Official Euro 2024 Germany

Any German speakers here? Need something translated from English into German. Google Translate won’t cut it needs to be accurate.
 
Really impressed by that Euro 24 official app, all the information with maps etc for travel is brilliant.
Its class. Need to download it for train travel. You can put your pass into your apple wallet if you have a ticket for a game so you can travel for free in the city of the game.
 
I think @DeeGer10 should share his request publicly :D :D :D

If anyone is in Berlin on Friday and fancies somewhere a bit less hectic than the Brandeburg Gate for the opening game, Kulturbrauerei in Prenzlauer Berg (easily accessible from Mitte/Alexanderplatz) have it on for a fiver entry. It's always a decent set up with plenty of beer and food trucks etc.
Basically I asked if he could translate…

“Whore House Inspectors” into German for a flag we’re trying to get made to take to the Euros. :oops::p

It’s looking like we’ve left it too late though.
 
Trying to get a train ticket from Weeze airport to Wuppertal on Saturday 22nd but says none available can you still buy at the station

This has been updated now, mentioned earlier in the thread it’s a bus between Krefeld and Düsseldorf. You can now buy but I wouldn’t panic about tickets, same price on the day.

You get the bus from outside the Airport to Kevelaer station and that’s where you get the train to Krefeld:



 
Is it worth buying the 49 euro ticket and if so do I need one also for my 7 year old as it would only be for getting from weeze and back as 2 of the train journeys my fan pass should cover that

I follow a Ukrainian group on FB. Miko seems like a God over there.

This pic came up a couple of days ago.....5 Rangers players at Euro 92. Assuming that's McCoist with his back to the camera.

I’m a bit lost by your itinerary to be honest mate.

I’ve got you flying to Weeze on Saturday 22nd, then going to Wuppertal then going to Stuttgart for a fan zone for the final Scotland match on the 23rd before going to France v Poland in Dortmund on the 25th? Or are you just staying in Wuppertal whole trip and watching the final Scotland match in a fanzone around there? If it’s the latter I can’t help but think it would be easier for you to stay in Krefeld the whole trip and watch Scotland v Hungary in a Düsseldorf fanzone and also just getting train to Dortmund and back for the France match.
 
Are folk taking much cash?

Assume most places completely cashless, however might be handy to have some Euros?

It's worth withdrawing some when here. You'll be fine in bigger places, but smaller pubs, bars and especially newsagents are often cash only, or at least have a minimum spend.

It's not as bad as it was before the pandemic, but Germany is still behind other countries in terms of going cashless. It's unbelievably frustrating if, like me, you're an Apple Pay devotee.

Thanks mate. Appreciate it.

I have a €50 note in my wallet from a holiday last year, that’s all I was planning on taking along with my Revolut card on my phone, but prenzlauerbears post has my reconsidering my approach. I hate carrying a lot of money/cards about with me - especially if I’m going to be having a drink.
 
England paper favourites based on players and rightly so but the handbrake manager is going to cost them.

Given their record, it's illocgal to cast Spain as dark horses but does anyone see them as 'quiet favourites'?

Really strong pool of players with no obvs weakness. Lose few goals and control the ball smartly. They perhaps lack a World Class goalscorer but they may not need one...

I fly into weeze late Friday night so staying at airport hotel then through to Wuppertal as have hotel there for 6 nights then was thinking about going to fan zone for Scotland was thinking where they were playing but that was only if it wasn’t a hassle to get to if it was then watch it close to Wuppertal Have tickets for France v Poland so going to Dortmund . Then going to Bottrop the Wednesday as my wee boy wants to go Movie Park Land.
 
I am getting a 5.5hr ICE train from Munich to dortmund on Saturday morning to head to Italy vs Albania. We have booked 1st class but wondering if anyone has travelled on one of the ICE trains before and if there is a bar on the train? If not, what time can you buy swally from the shops in Germany?

You’ll find some pubs in the Altstadt in Dusseldorf are cash only for starters. I pretty much always come across one bar only accepting cash wherever I go watching Football over there.

There is a bar on ICE trains, it’s part of the experience for me sitting or standing in them. Yormas (yellow and blue shops) are where I usually to get mine from but there are loads of shops at Munich Station, as there are at all the big ones. Don’t think there’s anything daft regarding sales times.

Think most of them have a bar carriage but you’d be cheaper buying swally in one of the shops at the station. They’ll open 7/8am and you’ll be able to buy bevvy at that time.

Cheers lads. Will probably buy some train cans in the airport then and move onto bar bottles when the cans get too warm (or too empty!).

Proper taps on ICE trains like, they aren’t that dear to be honest - well compared to say Avanti!

This will give you an idea:

There's an Edeka supermarket in Munich HBF that opens early on a Sunday. But as Wazza says, sitting in the ICE BordRestaurant with a few beers watching the world go by is one of life's simple pleasures!
 
Head out with my 16 year old laddie and father in law a week today.

Motorhome via ferry to Amsterdam and then onto Cologne where we're based.

Cannot wait.

Tickets for Belgium vs Romania in Cologne and of course the Switzerland game there too.

Read loads of great things about Cologne itself but never been before.

86 and 78 Scotland tops sorted.

Wish we had some Gers players in the squad to cheer on though.

That sounds unreal. Have you taken the Munich to Dortmund ICE before? I assumed the 'bar' would be a cupboard with warm cans, not actual draft lager!
 
10 of my mates setting out today, I think.

Noel Hunt of a journey, flying to Netherlands, somewhere else, a 6 hour bus from (or to) Essen which sounds absolutely hellish.

Few of my relatives setting off today as well I think, driving in a camper van. Sounds even worse.

Hope everyone enjoys the trip.

Me and my son heading to Cologne on Sunday for 5 days, can't wait. No tickets as of yet but keeping an eye on resale sites in case prices drop.

I'm on the Newcastle - Amsterdam Ferry on Monday with my 9 year old son and 70 year old da, driving down to Cologne on the Tuesday and staying in a wee town just outside Cologne called Monheim am Rhein. Going to try and go to the Dusseldorf fanzone on the Tuesday and then tickets for the Switzerland game on the Wednesday, Ferry home Thursday. Can't wait and my wee fella is absolutely hyper about it.

I fûckin love Germany man. I think our journey from Cologne to Frankfurt is on an ICE service, I’ll definitely be standing at one of those bars.
 
Those bars look amazing on the trains - sure we have a couple of ICE trains on our travels.

Head out tomorrow night, overnight stop at Stansted then off to Germany on Thursday for the duration of Scotland's group stage games.

Very excited now!

Used to be on them most weekends when living out there, just kicking about watching different matches. Getting a bit nostalgic this morning! Love going on them when over there.
 
My son and his mates are heading across on Saturday - Cologne then Stuttgart, home via Munich. They’ve got tickets for the Hungary game, hoping to get to other matches if possible.
 
Have a good all.

Loads of stuff on this site for pubs etc:

My flight arrives into Cologne at 23.45 on Sunday and our digs are in Frechen. Anyone know best taxi company to use in Cologne? Will have an exhausted 9 yr old with me so not sure train will be a good idea at that time of night.
