    • Travel to Bernkastel from Trier

      We want to travel from Trier on Saturday 10 December to Bernkastel and back to Trier. Would like to be in Bernkastel around 13.00 hrs and leave at about 19.00. We shall be visiting the Christmas Market and hope to see the Advent Calendar at 17.30. I have found a return journey using just one bus (No 333) but that only seems to give us 2 -3 hours there. Other journeys seem to involve train, coach, and bus with various changes from one mode of transport to another. Would appreciate any advice and suggestions. Thank you!

      Die Romantische Straße in Bayern

      I am not sure if it is appropriate to ask these questions here but i would appreciate if you could answer them.
      I am planning to spend 4-5 days between Frankfurt-Munich in the beginning of February and cover the romantische strasse as well.
      1- Do you think it would be dangerous to do that tour in February as i was hoping to rent a car and drive?
      2- Where would you advice me to stop and spend the nights considering i would be stying for 5 nights?
      3- If i must buy return tickets which airport would be wise to start the tour?
      4- Any special advice that my kids would enjoy?

      Thank you so much

      Marburg vs Tübingen

      Germany Nov 7, 2016 at 4:35 PM

      In about a week we need to make flight reservations for Germany next spring. We plan to meet friends in Franken (Franconia) the first week in May and finish by flying out of München. We have 5 days before Franken to enjoy elsewhere. We are thinking of flying into Frankfurt and visiting Limburg, Marburg & Miltenberg, or flying into Stuttgart and visiting Esslingen, Tübingen & Ludwigburg. I believe that either area would be good but wonder if there is any special reason to visit either the last week in April. Your thoughts are appreciated. Thanks, Gary

Later moved to Hann Munden which we called home and in 1951 moved to Naples, Italy where we were boarded on a ship bound for Melbourne, Australia.
