DAY 1 & 2

We departed Las Vegas for Munich early morning Thursday September 17, 2015 on American/US Airways. We connected in Philadelphia, and arrived in Munich around 0930 the following morning Friday September 18, 2015.

The flight from the West Coast is extremely long, as we lost an entire day traveling. It was an uncomfortable flight in coach, and if I had to do it again I would pay the extra money to fly business class or at least premium economy.

As soon as we cleared immigration in Munich, the SiXT driver was waiting for us at the baggage claim. He drove us to our hotel in a new 7 series. On my last ED I used Rolf, but chose to use the free SiXT service BMW provides this time. Both were equally as good. The SiXT driver was very informative about the area, and even recommended some restaurants near our hotel and told us about many of the traffic rules.

We stayed at the Hotel Blauer Bock, which is right next to the Viktualienmarkt. The hotel was in a great location, and was clean and nice. They also had a good free breakfast spread each morning.

We took a 2 hour nap, and met Racerstf and his mother at our hotel to do a walking tour of Munich. We went to the Viktualienmarkt, where we grabbed some "bio" bratwurst at Kleiner Ochs'nbrater. When you see "bio" on German food it means organic. This was the best brat we had on our whole trip! We then climbed the 306 stairs to the top of Peterskirche to burn off lunch. We then checked out the shops in the Pedestrian Zone and Maximilianstrase,before heading to Marienplatz and watching the Glockenspiel at 1700. We walked through the Hafbrauhaus to have a beer, but it was jammed packed full of pre-Oktberfest revelers and therefore could not get an open table. We then walked through the Hofgarten to the Englischer Garten where we checked out the surfers in the Eisbach. Finally, we got to sit down and enjoy dinner at the Augustiner Klosterwirt. It was a great traditional German food and beer. We planed to go out to the bars and clubs the rest of the evening, but the jet-lag finally caught up to us, and we decided to stay in and catch up on sleep the rest of the night.

I'm very interested in your review of the Garmisch-Partenkirchen area. My wife and I are traveling to Munich in December for our ED and that is the only real driving we have planned. We plan to drive there early in the morning and stay overnight at Hotel Edelweiss.

We were in Garmisch-Partenkirchen last month. Great hiking and very dramatic views. The town was crowded and not particularly appealing to us, (Berchtesgaden was much nicer). Our favorite meal was in Garmisch-Partenkirchen at Le Pino, or it might have been La Pino, a new place on Enzianstrasse, just west of the river. It is too new for reviews but we loved it. If we went back we would stay in Grainau.

Day 3

On Saturday September 19, 2015, we woke up early and took the U3 from Marienplatz to the BMW Welt. It was an easy and short ride using the clean and reliable public transportation we found all over Europe. At 0800 we met up with Racerstf and his mother again, and we all checked in for our deliveries. We walked around the Welt and enjoyed the great breakfast in the Premium Lounge.

Delivery time was finally here! Both Racerstf and my deliveries were at the same time right next to each other. We spent about 30 minutes talking with my delivery specialist Sven, who happened to be my delivery specialist 3 years ago on my first ED. I don't know if BMW plans that or not. It was just as amazing as my first experience at the Welt 3 years ago.

Day 3 (continued)

We did the victory lap, and parked the cars at the Welt so we could take the U3 to Sendlinger Tor where we walked to Kreuzstrasse to watch the Oktoberfest parade. The parade was magnificent. The line of horses, carriages, beer carts, and marchers in traditional Bavarian costumes should not be missed if you are in Munich for Oktoberfest.






















After the parade, we ate lunch at Zum Spokmeier, where we had more traditional German cuisine. We walked back to our hotels to grab a nap before Oktoberfest.



At 1900, we again met Racerstf and his mother at Marienplatz. We took the U3 to Goetheplatz where we walked to the Oktoberfest grounds. Oktoberfest was crazy. Coming from someone that works on the Las Vegas strip, that is saying something. We did not have tickets to get into a tent, so we walked around the grounds. Some locals told us we might be able to get in a tent around 1900. Unfortunately, while we were stopped at a food stand eating a Bratwurst, it started to pour down rain. Everyone except a few drunks ran for cover. Every tent that wasn't full before was certainly full now. We were didn't have any luck, as all the tents were turning everyone away. We walked around the grounds, which were enormous until we decided to call it a night and head back to the hotels.

Day 4

On Sunday September 20, 2015, we took the U3 to the Welt again to retrieve the cars from the parking garage.






We drove to the town of Eibsee in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. We planned to ride the Zugspitze cable car to the top, but it was extremely overcast. The 52 Euro charge for the ride up and back wasn't worth it without being able to see anything.




We then left for Hohenschwangau. Our first stop there was the "Official" castle photograph spot. We then parked at the ticket center, and took the horse carriage up to Neuschwanstein. We walked back down, as the downhill walk was not difficult and was only about 15 minutes to the parking lots.
















This is where we said goodbye to Racersfx and his mother, and continued on our 2.5 hour journey to Lindau. in the Bodensee. We had a difficult time finding the hotel, as Lindau is a small island with many streets being for pedestrians only. Our NAV kept telling us to drive on the pedestrian zone roads. We ended up calling the hotel, and spoke to the owner Markeeta who was so helpful. She yold us to just drive down the pedestrian zone to her hotel. She said it would be fine to unload there before we went to the public parking are a few minutes away. She even offered to pay for any ticket we may have gotten parking in the pedestrian zone. The hotel was very nice. Markeeta delivered the friendliest and best service we received during our whole trip.

After we unloaded our car, we drove to the public parking lot for the island near the train station. Markeeta gave us a ticket for the parking lot so we did not have to pay. It was a huge lot, with plenty of room to park the new car. We walked around and decided to eat at a restaurant by the main pier in Lindau. We decided on the restaurant at the Hotel Reutemann. We had a good meal and had an even better view of the lake from our outdoor table.

Day 5

On Monday September 21, 2015, we woke up and had a great free breakfast made by Markeeta at the Hotel Noris. We went to the pier and took a ferry to the town of Bregenz, Austria. We rode the Pfänderbahn to the top of the mountain. Not only were there amazing views from the top, but there was also a nice animal preserve you could walk through for free. We spent about an hour on the top of the mountain and rode the Pfänderbahn back down the mountain. We had lunch at a small Italian café near the pier.












We took the ferry back to Lindau. We walked around to all of the shops on the island than retrieved our car to depart for Rothenburg ob der Tauber.















We drove approximately 2.5 hours to Rothenburg ob der Tauber. Once again, we had difficulty driving to the hotel, the Goldener Hirsch. Once we were in the gates of Rothenburg, we were stopped by construction and could not get to our hotel. I walked to the hotel around the construction, and the manager gave me directions to get around the construction to their parking lot. We paid 6 Euros a day to park in the hotel's private lot. The Goldener Hirsch was nice, and had a good breakfast, free wifi, and the largest room we had on the entire trip.

After we settled in, we headed to the market square for the night watchman's tour at 2000. This tour was highly recommended by others on this forum. Let me tell you that it did not disappoint. The watchman was very entertaining and informative. We enjoyed the tour a lot. After the tour, we ate dinner at Rattstube Restaurant in the Market Square then called it a night early.

Day 6

The next day Tuesday September 22, 2015, we walked the city wall and town in the early morning.
















We then drove the Burgenstrasse to the Nuremberg train station where we parked the car. We took the #9 tram from in front of the station 15 minutes to the Doku-Zentrum stop. We toured the Nazi Documantation Center and did the hour walk around the Rally Grounds.

Day 6 continued

We then took the #9 tram back to the Nuremberg train station. From there we walked the Old Town to the Imperial Castle and back.










We drove back to our hotel in Rothenburg. We had diner reservations at Zur Holl. This was an amazing little restaurant in a building from the 900s. The food was excellent, and the small historical building made the atmosphere not to be beat. We would recommend Zur Holl to anyone that spends the night in Rothenburg.

What an amazing town. Everyone needs to add Rothenburg to their ED itinerary.

Day 7

On Wednesday September 23, 2015, we walked the town of Rothenburg and toured the medieval Crime & Punishment Museum. The museum was very interesting and worth taking a look at.











We then drove the Burgenstrasse approximately 3.5 hours to Heidelberg where we checked in at the City Partner Hotel Hollander Hof. The Hollander Hof was a very nice hotel, with a great view of the Neckar River and free breakfast and wifi.




After checking in, we walked to dinner at Zur Herrenmuehle. This was the #2 restaurant in Heidelberg on Trip Advisor. The food was pretty good, but the service was not great. Certainly did not deserve a #2 ranking. There was no menu in English as well.

Day 8

When we woke up on Thursday September 24, 2015, we walked to the Heidelberg Castle. We paid the 4 Euro fee to enter the castle. There were some great views of the city from inside the castle. We also go to see the largest barrel of wine in the world in the castle. It holds 58,100 gallons of wine and was built in 1751. After touring the castle, we walked the Hauptstraße, which is the main shopping street in the Old Town.














After shopping, we drove the 2.5 hours to Cologne. This drive actually took about 4.5 hours due to an unknown problem on the A67. We were stopped for two hours. Everyone was hanging out outside of their cars and talking. It was like a block party on the Autobahn. When traffic started moving, there were no signs of what caused the stoppage.





We arrived at the Astor und Aparthotel. They had their own private parking, but you had to enter from a narrow garage door on the narrow street. It was a challenge getting an angle to get in the lot with cars parked on the road. The hotel was pretty decent and had great service, a free breakfast, and free wifi.



After getting settled in, we took the U to the Pastabar Caruso on Salierring. We had reservations for 1930, but since we were delayed on the A67, the lady working the front desk at our hotel was nice enough to have the reservation moved back 2 hours. This restaurant was a very small authentic Italian bistro. The food was amazing, the service was great, and the atmosphere was good too. This was the #5 restaurant in Cologne on Trip Advisor, and I would agree with that ranking.



After dinner, we went out to the bars. We had a real good time, as Cologne was more of a late night party city than any of the cities we have visited so far on this trip.

Day 9

The next morning on Friday September 25, 2015, we walked the Old Town to the Koln Cathedral. The Cathedral or Dom, is an impressive sight. We went inside during a service, which was beautiful. We chose not to climb the 509 steps for the view from the top of the Cathedral. Cologne had a lot of shopping, as it was more of a big city atmosphere so we spent a couple hours visiting the upscale shops.













We then drove the approximately 3 hours, to Amsterdam. This drive was an adventure. We reached Amsterdam during Friday afternoon rush hour. There were thousands of cars and bicycles everywhere. It was very difficult to move with all of the bicycle traffic. Similar to America, the bicyclists there think they are the only person on the road. They have no qualms about riding in front of you or along side of your car so close the rub against it. The first thing that went wrong though was the route to our hotel was closed due to construction. The detour routed us around a different canal ring than our hotel was. We were at a red light, and noticed a police officer on a motorcycle was looking at us. He was facing the opposite direction. He drove over a curb on to some railroad tracks and somehow got ahead of us. When we got to the next red light he was in front of us and approached our car on foot. He asked us to follow him. He got on his bike, turned off the main road to a very narrow road, where we followed him about a half-mile to a small parking spot he found. Cars barely had enough room to get around us in the spot.

The officer asked for the car's documents, and explained we are not allowed to drive on German export plates unless we are heading out of Germany to our home destination. I explained the European Delivery process, and showed him Amsterdam was my drop off location. He let us go, but said it is illegal to drive the car around the city recreationally with those plates. We just nodded and said we wouldn't. Once we got back on to a main road, we saw a parking garage. We had no idea how far away our hotel was, but it was so crazy to drive there with the narrow streets and bicycles and pedestrians everywhere we didn't care. We didn't plan on driving anywhere in Amsterdam, but wanted to unload our luggage at our hotel before finding a parking garage. Once we parked in the garage, we figured out our hotel was still far away. We called for an Uber, and they came within a few minutes. We used Uber Black 3 times in Amsterdam. It worked great, and was reasonably priced. The parking rate was 50 Euros a day at the garage.

We checked in to the Hotel The Exchange, which was in a great location on Damrak between Dam Square and the Amsterdam Central Station. When we booked this hotel moths ago, there were not many rooms available in the center city area. This was the second nicest hotel we could find with availability several months before our trip. The Waldorf Astoria had rooms at $900+ a night. The Exchange cost us about $500 a night as the 4 night stay was $1945. This hotel had a Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor and was very pricy so we figured it would be a very nice hotel. We definitely tried to stay at 4 or 5 star hotels when we could throughout our trip. Upon check in, the front desk receptionist said we had to pay for the stay up front. Every other hotel we stayed at on the trip, we paid at check out. All of our hotels were booked on Expedia.com or Booking.com. We wanted to pay cash and they would not let us. We had to use a credit card. I did not want to use the credit card, as there would be a 3% transaction fee charged by my bank. When I told them that I had cash, and did not want to use my card to avoid my bank's fees, they still said they would only take credit card. We paid using the card, and checked in to our room. This hotel was interesting to say the least. The door off the street took you to their registration booth, which was their entire ground floor. It was the size of a closet. There was no lobby. No breakfast room. Nothing like our other hotels had. We had to walk up a steep set of uncarpeted wooden steps to get to the first floor where the rooms started. Our room was on the 3rd floor, which there was a small elevator we took to get there. We got to our room, which was another surprise. The room had a bed, without a headboard. The only furniture in the room was a small wood desk, and two metal wire end "tables". There was no closet, no storage, no dresser or anything. There wasn't even a pen and paper. There were some cloth squares like something you would buy at IKEA for a college dorm hanging from the one wall. We guessed that was storage, but it wouldn't even hold the weight of socks. The bathroom consisted of a showerhead, a small pedestal sink and a toilet all on the same tile floor. When you took a shower, the entire bathroom floor flooded. We had to make a barrier out of towels to keep the water contained. There was no vanity or storage in the bathroom to hold our toiletry bags. There was no breakfast offered at the hotel, and there was only a vending machine available on the first floor. The hotel did have the best wifi service we had during our entire trip, which was very important, as the wifi up to this point was very poor at best where we stayed. We don't spend that much time in the hotel room, but for what we paid, we expected better. We do enjoy having nice rooms with a place to eat breakfast.

So far, our experience in Amsterdam was not that great. It soon changed when we went to dinner. We found an amazing place in one of the small alleys behind our hotel. It was called Il Pacioccone. We had amazing food this entire trip, but nothing beat this place. Not only did it have the best atmosphere by far, the staff was the most friendly, and the food was the best we had all trip! It was so good; we ate there 3 times during our 5 days in Amsterdam.

This is not true, as long as you have the Green Sticker on your front windshield you are good to drive in the all major European cities.

Regarding CC, sounds like you need to get yourself a new CC, On our trip I was able to get roughly 25K points to be used on our next trip.

Yea I know he was not correct. I was a cop for 20 years, so I know nothing good would have come out of arguing especially in a foreign country. We still drove everywhere we had planned on driving anyway, so I wasn't that concerned. It was a little unsettling getting stopped though. Especially with the craziness of Amsterdam during a Friday rush hour.
