The owner of a parcel station will know what delivery company can use that specific station. Identify the parcel station(s) you would like to use (they will have names or ID numbers), then email the owners of the parcel station(s) and ask how to ship from Germany to their parcel station. The owner should be able to advise you what shippers use their parcel ...

The third bullet is the important point. Can I enter Germany as my first entry point now ? It is 100% OK to enter through a different country to the one that granted your visa. This is totally normal and fine. Are there any stamping issues associated with that during the Immigration check in on Airport? No. You have a schengen visa and you're entering ...

Can't really answer for how to change your ticket or if you will be allowed on board with a ticket for a different train, but from Augsburg to Paris, you have the following alternatives you can still book (and thus possibly exchange your ticket for?): Augsburg 03:57 (in the morning, or night rather) - Stuttgart 05:36 // 05:54 - Paris 10:05 Augsburg 07:05 - ...

The dimensions of the lockers are as follows. Small locker: 420 x 800 x 273 mm (~ 90L) Large locker: 615 x 930 x 472 mm (~ 270L) (https://community.bahn.de/questions/1582543-schliessfacher-frankfurt-hauptbahnhof-aktuelle-preise - please note that this information is from 2018) If your bags can be arranged into that volume, then you should be fine.

From the description, this sounds more like proof that you are employed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and not in itsself a travel document. This card can used togeather with your passport to all Schengen Countries. This is something you should really ask your employer and not here. Carta d'identità M.A.E.

According to a comment on yelp.de, the restaurant Zum Mühlberg is also called Schnitzelfabrik: Die Schnitzelfabrik wird das Gasthaus auch genannt die waren früher schon in Reperndorf erste Sahne Riesen Portionen und auch günstig. Kein Nobelschuppen sondern ne schöne kleine Kneipe mit Biergarten. Translation: The inn is also called schnitzel factory, ...

The only way to deal with such a problem is to send them a letter informing them of this situation togeather with a printout of the agreed appointment. Only with specific samples will it be possible to determine that the agreed appointment had been deleted afterwards by whom and if it was justified

The Deutsche Museum has some tour suggestions (flyer, app) and the app apparently also has a list of top 10 stations. The tour suggestions are about 2 h each, but they are composed of several topic tours and demonstrations that you can combine as you wish and as fits into your schedule. There is also a guided overview tour, again of 2 h. Personally, I'd ...

A Blaue Plakette was proposed by environment organizations, but not (yet?) implemented. It's complicated: You need a green Umweltplakette. In addition, some diesel cars are not allowed: Emissionsklasse Euro 4/IV or below in the whole city Emissionsklasse Euro 5/V or below on some streets (starting January 2020) additional restrictions might be ...

Stuttgart hast official information about the "Umweltzone" in the city: https://www.stuttgart.de/umweltzone Quote: "Das heißt, dass Ihr Auto eine grüne Umwelt-Plakette benötigt, um in Stuttgart zu fahren und zu parken." Loose translation: "You need a GREEN Umwelt-Plakette to drive and park within Stuttgart." So you should be fine.


2

That certainly is not an official website. The actual official website for Stuttgart says that you can drive with the green Umweltplakette. Umweltzonen werden mit einem rechteckigen Schild gekennzeichnet. In besonders gekennzeichneten Umweltzonen ist das Fahren mit einer Umweltplakette dann erlaubt, wenn dies durch ein Zusatzschild ausgewiesen ist. Auf ...

The Christmas market is right in the center of the city at the Kurhaus (Collonades). https://visit.baden-baden.de/en/events/baden-baden-christmas-market . There are plenty of hotels within easy walking distance. As the comment mentioned, the main action starts late afternoon/early evening when it's getting dark, since the illuminations are a lot more fun ...

It is certainly possible to buy these both in the country, and from overseas. However, as the information changes regularly, I'm going to link to the Prepaid Wiki for Germany. Telekom has the best available coverage and speed, but o2+e-plus will be the cheapest. Weekly rates are harder to find, you either go for daily or monthly packages.

Try the supermarket Netto or Aldi. They have prepaid cards with internet. You must activate the simcard on the marked website.

Prepaid Data SIM Card Wiki has a pretty lengthy post on SIM cards for Germany (and many other countries). As you're be staying in the city coverage on all 3 major networks should be fine, but looks like O2 is the cheapest at the cost of reliability (again, in the city it shouldn't matter that much). You can refer to the specific operators' pages to check ...

This is a badly formed question because your passport expiry is the same as the Brexit crash-out date! So you are only asking about 2 use cases: a) Britain still in EU, or b) passport is expired. Black-boxing Traveler's link: After a crash-out Brexit, you cannot travel on an expired passport end of inquiry. Anti-DV Disclaimer: I'm referring to a UK ...

As I understand it. Under the brexit deals that were negotiated by the government but not passed by Parliament there is supposed to be a transition period lasting at least until the end of 2020. Freedom of movement would continue during this transition period. So you would be ok to travel in February on your existing passport. On the other hand, in the ...

One option you can consider is that Lufthansa has a partnership with Deutsche Bahn, the German train operator. You can go to Lufthansa.com and make a single booking consisting of a flight from San Francisco to Frankfurt (operated by either United or Lufthansa) and a train ticket from Frankfurt to Cologne, with a guaranteed connection in case your flight is ...

Frankfurt Airport has a long distance train station attached to the airport, with a direct link to Cologne. The train Frankfurt - Cologne is pretty much the fastest train run in the country. It is one of the few places in Germany where the ICE actually runs at 300km/h (I have a picture to prove it!), and there is only 1 stop in between, the trip takes about ...

Alternatives for Frankfurt, which has the best connection to Cologne, are Amsterdam (AMS, Schiphol airport, the Netherlands) and Paris, (CDG, Charles de Gaulle, France) and likely a couple more I did not check. The travel time from the USA to Europe will be about the same, maybe a bit less, but not a lot. Both cities I mentioned have direct trains to ...

There are only two German airports that have non-stop service from San Francisco: Frankfurt and Munich. Frankfurt is closer by about 170 miles. The official flight time difference is not meaningful: 11h 10m vs 11h 15m. Random factors, like wind, weather, gate traffic, taxiing, etc is going to make more of a difference than the actual distance. Technically ...

The most commonly used airports for such a trip are: Frankfurt International Airport (FRA) Dusseldorf International Airport (DUS) Both are served by US-American Airlines from the US. There are also non-stop flights to Frankfurt, which you may want to prefer. Airport Cologne-Bonn (CGN) is actually closer, but less commonly used for such trips. Trying to ...

There are multiple luggage storage services in Frankfurt airport including one that's open 24/7 and the service is reasonably priced. See https://www.frankfurt-airport.com/en/travel/transfer.detail.suffix.html/article/travel/luggage/storage.html However, there are no services that would hold your bag and then check it in for you later. You will have to do ...

She can't get a student visa. She would be asked to disclose all her current and past citizenships, and once she mentions the current Czech one she is no longer eligible. Since NZ is an Annex II country, she could arrive visa-free on her NZ passport and sort things out in Germany. That would leave an entry stamp with no matching exit in the passport, but the ...

Residents of the European Union are not eligible for VAT tax refunds when taking goods outside the European Union. Since you are not a visitor (i.e. no entry stamp based on the 90/180 days rule), but a resident (you have a residence permit), customs will see that you are not eligible after a quick look at your passport. You should, however, look into the ...
