  • Wunderschön and delightful!!!

    "I could not have asked for a better location for my research visit and short family vacation to Swabia. Indeed, arriving a week before my family so that I could undertake some research in Stuttgart, I was welcomed by the incredibly generous and gracious host and owner. Hedelfingen is not far at all from downtown Stuttgart (20 mins max with the U-Bahn), which made my research at the Hauptstaatsarchiv a breeze. And, the town itself is quite cute, with wonderful neighboring towns as well (e.g., Rohracker, Obertürkheim, Uhlbach, Esslingen, etc.). All amenities are within 5 mins by foot, and the links to public transportation are amazing and most convenient. When my family arrived, including 13-year-old twins, we felt right at home, and the owner made sure that we had everything we needed, like parking for our rental car. For the week that they joined me, my family and I made several excursions throughout Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria. Other reviewers have noted how ideal the location is for sightseeing, and they are not at all wrong. We visited parts of Bavaria, Lake Constance, the Black Forest, and lots of Württemberg. The property was perfect for us. We enjoyed a number of meals around the table, rested comfortably, and even spent one afternoon just relaxing and reading in the apartment. Although as an historian of Swabia I am clearly biased, I must say that modern-day Württemberg is an undiscovered gem for tourism. So much to see, so much to do, so much good food to eat, and so few tourists. The other tourist traps of Germany pale in comparison. Of course, now that I have written this, I am sure to incur the wrath of my Swabian friends, who like the fact that they are not overrun by tourists. Seriously though, I cannot overstate how pleasant, warm, and friendly this region is. There is nothing quite like walking through the "Weinberge" of Swabia. The views are amazing, and the wine is "nicht so schlimm auch." After my family returned to the States, I had another 2+ weeks of research in the city archives of Göppingen. They were most productive and most enjoyable, particularly because the transportation was so convenient to the location, everything was close by, and the owner stopped by regularly to invite me to various events. Indeed, if I hadn't had so much to do in the archives, then I easily could have spent the time exploring and enjoying the region and the warm friendship of the owner! Most highly recommended!!!"

Germany Travel Tips

Seasons to Visit Germany Vacation Rentals

Most visitors to Germany travel in the warmer summer months that run from May through September. The peak travel season is typically during June and July. In general, summer days are long with the sun only setting after eight at night. This allows plenty of time for sightseeing and other activities. In the winter, the temperatures range from mild to freezing depending on where you are in Germany. The northern and eastern parts frequently get heavy snowfall during December and January. In the south and more mountainous regions, the snow and scenic beauty attract many visitors in the wintertime.

Attractions and Activities at Germany Lodging

Germany has a rich and diverse history. In almost every town or city, there are buildings dating back to the Middle Ages, beautiful churches or cathedrals, and local legends that have become part of the local traditions. There are many museums in Germany catering to a wide range of interests. Far from boring showcase-type exhibits, modern museums include video, sound and actual artifacts to bring history to life. While traditions remain strong, Germany is a modern nation and this is reflected in the high-tech modern style of living in the cities. Restaurants and bars range from traditional eateries to quirky and sometimes bizarre-themed venues. Most people visit Germany to take in the ancient castles, museums and churches. In the summertime, the best way to explore is on foot. Enjoy a cup of coffee at a street side café and browse through the shops in between your visits to museums.

Germany Travel Tips

Getting around Germany is easy but before you set out, make sure you have a good guidebook with you. In this way, you can plan some of your travel routes and make sure you get to the sights that you really want to see. If you plan to travel by train or are spending some time in one particular city, look into purchasing a travel pass. This is often far more affordable than single route tickets. Germany is relatively safe but be aware of walking around alone at night. Like most major cities, there is always a risk of becoming a target for crime.

Getting to and Around Germany

Germany takes up a large part of Central Europe and is easily accessible by air, land and sea. The harbor at Hamburg is one of the largest and busiest in the world. While it is mostly cargo that is transported, several worldwide cruise liners also dock at Hamburg. If you already reside or are traveling in Europe, one of the best ways to get around is by train. There is an extensive rail network in Germany that links it up with the rest of Europe. High-speed intercity trains are a convenient way of traveling longer distances. Smaller towns and villages can be reached on standard trains. Some of the rail routes, such as the one from Cologne and Dusseldorf to Frankfurt, follow the scenic route along the Rhine River. This is one of the best ways to see the countryside.

There is also an extensive road network; however, you do need to be confident in your driving ability. The high-speed autobahns and inner city congestion can be somewhat intimidating if you are not used to it. Germany has several efficient international airports. The busiest is Frankfurt International Airport. This is mostly due to its central location within Germany and Europe. Other international airports include Berlin Airport and Munich Airport. From these airports, you can get domestic connections on to other cities such as Dusseldorf, Bonn, Hamburg, and Dresden.
