A long journey from Fussen to Berlin by train. Initially, we thought of taking the plane. However, we decided to have a different experience by taking the train. A lot of things happened that day when we were on the train, it was not only an experience but also a lesson learnt.
Fussen, Hohenschwangau where the famous Neuschwanstein Castle sits above the small village of Hohenschwangau in the South West of Bavaria in Germany, close to the Austrian border. The nearest railway station is 5 kilometres away in the town of Fussen. For easy understanding, I will put down the necessary transport information, example: train, bus and cab duration, cost and what ticket to buy in order to save cost.
A detailed and yet simple to understand train guide for travellers planning their trip to Germany. I will be covering the different types of tickets available (only in places I covered), things to note when boarding the train, different classes. As we only travelled within Germany, I cannot help much if you are planning on a Europe rail trip. (more…)
A simple and easy transportation guide for travellers heading to Munich for 1 to 2 days short stay on what kind of transport ticket should they get and how to buy it. I will put down the most common pass/ticket that we will need and a step by step guide on how to get your ticket.
Getting a prepaid card in Munich or Germany was not as easy as I thought it would be, even though I read up on the experiences other people had. I thought of getting the sim card at the airport. However, after the research it seems like buying the Sim card outside will be better. Prior arriving into Germany, I went through the hassle exchanging email with the Mobile company indicating our interest to get the Tourist sim card and to find out more information. To our dismay, upon arrival not all outlets have the regulations standardise.
Getting to the city from Munich International Airport can be quite easy. Some of the transportation available at the airport would be the airport bus, train, taxi or rental car. However, I will only be covering on the Lufthansa Express Bus as this is what we took in Munich and was very happy with their service.
With the latest upgrade of Shinkansen system, the Tokaido Sanyo Shinkansen has opened up their online Shinkansen ticket reservation for foreigners.
