Bavaria Warnings and Dangers

  • Safe City

    Munich Warnings and Dangers

    Munich is the city safer than ever I have visited. It is very normal to see high times of the night by the stations of u-bahn to police, either the national, or the own one of u-bahn. Single a danger, the night; the discotecas and the tequila.

  • The area around the main station

    Munich Warnings and Dangers

    I'm staying few weeks in München and found the place safe and comfortable. The only exception is at Nett discount supermarket on Dachauerstrasse north of the main station. Nett is incredibly cheaper than the stores in the train station. Also, you can bring the bottles for recycling refunds. So, I have been visiting there many times. The problem...

  • At the Oktoberfest

    Munich Warnings and Dangers

    Hello...My husband and I just went to the Oktoberfest in Germany to celebrate our 15 year wedding anniversary. We went with his family, who live in Germany. We were there on Wednesday, September 26, 2012. During the evening, since I am not a big drinker, I started taking pictures of the other tables. I was dismayed to discover I was completely lost...

  • Dangerous beer

    Munich Warnings and Dangers

    I could not believe it myself, when I first heared about this special prohibition in Munich : You are NOT allowed to drink alcohol in Marienplatz and the pedestrian zone of Munich !! This law was mainly made in order to keep homeless people and drunkards out of the tourist-places in the centre. But of course this law applies as well for tourists,...

  • Traffic

    Munich Warnings and Dangers

    Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, the catchy title of the 1992 bestseller by John Gray, succinctly expresses an ancient dilemma. What--if anything--do men's and women's brains do differently? The general statement that men and women respond and behave differently under the same circumstances is true; For example, from the crib, male babies...

  • Too expensive

    Munich Warnings and Dangers

    YOu can do better someplace else to purchase items to eat, take home such as cheese, meats and spices, etc, of tourist items to take home. There is such a demand and crowds at the market that they do not have to compete for better prices. It seems to be mostly set for the tourists; either foreign, or Duetsch. A beer costs 4-5 Euro for 1/2L and the...

  • Careful: machines can't read new 5 Euro...

    ! This is not really a warning tip – just a “be aware of” one.European Central Bank is in the process of issuing new Euro banknotes since 2013. They started with the smallest denomination, the 5 Euro banknote.. But obviously there must have been a lack in communication between ECB and the providers of paying machines: when it comes to the machines...

  • The weather is... unpredictable (haha)

    Of course this is not a real warning or danger tip, but one of the “be aware” kind, especially for the dreamer ones like me. The southern part of Bavaria, or better anything south of Munich is close to the Alps and that means that weather can change quite quickly. Especially in the months apart from winter. When I was in Pfaffenwinkel (region...

  • Be Prepared for Quick Weather Change

    As the photos in my Neuschwanstein Castle travelogue demonstrate, the summer weather in south Germany can unfortunately change from good to bad in the course of one day of sightseeing. It was the Fourth of July 2005 and the weather was gloriously sunny with not a cloud in the sky when we arrived at Hohenschwangau and started out. Our tour of the...

  • take the roundtrip to Obersee

    Take the roundtrip to Salet and Obersee, even when you have just time to explore St. Bartholomae : You have to pay 3 euros more , BUT in St.Bartholomae there will be a giant crowd of people waiting for the boat back to Schoenau am Koenigssee, while only a few people will be waiting on a SEPERATE line for the ships doing the cruise to Salet and...

  • Take care when hiking on wet paths

    We hiked on Hochfelln. When walking down the mountain, we were very fast. And suddenly, I found myself on the ground. How could that happen? I first looked for my camera, it seemed to be ok. Then I noticed that my knee war hurting. They helped me to get up. What to do? Well, no taxi there, no cable car, so I continued walking and forget about the...

  • Travel Agents - Part Two

    My second story involves a similar scenario. We wanted to stay in Fussen, the closest town to Neuschwanstein. However, both the Minotel and Best Western hotels there were booked. The travel agent was told that the nearest hotel was in Nesselwang. Actually, the hotel was listed as Nesselwang/Fussen. This couldn't be further from the truth for us....

  • Travel Agents - Part One

    If you are planning a trip with a travel agent, it may be a good thing to find one that has travelled to the area. We picked our travel agent on a recommendation from a friend and we ended up regretting our choice.She had never travelled around Germany like we planned to. When she was booking our hotels, she was unsure of how close they were to the...

  • Amor shows, where to powder your nose

    Plenty of places are offered to powder your nose on Theresienwiese / Oktoberfest.Still lots of people try to do it somewhere else in the open air, simply in order to save a few small coins...Big fines are expecting these people, so be aware of this and watch out for these little "amors", showing you the right way !

  • beware the maibock....

    Maibocks are fantastic beers, and if lucky enough to be in Munich in early May, well worth seeking out. BUT, remember they are strong beers (generally around 7%) and served in liter mugs, it is very easy to drink too much of a good thing.
