(NW)" GLAD YOU ASKED: . . . . . Question: We are planning'a trip to Munich and Frankfurt, Germany, and are having difficulty getting information about public ; transportation to travel from place to place. Donald Sirl, Palm Beach Shores Answer: Germany is the place to use trains. Even the small-est villages have train stations. : You definitely don't need a car. - . Call (800) 438-7245 or a travel agent and ask about a German Rail Pass (varying rates depend-ing on length of time). The pass also includes half-day ferry trips on the Rhine River between Koblenz and Mainz. ' In Munich and Frankfurt, , you'll have fun using the metros. In both cities, the underground trains are called U-Bahr and the above-ground trains are cajled S- Bahn. All public transportation is efficient and easy to figure out. : I highly recommend longer 3-; night cruises on the Rhine be tween Basel, Switzerland, and' Dusseldorf, Germany. Rates (in June) start at $575 per person. Call (800) 346-6525. You spend plenty of time at stops including Strasbourg, France, and Cologne, , Germany, and see lots of medi- ;; eval castles along the way. And ; you don't have to worry about lugging luggage and finding restaurants. ., ., ' ; , . ' .
