Munich in June

Hi. My husband and I are planning to go to Munich in mid June. He is only able to stay a week, while I will be staying over two weeks. We want to visit the pubs, the Neushwanstein castle, Dachau, and maybe a soccer game. We also wanted to possible hit another nearby location during his week stay and we are considering Prague, the Bavaria region, Switzerland, etc. Any _favorite places _we can do in a day or two? I don’t want to miss something amazing nearby since his time is limited.

Also, are there any suggested activities, hotels, etc. in Munich?

Thanks so much for any suggestions.

Living in Germany Summer 2012

Hi all, I am a student from Canada who will be living in Villingen-Schwenningen (VS), Germany for 4 months this summer. VS is about half way between Stuttgart and Zurich. I am hoping to travel as much as possible this summer and was hoping to get some input on where to travel, and the best options to get there.

Help with my summer 2012 itinerary please!

Hi everyone! I am looking for some help with my itinerary for backpacking Europe this summer from the end of May through the beginning of July. My boyfriend and I are going for exactly six weeks and I am a little concerned that we are trying to fit too much into a too short amount of time. We are flying into London on May 29 and flying out of Milan on July 10, so those are set in stone.

Backpacking Germany

I need help! Planning a 100-110 day backpacking trip to Europe, and have allocated about 1.5-2 weeks in Germany. Yes, I have taken into account the Schengen Area since I spending time in Bulgaria, England and Croatia.

So my dilemma is: I want to visit 2-3 main cities and then explore the countryside/small villages. Out of Munich, Dusseldorf, Hamburg, Berlin, Frankfurt and Stuttgart, which 2 should I pick? I’m thinking Stuttgart because I think I’ll enjoy exploring that area.

Help! 15 days in Europe: Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany?


I am planning a 15-day (already excluding flight days from USA, so 15 full days in europe) trip in europe in mid-late March 2012. I am flying in/out of Zurich, Switzerland. The main point of the trip is to visit my sister and bro-in-law in Groningan, Netherlands, where they reside. Thus, I’d like to spend at least 4-5 days with them there (which includes a day trip to Amsterdam). So that leaves 10-11 days to travel elsewhere in nearby countries. I have friends that live in Berlin, Frankfurt, and Kassel. So I’d like to visit them for at least a day/piece in all those cities as well.

Three Weeks in Europe Next April/May

I am planning a trip to Europe next year. Thinking about sometime in April/May. I have been to most of these places but added a few things I haven’t seen before. Is this itinerary doable? Or is there any place you would add or change? I have been to Amsterdam, Austria and Italy before and stayed overnight in Germany but travelling with some friends so am trying to accomodate them as well.

I added in the day trips as well as train/hostel info. Tend to be a bit of a planner LOL.

Munich to Brussels?

OK maybe I’m missing something, but what’s the easiest way to get from Munich to Belgium? The day I will be flying on is a Thursday… probably the 29th of September, but may be the week before that. I’ve seen some flights for over $160, and I’ve seen train tickets on the long ass train ride…. are those my only real options? What do you think is the easiest way to get from Munich over to Belgium?

Suggestions for my eurotrip itinerary

Hello guys, How are you today?

I am planning to go to Europe this summer for one month (4 weeks) I have the following itinerary but I need suggestions by you of the amount of days per city and adding/removing places. Maybe a little town around could be a good option also. what do you think of my plan? I am really excited because it would be my first travel to Europe. By the way, I will bring with me 3.000 US$ (I need to pay the train pass with it) plus airplane ticket.

Discover Germany On Line (Video + Stills)

My film “Septemberfest” presents all of Germany’s best known places: Frankfurt’s old town, a Rhine River cruise, Cologne’s Cathedral, the Hamburg red-light district, Berlin (The Wall, and other changes since 1990), lovely Dresden, Nuremberg, the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial, Munich (glockenspiel, beer hall, and palaces), plus King Ludwig II’s most famous castle.

9 person, 13 night euro trip - everything planned...except transport!

So, we decided to ditch our travel agent because she was NO help. She just wanted to put us on a cruise ship. Instead, we took up the task and booked 4 nights in Munich, 5 nights in Florence and 4 nights in Rome for 9 people. So, everything is done except transportation.

It would be a simple matter of buying point to point rail tickets to our destinations, except that our group wants to do different things while we are in our locations.
