G'day Joanne

we would need more information than a date and a city to help.

Where are you departing from? How much do you plan to pay for the flights?

Cheers,

actually the date i stated is for business trip. and i would like to extend my trip to go somewhere else but undecided! any suggestion for nearby places? thanks :)

Joanne See (158 days ago)

So I am thinking about Munich and Austria... for the extension. Any recommended budget hotel or hostel? What is the best way to get from Berlin to Munich and Munich to Austria? Any mustn't missed spots?

G'day Joanne

I haven't been to Munich but I have been to Vienna recently (December 2013).

You can take the train within Germany and to Austria. They are fast, reliable and cheap. I can recommend the place I stayed at in December 2013 and the one I stayed at in August 2008. Both close to Westbahnholf (railway station) and both budget-friendly.

One of them is Do Step Inn (http://www.reservations.bookhostels.com/bootsnall.com/hosteldetails.php?HostelNumber=5513&PHPSESSID=178127362-1405200553czxZQjl3becR7j6K4z4yM2) . You can find more options just by running a search on hostels.bootsnall.com

I could even suggest Bratislava and Budapest if you want to extend it a bit further. There are boats from Vienna to Bratislava and they take about 2 1/2 h to cover the distance. Plus they are cheap and a fun way to travel around.

Let me know if you have other questions.

Cheers,
Cristina

which train did you Cristina? How much does it cost?

Cristina Puscas (144 days ago)

G'day Joanne

I took the train from Arad, Romania to Bratislava, Slovakia and a month-valid ticket was about 100 euros for 2 people, round trip (without the seats, which are 4.50 euros/ person/ seat).

The train I boarded in Budapest said it went all the way to Berlin via Prague.

I use bahn.de to look up trains. For trains going to Germany , you can also book them from the site.

And the boat from Bratislava to Vienna costs between 20 and 30 euros / person / one way depend on the time of year. http://www.panorama.sk/en/guide/vienna-bratislava-by-boat/2310

Let me know if you have other questions.

Cheers,

Anybody knows any good budget hotel in Berlin?

Cristina Puscas (143 days ago)

You can run a search here: http://hotels.bootsnall.com/cheap-hotels-in-berlin.html

and then just read the reviews.

The map can help you choose an area which is easily reached from the airport/ train station.

i am wondering, what range is considered cheap in Germany?

Cristina Puscas (143 days ago)

I can tell you for Austria (Vienna) 30-40 euros/ night / double is cheap. Likewise , in Budapest or Bratislava the same applies. Probably Berlin would be a bit more expensive in this regard.

Cheers,
Cristina
