Ampere, November 12th, 2013
« on: August 08, 2013, 09:35:30 PM »

So a few months ago, I decided I would start saving up money to attend the November 12th show in Munich, Germany.
Why you ask? Well to make a long story short, the show is on my birthday and this will be my first ever trip to Europe, not sure what I'm gonna be doing apart from attending the show, seeing is how I'm gonna be there for 4 days.
Anyone who happens to also be attending said show have any ideas of what to do, or possibly wanna hang out for a bit?

One of the world's best museums:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deutsches_Museum

The medieval clock downtown.

There is a cultural district
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kunstareal
All four of the art museums (picture gallies) are decent.
Especially
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neue_Pinakothek

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Munich

https://en.wikivoyage.org/wiki/Munich

Budget permitting,  Vienna, Innsbruck.  & Salzburg
are all day trips by train.

You might want to price the inter-city rail before you go,
and check the prices.

a Eurrail (sp?) pass is the cheapest way to travel by rail,
but I doubt they come as short as 2-3-4 days.

Some of the pre-WWII Nazi sites are near Munich,
if you're a history buff.

I still don't know if i will be able to afford this, but I'm seriously considering flying there, since this will probably be one of the last GTO gigs, at least for a while, I'm sure it's gonna be quite special. If I'm there early I'd love hang out or do something around town, and you really shouldn't be alone on your birthday O0

Len, you are awesome..Thank you again!
And Niko, making the trip would be SO worth it...I work a minimum wage job, so it's been really hard to save up the money for the trip, but I believe in my hardest of hearts that the show will be more than worth it..And yes, it may be slightly depressing to be alone on my birthday..But something tells me I will have an amazing time at Zeltrasse 4 with all those sweaty people rocking the fuck out...My first GTO show(I have seen DD, as well as "An Evening with"), so needless to say, I'm super fucking excited!!!!!

go to berlin :) not münchen .. it's much cheaper!! and when you need a ride, hitchhiking works great from big towns (i speak from experience) :) or try http://www.mitfahrgelegenheit.de - it's a carpooling program.. here you can get rides to anywhere in Europe, for much cheaper than the stupid deutsche bahn.

good luck!

thanx for the tip! I've been to berlin before, that's why I wanted to try a different city. I ended up finding the best deal for Cologne, and that's where I am going. I wanted to combine two gigs, and the next day eurostar to Brussels is very cheap and convenient.
