Bus travel between Amsterdam and Berlin

All,

We are planning to travel with our music band between Amsterdam and Berlin this summer multiple times. Both in Amsterdam and Berlin we play on many summer festivals. The bus is a good transportation means because we can take the overnight bus and save money on hotels. Our band has 5 people so if we just save a few Euros it will be a lot of money multiplied by 5. The other reason why we like the bus rather than the plane or train is because coaches are more flexible accepting extra luggage…

ICE from Dusseldorf to Berlin - Scenic?

Hi folks,
I'm going to Dusseldorf and Berlin in late may for work, and am contemplating the journey from Dusseldorf to Berlin. I won't have a lot of free time on this trip and its my first time to Germany, so I was thinking I might take the train from Dusseldorf to Berlin to take in some scenery. Can anyone comment if the ICE ride from Dusseldorf to Berlin is at all scenic or worth taking for the sights? I can get a plane ticket for only about 10 EUR more and save 3.5 hours of travel and get…

Heidelburg or Dresden?

Hi all!

I'm currently in the midst of planning a three-week trip for me and three other friends, during which we intend to explore Germany in depth. Currently, our plan takes us from Munich - Nuremberg - Berlin - Hamburg - Bremen - Cologne - Frankfurt - Munich, and we are looking into a few day trips that might be possible to other cities during these three weeks. Eventually, we settled upon either a day trip to Dresden (en route or during the days we are going to be in Berlin) or Heidelberg…

18th birthday in Berlin! Clubs and bar reccommendations

So me and a group of friends are going to Berlin for 3 days at the end of May and I was hoping someone could recommend us some places to go out at night. I'm the last to turn 18 so I want a wild weekend!! I don't want to spend hours lining up for the 'top 10' clubs, so anything less popular would be great- or popular ones that are worth the queue. Basically any sort of club, techno, edm music will make me happy.
Thanks =)

5 hours to kill in Munich - any suggestions on what to check out?

Hi all,

I have a stopover in Munich and will be arriving pretty early (8am). My flight out is not till 4pm so that leaves me a few hours to explore. Can you recommend 1 or 2 interesting spots that I can easily check out? Maybe a good lunch restaurant as well? Is there a train from Munich Airport to central Munich/downtown?

Any thoughts and recommendations would be much appreciated.

Cheers!
