      German style restaurant in general area of Ostbahnhof

      Berlin Aug 13, 2016 at 4:12 PM

      A group of six friends from different parts of the world will be meeting in Berlin next month.

      We are staying in the general area of Ostbahnhof station. (My partner and I are staying at the InterCity).

      What we are looking for is a German style restaurant where we can book a table for six people on a Saturday night. Doesn't have to be "fine dining" but a happy place for friends to meet over good food - and a few beers!

      We can travel by public transport if necessary.

      Suggestions would be most welcome.

    • Food/carousel/sing-along in Berlin?

      Berlin Jul 28, 2016 at 2:59 PM

      Could you please give me some recommendations for
      a)a good streetfood (some kimchi, pulled pork burgers, burrito, bratwurst etc)? I'm just looking for something interesting to grab for lunch/late dinner and I am wondering what you usually treat yourself with.
      b) are there any sing along piano bars (like NYC)? Or something fun Germans would do in the evening.
      c) does Berlin we happen to have carousel rides for adults? I kind of miss those.

      Train; Ulm to Rüdesheim; Koblenz -Aachen; Aachen-Düsseldorf are rail pass /saver tickets worth it?

      Germany Aug 11, 2016 at 2:48 PM

      We are meeting some friends in Germany (who already have first class German rail passes) for their trip. And will be going with them by first class train from Ulm to Assmannshausen/Rüdesheim; (cruising by KD Line to Koblenz) then Koblenz to Aachen; then Aachen to Düsseldorf, and it seems that a rail pass isn’t worth it. Also we looked at booking saver tickets and selecting specific scheduled trains with loosing the flexibility of changing the times, any thoughts or comments? All are appreciated. Thanks, Chuck

      Veste Coburg

      Germany Aug 3, 2016 at 11:13 AM

      We hope to visit Coburg and its Veste (castle and art collection) early next spring. I enjoy visiting castles but have a hard time with tours as my hearing comprehension is poor, especially in German. I have found no on-line mention of a tour being required to visit the Veste. Can someone verify for me that the castle is open to public without signing up for a tour? Thank you, Gary

    • Help with Black Forest itinerary please !

      Black Forest Aug 1, 2016 at 2:10 AM

      Hi
      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.

      Museum Opening Times

      Berlin Aug 10, 2016 at 8:16 AM

      I'll have 2-3 free days in Berlin, beginning of September 2016. From Saturday till Monday evening. I'm looking for a list of museums including opening times including weekdays. It's OK in German, I read freely.

      On my last visit ten years ago I wasted a lot of time getting to Museums that had opening times on the internet, but they were closed on the day I came, or closed for restorations.

      Berlin Welcome Card

      Berlin Aug 18, 2016 at 1:39 AM

      Do I get this card in Berlin, or do I have to order it from home before my trip?
      On my 2,5 free days in September I want to visit several museums etc., but I don't know yet which ones. Because I don't know what I'll see with my group, and how the weather will be for walking.

      I won't take the card which includes the Schoenefeld airport, because I don't want to carry my suitcase to the bus, I prefer a taxi. Or is there the option of taking the airport trolley to the bus station? Then I could take the taxi only inside the city.

      Exchanging Money?

      Berlin Aug 3, 2016 at 9:29 PM

      Having read up on travel in Germany in general and Berlin in particular, there are several travel web sites that mention that credit and debit cards are not accepted as readily as they are in the USA and Canada.

      One of the hotels I am considering is well placed and available at a good price, but it is cash only upon arrival or pay by money order, as mentioned on these travel web pages.

      If I decide to go with this option, would I be best off getting Euros to pay for it at an ATM? Usually currency exchanges are a rip-off, but of course ATM fees can fall into that category as well, so I would like to know what the best options might be.

      Thanks in advance,

      Hi all,

      I'd appreciate any advice on where to watch the final of the Eurovision song contest tomorrow evening (18th May). Are there any places (eg. cafe, sports bar, restaurant) in Potsdam which will be showing this event? We are visiting Potsdam this weekend and would love to get a glimpse of this year's final but the accommodation we'll be staying at doesn't have a TV... Any advice would be much appreciated!

      Hi!

      I was hoping that someone might have a recommendation for a good bike tour company in Potsdam? Is biking a good way to see the city in a day? Would renting bikes and touring around on our own make good sense as another option?

      Hi! I am probably visiting Postday with a one day trip from Berlin on Aug 31. I think the easiest way is to take the train to Potsdam Hauptbahnhof. Does the same train stop also in Potsdam Sanssouci Bahnhof? Otherwise, is there any public transportation from Potsdam Hauptbahnhof to the biggest attractions?

      Potsdam queries

      by Graceful Online Now Nov 12, 2005 at 8:10 PM

      Hey VT Forums, Long time no see!

      Well, here's my newest travel conundrum; I'll be visiting Potsdam and Berlin next weekend (mostly Potsdam, as thats where my friend/SO/whatever we are... is living at the moment) and i have a few questions:

      I am flying into Schönfeld airport, arriving at around 16:15...
      1) how strict are Schengen area customs and how long will it take me to get to the bus stop?
      2) can anyone comment on Easyjet's punctuality? and their weight limit? (I've had lots of luck with Ryanair... even if i was over, they would still send my bag through)

      various VBB Info
      3)will it be easier for me to get to Potsdam by train and then bus or take the bus directly?
      4) will an Italian University student qualify for the student discount (7day ticket) or price reduction on the daily ticket? I need the Potsdam ABC fare, and am trying to see which option will end up being cheaper. Also, this one ticket (Potsdam ABC) will be good for getting around Potsdam AND Berlin, correct?

      5) Gerrem wrote about Potsdam Castle Night in the Sansousci gardens; anyone know when this event occurs?
      (link Potsdam Nightlife )

      5) any packing tips (besides gloves, scarves, and a really warm coat as said by my host)?

      6) heard about boat rides on the lakes; can anyone give me any more information on those (or link me to where i could get more information)?

      Danke Schoen!


      some things i want to see (my own random notes... if you have something special to add; feel free to add anything)
