Spa Resorts

The lack of a warm sea in Germany is compensated by many thermal springs, where you can swim in winter and summer. Also in the country there are springs with mineral water, which is drunk for medicinal purposes. The names of balneological resorts usually begin with the word “Bad”, which means “bathing”.

The resort of Baden-Baden has long been loved by the Russian public. In the local thermal waters, bones were heated by members of the royal family and the luminaries of Russian literature: Chekhov, Zhukovsky, Gogol and others.

Tourists note

Public transport. It is considered one of the most harmoniously functioning on the whole continent. In addition to buses and trams, you can use the city electric trains (S-bahn) and the underground (U-bahn), which operate from 4 in the morning. Unified tariff systems are applied for all types of public transport. You can save various travel and tourist tickets. If you plan to use mainly intra-city transport, then it is more profitable to buy a travel card for the whole month. One-time tickets are valid for two hours, then they become useless pieces of paper. As for the condition of the roads, it is beyond praise in the territory of the former West Germany. Things are not so good on the old ex-GDR tracks, so drivers should be careful.

Communication and the Internet. Mobile communication covers almost the entire territory of the country, with the exception of remote areas between small village communes. Surprisingly, it is a fact: in Germany there are practically no pay phones, and this is because most citizens prefer to use cell phones. Machine guns were preserved mainly at railway stations. In order not to be left without communication, tourists upon arrival buy a SIM card of a local operator, it can be Vodafone, T-Mobile or E-Plus. Continue reading
