I plan on going to the world cup. My iteniray is as follows

Nuremberg (3days)

Berlin (2 days)

Hannover (3 days)

Anyone have any suggestions or estimates. I am all about the inexpensive foods and resturants.

Thanks to all

Berlin can be really cheap, you just have to avoid the few touristic hotspots, which is pretty easy in Berlin.

OK - this is an extreme example, but where I live (also in Germany) a Döner Kebab is normally EUR 3,00-3,50.

Food wise EUR 15-20 will certainly do in Germany. Of course if you go to better restaurants or order cocktails at a bar not.

A day ticket public transport for Berlin is EUR 5,80.

The big museums are EUR 8,00. A 3-day museum ticket is EUR 15,00.

If you're a student (ISIC card) you'll pay only 50%.

As others have said, Doeners are an inexpensive meal, 3 euros where we live, and pizza will be about twice that. Many places sell inexpensive sandwiches for lunch such as sandwich shops and bakeries. Sometimes "catering trucks" will be outside some places selling hot food such as chickens, and some grocery stores offer hot stand-up meals for little money. In the good restaurants where I eat, the main course will usually be over 8 euros, and most items will be under 15 euros. What can really add to your bill is drinks: bottled water, coffee, tea, wine and beer. For an inexpensive dessert, just go into a bakery and buy something, or have an ice cream cone.

As someone's already said the drinks are the thing to watch out for. We had delicious Thüringerwurst from a stand on Alexanderplatz, at around 2€ I think, but drinks we had to get elsewhere and they were 3€ each. Similar thing near Zoo station where again sandwiches were OK price but drinks cost as much which didn't seem reasonable for fanta etc

In fact drinks (even water) are the real killer for a budget in lots of places, as we've noticed holiday after holiday. In France the set menu may be good value but you then get the extras like a drink : as wine/water are included in set menu in Spain we're rather spoilt here.

In Germany even at the supermarket you have to reckon in the deposit (Pfand) on all the bottles.

Paris is certainly the most expensive palce in Europe - next to London. I would plan that part of the trip very carefully...

berlin is probably cheapest next to Gelsenkirchen (is that the town you meant?). Gelsenkrichen is not such an attractive place - is an old industrial area with rahter bad air...(and about 25% unemployment rate). I would rahter go to Duesseldorf or Cologne instead.

In France, you can ask for une carafe d'eau and it's free tap water. But otherwise Germany is not expensive compared to most of Western Europe.
