Packing for Germany
Visiting Germany in summer? Make sure you pack for sun exposure. Suncream, sunglasses and a hat are essentials, and long-sleeved shirts are a good idea to keep your arms covered. If you’re beach-bound don’t forget your swimming gear, and be sure to check whether your hotel provides beach towels because you may be required to bring your own. Be prepared for rainfall too, particularly in the east including the cities of Dresden and Berlin.
If you’re heading to the Bavaria region for some outdoors adventures, don’t forget your hiking boots and your watersports gear – Lake Starnberg and its surrounding bodies of water offer ample opportunity for windsurfers and wake boarders. Whatever you’re planning to get up to, Germany luggage shipping service will take your kit direct to your destination.
Ship your bike to Germany
Germany has plenty to offer cyclists. As well as bike-friendly cities there are cycle tracks criss-crossing areas of outstanding beauty, from the coast in the north to the mountains in the south. Let Luggage Mule ship your bike to Germany and you can explore the industrial architecture of Munich on two wheels, pedal through the Bavarian countryside on the famous 154-mile Benedict Route (Benediktweg), or circle the tranquil Lake Chiemsee on its family-friendly bike path. In the north, there’s also the Baltic Sea bike route along the Jade Bay, and the impressive Deutsche Fehnroute.
Ship your skis to Germany
Most of Germany’s best skiing is in Bavaria. There’s something for every level of skier, from the family-friendly Balderschwang, with its 30kms of winter wonderland piste, to the après-ski focussed Garmisch-Partenkirchen on the Austrian border. Skip the ski hire queues by letting Luggage Mule ship your skis and boots to Germany. We’ll deliver to the resort of your choice, so you can get straight to the slopes as soon as you arrive.
Ship your golfing gear to Germany
With over 700 golf clubs and an ever-growing national interest, Germany is one of Europe’s best golf destinations. There are some particularly scenic courses in the south, including the hugely popular Golf Club Starnberg; but the north has its share of notable courses too, such as Hamburger Golfclub Falkenstein. Whether you’re a devoted golfer or just fancy playing a relaxing round during your Germany trip, you can take your own golf clubs along with ease thanks to Luggage Mule’s Germany golf shipping service.
What to ship home from Germany
Germany may well produce the best Riesling wine in the world but it’s the beer that really shines here. But why limit yourself to a stein or two? With a generous 30kg allowance, our Germany luggage shipping service allows you to buy up plenty of your favourite German beer and have it delivered to right back to your door. Other popular souvenirs to ship home from Germany include lederhosen from the Alpine regions, hand-carved cuckoo clocks from the Black Forest and Christmas ornaments from one of the famous German winter markets.
