An Earmap of the Federal Republic

I'll be spending a week in Germany at the beginning of October. I have a ton of free time and the willingness to go anywhere that's rail-accessible. So, I beseech you: What are some of the coolest-SOUNDING places or things in Germany? [more inside]

Industrial Heritage Sites in Western Europe

I will be leaving Bastogne on the morning of 9/26 and arriving in Bruges/Brugge on the evening of 9/28 and have no plans yet for the time in between. I will have access to a car and would like to tour some industrial or industrial heritage sites during that time. I am willing to drive a good couple hundred miles out of my way to do so. Do you have any suggestions for me? [more inside]

Daytripper from Hamburg Germany

I will be spending 4-5 days alone while wife is in a conference during the day in Hamburg Germany, Since the highlight of Hamburg seems to be a huuuge toy train museum (Miniatur Wunderland), I wanted to know if there are day trips (via train) I could take to neighboring cities/countries (berlin?, Paris?) that might be feasible or recommended to get the most out of my trip, but be able to get back at night.

What's new in Berlin since 2005?

I booked a secret weekend away in Berlin for Mrs SpacemanRed's 40th birthday, except it now turns out she was there for 5 days in 2005, so it's not going to be the novelty I was hoping for. Please hope me. [more inside]

Another layover question! Overnight, Berlin edition.

I'll be arriving in Berlin in the evening (earliest I'll be out of the airport is 9pm), with an early early morning flight the next day. Do I just get a hotel close to the airport and sleep? Or do I try to see a sliver of Berlin for the first (and maybe only) time ever that evening, somehow? Difficulty factor: grumpy old person who needs sleep. [more inside]

Christmas Eve Dinner in Munich

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]

Taking a Rest in Munich

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]

Looking to fill 6 hours in Berlin

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]

Where to stay and what to do in Munich

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?

What to do in and around Göttingen, Germany?

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.
