Beautiful Fountain, Nuremberg – Germany

Beautiful Fountain, Nuremberg - Germany

Nuremberg was an unexpected surprise for me. I went here solely to see the museum that stands at the Nazi party rally grounds (more on that later). What I didn’t expect to find was an old town which was worthy of more time that I had allocated for Nuremberg. At the old market square I […]

Man-birds of Offenburg – Germany

Man-birds of Offenburg - Germany

Travelling long distances by rail in Europe will often require one or two changes of train. On my trip from Strasbourg to Nuremberg I had about ninety minutes between connecting trains in Offenburg (which made three types of bergs in one day). Hitherto that day I had never heard of Offenburg, but I as the […]

Munich Airport Train

Flughafen Train Timetable - Munich

Whenever I travel to Germany I always leave with a feeling of awe and envy at German transport and infrastructure. I got the train to Munich Airport from Munich Hauptbahnhof at a ridiculously early hour. Trains run regularly 24 hours a day. This photo is the train schedule at 3 in the morning. [Flughafen Train […]
