The golden tweet of Germany Here's the Glockenspiel on Munich. Set at the foot of the Bavarian Alps. The city is a mix of rustic tradition, modern life and at times, a somber history. And while one should never forget history, lest be condemned to repeat, we'll focus on what makes Munich a destination for beer lovers, believers in fairy tales and Christmas gift shoppers. And for those wishing to travel to Munich and beyond, be sure to get a German Rail Pass ! First, the spiel on the Rathaus-Glockenspiel. Located in the 800+ year-old Marienplatz, or central square in the city center. This huge mechanical clock has 43 bells and 32 life-sized figurines that come to life in a 260-foot tower, reenacting two scenes from Munich's history. The whole show lasts about 15 minutes, culminating in the appearance of a small golden bird chirping three times. And the crowd goes wild. Show up at 11am to see this “tweet” show. Munich is best known the world over for its incredibly rambunctious Oktoberfest. For 16 days, the city becomes a giant keg party. For years, the fest has followed a traditional calendar of events. On the first Saturday, the tapping of the first beer barrel by the Munich Mayor. On the last Sunday, fireworks commence in the Theresienwiese, the fest's main field. In the days between, find millions of revelers clinking beer steins together, chugging and chanting “O'zapft is !” Learn more about Munich
Where smart people learn to love Alsace Capital of Alsace, home of the European Parliament and the Council of Europe, and less than 2.5 hours from Paris by TGV, Strasbourg beckons with a blend of history and modernity. The Grande Île, Strasbourg's historic city center, is a UNESCO world heritage site. This was the first time such an honor was placed on an entire city center. There are incredible sights to see in just this one area : The Palais Rohan, 500-hundred year old churches including the Cathédral de Nôtre Dame (the tallest medieval building in Europe) and its famous astronomical clock. If you're lucky to be here around the holidays, the Strasbourg Christmas market surrounding the church has been an annual event since 1570. The neighborhood known as Petit France sits along the banks of The Grand Île. Famous for its medieval, black and white timber-framed buildings, the renowned Maison Kammerzell is the city's best example on Place de la Cathédrale in an area formerly belonging to the Holy Roman Empire.

"Having electric sockets is good, but the lack of Wi-Fi was disappointing. Seats were okay. But it is a bit over priced "

"the delay was terrible, even if I am pretty sure that RE knows about the duration of the delay, they prolonged it every ten minutes until it was 1,5 hour. If we were been told right at the beginning, we could go for a supper or do something else than stand and staring at the delay board :-) Anyway the train was nice, clean and comfort ... and people were friendly so finaly it was not so bad trip... If The RE decreases the price of tickets i would use trains instead of cars, buses and maybe even instead of planes sometimes.. "
