We (party of two) are going to be in Munich for Christmas Eve. It seems like all the places that are open are hotel restaurants doing very traditional (and expensive) Christmas Eve-special dinners. Where else is there? [more inside]
So my parents are on a European riverboat cruise. It is pretty casual, which is nice because they are old and don't have a lot of stamina. However, they have a one day excursion to Munich (tomorrow, in fact) where they won't be able to get back to their boat and my dad is worried that Mom doesn't have the gas in the tank. Is there some place they can chill out in the city for a couple hours and recharge their batteries? [more inside]
My ride for this coming Monday flaked on me. Is there any way for me to get from Hotel IBIS Dreilinden in Kleinmachnow to Tegel/Berlin Airport at 11am that ISN'T an 80euro taxi ride? Thanks!
I have several hours to kill today in Frankfurt (Main), Germany. Where should I go? What should I do? [more inside]
This week I'll be flying through Berlin, arriving at Tegel and departing from Schonefeld. I get in just before 10am and fly out at 6pm. I'll be somewhat mobile but will be carrying enough that, eg, walking several miles through an architecturally interesting neighborhood, for example, which I would normally love, would be a no-go. Looking mostly for recommendations for where to get some good food and kill time pleasantly. [more inside]
It's possible that at the end of this Summer I will need to move from the German city I am currently living in to one ~9 hours away. But how? [more inside]
I'm in Munich for three days this summer (around the last of week of June) and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for hostels? I'd prefer a social atmosphere but nothing too party-oriented. Also, what are some must-see and must-do things for a short visit to Munich?
A friend and I are headed to Göttingen, Germany, for part of the Handel Festival. We'll have some time to kill during the days (May 21-24) before the evening concerts. Can you recommend some daytime activities in Göttingen or within a short radius by train? We'd especially like to find a good place to go hiking and watch birds, but other suggestions are welcome.

I've got about six hours in Hamburg coming up. What is your One Thing To Do there? [more inside]
We've decided to go to Germany in early June, rent a car, and drive from Frankfurt to Dresden over the course of a week. Where shall we go? [more inside]
I've got 2 nights in Berlin, then 2 nights in Hamburg, then 3 nights unbooked before I fly back out of Berlin - where should I spend them? This is around the start of May. I like cities, interesting places, staying in hostels, don't have a huge amount of money. (I've not been to Berlin before and it's possible the answer is "more Berlin").

We're headed to Berlin for the holidays. We have a general sense of where to go and what to see from previous MeFi posts but wonder specifically: What's the city like on December 25th and over the holidays in general? Are there any activities, sights, events occurring during this time that we shouldn't miss? Oh, and where should we eat? [more inside]

My son is travelling to Germany with his school choir in February. He has his passport, luggage, and spending money. He has asked us to get him a travel pillow and a passport holder. Do you know the best travel pillow and/or passport holder? If so, please point at them. What else should we get him to help him have a fun and safe trip? [more inside]

Berlin Filter: I'm heading to Germany soon, and I was disappointed to learn that the Stasi Museum will be closed while I'm there. What's the next best destination for a tourist curious about the inner workings of the East German secret police?

My wife and I are in Berlin until this Saturday morning (Oct. 4th). We'd like to go Out On The Town (i.e. Drinking and dancing) one night, but there seem to be no end of places to go and I'm kind of at a loss. Can anyone suggest any particular nights/venues/events? [more inside]

I will be by myself in Munich next week, for about a day. I'd feel remiss if I didn't experience at least a bit of Oktoberfest, but I'm having trouble understanding it. Help me do Oktoberfest right in one day? [more inside]

Let's say you're a young artist. And you're headed to Berlin in spring. You plan on fully immersing yourself in local culture once you get there -- you're going to get a studio, mingle at pubs and learn about your neighborhood. But you'd like a boost on the art scene. You want to get culturally & conversationally fluent! [more inside]

I'll be traveling with my (American) family for around 20 days in Germany. We would like to have two phones for short term use to handle brief day to day communication. Best options? [more inside]

I'm in Berlin for a conference, and I'm trying to squeeze some time in the city around our program. I've been to Berlin several times before and there is a bus tour as part of the even, so I've got the major tourists sites covered, but need suggestions for late night and early morning suggestions.
