train and hotel questions

by trvlingrndma52

We have 3 couples planning on traveling to Garmisch, we plan on one night but may stay longer. We wanted to know about the train station for lockers to hold our rolling suitcases. Are there some there or not? Also a good hotel near the station what ones do you suggest. We have not booked anything and we will be going there Sept 25/26, 2010. We planned to go on to Fussen, then to Rotenburg ob der Tauber. What would others suggest for us as this is first time in Germany for all of us.

Sounds good to me. I can't comment on Garmisch as I have yet to have the pleasure of going there, but I can vouch for Fuessen and Rothenburg Ob Der Tauber. Lots of tips on my Fuessen (be sure to put the "e" in or you'll get a different page) and Rothenburg Ob Der Tauber pages. Enjoy your trip, it's a great part of the world you have chosen.

I would also suggest you visited Regensburg, Bamburg and/or Wurzburg. I have pages on all of these (and Rothenburg ob de), and you will find plenty more pages, tips and info written by VT-ers if you put each location into the searchbox top right of this page.

There is a left luggage facility according to

http://www.bahnhof.de/site/bahnhoefe/de/bahnhofssuche__deutschland/bahnhofssuche/bahnhofsdaten__filter,variant=details,recordId=2014.html?c210230=garmisch

but I can find no details of cost/hours I'm afraid.

Bahn.de is one of the few European railway sites which not only offers very good advance deals on some routes for advance purchases but is also extremely effint at dealing with purchases from abroad. It's well worth investigating what is on offer for your dates and route:

The Laender tickets are very good value if you are making a journey within one region. For 20 euro (one person) or 25 euro (for up to 5) you have unlimited travel on regional trains for 24 hours:

You can easily buy these from ticket machines (all of which have English language options, by the way).

Re: train and hotel questions

www.hrs.de is a good place to look for hotels. I did a quick search for hotels on your weekend, there are still some rooms available, but not particularly cheap or close to the town centre. I suppose you all want to stay in the same hotel? If you split up, your chances will be better.
Spetember is the traditional months to go hiking in the mountains, which may be the reason hotels in Garmisch are already booked.

There are lockers at the train station. There is a Hotel, Vierjahreszeiten directly opposite the train station but they have no vacancies at those dates.I think the Oktoberfest being on at the same time will affect this area, perhaps contact the tourist office there and ask them where there would be rooms. I have used Hotel Bavaria, about 800 metres from the station, perhaps look at their website- type in google hotel+bavaria+garmisch as there are other hotels with this name.

Travel Tips for Garmisch-Partenkirchen

Miscellaneous Tips...

by Donna_in_India

Meeting New People and Seeing New Places

These tips are based on my last 8 weeks of traveling in Europe/Africa:

1. Buy/pre-order as many museum/attraction tickets online as you can.
2. Ask the taxi fare before taking off in a taxi, especially if it’s late at night or coming from an airport.
3. Charge your camera batteries every night.
4. If you have a Eurail pass and need to make reservation make them in Europe. It’s a lot less expensive.
5. If you’re climbing a few hundred steps up a tower, monument, etc. go only a clear, sunny day.
6. Learn at least Hello, Thank you, and Goodbye in the foreign language of the countries you are visiting.
7. Turn your cell phones off inside churches, museums, etc. If it rings and you must take the call, do it outside!
8. If there’s a running commentary (live or recorded), be polite and be quiet.
9. Dress appropriately and be respectful in churches.
10. If you’re traveling with children, don’t let them disrupt others around you. If they cry or throw a tantrum, take them outside.
11. If you have a complaint, do it reasonably without yelling and cursing.
12. Regarding pictures:
a. If there are signs saying “No pictures”, don’t take pictures! There’s a reason for the signs. Do you really, really need that picture of Mona Lisa to prove you’ve seen it?
b. Learn how to use your camera before the trip. If there are signs saying “No flash”, make sure you know how to use the camera without it.
c. If you see a couple or family with one person taking pictures of the other(s), offer to take a picture of both/all of them. Maybe they’ll reciprocate.
13. Check local holidays. Since many museums and stores will be closed, you’ll need to have other plans for the day. (Most stores throughout much of Europe are closed on Sunday.)
14. Don’t try to do too much. Leave some open time to just explore.
15. You’re on vacation so relax and have a good time!

photos around GAP - 9 -

by MrBill

These do not really count as tips, but then again, what is better than a good photo to tell a story? GAP was and is in some sense of the word a truly wonderful place, but through indiscrimate development they are in real danger of inadvertently killing the goose that laid the golden egg. How many car dealerships does GAP need? How many grocery stores? GAP is and should be foremost a mountainous retreat, not a commercial center. Locals who own land, benefit by selling their farms for lots of money for development. Tourists who choke the streets of GAP make unnecessary purchases. The only ones who lose are those that come to the mountains for the mountains.

Hike around the Eibsee

by lareina

Drive or bike south of Garmisch to Grainau and follow the signs to the Eibsee. This clear, cold lake lies at the foot of the Zugspitze mountain. A well-maintained path circumnavigates the lake and makes for an easy hour-long hike. In the warm months, people flock to the Eibsee to sun on the rocky beach and brave the water which warms up from ice cold to just plain cold. There is a hotel, restaurant with deck, and a paddleboat rental at the lake.

Expect to pay a couple euro for parking at the lake or take the Eibsee bus from the Marienplatz in Garmisch.

Afternoon meals

by PaulKirk about Various

Most resturants will seve food at lunchtime until 1430 or sometimes 1500 and then offer a smaller snack menu until early evening. The same applies to the bars in the hills. Don't worry! You won't go hungry. The afternoon menus centre on cold plates wirh cheese, ham and pork with some local bread usually available. A mixed plate of meat & cheese should also be on offer.Hot dishes tend to be limited to Goulaschsuppe or an Eintopf (Potato & Vegetable soup with frankfurter type sausage) or Strammer Max which is the local name for Ham & fried eggs on a piece of bread. Some places will seve Bratwurst and fried potatoes or potato salad. The cold plates usually comprise of a plate covered in meat or cheese with 2 or 3 slices of the local brown bread and go down well with a few beers. Most places will sell Apfel Kuchen but it's better with coffee than beer so I stick to the savoury stuff. Schweinbraten and horseradish. The horseradish is hot and strong.

Have a beer

by PaulKirk

One of the things I really like about Bavaria and Garmisch in particular is the beer! Ther's plenty of choice and it's rare to get a bad one. And it's not all lager. Try a dunkel or dark beer like a Konig Ludwig or a Josefi Bock in a Mittenwalder supplied bar. The Mittenwald Brewery also makes a dark Christmas beer. Best of all in Wintertime the Ettaler brewery have a beer called Curator. Well worth finding! Weissbier or wheat beer is worth trying. It's a bit like Marmite, you either love it or hate it! As for the hell beers, you can actually taste the difference unlike the Eurofizz we get in England. My favourite is Paulaner but with Lowenbrau, Hacker Pschorr, JW Augustiner, Ettaler and Mittenwalder I'm sure you'll find something you like and it's great fun finding out which you like the best.
In the town itself there aren't as many places to sit outside as you might expect. There are a few tables set up but in the main most places don't have the room.
I have to say that most ordinary bars are quiet and they usually close around 1130 to midnight. There are music bars that are busier and they stay open later.
My favourite bars are up in the hills. Most of them have terraces and when the sun's out what could be better especially if you've spent a couple of hours building up a thirst. The views of the mountains make a splendid backdrop. Most of the mountain bars close in the early evening so do them during the day and the bars in town at night.
Cheers!
