    Such a helpful post for planning a trip to Germany without breaking the bank! I’ve looked at cheap flights before and there’s often a special offer on for one or other city. I also love taking the train in Europe, especially intercity, so thanks for the notes on rail discounts. Accommodation wise is one area that we tend to spend a little more on, but the ideas for budget food and drink are super useful.

    This is the reason, we should all read travel blogs before going anywhere! You just gave me a brilliant idea of visiting the Baltic coast of Germany, which would never cross my mind otherwise. Thanks a lot. Great read!

    Got no words for this. Just amazing.

      Of course it is, Wesely! Despite still getting many international visitors, I can’t help but feel that Germany is one of the most underrated countries in western Europe especially compared to countries like France and Spain.

    This is an amazing and comprehensive post! I always knew that Germany was gorgeous but had no idea how to begin navigating around. The walking tours and day trips are a must! Love taking those when I’m in a new city.

    Germany sure has changed quite a bit since I lived there towards the end of the last century. I remember the Schönes-Wochenende being DM20 and with four friends travelling together, it would come down to DM5 per person. Not a bad deal. Strangely enough, I haven’t been back there for almost two decades now, but need to change that soon. Thanks for all the tips on saving money.

    Agree completely that Germany is a great place to visit on a budget. Compared to most of its neighbours which have a more expensive train travel options. The reach of the train to small areas are on point too. Thanks for the notes on budget.

    I’ll be in Germany this summer (Warnemunde and Berlin), so this is just perfect! Thank you for the tip about specifying tap water at restaurants. I drink A LOT of water, so I’ll be practicing saying “Leitungswasser” up until I get there 🙂 The business lunch deals are something I wouldn’t have known about, so I’ll have to seek them out. Also, I have to mention that your photos are absolutely stunning.

    Excellent information here for the budget traveller. I always had thought that Germany was expensive but you have shown that it does not have to be. I will definitely look out for the street food vendors when I travel next. Thanks for the information on the trains as well, very in-depth. Thanks for sharing.

    A great article on keeping an eye on the pocket while exploring the huge country of Germany. Taking the rail passes always help for intercities. I also love to take the travel cards that helps save bucks and includes public transport and cruise too. I did the same last time I was in Berlin. And I value the tip of visiting the country during low season. It does saves money in many cases.

    I love this round up on how to travel through Germany on a budget. It’s so fantastic to learn that Germanny has a fantastic transportation network with a great affordable 24-hour pass option, which you can even share with your friends!!! A farm stay would totally be quite an awesome experience indeed, and such a fantastic way to learn about the local rural culture. I also love that they offer free walking tours which is a great introduction to a particular place.
