  • Repeat visitors -- love the tapestry and the apartment

    "My husband and I returned a few weeks ago from our 7th stay (in the last eight years) in Fabrice's wonderful apartment: we have stayed in four other apartments in Paris (twice in larger places with other people, once elsewhere when this was booked, and once in his other apartment) but keep returning to Fidelio because we love it. Yes, the mattress is very firm but we bring a flat sheet for cover and layer the blanket, duvet, and quilt and we are fine. The bathtub is the perfect size and shape for me and the slope at the back makes it extremely comfortable for a nice relaxing soak! Never had a problem with a lack of hot water. We cook often and the kitchenette is well equipped (like the new microwave!). The washer/dryer is a great help. There are shelves of books -- helpful and interesting. The air conditioner keeps the apartment cool in the summer and the heater keeps it comfortably warm in the winter. Be aware that there are stairs: 45 up to the apartment in addition to the 83 up from the Metro, but that helps balance out all the lovely Parisian pastries! And, yes, there are timed lights on the stairs, one switch is just by the apartment door. We love the area: only a very short walk from the Saint Michel RER station (great if coming from Orly or CDG) and the Metro (if coming from Gare de l'Est). There are numerous restaurants, creperies, and bakeries a short distance away and a Monoprix within easy walking distance. Notre-Dame, St.Severin, and Cluny are all close by. In addition to all of this, Fabrice is very charming and helpful. Need I say that we plan to keep coming back!"

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.
