my newest travel conundrum; I'll be visiting Potsdam and Berlin next weekend (mostly Potsdam, as thats where my friend/SO/whatever we are... is living at the moment) and i have a few questions:

      I am flying into Schönfeld airport, arriving at around 16:15...
      1) how strict are Schengen area customs and how long will it take me to get to the bus stop?
      2) can anyone comment on Easyjet's punctuality? and their weight limit? (I've had lots of luck with Ryanair... even if i was over, they would still send my bag through)

      various VBB Info
      3)will it be easier for me to get to Potsdam by train and then bus or take the bus directly?
      4) will an Italian University student qualify for the student discount (7day ticket) or price reduction on the daily ticket? I need the Potsdam ABC fare, and am trying to see which option will end up being cheaper. Also, this one ticket (Potsdam ABC) will be good for getting around Potsdam AND Berlin, correct?

      5) Gerrem wrote about Potsdam Castle Night in the Sansousci gardens; anyone know when this event occurs?
      (link Potsdam Nightlife )

      5) any packing tips (besides gloves, scarves, and a really warm coat as said by my host)?

      6) heard about boat rides on the lakes; can anyone give me any more information on those (or link me to where i could get more information)?

      Danke Schoen!

      some things i want to see (my own random notes... if you have something special to add; feel free to add anything)
      Glienicker Bridge/Bridge of Unity
      Chinese Teahouse
