to Oslo from Trier?

by ikiebert

What is the best way to travel from Trier to Oslo? I will be a passenger in a car that is going from Trier to London. Where should I ask to be dropped off so that I can go up to Oslo? Is there a way to go by train? Is air travel better? All advice welcome. (Traveling around 22 May 2010)

Stay in Trier.

Ryanair flies from Hahn to Oslo, but not on the 22nd. There is a flight on the 23d though. There is a bus from Trier to Hahn airport.

Train is not a feasible option as that would take around 24 hours.

Ryanair (http://www.ryanair.com) have flights from Hahn (49 km from Trier) to Torp (85 km from Oslo) on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. There is a shuttle bus from Trier to Hahn and from Torp you can go by either airport coach or train to Oslo.

Ryanair is a budget, no frills airline, so remember to read the T&Cs carefully before booking.

Air travel is definitely faster and should be cheaper too. I have also travelled by train (roughly Trier -> Köln -> Hamburg -> Copenhagen -> Malmö -> Oslo), which is a great way of seeing lots and lots, but it tends to be quite expensive and slow.

It is also possible to go by bus, which is equally slow, but not as interesting and - literally - a pain in the backside. I did a price check on bus v plane, and the latter worked out to be cheaper in most cases.

I would ask for a ride to Düsseldorf airport and fly with Norwegian (http://www.norwegian.no) directly to the real Oslo airport (Oslo-Gardermoen). There you can take a fast and comfortable shuttle train to Oslo central station.

Or you go all the way to London and fly from Gatwick with Norwegian.

Travel Tips for Trier

Parking

by mustertal

There is plenty of parking around the City and it is well sign posted,but be careful with the Park and Ride,we followed one sign to P&R with a football on it,then realised it was for the football stadium only !!!!!! Then we took the other P&R to just outside the city only to find it closed on Bank Holidays and week-ends.

Junggesellen Abschied

by kokoryko

Having a drink at the terrace of a pub close to the Porta Nigra, we witnessed an interesting scene which can be considered as a local custom. Bachelor parties (not sure the English wording expresses exactly this event; the German “Junggesellenabschied” (bachelor life farewell) or the French “enterrement de vie de garcon” (bachelor’s life funeral) are to me much more expressive, explicit and poetic) are a common custom in many places and I even remember mine, but the one here was an original one, and it was interesting to watch the young future husband doing his best to get money for paying drinks for himself and his friends: wearing a T-shirt stuck with small coloured hearts, and a big necklace with little bottles, he visited all female clients (symbolising his “ex” or the ones he would not have a chance to “know”) of the pub and offered a heart or a bottle and received some money in return.
He seemed to do well, and I guess he and his friends may have had some difficulties to return home late in the night. . . .

International part of Germany

by Pavlik_NL

This area has a very moved past as it belonged not only to Germany, but also to France and even to the Bourgondian state. That is why in lingula skills, many here know more then German alone and tourists are helped with at least three languages.
Don't forget to go inside the Basilica as the beauty here lies from within, although the building from the outside looks quiet simple.

Bowling!

by drei3t

We were thinking what to do on Sunday evening and then we found a Bowling place. It is great fun, and the waitresses bring you next beer automatically when you have finished the previous beer. There seemed to be many groups of young people, so this seems to be one way of spending evenings for the local youth. You get shoes and balls, so basically you don't need anything with you beforehand.
