Dear readers, it has been several years since I have been to Germany.
First, young children limited my ability to travel, and then, of
course, COVID. I've been able to keep this site somewhat updated from
afar, but I really need to get back on the ground again to see for
myself the current state of transportation in Germany, especially given
the stories I'm hearing about the DB and other infrastructure
challenges. To that end, I'm planning to make a trip this summer. If
you'd like to make
a little donation to help underwrite my journey, I would be most
grateful! You can do so by clicking the button below, and I will
recognize all contributors on this site (unless you tell me otherwise,
of course.) Thanks and travel safe!
"It's not the
destination, but the journey."
Germans are extremely adept at getting people (and things) efficiently
from Point A to Point B and it shows. Its world-class
transportation system is one of the most admirable things about the
country. The road, rail, and air systems are all extensive
and well-maintained and public transport in cities is also
outstanding. This site contains all the information you will
need to take advantage of Germany's transportation networks. The information is divided into two major sections: National
Transport and Local Transport, with each
section subdivided into the various modes of transport. If
you're planning a trip to Germany, this is a great place to get the
practical information you need. If you are a road, railroad,
air transport, or urban transit enthusiast, then this will be a great
reference. Whatever your purpose, I think that you will find
this to be the most complete site on this subject on the Web.
