Rick's Travel Tips
Explore Europe confidently, efficiently and safely using these travel tips.
Rick Steves advocates smart, affordable, perspective-broadening travel. As host and writer of the popular public television series "Rick Steves' Europe," and best-selling author of 40 European travel books, he encourages Americans to travel as "temporary locals." He helps American travelers connect much more intimately and authentically with Europe — and Europeans — for a fraction of what mainstream tourists pay.
In this episode, Rick teams up with his wife and kids to enjoy the good life, dipping into a classy mineral spa, trying our luck at a fancy casino, devouring chocolate-cherry cake, and exploring Germany's most romantic forest.
