City Information

Ingolstadt

Ingolstadt is the setting for Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein," but it's the birthplace of more than just monsters. A professor at the University of Ingolstadt founded the original Illuminati secret society in 1776 (the organization disbanded a few years later). These days, Ingolstadt hosts the headquarters of many top German companies such as Audi, Airbus, and Saturn. Car fans will definitely want to check out the Audi Museum's collection of classic cars and join a guided tour through the Audi factory.

History lovers should opt instead for the New Castle, a Gothic structure housing the Bavarian Army Museum. The German Museum of Medicine History, located in the university's Baroque yellow Old Anatomy Building, includes indoor exhibits and a verdant garden of medicinal plants.

It's easy to reach Ingolstadt from nearby cities such as Munich on intercity buses from carriers like FlixBus. Those traveling farther might choose a seat on a Deutsche Bahn train, which arrives at the Ingolstadt Nord or Ingolstadt Hauptbahnhof stations.

Berlin

Berlin is one of the most exciting destinations in Europe for all travelers. One of the most unique landmarks in Berlin is its famous Brandenburg Gate, which was built for King Frederick Wilhelm II. The Gate now represents German unity, and it is perhaps the most photogenic landmark in the capital city. Modern art enthusiasts should visit the Urban Nation Museum for Urban Contemporary Art which is Germany’s first street art museum. Opened in 2017, the museum displays works from various graffiti artists from around the world and it’s located in Schöneberg, one of the city’s edgier areas. If you’re simply looking to enjoy a stroll, the Tiergarten, which spans 519 acres from central Berlin, will offer the relaxing vibes you need.

Berlin has an expansive and vibrant food scene with a good variety. Those looking for traditional German dishes should head over to Zur letzten Instanz, which is the oldest restaurant in Berlin. For a special twist, don’t hesitate to visit the Turkish Market, which offers amazing Turkish delicacies.

The main hub for intercity bus services is the Zentraler Omnibusbahnhof Berlin. For rail services, the Berlin Hauptbahnhof is the main train station. The Berlin Brandenburg Airport, located just outside of the city’s south-eastern border, is the main air travel hub of the city.
