      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.

    • Getting from aeroplane to ICE train, how long should I allow for?

      by globalmaestro Online Now May 30, 2015 at 12:03 AM

      Greetings all! I will arrive by plane to Stuttgart Airport (from Italy on Air Berlin), landing at 3pm. I plan to catch an S2 / S3 to Stuttgart Hbf, then catch an ICE train to Frankfurt Hbf.

      Should I reserve an ICE train ticket in advance to get the best price? If so, plane lands at 3pm, what departure time should I reserve my ICE train? Perhaps 7pm ICE train? (4 hours from landing to boarding ICE?) I wish to allow for any unforeseen plane / customs delays etc. I don't wish to rush too much!

      Thanks for any advice!

I have no German and so need to have a clear idea as to what to do.Where would I find a machine and would it also have English instructions.
      Many thanks

      Hi from Australia, on my next trip to Stuttgart I am considering staying at a Hotel in Filderstr. Moehringen but am getting 2 different instructions, the Hotel says U5 or U6 to Moehringen but the VVS says U12. I see there is new track. Has this changed the route? I would be coming from the HBF.

      From Stuttgart to Nufringen & Day hikes

      by Advnt Online Now May 12, 2014 at 10:12 AM

      Hi all,

      I have a couple questions regarding transport and hikes.

      1) I'll be landing in Stuttgart around 11am on Saturday July 19, then will need to get to Nufringen. Where can I get information on train schedules and prices? Should I purchase them ahead of time or buy them when I arrive? How long is the train ride? Do they have return tickets since I will need to return to Stuttgart to fly out?

      2) I'll be staying in Nufringen for one week and would like to do some day hikes while I'm there. Is the Black Forrest close enough for hikes, or should I just do hikes in the Nufringen area? Are there any recommended hikes I should do that's easily accessible by public transport? I'm happy doing up to about 20kms a day so any information on hikes up to that distance would be great.
