Have a look at Mitfahrgelegenheit. Its search will show you "Sparpreis" fares on the Bahn, busses, and people offering rides in private cars in exchange for gas money. You might also want to look at l'tur. The "Bahnreisen" section has cheap connections for one country every month. If that happens to be Switzerland, you can get a direct ICE to Basel that ...

What you got is a long-stay visa so you can indeed travel to other Schengen countries as explained in Can I visit Schengen countries on a Type-D German Visa? As far as Belgium, France, etc. are concerned you have the right to stay there for up to 90 days and in most cases you won't even see any border guards when travelling between these countries and ...

I also checked in on the Bahn.de site and found that it is a 2 hour plus journey, even by fast train. That means that there is likely no local buses that can make your journey fast and cheap, there are long distance buses and you will find more lower down this answer. The standard cost of the tickets is €80. The savings fare means that you book your ticket ...

As long as you stay completely in the Schengen region, you don't need to re-enter, which means you don't need a multi-entry visa for a flight from Germany to France. It's similar to a domestic flight, essentially there's no difference in terms of visa issues between flying Frankfurt-Munich and Frankfurt-Paris. Obviously you should make sure the number of ...

Per the commentary on your question... To complain about a refusal, you need to prepare your complaint as a letter and send it to the consulate that issued the refusal. If you send it to a higher authority they will simply forward your letter to the consulate. Complaints cannot be escalated unless the original consulate has had the opportunity to examine ...

The best way to find out whether you need a reservation on a certain train is to look up the train in a rail planner. I use the German planner for this, as it is easy to use and gives good information. Enter the cities you want to travel and adjust date and time of day, if traveling more than a few months from the time you check, just pick a random date but ...

The fortifications on top of Pilatus would, on a fine day, combine military history with stunning scenery, and entirely doable from Zurich as a day-trip (train to Luzern, bus no 1 to Kriens and cable-car. The cog railway would take you much longer).

Wifi is available on the majority of ICE trains (>90%), but it is not guaranteed to work (so you won't get a rebate in case it does not work). Also, Wifi is only available on certain tracks, as seen on this map: http://www.bahn.de/p/view/mdb/bahnintern/mdb_174376_karte_railnet_2015.pdf Whether you get Internet on your trip also depends on the route that ...

In a nutshell, everything is possible: dropping the car off in another German city, renting in Austria and dropping it off in Germany or vice versa. You will pay a premium for one-way rentals and then extra on top of that for cross-border one-way rentals. But you can do it with all the major international brands. Beyond that, German motorways are not quite ...

Start at the end, by arranging the flight out of Germany. Choose the city of departure that is the most convenient regarding prices and schedules. This way you will have fixed three parameters: the arrival in Bucharest and departure from Bucharest as well as the departure from Germany. Then, choose a flight between Bucharest and Germany. Choose again a ...

If this doesn't affect the price of your flight tickets, I would suggest to fly to one city, e.g. Berlin, drive to the other end of Germany, eg. Munich while stopping at Frankfurt or Nuremberg and then fly home. I see little sense in driving back to the arrival airport, unless this affects the price of the flight tickets or the rental car (one-way rentals ...

You don't specify which nationality you have, which would be helpful in this case. You could arrive earlier and enter with a tourist visa, assuming that your nationality would let you enter as a tourist without needing a visa. If that's not the case, and your visa is in fact a tourist visa, you can always wait in the airport before "entering" the ...

For the first point, it will really depend on the immigration officer. Arrival at 20:30 means presenting your papers at 21-22:00 depending on the lineup. They might consider that you won't get to your hotel before nearly midnight, or they might say "have a seat". For the second point, I think there is a very high chance the airline will deny boarding. They ...

You can apply for a UK Visitor (general) visa in any country that you entered legally. The only stipulation is that you must remain outside of the UK while your application is being processed and there must be a designated issuing post in that country. Nationality of the applicant does not matter. This is covered in Paragraph 28 of the rules... An ...

The idea behind the employment letter is strong ties to your home country and steady income, and since you are not an employee this will not be required. A student ID should do. However, since you are a student you will need to prove that you can fund your trip, a good bank account statement or a letter from the sponsor will be mandatory.

€19 is the lowest fare that's generally available for buses. Fares vary depending on the how full each bus is, so booking either four weeks or more in advance or online very close to departure is the best way to secure the cheapest price. You can compare prices on Busbud (full disclosure: I work on this project). There are 12+ buses a day, most are run by ...

Have you tried to rideshare with a website such as blablacar? usually people will let you car pool with them into Germany for about 20 euros each way.

Be sure to check out the club map – it shows clubs that may be closer than you think, especially around Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg.

No matter what you do, you will enter the Schengen area in Frankfurt. Flights to Amsterdam and other destinations in the Schengen area depart from another set of gates than flights out of the Schengen area and you will have to go through a passport check and get an entry stamp to reach them. By contrast, when you land in Amsterdam, there won't be any ...
