I was in dusseldorf and I'm planning to go to amsterdam.... what else is there to do in this part of the world?
And all these blond girls running around... what to do...

I wish I could stay for much much longer, but everything is expensive round here (exept beer).

I will be at Dusseldorf airport tomorrow evening to pick up my parents, we can drink a beer if you can be there as well. My parents arrive at 18:45h but I could be there at around 16:30h, we would have 2 hours and 15 minutes time which is enough for a bit spotting, chatting and drinking a beer.

Well I was counting on going to amsterdam tomorrow afternoon.
But I should visit berlin too, no?
Ultimately at the end of my trip I should join my brother in the south-east of france... I think that will be in around 1 week.

YES! Berlin is an absolutely fantastic city, not to be missed when in that part of the continent. If you enjoyed Cologne and Duesseldorf, you'll LOVE Berlin.

If you visit Berlin, which I would encourage you to do, try DBA from CGN. They fly CGN-THF, so you get that airport before it is closed...

If you have to keep more than an eye on the budget, you can try some special fares for rail travel: http://www.bahn.de/-S:PtVOR9:eamEHdN...travelservice/price_overview.shtml

Definitely! I booked THF-CPH tonight (well, yesterday anyway) just for the hell of it. And because I'll be flying one day after my birthday.  Wink

Quoting Sabena332 (Reply 2):

I'm not sure, but if I take a train to amsterdam tomorrow, I gues I can pass by dusseldorf, can I tell you tomorrow, during the day?

Why didn't you book the flight for the day of your birthday? That is maximising the jumpseat or Business Class upgrade chances for at least 70%.

Too bad, because otherwise I would have recommended you to go to Hamburg, do some sightseeing by foot (Hamburg is a great place to walk around), go shopping at the Mönckebergstraße, then hit the Kiez (more specifically the famous street named "Reeperbahn" or as we call it "Die Geile Meile") and get absolutely wasted.  Wink

Quoting Rolfen (Reply 4):

Absolutely. There's also lots to see in Berlin. You could even visit the Reichstag and watch their sessions from the glass dome, walk through the Brandenburg Gate, hit the Kudamm (the famous Kurfürstendamm) and even get some parts from the old Berlin Wall at the souvenir shops (if they still sell it). I believe there are also parts of the wall preserved, along with some of the surveillance towers, as sort of historical monuments, which are worth seeing.

I've been to Berlin three times, but never got around to seeing everything, because we were there just a day each time. I believe the first time was in 1990, when the GDR still existed, but AFAIK, we didn't take the old Transit Route from Hamburg over the A24 that time, since the borders were fully open back then, while the last time, things definitely changed a lot.

a) I'll be meeting a friend in Berlin, and I'd like to spend some time with her.
b) My parents are paying for the hotel. Big grin
c) Flights on the previous day were significantly more expensive.

Anyway, THF alone should be exciting enough for one flight.  bouncy

So much is for sure! Unfortunately I never flew into/out of THF, hope to manage to get a flight there soon.

When I was in Köln, we drove over to Aachen on the border and went to a place called Dreiländereck, where Belgium, the Netherlands, and Germany intersect. It was kind of cool.

There are lots of cool places to visit in Berlin as well. I'm sure some sort of guide book would come in handy for finding all the places that are worth seeing. Berlin was kind of mysterious in that when I first got there, I thought Berlin was ugly and hated it, but then after the week went by, I started liking it more and more. It's really a unique and cool city.

A cheaper alternative for a prop-flight out of/into THF would be a DC-3/C47 of http://www.air-service-berlin.de/ for 35 minutes at 99 EUR.

Thanks  Smile
I was visiting the cathedral that afternoon, then I lost my wallet... and spend 2 hours looking for it, and finally found it  hyper  at the restaurant where I sat for lunch... they had kept it for me with everything inside... including about 300 euros and a credit card... which in the meantime I had blocked.
I then tried to use the credit card, thinking it was not blocked yet... and the machine swallowed it.
Yeah I did lots of stupid things that day.

AFAIK nobody serves AMS - THF as nonstop, the flight mentioned earlier on DBA leaves from CGN.
Flights from AMS go into TXL.
SN Brussels serves BRU - THF.
