    So, hubby and I are planning a week long trip in May sometime next year to Frankfurt Germany. My company from work gave us some free airline tickets, and we are going!! Anyways, looking for advice. Any tips for Germany? Places we must visit.
    We are planning on renting a car. Not sure on hotels yet.
    We are in the process of renewing our passports for travel.
    We have been to Ireland and london, a few years back (more like 6years ago). So traveling abroad is familiar to us. However going to Germany is not.
    I have to say, I am proud to be half german born. My mother is full blooded german, but knows nothing about germany. (sigh) I was even thinking on taking a college class how to learn to speak german? thanks for any advice!!!!!! [​IMG]

    I've never been so I can't help. But take lots of picures and post them when you get back. I've always wanted to go and even took some German it high school.
    Hubby is 1/4th german his Grandfather came over in the 20's and he was born in the 1890s! Gotta say those german guys like hubby that are dark hair/skinned are wicked cute [​IMG]
    If I ever went I know DH and I've talked the place we want to see is the black forrest.

    Go south to the German Alps. I also visited Germany. I went to buy a show dog. The breeder was in the north. I was sorry that I never made it south.
