Day 1 Frankfurt
Start your Central Europe Prague, Berlin Coach & Rail Tour with a train ride from Frankfurt International Airport (FRA) to Frankfurt Central Station. It only takes 11 minutes from the Airport local train station (located below baggage claim in arrival Hall 1) to Frankfurt Central Station. The fare is covered by the “Frankfurt Card” which is already included in the price of the Central Europe Coach vacation package. Your hotel is located in short walking distance of Frankfurt Central Station. Frankfurt is a very modern metropolis which nevertheless offers many historic sites such as the Romerberg (hill of the Romans) with its beautifully restored timber-framed houses, of course the Goethe Haus where the world famous poet once lived, the Paulskirche, symbol for democracy and freedom in Germany, “Alt-Sachsenhausen“, where in Schellgasse number 6 you will find Frankfurt’s oldest timber-framed house which was built around 1291, to name only a few of Frankfurt’s historic landmarks.
The Frankfurt museum riverbank is one of the most important locations for museums in Germany and Europe. The exhibition buildings are lined up on both sides of the Main riverbank, several famous museums are to be found in the city centre. Visit the “Stadel“, the German Museum of Architecture as well as the Museum of Applied Art or the “Schirn Kunsthalle” to name only a very few. Don’t miss out on Frankfurt’s “Zeil“, a huge pedestrian zone where shopping is the name of the game.

Our goal was to travel Germany by ourselves, as we like to do our own thing, but how to go about this with no local knowledge? Luckily I came across To-Europe.com, and it seemed to fit what we wanted perfectly. Accommodation close to train stations, and plenty of information about what to go and see. We wanted to add some specific places not on the itinerary, and To-Europe.com did this with ease. I found communicating via email easy, and always received prompt replies. The presentation of information was easy to read, and travel and accommodation bookings were flawless. The standard of accommodation was good, as was the buffet breakfast each morning. We are a family of 5, so had two rooms at each hotel we stayed at, and this was easy to manage. We had 5 suitcases, and proximity to train stations was always in walking distance, making life easy. It was such an adventure for our family, and I would definitely use To-Europe.com again.
Thanks to the To-Europe Team.
Hotels selected were ideal in location and good standard with very good breakfast buffets.
Travel information was very helpful and the free walking tours we did at Berlin and Prague were well worth the tip we gave the guides. 2nd Class seating on the German trains good .When using the Inter-city Bus we found the DB Express bus Nuremburg to Prague was of 1st class Standard. But in comparison the Euro-Lines Bus Prague to Berlin was very budget class.
We did enjoy our customised travel plan but would advise other customers to have 3 days at the Nuremberg hotel given 1 day is used on trip to Rothenberg and we needed extra time in Nuremburg. We would use "To- Europe" agents again.
