Getting there

Getting around

Since January 2013 (liberalization of the coach market) you can travel on an increasing number of routes by bus. Cheap prices are available when booking early! Some examples:

To find the nearest public transport, you can use the map at http://www.�pnvkarte.de/ (uses OSM data).

If you want to compare flight fares (worldwide), http://www.skyscanner.net is very helpful.

http://www.verkehrsmittelvergleich.de/ claims to compare all available transport options: carsharing; busses, trains and planes.

What to do

There are A LOT of things to do throughout Germany. You probably best check the websites of particular cities or regions you want to visit. The websites for the bigger cities follow the same name-address pattern: www.cityname.de. For example: http://www.berlin.de http://www.bremen.de http://www.hamburg.de http://www.muenchen.de etc.

People

We got such famous people like Chancellor Angela Merkel here. And she even has got her own blog and weekly podcast: http://www.bundeskanzlerin.de

Eat and Drink

You should try some German beer ;-)
