  • FAQs

    Wednesday, 12 May 2010
    How do I find out more about individual countries and cities?
    Search By Language or By Destination using the menu on the left, click on your language and the countries that speak that language appear. Just click on the one that interests you and browse through its cities. Alternatively you can use our amazing 'Select a Country' map search at the top of the site.

    What if I already know which city I want to go to?
    You can find your chosen city using the left menu, the map search or you can type it in the search bar. The city profile will appear, along with any listings, reviews, posts, etc. relating to your chosen destination!

    In the guidebook, what’s the difference between a listing and a review?

    A listing is detailed information on a particular course or venue in a city, which has been added to by one of our users. You can add one yourself here. A review is a user's opinion/rating of a listing, so you can only write a review if the listing exists already.

    How do I set up a profile on
    You can register with by clicking register here at the top right-hand corner of the site. You can even use the information on your Facebook profile by clicking on the blue 'connect' button - which means you don't have to fill out a whole new profile!

  • Germany

    Wednesday, 12 May 2010

    A country which has been famed for its torn history, its political movements, its varied and picturesque countryside, its fine beverages, its festivals, its innovative music and much, much more, Germany attracts many a mover and a shaker. Thanks to a constantly shifting repartition of power and provinces, Germany, it would be fair to say, has not one, but many, important cities. Munich, Cologne, Berlin and Frankfurt are just a few of the jewels to be found in the Deutschland crown. So many cultural and architectural landmarks can be found across the country, from castles to medieval towns to war ruins and an underground party scene... you’ll be spoilt for choice as to what to do or see.
