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? We plan to visit the Concentration Camp, a Beer Hall and a Castle.

      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?

    • Patron Saint of Drinking?

      by AngieAllendorf Online Now Nov 13, 2009 at 7:18 PM

      Has anyone heard of Marburg's "Patron Saint of Drinking"? Supposedly in the old town pubs there is a bust relief of him, but not sure which ones. He's also known as "Fraele" and "Bleichenrat". He died in 1938 but there were articles still written about him as of 1987. His name was Georg Allendorf; he is my husband's great-grandfather. I've been to Germany many years ago and loved it. My family is thinking of a trip to Marburg someday. There are supposedly many stories about Georg. Does anyone have any recommendations on how and where to find a local guide (who speaks English) who knows the town's history, and could take us around town and to the pubs? This is a great site--love the pics and the info. Any help or suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.
