Need advice/assistance concerning a trip to Germany next month

Jump to last reply

My husband and I booked a flight to Germany at the end of September, following 20 years of "someday..." We are headed to the Freiburg area and were supposed to be assisted by his niece, who has been living in Germany for 4 years, attending college. She encouraged us to come to Germany and said that we picked a perfect time, as many of her friends would be on school break, and she would arrange for us to sublet an apartment for the duration of our stay. We happily bought airline tickets, destination Stuttgart, September 23, and relied on her for housing. Today we received a note from the niece asking if we had arranged for hotel rooms for our 2.5 week stay, and sounding like she won't be available to act as tourguide and general trip assistant. Now we are in a panic. Anyone have any suggestions? What do we need to do at this late date to help our trip go smoothly? I booked a room in Stuttgart for the first few nights, just so we aren't stuck sleeping on our suitcases in a bus station.
Any assistance and advice concerning travel and housing in Germany would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks!
Sonya
