I was going to be staying in Berlin with a friend of a native-person I know as well as this person in middle Germany for the entire time. We were going to rent a car and travel around the areas like Leipzig, Weimar, Buchenwald etc.
I got into an arguement and now they won't let me stay with them. So long story short, I can cancel my tickets because they are non refundable and it's $300 to change the dates to a shorter time period. I don't want to spend all 16 days in Berlin, and have ZERO contacts in Germany now.
I was planning on spending about 6-7 days in Berlin, but not an entire vacation. A strict budget is a high priority of mine as I did not have the intentions to be staying in hotels/hostels my entire duration.
Does anyone have any recommendations on what I could/should do? I wanted to see Erwin Rommel's monument in Herrlingen, some of the Black Forest, as well as the other historical places amongst Germany.
My vacation starts in a few weeks. =P
To add: This basically means I'm taking a solo trip to Germany. Nobody in my family or my friends can go due to lack of time preperation/school/work etc.
Thus, I'm searching for ideas how to get around Germany without any group. (Besides hitchhiking and spending lots of money on rental cars.)
