With limitations, you are allowed to take the bicycle on the train, but I would not count on being able to bring the box if the bicycle is still packed, since it exceeds with large margins the allowed luggage size (no side longer than 90cm). If the bicycle is packed in a box, it might even be somewhere between very difficult and impossible to get it down to ...

The railways do not care who is travelling. Trains do not have passenger manifests, there are no pre-boarding ID checks. If you had bought this ticket at a ticket office at the station there would have been no names at all on it. Trains operate on a "proof of payment" principle. The railways are only interested whether you paid. Tickets bought at the ...

Most restaurants and attractions will close on Christmas Eve at 16:00 or earlier. Even the Christmas Market at the airport will close at 17:00. Many will reopen on the 25th (e.g. Circus Krone, Therme Erding, Sea Life, Hellabrunn zoo). Restaurants Some restaurants (and some clubs) will be open on Christmas Eve (in German, try DeepL for translations). ...

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 ...

As we have discussed here before, Munich is an extraordinarily efficient airport. Even when things are really bad I wouldn't expect immigration (you need a Schengen visa to go to Munich btw) to take more than 30 minutes, typically less than ten. So by all means you will be out in less than an hour, with a little luck it can be as little as 30 minutes (I ...

They are locations of the same company, but depending on locations, car selection will vary significantly, and prices might vary too: It is quite expensive to store a lot of cars downtown, as space is expensive, so if you rent downtown, you probably pay a higher price. Similary, renting at an airport often has additional fees included, 20 to 30% extra is ...

A boxed bicycle is bulky luggage not approved for transportation on the S-Bahn. While you might get away with it you should rather not count on it. Staff will have the final say on each individual case. The MVG - operating Munich's S-Bahn - states (source, emphasis mine): Für die Beförderung in unseren Verkehrsmitteln zugelassen [..] Übrige ...

All offices are operated by the same company and you can expect similar service in all branches. Prices do however vary a lot depending on the location of the station. Just a check for tomorrow gives me prices between €110 and €170 for a daily rental of the same car depending on where you pick it up. The office at the main railway station is with €145 one ...

do i still need a visa in Germany? No, your visa is good for this itinerary. When you land in Germany your immigration will be processed and then the onward flight will be domestic (within Schengen Area).

On the German train website it is/used to be normal to buy a ticket for several people on the name (and ID) of one of them. The person named on the ticket have to travel, the other(s) may be replaced by other people, as long as they meet the same age group and other restrictions (if any.) There were no restrictions on the nationality or location of living ...

Your flight would be entirely on Star Alliance carriers and thus in Munich’s terminal 2. You would be incoming on a Schengen flight and transferring to a non-Schengen flight. Furthermore, all flights are on the same ticket. Terminal 2 is just one long building plus a smaller satellite building; the two are connected by an automated people mover underground. ...

United and Lufthansa are both Star Alliance, so checking the bags through should be no problem, simply ask for it when checking in at O'Hare. Cyprus is not in Schengen, so you will not have to enter the Schengen area in Munich. You can stay airside in Munich und transfer to the Lufthansa flight directly. No need for customs or immigration. Immigration and ...
