After the end of the Second World War, several divisions of the US Army were permanently stationed in West Germany. At the time of the Cold War, there were constantly more than 200,000 US soldiers. For taking a trip into your past, this tour is just perfect for you!<br>Heidelberg is the ideal starting point for such a trip, as the majority of the US troops were stationed within a radius of just 50 miles around Heidelberg. If you go to "What To Expect" you may find more than 130 relevant sites including the names of barracks and other US facilities.<br>The name of my boutique-style chauffeur and limousine service is "a friend in heidelberg". Many guests of mine told me that this very name is the perfect choice.<br>I was not only born in the famous historical city of Heidelberg and know the area extremely well, but also lived and worked in the US and hence speak fluent English. If you wish I can help you with the organization of your trip ahead of time.<br>You will be chauffeured in a Mercedes S-Class, virtually a private jet for the road, equipped with all state-of-the-art features.

This is a great circular forest walk for all of the family which could be done in a couple of hours or at a more leisurely pace. It involves a little heigh gain but nowhere is it steep or difficult. The trail is well signed and there are many information boards (in German and English) which explain aspects of Celtic history and customs and show how the Celtic settlement would have have looked. It is a very pleasant walk though mature forest with the added interest of being able to learn something about pre-Roman era history of the peoples who first settled here.

Went walking with spouse and two kids on the trail and thoroughly enjoyed it. Most of the signage is in English as well as German. Nice places to stop for a picnic along the way. Note that they are currently managing the forest along the trail, so you will see stumps and cut logs along the trail. There are many old growth trees as well as plantation spruce. It took us nearly 4 hours to complete the walk, but adults could do it in 2 hours. Good relaxing walk away from the city.

Took the subway from the Frankfurt main station (€15 day pass for 5 people includes travel on tram and bus ) to Bad Homburg. from there either the bus # 5 ( from 9.25am) or subway (from 8.24am) to Saalburge station from where a 2.8k walk will take you to Saalburg . From there numerous Taunus treks you can follow. You can also spot Deer and Red squirrel and lots of birds along the way. Some nice restaurants in Sandplaken -2 hours walk.
