      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.

      Car rental return - Munich

      Munich Sep 5, 2015 at 6:30 AM

      I will be renting the car at airport to travel to Neuschwanstein castle and then to Salsburg. On return, I want to spend some time in Munich city. Earlier, I thought of the option to return back the rental car at airport and then taking train to the city. Looking at the google map suggestion, returning at train station may save me driving time as well as time to use public transport. I want to know if driving in Munich city is easy and then I will not spend too much time stuck in traffic OR is it the best option to return to airport and take a train to the city.

    • 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

      Donauwörth Sep 12, 2015 at 10:05 AM

      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

    • Garmisch-Partenkirchen area location to stay?

      Garmisch-Partenkirchen Sep 19, 2015 at 2:03 PM

      Hi GaPa experts,
      Please recommend me location to stay in Garmisch-Partenkirchen area. I just spent couple of hours searching for the answer, but there are so many conflicting opinions! We are two couples – no kids, will have a rental car and planning to stay for 5 nights in this area, probably rent a house/apartment. What town would you recommend to stay? We’d like to drive around, visit couple of castles, enjoy scenery, go for 2-3 hour hikes, etc. At night we’d like to go out (would be nice within walking distance) and have at least some selection of restaurants/bars.
      Thanks a lot in advance!

      Christmas markets within reach from Regensburg

      by Kathrin_E Online Now Oct 23, 2012 at 10:42 AM

      Planning this year's Advent trip, I'd like to ask you guys for a good recommendation for one more day trip from Regensburg.
      Ok so here is the plan:

      Base camp is Regensburg for probably 5, maybe 6 nights. Travel time is mid December, either around 2nd or 3rd Advent weekend.

      - 2 days for Regensburg itself and its 4 markets.

      - Day trip to Passau

      - Day trip to Landshut

      - Day trip to - ??? I would like a small city or a town (not Nürnberg please, have been more than once, and not Munich) with a nice Christmas market plus something to see in the town centre. Max. one hour by train from Regensburg. Preferably a place where I have not yet been - that points to directions Oberpfalz and Niederbayern and anything North and East/Southeast of Regensburg. Straubing? Weiden? Amberg?

      Any ideas and experiences?

      We plan on visiting for a few days in late May. I have checked various weather websites, and know to expect rain. But what is typical, if there is such a thing? Is it likely to rain all day, or are there periods of rain and then clearing? Is the rain generally heavy, or relatively light? Frequent thunderstorms? Thanks for trying to answer what may be an impossible question!
