    • HELP NEEDED with Stag Do in Düsseldorf.

      Düsseldorf Jun 29, 2016 at 10:41 AM

      Hi there, I have booked a Stag weekend in Düsseldorf. I want to make it the best I can for the Groom to be. I am looking for activities that will be fitting for the party.More importantly on how to book them as my understanding of the German language is limited.
      There will be approx 12-15 going, in August.

      The idea I had was something sporty/ adventurous for Friday, a VIP table at a club Saturday, then a chill out on the Rhine Sunday.

      Thank you for the help in advance.

      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?

      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!!

      Can I get the S-Bahn from Wiesbaden directly to Frankfurt Main.

      by EmmaG80 Online Now Nov 5, 2015 at 1:44 AM

      I am arriving in Frankfurt Hahns as I booked by Ryanair and had no idea that Frankfurt Hahn airport was actually no where near Frankfurt, Who would have thought! Unfortunately I have terrible anxiety when travelling on public transport or motorways or trains and will not be able to do 2 hours on a bus to Frankfurt, so I have researched my plan to get the shuttle bus to Mainz and the S-Bahn to Wiesbaden as there was not much choice of hotels left in Mainz so I will stay a night there then travel to frankfurt next day. I have booked a hotel in Sachsenhausen , Hotel Novum Primus, so if anyone has any advise on how to get there when I get off the train at Frankfurt would be a great help, also i noticed there is 3 stops for frankfurt, which one do i get off at? Thanks in advance from a very worried traveller!

      How much is the taxi / train S-8 from Frankfurt Airport to Wiesbaden Train Station?

      by ourholidays Online Now Mar 3, 2007 at 6:34 AM


      I will be arriving at Frankfurt Airport at 6a.m. Tuesday morning and I will be going to Wiesbaden (NH Aukumm Hotel) immediately after arriving.

      I heard the taxi is expensive. I heard it was Euro43 in 2006.
      Does anyone know roughly how much is it in 2007?
      Any increase in price? Anyone took the taxi on this route before?

      I was advised to take the S-8 train.
      How much is the ticket from the vending machine?
      Do I need exact change(coins)?
      Can I pay with a Euro10 note and get change?

      I tried to check things out at the train websites but I am lost and couldnt find the fares and the train name. I think I better ask here to get more info instead of getting onto the wrong train.....hehe!

      Thank you very much.

      by tashaw6 Online Now Jun 2, 2005 at 4:23 AM

      It will be my husband and my 1st wedding anniversary on the 25th of September this year. We fly into Frankfurt from our holiday to South Africa on the 24th of September 2005. It is my task to organise our anniversary day...

      My idea so far would be to get a limo to pick us up at the airport and drop us off at a hotel situated on the river (or close enough to see the river). Then take him to a romantic restaurant that evening (or just order in...).

      The next day I would like to take a trip down the river (have champagne breakfast on the boat if possible). And because the 25th is a Sunday we have to get back home that same day so nothing that will take to long this day.

      Ok, so my question(s)...

      1. I need help re the hotel? I need somewhere that has a nice BIG bath (jaccuzzi bath would do...). It must be nice in other words...It must be close to a restaurant or have a restaurant at the hotel. It must be on or really close to the river cause we're going to have to walk there...

      2. I need a contact number of the boat that goes up and down the river (or a way or means to contact or find the boat place...)

      3. Any other help or suggestions that you may have to make this day even more special. he has really spoilt me this year so I have to make this one special!

      Thanks guys!

      Aukammtal Bad in Wiesbaden -- any experience with it?

      by fritzrl Online Now Mar 11, 2005 at 1:32 PM

      Here I am, looking forward to speeding my recovery from jet-lag in Wiesbaden by visiting the Kaiser-Friedrich Therme for a little steam and sauna. I was disappointed to find out only yesterday that the day I’ll be in town (Tuesday) is the women-only day at KF, and I don’t qualify.

      However, I did find on the website a reference to the Thermalbad Aukommtal – with a variety of pools (soaking, swimming, warm, cold), and a large selection of sauna experiences. It looks equally welcoming, if quite new, and the women-only day for Aukammtal is Monday.

      Has anyone on the board ever visited the Aukammtal spa? If so, do you have any thoughts or impressions you’d like to share? Also: I know that KF is ‘textilfrei’ (no swimsuits required), but the website doesn’t mention whether Aukammtal is the same in that respect. I have no problem either way with being nude among strangers in an appropriate setting. But, if I don’t have to pack the swimming trunks, I’d rather not -- I likely won't be using them at any other time on the trip.

      Thanks in advance for any info.
