Advice for Germany trip


#1

I will take my usual Germany tour again this June, perhaps to Thüringen. My question is, if I drive on the autobahn through a green zone - do I need to buy an Umweltplakette if I do not come off the autobahn? For example driving the E40 through the Ruhrgebiet. I would rather spend money on beer rather than give it direct to the Government.


#2

No, Autobahnen in Thg (A4, A9, A38 and the way to the summits=A71/73) are not Green Zones. You need an Umweltplakette in Thg only for the inner city of (my hometown) Erfurt.

Thanks for the info Christian, I know Erfurt is uwz therefore I am looking to stay in or near Gotha. When I drive from the ferry in Dunkirk, France, the best way is via the Ruhrgebiet that was my reason for asking.
Thanks -73.

Gl with the tour - if you want to be close to a gravity center of THG-summits in the Rhön I would recommend the Meiningen area on the other side of the Rennsteig ridge - but ok, the former counts there were not as close relatives to the Windsors as is the case with Gotha :wink: :wink:
(therefore Gotha has/had high hopes that the Queen will/would visit Gotha during her Germany trip in June).
If any more infos needed call@darc.de

Will do Tom, will be last week in June. You can bring the Radeberger hi. My first time in the old East Germany except Berlin. I am looking forward to it.!

Edit, DM/SX-058 would be a new one for me :wink:

As you SOTA-athletes will be too late for the Bierathlon at DM/TH-016 running now on 21stMay from Ilmenau to the top of this 10-pointer (students having done half of their term form teams of 4 to race up with one box of 20 full 0,5l bottles), a local proposal: At the foot of (yet) DM/TH-379 sits a museum brewery (google: singen brauerei) - possibly to combine Steve’s two hobbies and to reduce the load on Tom (isn’t Radeberger now an everyday beer…).
Enjoy :smile:

We are from 27th JUN in that area … DM/TH => DM/SX => OK/KA


#9

Will contact you Mario, see if we can have another joint activation or even just a beer. I would also like to activate OK for a new country.

Give Schwarzbier a try! Except the most popular Köstritzer Schwarzbier you don’t get it in the western states.

Hi Pom, I don`t like Köstritzer Schwarzbier, I think it is a little bland, it is widely available in the UK. I like beer trips to Bamberg and Ober Franken in general. One of my favorites is Klosterbräu’s Schwärzla from Bamberg.
