München is the safest city I’ve ever been. At least this is how it feels. Because nothing is for free you have to pay a high price for this. Everything is very expensive. By everything I mean: hostel, hotel, restaurants, public transportation, taxi. At least the most expensive I’ve ever been, even compared to New York City seems expensive. Well, I haven’t been to Oslo, Zurich or Tokyo, maybe they are more expensive.
They really like bikers, which is an absolute positive thing, and the traffic is calm. Also public transportation is easy to use and there are free Wi-Fi at some stops. By the way, München is home for the well known BMW car factory, the famous football team: Fußball-Club Bayern München e.V. and hosts the Oktoberfest.
Here is the gallery, later I will add a video as well.
To me Stuttgart definitely seems to be the industry capital of Germany. Arriving with a train a huge Mercedes sign welcomes you, then the map of transportation, every direction is so obvious. You can tell that it has been made with very precise engineering. In case you’re not sure about this after having a walk […]
Worm is situated on the Rhine river and has existed since before Roman times. The Cathedral of st Peter is one of the oldest churches from Germany, even though only the ground plan and the lower part of the western towers belong to the original building consecrated in 1110.
The Luther Monument can also be found in Worms, not far away from the railway station.
The turkish food I had is just amazing and it costs like any other fast food burger.
Frankenstein Castle, found on the top of Frankenstein Burg close to Darmstadt-Hesse is a nice hiking area filled with hikers and mountain bike riders. The area is quiet and gives you enough opportunities to find your own trail.
As walking by you can discover to ruins of the old castle from around 1200, we met an older historian who told us about Frankensteins legend. By the legend the person was doing experiments with dead bodies and he was actually able to make them move. But no magic here for somebody from the XXI. century. The secret is that he connected the corpses to an electrical network, the electricity made the muscles to move. Back in the old days who ever saw that it might believe that this is a miracle, it was indeed 🙂 Just for the record, the entrance is free to the castle yard, but if you are nice you can leave some euros in the box.
Wiesbaden in my eyes is the city of elegance. Situated next to Mainz, on the other side of Rhein. The Marktkirche church is simply stunning. Situated in the Schloßplatz (Palace Square) is something what you really need to check out on your way through Wiesbaden. Also the building of Spielbank and the garden with fountains is something very pretty.
Mainz is a place which totally filled me with joy. Mainz is situated in the curve of Rhein and filled like a spiderweb with bicycle roads. That is awesome! I believe bike is all what you need for transportation in a city like that. If more would choose bikes instead of cars the pollution would be less and health would be much widespread. As far as I can tell people in Mainz did that successfully.
