Germany Travel Planning Services

“Omgggg you are amazing!!! Thank you so much for the itinerary – it helped a lot. A few of my daughters friends who she was in college with and live in Germany, said your itinerary is very very good!” –  Monica 

You like travel planning but you’re pressed for time and don’t know where to begin when it comes to visiting Germany.

You’re feeling stressed out trying to decide things like…

  • Stick to Bavaria or can we fit in Berlin, too?
  • Drive a rental car or book Super Saver train tickets?
  • Is buying a rail pass a waste of money?
  • Is our itinerary setting us up for exhaustion or will we regret not seeing more sights?
  • How can we get off the beaten path?
  • Should we book tickets and tours before we leave or after we arrive?
  • Are guided tours and day trips worth the money? Or can we DIY them?
  • How do I know if we’re overpacking?
  • What do we need to know about German culture to enjoy our trip?

It can be overwhelming and time-consuming to plan a trip to a country or city you’re unfamiliar with – even if you’re an experienced traveler!

There are SO many questions to answer and finding answers that actually help you plan an amazing trip can be like searching for a needle in a haystack.

That’s where my 30+ years of Germany travel, culture, and language expertise come in.

Hello, I’m Cate. I not only have over 3 decades experience traveling aaaaaaall over Germany, I’ve lived in several German cities, taught German in the US, used to coach people preparing to live and work in Germany, and even have a PhD in German Applied Linguistics. I know a lot about Germany!

Over the years I’ve helped loads of people plan trips to beautiful Deutschland – everything from a few days to several weeks. Solo trips to family vacations. Focusing on the best castles and cobblestoned villages to off the beaten path.

Helping travelers craft a personalized itinerary they’re excited about and answering Germany travel questions so they feel confident once the plane lands is one of the best parts of running a travel business. I’d love to help you, too!

Here’s How It Works:

1. As soon as you book your 60 or 90 minute session below, you’ll fill out a short intake form about your upcoming trip, and we’ll set a date and time for your meeting.

2. During our live session we’ll meet in Zoom or over the phone (your choice). I’ll answer all of your Germany travel questions and can help you craft your itinerary. After our meeting I’ll email you links or resources we discussed.

3. If you book the 90-minute itinerary planning session, I’ll also send you a detailed, personalized itinerary with links and resources (PDF) and our Germany Trip Planner (PDF, $24.99 value).

Please note that I do not book anything on your behalf. But I can help you figure out the best booking sites for your trip, show you how to buy German train tickets, make seat reservations, etc.
