We will be taking a train from Hamburg to Berlin, stay overnight in Berlin and then rent a car in Berlin. Our plan is to drive from there to Bavaria for a couple of days, then to the Black Forest and on to the Rhine Valley, where we will take a boat ride from Koblenz to Mainz. We will then return the car to Hamburg.
Our questions (so far) are:
1.) We haven't finalized a rental car pickup point in Berlin yet. Is either the Tegel or Schoenefeld Airport an easier location to get to from downtown…

We (family of 6; parents + four 20-somethings) will be in Berlin mid-June and we have three vegetarians and the rest of us certainly veg-centric as well. We will be going into our third week in Germany (first 2 in Oldenburg/Hamburg) and I know Berlin has really vibrant and diverse restaurants. Would you have any suggestions for us, doesn't have to be a "vegetarian" place but maybe Asian, Mediterranean, or we would love German food if it wasn't sausage-centric.

And if you know the any of the…

Hello,
Me and and my girlfriend plan to stay during two weeks n Germany.

We will fly to Berlin, and the first week, we plan to make a cycletour on the south, and, then, we will bring our panniers. The second week, we plan to hike, and bring the backpacks.

My question is, is there any place where we can drop the backpack during the first week, and the panniers the second one?
We contact to Hauptbahnhof, but the lockers can be used for a maximum of 72hs

Thanks

She looks for an internship in the NGO / non-profit sector. Can you maybe give us some hints where to find Organizations that offer internships (English speaking) or where to start to look?

Hi all, my family will be spending 5 days in Munich beginning of June. I tried to find a rental service for baby equipment in Munich but had no luck (one place that existed is permanently closed).
Does anyone know of a company or individual that rents baby cots or beds? We would need it from June 1st to June 6th (if one week rental is a minimum that's fine too).
Thank you in advance!
Marina

I am arriving Rothenburg at noon. Is it too rush to make a brief glance on the town and leave for Wurzburg for overnight? Seems Rothenburg is a bit touristy and just a tiny town...

NPR (National Public Radio in the United States) has a story today about Cityhostel Berlin. Apparently the building is owned by the government of North Korea:

Hi All,

My husband and I are pretty seasoned travelers who prefer to see off-the-beaten path kinds of places. We have two daughters who are 2 and 5.

This Christmas, we'd like to do a 2-week road trip in Bavaria and the Black Forest. We'll probably be flying in and out of Zurich as that seems cheapest.

Here are my specific questions:

  1. Any recommendations of villages, hikes, parks, castles, etc to see along the way?
  2. I know the Romantic road and the Alpine road are heavily touristed during…
