Is your total time in Germany 7 days, or do you have 7 days for the trip, i.e. excluding time spent in Munich and Berlin?

comment European countries “shut down” in August?
@unit3000-21: I'm not sure about how "closed down" it gets, but at least you won't have as severe traffic jams since summer holidays are different between the Cantons (same as in Germany).

comment European countries “shut down” in August?
It's absolutely not true that such things don't happen in northern Europe. From what I've heard, Sweden and Finland are very similar in this regard.

comment Do I need a towel in saunas in Germany?
@Alex: maybe there is a misunderstanding, or people just politely ignored your faux pas. The rule is often posted as "no sweat on the wood". If you sit on the bottom bench and put your feet on the floor, that would be fine. But if you sit higher and put your feet on the lower benches, there should be a towel underneath.

comment Reliability of prepaids for foreign calls such as Lebara, Ortel… what to take into account?
I think "Netz belegt" means "network overloaded", not "recipient already talking".

comment What is the shortest layover in Istanbul that would let me visit The Blue Mosque?
@Kate Gregory: The Hagia Sophia is currently a museum, not an active mosque. It is closed on Mondays.

If the Blue Mosque is closed due to prayers, the Hagia Sophia is right next to it. If that is closed as well (happened to me), the Topkapi palace is in 10 minutes' walking distance. Both these alternatives are IMO worth seeing as much as the Mosque.

comment Sunbathing naked in public parks in Germany
@Łukasz Lech: Here's the official designation of the Munich city administration: muenchen.de/rathaus/Stadtverwaltung/Kreisverwaltungsreferat/… - there may be signs but I've never noticed them. There are definitely signs for the areas on lakes around Munich.

Actually, in Munich it's a widely told story that back in the 70s when FKK as a Hippie thing got big in Munich, naked people would swim down the Eisbach creek and take the tram to get back. Even though they were naked and not paying, people eventually got used to it and even the police stopped bothering.

Come to Munich The tourism office is officially concerned about the increasing lack of nude sunbathers, causing disappointment among tourists who've read about it in their tavel guide. And yes, most of the remaining nudists are old-timers.
