Meggle butter vs grass fed kerrygold and Organic valley?

I tried Meggle alphine butter from Germany and really like it. I also tried president butter from France and didnt like the artificial flavor. Later I tried organic valley the limited edition and was not impressed at all. Then I tried Kerrygold garlic and herbs butter which basically tastes just like sour cream, not only tasteless but actually kind of disgusting? I am wondering how does Kerrygold regular butter compared with Meggle? I haven't try it yet but don't want to waste time and money. Meggle tastes so good, but it's not grass fed I guess. How are butter and dairy products made in Germany , is there anyone know? Really hope it's not antibiotics and hormone loaded. Thanks!

Leaving my life behind for a while...

So...I applied for and received a grant to learn/research/write abroad for 4 months starting in March in the field of librarianship and informatics. The grant will pay for food, shelter, and travel (4 cities in Germany, if it matters). The grant agency is going to try and help me find temporary housing. Very fortunately, my job is ok with this and excited about what I will learn, so I have a job to come back to. I am simultaneously excited and terrified. IF you've done something like this before...any recommendations? [more inside]

Leipzig for the weekend - make it awesome for us

My husband and I are spending next weekend in Leipzig - arriving Friday evening leaving Sunday afternoon/evening, getting to and from by car. We are couchsurfing with people in the south of the city, and have very little in the way of plans other than seeing the train station (we werre last in Leipzig over a decade ago and the train station was closed due to a bomb threat, so we really want to see it this time). Places to visit, places to eat, cake/beer/meals not to be missed - all ideas gratefully recieved.

Sausage tourism in Munich and Austria?

I'm a big fan of sausage - all kinds of sausage. Street vendor sausage, fancy sausage, pork sausage, chicken sausage, beef sausage. I am traveling to Munich, Salzburg, and Vienna for a few weeks in July. Where can I get the best (for whatever definition of "best" suits you) sausages, whether it be a quick lunch at a vendor between sights or a sit-down dinner?

Money in Berlin

I'm moving to Berlin for the summer, and I need to know how I should go about transfering living funds over. I'll be getting 3000 Euro when I get there, but that will not be enough to live on for the entire summer. Should I exchange them into Euros? Should I use my US credit card? Should I get a German bank account. I would love any advice you can give me.
