Can be done but it's not clear if it's worth it. I would get a rental car: it's more cost efficient for 4 people, offers a lot of flexibility and you can drive on the Autobahn Drive Friday night from Düsseldorf to a larger town close to the Schwarzwald. Karlsruhe or Baden Baden perhaps. Stay the night at a regular hotel. Check Travelocity for options. ...

Have you considered simply going directly to Munich and spending the whole weekend there? It's a fantastic city. Just take the train to Munich, no need to rent a car, and enjoy the city. Be sure to choose (any) hotel in the old town, or you miss the whole point. If you do for some reason want to see "the Black Forest" you realistically need a car. (It's an ...

As others already have said, a lot of people speak good English in Germany - especially in large ...

Not very severe. In Munich as with most of Germany, automated transport ticket machines can be changed easily to a number of different languages. Physical German signs are mostly in German but their alphabet is very similar to English so can be easily memorised when you need to know certain place names. However, Munich is a very walkable city which I would ...

You'll be fine. Especially young people or people in tourism-related jobs speak good English. Public transport is well-organized and easy to navigate. It might help you to plan your trips and tickets ahead of time (i.e. where you are changing subway lines and what ticket you need - they have a rather complicated zones system so you might just want to get a ...

Because you're arriving from outside the Schengen area and going to a destination outside the Schengen area, yes, there will be a separate way for transit passengers. This is specifically so they can reach their outbound flights without passing through passport control. If you are authorized, that is, if you have or do not need a visa to enter Germany, and ...
