We will be traveling by pubic transportation until March 17th is there a specific train ticket we should purchase for the 3 days that could save on costs?

      Stasi Museum and cameras

      Berlin Sep 25, 2016 at 9:18 AM

      Just a follow up to my Stasi question a few weeks ago. I assume that one is allowed to take a camera in, as I've seen so many (obviously not iPhone) photo's from there. Will I be allowed a camera bag? Or will I have to leave that at the entrance?

      Postcards and Stamps

      by JHR Online Now Aug 26, 2013 at 4:05 PM

      If all goes to plan, I will be on Helgoland next Wednesday. I would like to send my 'holiday postcards' to friends and family from Helgoland. I suspect there will be quite a few shops selling postcards, but...Questions: Given its special status, does Helgoland issue its own stamps, or 'special issue' decorative stamps? And will I have to locate the post-office on the island in order to buy stamps?

      Day-trip to Helgoland, by catamaran from Hamburg

      by JHR Online Now Jul 1, 2013 at 3:46 PM

      I will be flying into Hamburg first week in September: my plan is to spend two days in Hamburg before heading off on a bummel, either North (Luebeck, Kiel, Schleswig) or East (Ratzeburg, Schwerin, Wismar). Anyway, while in Hamburg I would like to take an excursion to Helgoland. I can find the website for services available and prices (, but I can't see the 'small print', i.e. terms and conditions. Questions: Is the catamaran service ever cancelled due to bad weather? If it is cancelled, can you get a refund? (because I could not change my day of travel). If I don't pre-book my tickets on-line, what are the chances that the catamaran service (on Tues 3rd Sept) could sell out? Assuming I get to Helgoland...I have read about its duty-free status. Can you buy alcohol, specifically decent aquavit, there? Any problems taking duty-free products from Helgoland into Germany and then back to the UK? Thanks for any advice.

      When is the best time for swimming at Helgoland's beaches? Did you find the water pleasant and warm enough for swimming?

      Best regards,
