Petrol Prices in Germany

Hi,

Planning an extended trip to Berlin this year. I am more than a tad concerned with the ever increasing petrol prices. There is a UK edition, which I use for the UK trips - http://www.petrolprices.com/, is there a German version?

Thanks for any help given.

Best regards
Adam

Re: Petrol Prices in Germany

Wow not good news. My wife and I leave for Germany in a few weeks and we're renting a car. It was around 1.20 per liter for diesel when we were there last, about 1.5 years ago. I always try to get a diesel because it's usually cheaper than gas and they get really good mileage.

Re: Petrol Prices in Germany

Ray,

I wish we were heading in your direction. I have planned to go on the Castle Route / Romantic Route ending up at the Neuschwanstein Castle. However as you know SWMBO is not a great fan of the two wheelers, and feels this is too ambitious! I already feel I am lucky that she will go to Berlin on the Beast. Of course this depends on the wee beastie. I have a feeling that she is a little scared of going into Germany. Last time the starter switch unit failed!

If we cannot get a hotel etc. then perhaps we will head your way. Will keep you informed when I know what we are doing!

I would like to explore a bit of Germany, one piece at a time.

Best regards
Adam

Unfortunately everything fell through. Didn't get to go to Germany, nor Basel! The former was caused by no decent places, and the other was caused by circumstances! However the trip to Basel is still on the cards, however it is likely to be for next year!

Re: Petrol Prices in Germany

" No decent places "

Huh?, to see or to stay?
I can only say one of the finest places in the world with great food and better hospitality.
There is more to see there than one could possably fathom in one short holiday, and road selection is superb.

My apologies to our German friends - I was not implying that Berlin does not have nice places to stay! Rather I was attempting to say that I could not find places at a price I could afford (and were decent!)

The Berlin trip is still on the cards, but only a question of when rather than if! Still so many unanswered questions before it is realised!

Hi Slammer, Or is it now Professor Slammer

Glad to hear that you passed the CELTA. I was planning on sending you an email, but you beat me to it!

Unfortunately I am now at my reserve holidays - the ones I keep for the oops, I need a day off! so traveling to Basel this year is not possible. However everything being equal, the Late Spring might be a go. We now have easy access to a watcher of the kids, so we are not limited to when they are away.

Obviously if you are near Belgium, you are welcome to stop by.

I will try to send an email in the coming weekend.

Best regards
Adam
