I'm going to Germany Answered

Hi! I'm going to Germany in a couple of days, and I was wondering if anyone here knows of good places to go. We'll mostly be in west germany. Also is there any cool electronic shops there?

Well, I have always used it for Quantum Field Theory, but it could mean Quantum Fourier Transform or even Quest For Tech, Quit Freaking Talking, Quite Freaking True or the web slang of Quoted for Truth. :-)

The real one runs (most of the time) too....but there are many exceptions: Ostrich, Emu, the Do-do (before it went extinct), penguins (both cold and warm weather types), and the cassowary (there are 3 species of cassowary). Meep Meep !

"German money" you mean Euros right, the same as everywhere else in Europe.

sorry... got mixed up... I have German pfennigs though. I'm pretty sure it was german munny before they started making Euros. Just like the Franc, I have a franc.

I think that is like their cents/small coins. Their version of the dollar was (I think) Deutsche Marks.

I learned that the North beaches are amazing. Everything is a train ride away. You must visit the Black Forest and try their Scwarzwaldekirchtorte. It is delicious.

Go to Heidelberg Castle, it is really cool. My cousin twice removed (grandmothers cousin) lives in Mannheim so we went there but it is just a normal town. If you get the chance, see some of the castles on the Rhine, they are amazing. There is a castle where you can go underground and explore. I think it was castle Rheinfels. Have a great time!!!!

Where in Germany are you going? A "Couple of days" doesn't give you time to go wandering all over - Germany is smaller than the US, but it's still pretty big... Heidelberg university, Munich beer houses, and Rhine "cruises" stand out as memorable pieces from my three visits, though I suppose there's a pretty strong dependence on whether you prefer "urban" or "rural" style entertainment. Eat Schnitzel. Yum.
