This may seem a strange question, but I want to find out if there are any German supermarket/grocery store chains where you can buy eggs not by the carton, but by whatever number of eggs you want.
Explanation: I'll be travelling in Germany next year in a small motorhome and I can only run my refrigerator when the car engine is running and for maybe an hour or so after the engine is switched off (because the auxiliary battery can't handle any more), and of course at stellplätze/campsites where I…
I'll be driving to these two places. Is there parking close to the main sites of these two places that are safe to park a locked car for a 3-4 hours? Completelt ok with paying for parking.
My husband and I are planning a bike tour along the Rhine and the Mosel and possibly up to Amsterdam.
In order to make best use of our time, I'm wondering how difficult it is to travel by train with the bike. For instance, I think I might like to take the bikes by train from Cologne to Anheim and ride from there to Amsterdam. Or from Amsterdam to Trier to bike from there to Koblenz.
How secure is the bike on the train? And how difficult it is to make transfers with a bike through…
Can anyone recommend books or movies to me that can teach me about what life in Germany was like in the 1950s and 1960s?
The films and books can be in German. Any tips where else to ask on the internet is appreciated... maybe quora or reddit, but German-speaking would be better.
We are trying to find a Krampus run/night in a Germany or Czech republic. Unfortunately we leave Salzburg for Cesky Krumlov on morning of 21 December when the Krampus Run begins at 7pm that night in Salzburg. We were wondering if there was another Krampus run/night in Cesky Krumlov, Prague after 21 Dec. Alternately, if there was a Krampus run in Stuttgart or Nuremburg around 16-19 December?
We are taking a Baltic cruise that stops at Warnemunde Germany. Prior to the cruise we are spending several days in Berlin so we are not interested in cruise line-offered excursions to Berlin. Not much is offered so my question is what is there to do around the port there, we are there all day and into the evening hours? Are there local tour operators around the port dock that offer day tours say to Hamburg or other nearby towns/cities? Thanks.
Maybe you are also familiar to it. Locals become your half friend and half guide and you pay them a small amount of money and they show you around . It is much cheaper and more friendly than a professional guide. or it seems to me as far as i experienced..
Anyway.. Recently i was searching a local guide in Berlin because we traveling there with my girl friend. And i faced with couple of them.. I want to ask you if you've already experienced any of them and you can recommend ?
What i found…
We have opted on flying to Germany instead of the ferry cold weather was a bit daunting. We are thinking of Berlin as a destination for a few days. Has anyone any suggestions, comments or suggestion of a better destination in December. I really want to go to some Christmas markets.
Ok, so I'll go to Berlin with another person monday (17/10) to thursday (20/10). The city is full of parks, museums etc. But can you guys recommend some more thrilling stuff? Something more exciting than just sight-seeing?
I've found something called "Berlin Dungeon" which surely I'll check out. The whole area around Alexanderplatz seem interesting I'll say.
Anyhow, if you guys know something else to do in Berlin at those days than just sight-seeing and eating at restaurants, please let me…
With the new DB Bahn train timetable coming out in next couple of days, I wanted to be sure I wasn't overlooking anything in the train booking for our family of four. I would appreciate any advice on which trains, tickets and any other tips in booking trains.
I will list our itinerary and transport option (as far as I understand??) between each.
1. Paris to Stuttgart (2 nights in Stuttgart to see Xmas markets and a quick trip to Esslingden medieval Xmas markets) [ICE train from Paris…
