    Standard Suggestions for trip to germany

    #1
    Hi folks,
    I'm taking my 12 year old son for a 10-12 day trip to Germany (from Denmark) this summer.

    Any suggestions where to go?

    We like to camp out in woods and light a fire for roasting sausages.

    Perhaps the museum of natural history in Berlin.

    Bits of the 'wall'.

    Other suggestions?

    Kind regards
    Soren

    hey soren,

    open fire are mostly prohibited in whole Germany... so don't get catched or keep barbecuing on the campgrounds...

    i dunno if a 12 year old kid is interested in germany history that much... but u can try it. Berlin is a nice city to visit.

    If you are ocming from DK, Hambourg is on your way, so why don't u stop over here for a few days.

    Hambourg Dungeon

    Miniaturwunderland

    Dialoge in the Dark (discover urself being blind)

    Daytrip to the Heidepark Soltau could be fun...

    on your way to Berlin you could have a look at the Niederfinow ship lift...

    just to name a few!

    depends how much time you have, and how far south you want to go!

    cheers from hamburg

    Standard Hamburg is a must...

    ...we're stopping by the louis shop in Hamburg, perhaps a good place to spend the first night. (Hamburg, that is ... not Louis)

    Thanks for the links. The dungeon looks 'familiar' has it been open for 20+ years? I think I might have been there (or somewhere similar) as a kid.

    Hi Søren,
    yes, I do have a few suggestions, but please tell us which direction you would like to take from Hamburg.
    I think the Harz Mountain is worth a visit (Pullman City for your son?), then, of course, the Vogelsberg / Rhön, Spessart - all these destinations are within easy reach during your trip.
    Then, it may also be good to know what your son likes to do/see.

    We like to camp out in woods and light a fire
    Forget it, stay on campgrounds. If you have a navigation device, let us know and we can supply POIs.

    Greetings

    Bearloe

    We need father/son time, i.e time to just hang out, maybe do some fishing, barbecuing over open fire (camp-sites I guess?), etc.

    Last year we were in Norway and did some river rafting, which he enjoyed very much. See this:

    Denmark is almost completely cultivated: all farmland and tarmac. Not a lot of woodlands. The highest point is ~146 meters above sea level - i.e no mountains. The widest stream is 30 meters across. So we wouldn't mind some spectacular nature.

    One thing I enjoyed in Norway, was that it wasn't too crowded. I don't mind camp-sites as such, but prefer some peace and quiet. In Norway and Sweden it's allowed to peg your tent pretty much anywhere, as long as you don't stay more than one night or make a mess - not the same in Germany?

    I do have a GPS (iPhone app) which I bring along.

    Kind regards

    Hi Søren,

    Germany is by not way as rugged as Norway, so don't expect too much of it, yet it does have its beautiful spots .

    Moreover, we don't have this freedom Scandinavian countries can be so proud of - there is definitely no wild camping - except maybe if you can make arrangements with a farmer to let you stay on his property.

    Here's one out of a million possible routes for you:

    Hamburg (mentioned already) -> Lüneburg (beautiful city with a long salt trade tradition) - Berlin (mentioned already) - Dresden (check out "The Bastei) - Fulda (Rhön/Vogelsberg) - Braunlage (Harz mountain) - Hameln (along the River Weser) - Bremen (Übersee-Museum) - Hamburg - home.

    If/When you can specify your plans, I can supply more information (GPS coordinates, POIs). Does your device read gpx files?

    As for camping: you may want to check out Archies.

    Enjoy your planning

    Bearloe
