Often times when planning a trip we know that staying in popular tourist places can be more expensive compared to staying in a less popular place nearby. The same is true when booking your next Germany vacation and targeting to stay at a popular destination like Munich (Munich vacation rentals | Munich travel guide), Berlin (Berlin vacation rentals | Berlin travel guide), Frankfurt (Frankfurt vacation rentals | Frankfurt travel guide), or Heidelberg (Heidelberg vacation rentals | Heidelberg travel guide). Besides the higher pricing for your accommodation, limited availability is also a problem one faces when preparing their Germany travel arrangements.

When doing a Germany travel search, the difficulty however is to know what places to look for that are conveniently nearby, and which offer good quality vacation rentals or holiday rentals.

The Germany Travel Search on Live Like a German makes it easy for you to find those hidden gems - less popular destinations near popular tourist places that offer affordable pricing and availability for vacation rentals, and allow you to still conveniently explore all nearby major tourist attractions and sights. The trade-off is typically a small 5-10 minute trip with a car or taking advantage of Germany's well built-out public transportation system.

Here is an example how it works:

  1. Go to
  2. Use the search box at the top to search for your popular destination in Germany, e.g., try 'Munich'
  3. While you're typing the search box will try to auto-complete your query to assist you in the search process.
  4. The search page then lists apartments and other travel resources (e.g., travel guides) for Munich at the top. However, if you scroll down a little you can see (for the Munich example):
Browse vacation apartments in nearby destinations: Schwanthalerhoehe (Schwanthalerhoehe vacation rentals | Schwanthalerhoehe travel guide), Schwabing (Schwabing vacation rentals | Schwabing travel guide), Sendling (Sendling vacation rentals | Sendling travel guide), Bogenhausen (Bogenhausen vacation rentals | Bogenhausen travel guide), Oberföhring (Oberföhring vacation rentals | Oberföhring travel guide), Unterföhring (Unterföhring vacation rentals | Unterföhring travel guide), Fürstenried (Fürstenried vacation rentals | Fürstenried travel guide), Neuried (Bavaria), Aschheim (Aschheim vacation rentals | Aschheim travel guide), Gräfelfing (Gräfelfing vacation rentals | Gräfelfing travel guide), ...

While doing this Germany travel search, pick any of those to browse vacation apartments that are nearby and see if they fit your needs. In case you need to know where the destination is located relatively to Munich (Munich vacation rentals | Munich travel guide) click on the Open Map button on the top left navigation menu. This will open a map which you can zoom in/out and therefore learn more about the surrounding area.

To summarize: Germany travel search makes it easy to find vacation apartments in Germany near popular destinations, and will help you save typically about 30%-40% compared to staying directly in a popular location in Germany. Give it try and write down your feedback / comments below …
