    • Food/carousel/sing-along in Berlin?

      Berlin 19 hours ago

      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.

      I am a little confused about the City Tour Card or MVV. Also would like information regarding the Public Bus Line 100 which stops at all museums. Is this bus like the hop off hop on? Is this bus included in the City Tour Card or MVV? Our main purpose is to visit the museums in Munich. Which ticket would be the best value for your money? Thank you so much for your answers.

      Late Night Train Departure

      Munich Jul 22, 2016 at 7:14 PM

      We will be leaving our last night in Munich on a very late night train (11:30 PM), which makes for a very long day without a hotel room or place to relax for the latter part of our day. Can anyone suggest somewhere that we can "camp out" for a few hours before our departure, such as late-night spot near the Hauptbahnhof?

      Need a nice town/city west of Colonge with good train connections to Koln & Dusseldorf HBF

      Cologne Jul 5, 2016 at 7:58 AM

      We need a nice town/city west of Cologne with good train or S Bahn connections to Koln & Dusseldorf main station/HBF, hopefully within an hour trip. In September there is an exhibition in both Koln and Dusseldorf and the hotels are booked. Normally Dusseldorf has been the choice though, this time, traveling with friends and they should have an interesting town/city to visit when I am at the Messe. Thanks for all your help.

      Cafe or restaurant playing traditional German music

      Berlin Jul 21, 2016 at 7:17 PM

      I will be spending several days in Berlin during September. I wonder if there are any bars or cafes that would play "Oktoberfest" style music. I appreciate Berlin is not Munich but wondered what opportunities might exist to experience such music - and enjoy a beer at the same time.

      I am staying at the InterCity Hotel near Ostbahnhof station and am comfortable using public transport.

      My travelling companion and I are in our 60s but consider ourselves young at heart.

      Thank you from Paul in Australia

      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!!

      Eurovision final viewing in Potsdam

      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)
      Glienicker Bridge/Bridge of Unity
      Chinese Teahouse
      Steam House
