That would be "schweinhaxen", and man those are GREAT.

Too bad you won't be there for Oktoberfest, Sawdust.

There used to be a place in Berchestgaden (sp) that served some pretty good ribs - I have no idea how he cooked them and didn't care.:razz: It's a drive from Munich...but if you get time for a side trip the history in that place is enough to warrant the trip.

It was in the basement of one of the local businesses just down the hill from the Gen. Walker Hotel...good ribs and great beer! The owner would ask you at the end of the meal, "corn"? Most moronic Americans would say "no corn" and miss out on the excellent schnapps that was being offered!!:biggrin:

due to the strictness of the German beer laws, it is actually the same beer that you would get in any Guesthaus local to the area.... yum yum good:shock:

Make sure you make it to the Haufbrauhaus!. The best bar in the world. I did that when I was 15 years old. Big beers and big fraulines serving them. Buy a souvineer mug before you leave.

Now thats my kind of fast food! They really take their beer seriously. I had some Germans over to visit some customers of mine back in November and we went to the Black Forest Brew Haus over in Farmingdale after work their last night in the US. I asked them how they liked the beer and they said it was like drinking water. I guess their beers are a bit heavier than ours although they did like the Heffeweise.

I agree. Great beer and great times. They serve beer by the liter. A couple of those and you are feeling no pain. Be prepared to sing. This is a must stop.

Get your international drivers license, and if you have a chance get out of town. The small gasthaus out in the villages will provide some of the best food you'll ever eat. The Bavarians do it right. As an American all you have to do is show them courtesy, respect, and an effort to meet them half-way and they will give you incredible service and a meal to remember.

I love that part of Germany if you can't tell.

You are right. Some rental companies may still require it. Last I heard the cost was $10 via AAA which is licensed by DoS to handle it.

I used to live in Fulda about 60 clicks north of Frankfurt. Beautiful area. Last time I was there, it was apple wine season. I went with 15 women and myself. A class in nursing school to study transcultural nursing. Started in England for a week, a 5 day tour of West and East Berlin, and then a trip to Frankfurt for a week. Hammered on apple wine. Probably one of my most memorable trips of a life time. Man it was great!!! Scott

Ah, Fulda...the old USSR's expressway into the rest of Europe!

I did a study for the 11ACR back in 1990 and was told by their XO that their primary function was to be a speed-bump.

You are so right about it being a beautiful area.

Fulda.... brings back memories .. couple of funny stories, but a real eye opener ...I had to go there to deliver munitons at the "Gap", as it was called back then....A Major told us life expectancy in Fulda for a war between Russia and the US, was three seconds... We, US, had 1 tank division, Ruskies had 25.. drank alot of beer that night :eusa_clap

My father was stationed at...wassakuppa (sp) working on US radar installations. Apparently the mountain was always shrouded in fog and we didn;t even know about the glider training center there until we actually got to the top in WWII. Our friends who still live there, raise saluki's. Occaisionally one would get loose, cross the DMZ and be gone. Scary chit around there. I believe it was the USSR's via-duct. S
