I will be visiting Germany for the first time later this month. Where is the best place to shop for toys? (electronics, digital cameras, PCs, etc...) Thanks!

Be sure to check opening hours, theres a good chance that they are much more limited than you are used to.

Well if you plan a visit in cologne don't miss enzo, a wonderful Italian
'restaurant'.

The enterior is more simple but the look and feel and the cuisine is really Italian.

Also try out the cocktailarea near the university at 'Südbahnhof' station.

If you plan to visit the shopping area (called Zeil) in Frankfurt, check out MyZeil since they have a pretty big electronics shop (Saturn, similar to Media Markt) on the top floor :3 There's a ton of other cool stores, including restaurants, but I'd avoid eating there since the prices are kind of high compared to other locations (lots of bankers go for lunch there).

hmmm Frankfurt -> Ingolstadt be sure that you take autobahn 3/9. There you have long distances where you may drive as fast as you wish. xD

Oh and enjoy our trafic jams and construction sides on the Autobahn :eek:

We're in Köln drinking Kölsch tonight. Unfortunately we'll be in Paris by Wednesday. But I have enjoyed everything about Germany during our short visit. Hopefully I'll be back soon and get to buy you a round on behalf of us all!

Nobody here seems to want to be around Berlin... ok, I can understand.
Well, if somebody needs a guide there, tell me.
