Here is Victoria's Feedback:

Germany for the birth of Our First Grandchild"
We went to Germany for the birth of our first grandchild. The apartment was perfect. It was close to a grocery store and many restarants. The apartment was fully furnished with all linens and utensils in the kitchen. We ate most of our evening meals at the apartment. We are retired military, so we were able to buy our food on base and save money. It was very secure...You needed a key to access the building. While the apartment was on a main road, it was very quite. We used the apartment as a home base while we tour most of southern Germany and Switzerland. Tubegin is a great college town with lots of downtown eateries and bakeries. The bus to Tubegin ran right in front of our apartment. Our landlord was very helpful and spoke english quite well.

What I liked best: The balcony for my husband to sit outside and smoke.

What I liked least: Not enough english channels on the TV
