The long awaited trip report! Part 6 - Germany-FINAL

Jump to last reply

So...we are down to our last week! :(

Lets start with the train ride from Prague to Berlin!

The Prague station has no English and the people aren't really that helpful especially why your online ticket is in German it made it difficult to know where to go and what to do!

Thankfully we managed to find the board with the arrival and departures and DH was able to find the train station layout. This allowed us to get to the train in ample.

However, for some reason our cartridge was not listed on the door...so this made life a little difficult but nevertheless we found our seats with time to spare since the train was delayed by 15min!

Thankfully I had bought first class which meant we had a compartment that was air condition as the other areas weren't and I. That heat it was pretty much unbearable! It was even hot I. Our air on section!

Now the drama... The train. Stopped In the middle of nowhere for a good hour! The reasons given were in German and not English but I asked a German and was told it was due to another train and the. It was due to the idiots that got off the. Train and then had to get back on!

So we arrived in Berlin at 9pm I stead of 7pm ...bit different who you have 2 kids needing dinner!

Anyhow ...here we were in Berlin ...for the first time we struggled to get a taxi ! Due to luggage and 2 children we had to have a minivan ...however the station wagon in Prague coped fine! And the golf in genoa also coped!

We got to our hotel, checked in and went out for dinner.

Thankfully our hotel was in a great location with restaurants just over the bridge...but they are not that cheap but also not too expensive ..around 15euros maybe a bit less per meal.

So that was day one!
