QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How many days are enough for Europe?

    You can spend a couple of months exploring Europe and still feel like you have not seen everything. Generally speaking, a two-week Europe trip should be just enough if you are looking to cover its major highlights. However, if you want a comprehensive travel experience within this duration, it is better that you focus on a region or a few countries rather than traveling all over the continent. 

    Choose a single country or schedule your trip around a handful of cities in different countries. While larger European cities may require three to four days to explore, you can get around smaller destinations in a day or two. Planning your trip around a particular region will cut down your travel time and save your time in transit.

  • Do I need a visa to travel to Germany?

    A stay in Germany for up to 90 days requires a Schengen short-stay visa, also known as a C-type visa. However, if you plan to stay in Germany for over 90 days, you will need a German long-stay visa (D-type visa). Entry requirements will vary depending on your country. We recommend you check with the German embassy or consulate in your country before making your travel plans.

  • What is the best time to visit Germany?

    The best season to visit Germany is between May and October when the weather is pleasant. This is an excellent time for wandering around beer gardens, skiing in the Alps, and exploring the cities of Germany. The weather can be unpredictable between January and March. That said, you can still visit Germany anytime, as the country hosts events all year.

  • What language is spoken in Germany?

    German is both the most widely spoken and the official language of Germany. While 95 percent of the population speaks German, English is a commonly practiced foreign language among the citizens, followed by French, Spanish and Russian. Since Germany has a large migrant population, it is only natural to come across people speak Turkish and Italian, among other foreign languages.

     

  • Are credit cards widely accepted in Germany?

    Cash accounts for more than 80 percent of all transactions in Germany. Even though Visa and MasterCard are widely accepted here, many companies only accept card payments for sales over a certain amount. Before using your card, check with your card issuer about foreign transactions and currency exchange fees, as they could be particularly high in Germany.
