Very excited, I get to spend two weeks, mainly in Germany this fall. Any thoughts people can provide.
Berlin we get in the morning 09/27, have two nights there, then same as paris, the whole day until a CNL train to Munich. Right now we have reservations at a Crown Plaza near the Zoological garden, haven't stayed there but I haven't found a good place in Mitte or surrounding (my nights in paris and Berlin I have to stay at hotels through Delta Vacation, it got me an amazing rate on our flights, just under $900 per person round trip).
I will post this part on the Berlin Forum, but I am hoping Hertha Berlin will be in town when we are there to catch a match, I know fixtures don't come out until August or so, but my question is, any tips on getting tickets for them? I have used Viagogo for Dortmund in the past, but I am thinking I can get tix's directly through the team, not quite the demand...yet! :)
Over night train to Munich Two nights in Munich...I planned this to go through Munich. We booked a room at the Smart Stay Hotel Station, we paid $300 per night, doesn't look like a great hotel, but it is in the right location, walking distance to Marienplatz and just a few stops from the "Wiesen", any tips? Can I score some Trachten (traditional clothing) any where near where I am staying?
After our nights in Munich I will pick up a car, (thinking through Auto Europe, used them in the past) picking up a car near the station, then we are heading to Salzburg for the night. (09/30-10/2)
We stay one night there, then heading south towards the Bavarian Alps to drive the AlpenStrasse, then we are going to base out of Mittenwald, staying at Haus Schweigart for four nights, seeing the Bavarian sights, hiking etc. before heading back to Munich on 10/07 to fly home, we have an afternoon flight out.
Any thoughts or if you know the routes and places any feed back would be great!
