How to spend 24 hours in Dresden

In English-speaking circles, its name conjures images of dreariness and tragedy. But Dresden - a city shaped by kings, communists and artists - has reinvented itself once again.

Ludwig flushed harder, losing his battle to keep his own arousal under control. His face was flushed a bright red by this point and he was struggling to think straight. He wanted more of Alfred’s kisses and the other’s hands touching him lovingly made him feel ridiculously fuzzy inside. It felt like speaking was delaying what they both so much wanted to do.

Alfred smiled. He heard what he wanted to hear and more. He lifted his head from the German’s shoulder and gave him a kiss on the cheek. The American then pushed himself from the ground.

"I say we go back and explore the contents of the box together." He grinned like a cat that swallowed the canary, and then offered a hand out to Ludwig and pulled him up from the ground. After one well intended adjustment to his pants, practically dragged Ludwig back to their room.

Once back in the room, Alfred looked to Ludwig expectantly. “Should we do this in my room or yours?” He did not mind either way. He brought the German’s hand to his lips and kissed it lightly. He then kissed it further up his arm, again and again, until he reached Ludwig’s soft lips. Alfred then walked them backwards and pressed the his boyfriend up against the door and began to kiss him harder.

Garmisch-Patenkirchen in Bayern (Bavaria), Southern Germany was founded by uniting the 2 towns of Garmisch and Partenkirchen by a decree of Adolf Hitler to bring the 1936 Winter Olympics to Germany. The Olympic Committee was going to pass over Germany as the host as there were not enough hotel rooms in the host town, so Hitler forced the unification of Garmisch and Partenkirchen to create a larger town, which would be more appealing. Now it is one of Germany’s premier tourist ski town with great hiking, skiing, and biking opportunities. It lies a few kilometers from the Austrian border and is less than an hour by car from Munich - the ride is mostly a beautiful stretch of Autobahn. Expect to drive up to 3 hours on weekends and public holidays. Trains leave to and from Munich every hour, a 90 min ride on the local and 60 mins on the express. It is also a great end to a Romantic Road day trip beginning in Rothenburg, stopping at various recommended heritage towns and ending in Garmisch as it is a good base to drive out to Fuessen [King Ludwig’s Neuschwanstein castle] and Innsbruck/Austria along some spectacular mountain drives.

The 2014 edition of the Oktoberfest in München (Munich) will officially begin today, Saturday, Sept 20th. At noon, the mayor of Munich will tap the first barrel of beer. Once it has been opened, all visitors will be able to quench their thirst. It’s a good idea to arrive early to ensure the best seats. The festivities will end on Sunday, Oct 5.

Kulturschock: Kanadierinnen & Aussies auf der Wiesn | Oktoberfest München - Part 1/2

Oktoberfest is a 16-day festival held annually in Munich, Bavaria, Southern Germany. Running from late Sept to the first weekend in Oct, it is one of the most famous events in Germany and is the world’s largest fair, with more than 6 million people from around the world attending the event every year. To the locals, it is not called Oktoberfest, but “die Wiesn”, after the colloquial name of the fairgrounds themselves. The Oktoberfest is a big part of Bavarian culture, having been held since 1810. Other cities across the world also hold Oktoberfest celebrations, modeled after the original event. The Munich Oktoberfest originally took place during the 16 days up to the first Sunday in October. In 1994, the schedule was modified in response to German Reunification so that if the first Sunday in October falls on the 1st or 2nd, then the festival would go on until October 3 (German Unity Day). The festival is held in an area named the Theresienwiese (field, or meadow, of Therese), often called Wiesn for short, located near Munich’s center. Large quantities of beer are consumed, with almost 7 million liters served during the festival in 2007. Visitors may also enjoy a wide variety of traditional food such as Hendl (chicken), Schweinebraten (roast pork), Schweinshaxe (grilled ham hock), Steckerlfisch (grilled fish on a stick), Würstl (sausages) along with Brezeln (pretzel), Knödel (potato or bread dumplings), Käsespätzle (cheese noodles), Reiberdatschi (potato pancakes), Sauerkraut or Rotkohl/Blaukraut (red cabbage) along with such Bavarian delicacies as Obatzda (a spiced cheese-butter spread) and Weisswurst (a white sausage). There also are fairground rides.
