Tooling Around Berlin in an Umbrella with Wheels?

 Grego Germany’s capital is already a super-fun place to visit. And you can make it extra fun by tooling around the city in a very special kind of car. An East German company produced more than three million Trabants - cheap, ubiquitous little two-stroke-engine jalopies made out of plastic – from 1957 until 1991. And Trabis were given quite a few fond (and not so fond) nicknames, including “Racing Cardboard,” “Escape Suitcase,” “Roofed Sparkplug,” “Two-Stroke Dwarf,” and “Umbrella with…

Barging on the Rhine cited in 'Using Astrology to Plan Travel this Holiday Season' Still vibrant and popular today, the five-thousand-year-old art of astrology can identify, say, business and romantic opportunities or challenges. And those celestial bodies slinking about the stars can also help pinpoint optimal times and places for travel. And since destinations have their own astro-charts -- which interact with yours -- astrology can even serve as a kind of spiritual travel agent. It can tell you, for example, about places likely to be harmonious or challenging…

Black Forest Cake in '5 of the Best Baked Desserts from Around the World'

Mikelo If you were to imagine the best dessert or baked item in the world, then your favourite would likely be very different from your friends and family members. From childhood treats to family recipes, there are many foods that are personal to each individual and this is especially true when it comes to desserts. Sugary, sweet treats hold a lot of nostalgia for most people and often these bakes and desserts use influence from local flavours. A lot of these “desserts” are actually classed…

  • Hi everybody,

    I would like to know how identify T.O. in germany specialized in moutain destination. How should I behave?

  • Danke, Sigi and Evelyn. It's such a pleasure -- especially in this era of Tripadvisor -- to get information from people who really know what they're talking about.
  • There's enough to see in and around Berlin or Frankfurt to stay in either city. My favorite part of Berlin is around Potsdamer Platz -- like Times Square with lots of nightlife, shopping and enegry. In Frankfurt, walking through the old town, with its medieval buildings, and along the riverfront, is always interesting. Take a foodie break on Fressgasse (eating street), a pedestrian passage lined with the best of the wursts. Both cities have fabulous museums, and in Berlin you can take a guided tour in a Trabi, the often-maligned car produced in the former East Germany that now is a fashionable vintage model. Get a Eurail pass before leaving North America, and go anywhere.
  • I just found out about this deal of up to 50% off from Air Berlin: "For three days only, starting October 25 at 6pm (EST) and ending October 28 at 6pm (EST) airberlin is offering up to 50% off its already low fares from Florida to Europe.
