December is one of the best months of the year to visit Germany. Yes, it is cold. But there are Christmas markets in every city, town and even small villages and the atmosphere is just magical. Two years ago I was lucky to attend my first Christmas market in Germany. I need to admit that after seeing many other Christmas markets after that, it doesn’t feel so special anymore. But there is something that makes me go to the Christmas market again and again. As you probably guessed from the title, it is food and drinks.
Flixbus is the biggest company offering long-distance bus service all over Germany and is rapidly expanding its network in Europe. Compared to Deutsche Bahn, Flixbus offers affordable tickets and is therefore especially attractive for young people.
Over the past year, I had a love-hate relationship with Flixbus. At first, I was really happy to find such a cheap way to travel and small problems didn’t seem to bother me much. The more I travelled with Flixbus, the more disadvantages I started to notice. At one point I was so disappointed with their service that I said I would never use them again. After a while I started travelling with Flixbus again, but only when it fits my travel plans the best. Here is some information I wish I knew before I did my first ride.
