    OK. So we are landing in Hamburg on 29.7.13 and then going up to Wacken on the Wednesday morning and staggering out on Sunday with the rest. So as someone who has never been to Germany, or Europe for that matter, would I be better suited you think going to Munich or Berlin for the next 3 days? I'd like to see the Berlin wall and that kind of stuff, but I'd also like to see traditional Bavarian type stuff too and the beer halls and all that. Plus a castle or something like that while I'm over. Any tips?

    It depends on what you like. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Munich, it's gorgeous. I found the people super friendly and had no problems with anyone speaking English. We're big war history buffs so Munich gave us the chance to tour around Dachau concentration camp, the beer hall where Hitler had the 'beerhall Putsch", visit Hohenschwangau /Neuschwanstein Castles and also tour the Eagle's Nest. The city itself is gorgeous and I really wish we would have had more time there.

    Berlin was almost completely opposite. The city has a very 'industrial' feel to it. I didn't find it as nice or welcoming. We didn't necessarily have any 'bad' experiences it just felt very different. While in Berlin we checked out the Reichstagg, Brandenburg gate, Berlin wall, Checkpoint Charlie and a few of the other Museums. The only green type space was the Tiergarten in the middle of the city (which was beautiful). There were a lot of beggars too - have to watch out for those!

    We did a lot more things, those were just the highlights. Personally I would go back to Munich in a heartbeat but Berlin had more 'history'.

    I know the feeling. It'll be my first time in Europe. After the festival, I'm taking a train to Cologne and Amsterdam before heading home. Hope to see London next year after Wacken.

    I've got a 2 hour layover in London on the way back but not enough time to do anything or deal with security again.

    Same with us, but in Paris. My 2010 layover was in London, i dont remember the airport being too much of a hassel.

    @Raylouie: what part of CO are you in? Perhaps you know Havok? :cool:
