Here comes another post from our newest YG guest blogger, Kristi Fuoco.
Great music, great beer, soccer mania and ridiculously old buildings. It doesn’t get much more European than that. My first venture outside of Hamburg made for a true German weekend away. The quaint city of Bremen is just one lovely hour train ride away via Hamburg’s Haupbahnhof (main train station.) Here’s my tip – travel in a group if you can and you will cut your train travel costs down significantly. Make friends with scary looking people in the train station if you must and your single fare will go from around €21 down to €10 if you can travel with a group of three or more. Or, you can opt in for a Probe BahnCard through the Deutsche Bahn (German train) system and buy a discount card for 25% or 50% off train travel around Germany.
