Best Budget Tips in Berlin and Munich (and the rest of Germany)

Jump to last reply

Hello Fodorites! As the Germany editor, I've been a lurker here for a while reading your wonderful advice and entertaining trip reports. I'm coming out of the shadows to ask you for your best budget tips for Berlin, Munich, and everywhere else in Germany. As you know, the dollar is hurting so I’m looking for any recommendations on how to beat the Euro with budget hotels and restaurants in the major cities and the small towns; where to ski without breaking the bank; where the free wine tastings and cheap Rieslings are; the best value beer gardens; free tours or festivals; free days for sightseeing, etc.

I found this thread: which has a lot of great tips already on train passes, renting apartments, and finding budget hotels on town websites.

I'd like to include a section of your recommendations in the next edition of our Germany guide. Just like our other Word of Mouth features, if you're quoted you're eligible for a complimentary guide of your choice. There’s no such thing as a free lunch, but here’s to searching out a reasonable one, even with the exchange rate!
