This post is a bit of a plea for information..... Basically my boyfriend and I are trying to plan a holiday for mid September and we are hoping to visit Germany for a week, taking in 3 cities in 7 days. So far we've nailed down the following plan:
- Fly from Edinburgh to Berlin
- Stay in Berlin for 2 nights
- Get the train from Berlin to Munich
- Stay in Munich for 3 nights
- Get the train from Munich to Frankfurt
- Stay in Frankfurt for 2 nights
- Fly from Frankfurt to Edinburgh
I've got as far as pricing up all the travel as best I can (like over here the trains can only be booked like 6 weeks in advance so I've had to do some educated guesswork!) and worked out that for accommodation we're looking to spend a max of £79 per night (i.e. £39.50 per person per night) - so specific eh?!
So here comes the plea.....if you've visited Berlin, Munich or Frankfurt before (or even better, you live there!) then please fire me any recommendations for places to stay* or places to eat/drink, things to do, must-see attractions etc. We will be super grateful for any suggestions as I'm getting a bit tired of trawling Tripadvisor!
*hotels, apartments (including Airbnb) and hostels (but only if they offer private rooms....we aint staying in no dorm!)
I'm so excited at the prospect of us going on a wee German adventure - we've never actually been away on holiday together for longer than 4 nights so this will be a proper treat. Also I've never done a travelling holiday like this where you visit more than one place (apart from cruises, but it doesn't really count as you don't actually stay overnight in the cities) so it will be so cool getting to experience 3 different places on the one trip.
Thanks a million in advance to anyone who has suggestions for us! :)
