Berlin Wall

Of all the places in Germany, one of the places that everyone should visit, if at all possible, is the Berlin wall. Although there are only some sections of the wall that are left, it's an important piece of history and it's something that most people are going to remember, when the Berlin Wall came down.

Tiergarten

This is the central park of Berlin, and it's a really big stretch of formal gardens, leafy walkways and parkland in the west of the city. Before the 1830s, it had been used for hunting. Now it houses the German President's home, a collection of memorials and sculptures, lakes and canals, and a lot of shady avenues. The avenues in the park merge on the Victory tower, which is topped with a beautiful gilt angel. There are 285 steps which lead to the tower's top to be treated to Berlin's beautiful views.

Romantic Road

This road provides truly spectacular views of the wonderful Bavarian landscape as well as its breathtaking castles. It had been one of the trade routes during the middle ages, and it winds through walled towns, charming villages, and picturesque countryside. It is also home to baroque Renaissance, Medieval, and German architecture. The Alps and fairytale castles finish the picture.

Planning your Trip

Things always seem to go better when they are carefully planned and flying to another destination is no exception. Plan well and all things being equal, you should have an uneventful trip with less stress. Here are the top tips:

Before you leave

  • Ensure that you have your airline tickets, vouchers for hotel bookings, car rental and/or airport shuttle transfers, your passport, visa (if required), money, credit cards and travellers cheques. If you are renting a car at your destination, make sure you have your driver's licence (paper and photo) and, if necessary, an international drivers permit. These items should all be kept in your hand luggage.
  • Familiarise yourself with the 'banned item' list, these change from time to time, but it is important to know what can go in your hand luggage, what must go in the hold and what you simply cannot take with you.
  • Avoid wrapping items such as gifts or presents because these may be opened by security at your departing or destination airport.
  • If you are taking essential medicines, ensure that that they are in their original packaging and, if they are prescription drugs, try and get a letter from your doctor confirming that these have been prescribed for you. Also remember, that is some countries, certain drugs are banned, even if you have been prescribed them by your doctor. If in doubt, check with the airline and/or embassy.
  • Make sure that you choose comfortable clothing, especially if it is a long journey, also be cognisant of the weather at your destination, which may influence your choice of clothes.
  • Check the weight of your luggage. Most airlines have a strict policy on exceeding baggage limits and airport surcharges can be very expensive. In addition, some airlines will not allow you to pay in excess at checkin, which could lead to delays and inconvenience.

Heading for the airport

  • Always remember to allow plenty of time to arrive at the airport. As a general rule, if you are taking an international flight, you should aim to be at the airport at least 2 hours prior to departure. For local or domestic flights, at least one hour.
  • Make sure you know what terminal you are departing from, some airports are very large and the distance between the terminal buildings can be considerable.
  • Allow plenty of time to get to the airport. Road maintenance often happens at night, and this can occasionally lead to unexpected road closures, so check before you travel and allow ample time for your journey. If you are travelling during the day, then traffic may become your curse, once again, check on travel information sites and allow extra time for unexpected delays.
  • If you are driving to the airport yourself, it is advisable to book your airport parking in advance. Many websites no offer this service and it can be much cheaper than attempting to find parking on arrival.
  • If you are using public transport to get to the airport, then make sure you have booked advance tickets and also, that there are no planned maintenance (in respect of railways) or anticipated road works in the case of coach travel.
  • If you are travelling by hire car and intend to leave it at the airport, make sure the rental company has facilities to allow you to drop it off. Not all car rental companies have airport facilities, many are located just outside.

On arrival at the airport terminal

  • Since 2001, airport security has been tightened considerably and, on occasion, additional security measures are employed at very short notice. As a consequence, the amount of time taken to go through airport security has lengthened considerably and it can also be unpredictable, especially if additional measures have been introduced.
  • Make sure you are familiar with what you can take through security, particularly in relation to banned items and liquids. Remember, even if you have purchased something at the airport (such as drinks), you may not be able to take it through security and/or on the airline.
  • You must keep your baggage with you at all times. In part because of the security issues at airports, but also because it will almost certainly contain your essential travel documents and you would not want to lose them or have them stolen. You should never look after the belongings of other people or agree to carry anything onto the aircraft on their behalf.
  • Once you are through passport control and security, make sure you keep a close eye on the 'departure boards', many airport no longer make verbal announcements and you need to know which gate number your flight is departing from. Also consider the amount of time it takes to get from where you are to the gate, some airport are very large, such as Heathrow and it can take up to 30 minutes to get to the gate.

On the plane

  • If you are going on a long journey, then try to relax and get some sleep. For shorter journeys you may want to read a book, watch a movie or listen to music on your MP3 player. So make sure you have packed laptops, tablets and/or music players into your hand luggage.
  • It is advisable not to eat too much on long haul flights, because this can lead to an inability to sleep or indigestion. Move around the aircraft as much as you can to keep your circulation working. If you have flight socks, then consider using them.
  • Avoid too much alcohol, but drink plenty of other beverages to avoid dehydration.
  • Even if you are a seasoned traveller, it is worthwhile spending a few minutes to decide exactly what you need from your hire car. 
  • When considering the type of vehicle you wish to hire, consider the passengers and the luggage. Hiring a Suzuki jeep for 4 people with luggage could really be a problem. All too often hirers count the seats, but not the luggage.
  • If you are going on holiday and want to relax consider carefully whether you want a manual or automatic gearbox. 
  • Most cars have air conditioning as standard, but some of the economy vehicles may not, therefore if this is important to you, check carefully before you book and upgrade to the next model if necessary.
  • If you are not familiar with the country you are travelling to, then you need to think ahead. Planning the journey from your arrival airport to your destination is often overlooked. Do you need a local map, SatNav or will you take written directions? There is nothing worse than arriving at the airport in the middle of the night and getting lost! 
  • Do you need booster seats, child seats or a ski rack? These are often available from the hire companies at an additional charge, but they have to be booked in advance.  
  • Will you be the only driver? Some rental companies will allow a second driver at no additional charge (or for a small fee), but this needs to be booked in advance.
  • It is recommended that you remove the identiying tag from the car key ring and keep it in a safe place until the termination of your hire to avoid highlighting that you are a tourist and using a rental car. 
  • One Way Hires or dropping the car off at a different location can be convenient, but expensive. Most car hire companies allow this option, but it is worth checking the difference between these options and returning the car to the airport terminal. 
  • Check the terms of your hire carefully. Some rental companies will supply the car with a full tank of petrol and will expect you to return it with a full tank. If you don’t, then there could be additional charges levied and the cost of fuel may not be the most competitive. If your car is not provided with a full tank of petrol then you should plan to stop as early as possible refuel. 
  • Before you accept the car, make sure you check the condition carefully, noting any damage, including scratches, dents, tyres or windscreen damage. You should ensure that these are written on the handover form to avoid any arguments when the vehicle is returned. Also remember that, as the driver, you are responsible for ensuring that the hire car meets local road and traffic regulations, this includes, but is not limited to tyres, lights, wipers and brakes. If you are not happy, reject the vehicle and ask for an alternative. 
  • Above all, familiarise yourself with the car before you drive. Being in a different country with an unfamiliar car can be stressful. Take your time.
  • Rules of the road and more specifically traffic laws and regulations vary enormously between different countries. Therefore, whilst your drivers licence may be valid, your appreciation of local driving laws may not. To avoid frustration, fines, arrest or accidents, all travellers would be well advised to familiarise themselves with the local driving regulations before they embark on their journey. Many European countries also impose 'on the spot' fines for offences such as speeding. Also worth noting is that the car hire company will hold you personally liable for any fines incurred whilst you are using the vehicle, for example, parking fines

Guide to common rental car definitions:

These definitions are provided only as a guide and it essential that you refer to the terms and conditions of your rental agreement for specific terms relative to your hire.

CDW does not cover any damage caused as a result of theft, attempted theft or vandalism.

Theft Waiver (TW)
It is an insurance offered by the car rental firm limiting your liability to the excess amount in case of theft of the vehicle. This does not over negligence, if for example you can't return the ignition key, or you left it in an unsafe place, you could be liabel for the full cost of the vehicle, as would be the case with most domestic car insurance policies.

Third Party Liability Protection
Offers protection against any third pary liability such as damage to another vehicle or personal injuries to an individual not travelling in the hire car. TPLP typically does not have an excess or deductible amount to pay.

Super Collision Damage Waiver (SCDW)
Covers tyres, roof and windscreen.

Personal Insurance (PI) Insures against the cost if you accidentally kill yourself or a passenger. (Also see ALI below)
 
Personal Effects Cover (PEC)
Covers property that has been stolen from a vehicle.
 
Additional Liability Insurance (ALI)
This is an optional insurance that protects the hirer and other other authorised drivers against claims made by third parties for personal injuries, death and property damage caused by the use of or the operation of the rental car.

Germany’s largest car rental company Sixt has commenced the implementation of its plans to create a franchise network in the USA. The company will not only continue expanding Sixt’s own system of rental stations, but it also wants to purchase franchise partners in different states in order that it can increase the rate of expansion in the car hire market in the USA, and strengthen the placement of the Sixt brand. This stage is part of its international growth plan, presently the emphasis of much of the company’s activities.

Over 100 possible franchisees have already approached by Sixt in the USA. They come from practically every state in the country with a distinct geographical emphasis on economically crucial locations and important tourist destinations. It is anticipated that the first independent car hire companies with their own car fleets and with services which accomplish the requisite tiers could start as Sixt franchisees before the end of this year.

Erich Sixt, CEO of Sixt AG: “For many years now, cooperating with local franchise partners has been a cornerstone in our expansion overseas. Establishing a franchise network in the hugely important US market plays a key role in these plans. Due to our successful progress in the USA and the tremendous interest shown by potential franchisees we are able to start pursuing this strategic objective only one year after making our debut in the US market. Sixt has quickly made a name for itself in the USA.”

German flag-carrier Lufthansa has confirmed it will merge some domestic routes with subsidiary Germanwings in order to cut costs.

The move is designed to improve profits and fend off growing competition from low-cost carriers.

Under the proposals, flights within Germany and some areas of Europe, excluding those from hubs in Frankfurt and Munich, will be merged with existing low-cost airline Germanwings from January 1st, 2013.

The new service will carry over 18 million passengers in its first year, Lufthansa said.

Lufthansa, one of the largest airlines in Europe, carries just over 100 million passengers a year.

Berlin’s new Brandenburg airport has been delayed until October 2013, some 16 months after its original scheduled opening of June 2012.

As widely forecast in the German press, the opening of Berlin’s new Brandenburg airport (BER) has been further postponed. Berlin Brandenburg airport was supposed to have opened in June. But a last-minute hitch with the fire safety systems forced authorities to delay the opening until March of next year. But now they have admitted that this date cannot be met.

Brandenburg state premier Matthias Platzeck confirmed a new opening date of late October 2013 – a date which would coincide with the airlines’ winter schedules.

The latest delay is another blow for airlines, passengers and the various businesses and concessions which have set up shop in and around the new and deserted terminal.

Airlines had expanded their schedules thinking that Brandenburg would open in time for this summer.

But now they must continue to squeeze their extra flights into a busy Tegel (Berlin’s main airport which was due to shut down in June) for another year – including the whole of the summer 2013 season – while passengers must put up that airport’s overcrowded and inadequate facilities.

Shops and catering outlets stand empty in BER’s terminal and the brand new Deutsche Bahn (DB) station and tracks remain unused.

The supervisory board of Berlin Brandenburg Airport GmbH recently discussed the next steps with regard to the completion of the new airport Berlin Brandenburg Willy Brandt.

Key topics included a decision concerning noise protection for local residents as well as the time and cost management for the airport. Horst Amann, the new COO is currently evaluating the planned opening date of 17 March 2013. Contrary to media reports of recent days, there have been no new developments on this matter.

Mr Amann said: “I am currently evaluating the feasibility of the opening date with internal and external construction experts.

“We have only recently started with this work and are not yet in a position to conclude our evaluation. We expect to have clarity with regard to the opening date by the next supervisory board meeting in mid-September.”

Furthermore, Mr Amann asked all interested parties to understand that “constant updates and speculation are not helpful for the time being. We will get on with our work, and as soon as we have any results we will inform the supervisory board and the public.”

Mr Amann and his team are currently compiling status reports and implementation plans for the remainder of the work. Mr Amann added that a reliable timetable could only put forward once this work was completed.
