Legally you can, although you will have to convince the officer at the border control that you have clear intentions of leaving to Finland very soon and your visit to Germany is definitely temporary. Your residence permit in Finland allows staying in other Schengen countries up to 90 days of any 180-day period.

The principle is surprisingly simple: Since you need a visa and you are staying less than 90 days, you need a regular type C “uniform” Schengen visa. Many people are not aware of it but a Schengen visa is not a “visitor”, “tourism” or “business” visa, it's a short-stay visa and it can in principle cover any purpose, as long as your stay is shorter than 90 ...

Here's what you need, according to the European Commission's website for travel to Germany In addition to their own valid travel document (passport or ID card), although not obligatory by law, all minors entering or leaving Germany are advised to carry an authorisation (where possible in the languages of both the home country and the destination ...

No stopping. (The small arrow points to where you can't stop.)

What does this road sign mean? It means you should do at least the theory part of the german driving license before driving around there clueless. Here are the official rules (StVO = Straßenverkehrs-Ordnung): https://www.juris.de/purl/gesetze/_ges/StVO You should know them before even starting the car engine on a parking lot. I would never drive in ...

You are applying for a standard visitor entry clearance and you are visiting a qualified family member (your sister). Your sister lives in a council flat and hence it's hard to get the owner's permission so you want to stay in a nearby hotel or hostel. For reasons not worth going in to here, the form assumes that visitors will stay with their family and ...

If you don't want to leave the building and go to the Visitor's Park you could visit the Visitor's terrace which offers a great view to the apron and currently the construction site of terminal 2's new satellite building. The terrace is located outside the secure area. The entrance is located in the upper floor of the public area of the terminal. Source: ...

Since you are looking for products from a specific distillery or possibly advice on premium brandy, I don't think you would be well-served by supermarkets like Hit, Marktkauf, Real or Rewe. You need to track down a specialist shop. Searches for “Kirschwasser” or “Obstbrände” (fruit brandy) did not yield anything useful but looking for “Spirituose” on ...

Schladerer Kirschwasser is available in the following shopping malls: Hit Marktkauf Real Rewe City. Get a map per maps.google.de searching for the shops and if possible, order them by size (a hint: Bigger malls have longer opening hours). I do not give you a list because there are literally dozens of shops and you should not have problems to find one. ...

When I lived in Berlin a few years ago, I used to play basketball with the sport club of the Technical University https://www.tu-sport.de/index.php?id=31. It is open to people outside the university, too, and the costs are very low. Be sure to book in advance when the new semester starts/ends, because some activities tend to become booked out quickly. The ...

You don't state what sort of meditation you want to engage in. I am assuming the temporal/spiritual sort (i.e., non-secular) in this answer... You can try the Staatspark Fürstenlager (roughly "Prince's Lodge). It is 55 km due south of Frankfurt. Train access is possible (Frankfurt Hbf to Bensheim) leaving you with a half-hour walk into the park itself. ...

The EC cards where rebranded as Girocard a few years back and is only available with a bank account. There are some banks that let (almost) anyone open an account that can only carry a positive balance (as long as you aren't a US citizen or resident). That would take a week or two until you have the card. Usually banks with walk-in branches don't offer free ...

Yes, it should be possible. I opened a bank account a couple of years ago as a foreigner with just my passport and a certificate of residence (Meldebestätigung). You'll want an online bank probably, so that you can manage your account even when you go back to your country. Most online banks use an identification procedure based on post offices (Postident). ...

According to the information provided in the comments, your plan is to visit Greece, Albania, and Macedonia on a single trip. While a multi-entree type C Schengen visa seems to be sufficient for entry into Albania and Macedonia, note that this is a special case. Macedonia and Albania are independent from the Schengen area, and it is thus their choice whom ...

Another option is Bayreuth, especially if you are into Wagner :-)

Another place worth seeing is the historical town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber.
