Room and Tent Reservations

I have secured the following room reservations at our favorite family run hotel, the Hotel Alfa:

3 Double Rooms (Vozel, Finlay, Linza-Pending Decision?)
2 Single Rooms (Rang, Extra just in case)

These are for arrival on 27 September and departure on 1 October. I will need to confirm, make any changes, and provide payment the first week of March.

In addition, we have a full table reservation for Saturday, 29 September, from 13:00 - 17:15 at the Hacker tent. We have been there before and a good time should be had by all.

NOTE: barbus and Schlumberger Lady are staying at a different hotel.

Can I get a big Prost ?

Our First Day Trip Decided

Thanks to barbus, with an assist to Barley Man, it looks like we have a new day trip identified for this year. This is actually a two part visit, starting at Kloster Benediktbeuern,and then heading to the village of Kochel. This is only about an hour train ride from Munich, so we have plenty of flexibility.

Check out the genesis of this trip in this discussion.

Day Trip Discussion...

Should we think about one of the following repeat visits, or is there something new that we haven't done? Remember the guidelines, the journey should not be any longer than 2.5 hours each way. We want to spend a good amount of time there, but also not be traveling all day.

  1. Rothenburg ob der Tauber
  2. Bamberg
  3. Kloster Weltenburg

Let's hear thoughts or alternatives. Of course Kloster Andechs is on the agenda.

Time to start following Airfare trends

They are still a bit high, but should be falling soon.

Keep your eyes open and your apps watching for deals and pounce when you are happy with a price.
