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?

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.

This is a free, non-commercial, streaming video on the Windows Media Player. No ads and no strings attached. I sell absolutely nothing.

Oktoberfest / Wiesn: Room from Sept.17-27 for up to 6 people available!

I can offer a/two room/s during the Munich Oktoberfest. Room is furnished and has a large bed. Either two people can stay there or I have two more sleeping couches in the living room, each can fit 2 people (so up to six (6!) people can stay here). Bathroom/s will be shared (one bathroom with toilet and one additional bathroom with toilet). With the suburban train you are at the Oktoberfest within 15 minutes. During weekends the S-bahn almost goes all night long (so you save on taxi money).


only for girls!!!

Hey everybody!!!

I’m a 24 year ols student from Munich and I d like to rent my shared flat (walk-through) room during the Oktoberfest 2010 because I am on holiday at that time.

It is a beautiful 18 sq.m room with a twin bed and a sofa.
The appartment is shared with 3 other housemates and about 80 sq.m big.
You can use the kitchen and the toilett of course and feel at home Smile


Trenitalia problem

When I try to book a train ticket through Trenitalia website there is an option for Smart & Smart 2. Is anyone entitled for those discounted prices?
After I submitted my information in the “TICKET DELIVERY” section it read…
“Self Service (Not present in the departure station)”, and the home delivery option was available but wouldn’t take my USA address. Both ticketless options were unavailable to me as well, because the were grayed out.
Is there anyway I can get this ticket at the discounted price?

Train: Euronight 485 date: 24/09/2010 from Muenchen Hbf (21:03) to Venezia S.

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.
