    • Visiting the Black Forest in March 2017

      Black Forest Sep 11, 2016 at 12:25 PM

      My wife and I are planning to tour the Black Forest area in March 2017.
      We were wondering if we may encounter any problems with bad weather at this time of year?
      We know that there may be snow. which is as far as i am concerned will be a bonus? (Will be travelling in a 4x4.)
      But will the normal tourist sites be open at this time of year?
      We are thinking of basing ourselves in the lake Titisee area, can anyone give us some tips on any must see things or thing we should do.
      Thanks in advance.

    • Help with Black Forest itinerary please !

      Black Forest Aug 1, 2016 at 2:10 AM

      Me and my husband with our two children 15 and 13 years old are heading to Black Forest area on 25th of October. We will arrive at Frankfurt airport from Berlin (by train) to receive our rented car then to our pre-booked farm house in a village near Linden (some where in the east of the forest).
      We will stay 5 nights and this is our primary itinerary. I need your expert suggestions of any modifications. We don't plan to hiking or dining but only to getting around to picturesque places, beautiful nature, culture and history. We also able to go to a lot of places in one day and love walking and not get tired quickly.

      25 October Frankfurt airport (13:30 pm) to the farmhouse in Tennenbronn Schramberg (3 hours drive) then walking in the area around the house in the forest.

      26 October driving in the early morning to Triberger falls then to Titisee lake then to Todtnau falls and the roller coaster and may be the cable cars.

      27 October driving in the early morning to Colmar (France) then to Strasburg.

      28 October driving to Europpark (for my kids).

      29 October, I am not decided yet to drive to Interlaken in Switzerland (3 hours drive) because I had been there before and my kids are not, they would love to see the high range mountains of the Alps. We can start the journey at 6 am arrive at 9 am then leave at 4 or 5 pm (sunset in this area is around 5pm)
      Or to go to Baden-Baden but if it is similar to Strasburg or Colmar they will be enough.

      I heard also of the open air museum I don't know where is it and on which day can be done. I would like also to see the coco clock making and may be a castle or something.

      I would appreciate all your comments and thanks in advance, I always relied on your suggestions in all my previous trips.

      Place to stay & weather in black forest

      Black Forest Jul 9, 2016 at 1:57 AM

      Hi all, We're looking into travelling to the Black Forest region in the first week of November. Firstly, what is the weather like at that time? Is it very likely to snow? As we are considering renting a car as we have a 4yr old and 2 yr old. We are not used to driving in snow so don't want it to be dangerous.

      Secondly, where would be a good place to stay as a base. We will be flying to Baden-Baden and definitely visiting Europa Park. Would one day be enough for this park? Would it be mid-term holidays at that time there? Other places are still a question mark (suggestions for good places for kids welcome!). The Triborg waterfalls seem nice too.

      I've seen some chalets/farms which seem nice to stay but not sure if they would be too far out. We prefer a self-catering place rather than hotel because of the kids. Animals on a farm would definitely go down well with them!! Many have also mentioned Freiburg as a good base.

      Thanks in advance!!

    • Need help locating a castle/restaurant/hotel

      Heidelberg Jun 21, 2016 at 8:21 PM

      In 1999 I was in Heidelberg and we stayed at a hotel that was out in the woods a bit. On the way to the hotel in our tour bus, we passed a large field - I think it was a winery field as I remember rows of grapes or something and behind this, up on the hill from the crops, was a building that looked like an old castle. It had a tower and a wall and a few buildings. Later that night, upon closer inspection there was a patio that was obviously a casual restaurant and we learned that there were people living there - as a Bed and Breakfast or a hotel.

      I'm trying to find where this was.... because I'm going back now, 17 years later and I'd love to see it again... any ideas??? :(

    • Stuttgart Oktoberfest - Do we need to reserve a table?

      Stuttgart Jun 14, 2016 at 11:00 AM

      A bunch of us are going to Stuttgart Oktoberfest this year and I'm in need of some guidance please!
      I've read that we need to book a table. Is that true? Cant we just go early, lay claim to a spot and stay there like you do at Munich's Oktoberfest? I don't mind having to reserve a table if the money can be put towards food or beer (does it?), otherwise 40-60 euro a head is quite expensive.
      Also I've read some old reviews saying we need to by food tickets if we wanna eat anything outside of junk food. Is that right and how does that work?
      Any feedback would be most appreciated!! Thanks in advance. Sonja

    • Planning to visit Schiller NationalMuseum in Marbach, Germany. Which hotel should we book?

      Marbach Nov 19, 2015 at 8:13 AM

      Dear sirs:

      My husband, Troy is a descendant of Friedrich von Schiller. Read more about it at

      We have made a special trip to come to visit Schiller Nationalmuseum in Marbach. It seems to us there are no hotel in Marbach, Germany and we found your hotel names “Friedrich von Schiller”.

      We are planning to take the train from Weimar to Marbach, Germany on Dec. 3, 2015, scheduling arrive at the train station about 7:30pm or 8:30 pm. We are going to Weimar first the day before.

      We are going to catch a train to Munich on Dec. 4, 2015 in the afternoon about 3:00PM

      I have done my research and find 2 hotels for now:

      1. Romantik Hotel Friedrich von Schiller

      Marktplatz 4+5, 74321 Bietigheim-Bissingen, Germany –

      We like this one because it is named after my husband's multi-grandfather. It looks very nice but a bit pricy.

      2. Hotel & Restaurant Goldener Pflug

      Dorfstraße 2-6 , 71636 Ludwigsburg, Germany –

      I think that this one is closer to the museum and price is better, including breakfast.

      If you have experience, can you recommend?

      1. What train station are they close to? Ludwigsburg? Bietigheim-Bissingen?

      2. How far is the train station to the hotels? Can we walk? How should we get to you?

      3. We have very limited time being there. We are concerned due to our very tight schedule, we probably should stay in Ludwigsburg or Marbach if there are hotels there. Can you recommend? What do you think?

      4. How far are they from Schiller Nationalmuseum? Can we take train to get there?

      5. How often is the train since we have to get back to the hotel to pick up our luggage to catch a train to Munich.

      6. If we decide to rent a car at your hotel when we arrive and return the car in Munich, Germany. Is it possible?

      Thank you very much.

      In God We Trust!

      Jesus’ Blessings,

      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.
