Recently we had the opportunity to visit Europa-Park, the largest theme park in Germany and second most popular theme resort in all of Europe.

This was the perfect opportunity for us to rekindle our childhood passion for rides. With over eleven different roller coasters alone we quickly realized we had never been to such a big theme park.

What we found cool was that the theme park was divided into different European countries. If you can’t visit all of Europe going to Europa Park is like getting little slivers of it all.

Accommodating up to 50,000 guests per day, we were fortunate we didn’t come during peak season; however, it was still crowded.

Overall, the weather was perfect, the rides were fun and it is an experience we won’t forget anytime soon.

This is a bit of a surprise. We have an eight hour wait for a flight in Frankfurt, so instead of just hanging around in the airport, which was our original plan, we decided to drop our bags off and come into the city.

That pretty much wraps up our little visit to Frankfurt. We spent maybe three or four hours just walking around and it was really nice to just see the city without much of an agenda.

I came here with quite low expectations to be perfectly honest. I had heard more or less this is just a financial hub but it ended up being quite charming here in Frankfurt and I’m definitely going to miss Germany. I’ve had a wonderful time traveling around the country.

We aren’t having much luck with the weather today. It is really rainy here in Freiburg. It is Easter weekend but we are out an exploring and we want to show you the city. Let’s go have a tour.

One of my first impressions of Freiburg is that it is such a great city to walk around in. That’s all we’ve been doing so far. It’s very picturesque. There are cobbled streets and it is also very historic.

Thankfully, the weather has shifted dramatically for the better. Earlier we had been rained out, so we had to head back into the hotel because it was cold and windy. Now we’re seeing a few patches of blue skies, so we’re going to keep exploring around Freiburg.

This is part of our Travel in Germany series. We’re making a series of videos showcasing German culture, German arts, German foods, German religion and German people.

  1. Döner Kebab is very very good value for the Price- on average it is 3,50 Euro for a big one. When I was in Bangkok I ate a schawarma, it is not the same as a Döner Kebab, but it is somewhat comparable. The Schawarma in BKK is usually 80 baht, but you Need three schawrmas to have the size of one German Döner Kebab- equals 240 baht= 6 Euro !!!!!! Now you see how affordable German Fast Food is- the portions in Germany are very big, for only 3,50 Euro !!!

  2. Berlin has one of the best public transportation system in the world, and you dont have to go through a check point like in London, New York, Shanghai, Bangkok or anywhere else in the world so you can save much time in the U-Bahn and S-Bahn- it is up to you to buy the ticket, but if you have bad luck you can get busted and have to pay a 60 Euro fine !!!!

  3. Pray at a Mosque, How could they leave that out. Along with the educational tour Muslims are giving , its called How to take over a country without firing a
    single bullet. Raping women and committing crimes while doing so. Germans will soon all be muslims , scary ……

  4. If you go to Germany, don't waste your money to go to Berlin. Went there several times and overall it is a dirty ugly city. If you really are interested in Germany go to smaller lesser known cities. And you can buy Currywurst pretty much everywhere in Germany. Also wish they would have harsher laws on those graffiti "artists" that tag every wall and object they see. It makes even the nicest area look trashy.

  5. a) Don't call it "Things to do in Germany" if you talk about Berlin for 70% of the video. It's like making "things to do in USA" and talk 10/15 minutes about NY.

    10:08 Schnitzel is a classic austrian (vienniese) dish and originally comes from Milan. The germans for some reason use to dump sauce on it, which is seen as a culinaric sacrilege in Austria.
    15:44 I think after that comment there are a few Germans who would gladly strangle you. Germany has been divided in several parts over many centuries – therefore these parts have developed in different ways, adopted other traditions etc. So if you really want to enjoy the beauty of Germany you have to understand the variety of cultures there and that people are very proud of them. You are not visiting one person, but rather a very big patchwerk family.

    Ok, so it's a video with a deatailed guide over most of Berlins attractions (there are few more) and some random pictures of Frankfurt and Freyburg…..Nice presentation and work on the video itself – but there might be some TINY bits of Germany worth giving a try.

  6. there is also a ritter sport factory in berlin. you can create your own chocolate there (filled with strawberries, winegums, cornflakes etc.) its called "bunte schokowelt" and is located in the franz straße 24 in berlin 😉

  7. Was in Germany were the most disgusting memories I think everyone knows that fierce hatred with which the Germans met with Russian hatred of them absorb with their mother's milk so that during his stay in Germany indecom- honored to be humiliated Russian pig and subhuman insulted openly netayas of Nazism in Germany in the prime think Hitler proud

  8. I usually eat good old German wholemeal bread instead of bread rolls. Only Saturday or Sunday morning I eat bread rolls. No bread in the world can overcome German breads!

    The döner kebab was invented by a Turk in Berlin. I would say it's a german-turkish food.
