My other trip to Germany was on Lufthansa, and it was quite comfortable, even in the economy section. Is that something that I can just assume will be present on any transoceanic flight, and just go with whoever? Never heard of LTU, but will look into it.
What do I want to see? Well, I know that I’ll be going to Füßen to see Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein, probably. I’ve been there already, but I’m going with someone who hasn’t, and really wants to see the castles. Other than that, I’m looking for some stuff that isn’t old. I’ve gotten my fill of old German things.
When looking for hotels, how much of a drag is it to have to ride 15 minutes into town on the S-Bahn? My last trip to Munich had us staying at the Pension Locarno, a very small (15-20 rooms?) hotel, but it was reasonably priced and practically on top of the Munich Hauptbahnhof. So the Marienplatz (yeah, yeah, I know. Huge tourism etc…) was like… THERE.
As far as time goes, like I said, it’ll have to be a time when I’m out of school. I’m looking at early January, maybe, because it’ll be cheap then. (I’d like to go after Christmas, if at all possible.)
Thanks for the travelocity tip, but they didn’t have any hotel/flight combinations available, and if I did it separately, it looks like Expedia is about 100 dollars cheaper per person.
I have a travel agent friend of a friend, I just don’t know where she works. Planning on finding out today, and I might go talk to her. I’ll keep you guys posted.
