My wife, daughter, grandson and myself are going to hit germany and a few other northern europe locations at the end of March. I have been there through the military, but years ago and frankly I’m a bit scared. Looking to save, so public transportation and hostels are a must. Looking for all help. Thanks.

Hi Bill, it’s normal to be a bit scared but that also sounds like an exciting adventure! You might find a few helpful pointers in our Germany Tripbooks:


These might be useful city-wise but also to get a general feel for what to expect. We have plenty of similar guides for other European countries, so have a browse for those too.

Now is also a great time to book hostels in Northern Europe too since we’re holding a promotion in that area until 15th February. If you book in Hamburg, Munich and Berlin, there’s no booking fee and you get free eMembership for yourself, your wife and grandchildren:


I hope this helps, and have a wonderful trip.

Thanks for these. I’m adding a bunch of paperclips to my travel-go-bag right away. The sarong is also useful as a scarf. Here’s my tip: Dr. Bronner’s liquid soap. Cleans bike grease off hands, so it’ll clean anything.

An essential for travelling is a little LED flashlight, even better if it is attached to a headband for hands-free operation. Useful as a private reading light for hostels, and for reading maps at night or for those occasions when the power goes out.

Great one we missed! Thanks Pauline.
