    Have been a member for a while, gleaning the site for useful info but never said hello
    We (John n' Judy) are return following a spell with old series 2 in BC days
    Actually not sure if we qualify as we only have a small van conversion and because of continued family and work commitments can only get away during Spring and Autumn
    Currently meandering our way through Southern Germany - Trier - Mosel - Rhine - Romantic Route - now down to the Alps with just the Black Forest before heading back
    Oh the emissions badge debate - we got ours by post through TGV Nord (email would not connect) in 3 days - not needed for rural but many towns as well as cities require them - in Augsburg all vehicles have either class 3 or 4 - have a couple of places advertising them but not fuel stations etc - no idea how they police it though??
    During the winter I will try to turn my day lg into a readable blog
    Simple soul

    Welcome on board.

    Excuse the spelling but try google umweltplakette - don't be ripped off by an agency, you can do it directly with one of the TUV organisations or ADAC. Cheap and quick.. If you are euro 4 emissions then you get a green one which is access all areas

    We visited the Zugspitze this morning and at 8.45 it was 2c plus the wind chill but by mid day back at ground level it had reached 25c, the best day so far but we have had dry and reasonably warm over here throughout our trip - presently at Oberammergau, heading for the Black Forest on Sat
    When we get home I will post more info for TUV Nord including contact mail for the lady who dealt with my application

    Did you pay to do the train/car tour ?

    It seemed a bit pricy but I think I've regretted it since. What an awesome town, pure €€€€€€€€ and surprisingly $$$$$$$$.

    Hi, as it gets really busy quickly we went for the cable car option - at 8.45 straight to the cable car parking we got straight into a car but they do squeeze 40 in at a time - this was just ahead of the arrival of the first train - some stay on the train to the glacier and then catch another car the the top whilst others get off the train and go to the top by cable car -seems that regardless of your chosen route the cost is 51E - you can of course hike to the top, 5 hrs seems about the time needed and then of course you would need to get back down but some do the whole thing
    Me? I would not do it again in a hurry but it was well worth it as a one off - well scary when quite near the top the wind started to whistle and the car was swaying freely with 40 bodies in it - not quite """"less but close!
    Oh by 10.30 the que was right back through the ropes and out of the door
