San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Natural Bridges State Beach and Bodega Dunes. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Alcatraz Island and Grace Cathedral. You'll find plenty of places to visit near San Francisco: Mavericks (in Half Moon Bay), Moss Beach (Friends of Fitzgerald Marine Preserve & Fitzgerald J V Marine Reserve) and Shark Fin Cove (in Davenport). There's much more to do: admire the majestic nature at Armstrong Redwood State Reserve, contemplate the long history of SS Jeremiah O'Brien, take in the views from Golden Gate Bridge, and take an in-depth tour of Tenderloin Museum.

To find traveler tips, ratings, photos, and tourist information, refer to the San Francisco trip planner.

Dusseldorf, Germany to San Francisco is an approximately 15.5-hour combination of train and flight. Traveling from Dusseldorf to San Francisco, you'll gain 9 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Dusseldorf in May, expect a bit warmer with lows of 13°C in San Francisco. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Fri) to allow enough time to travel to Albuquerque.

Albuquerque remains one of the state's secret jewels, as its tourist attractions are often overshadowed by the more popular holiday destination of Santa Fe.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Loretto Chapel and Canyon Road. The Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi and Bandelier National Monument will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Albuquerque: Santa Fe (Cathedral Park, Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, &more) and Los Alamos History Museum (in Los Alamos). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of San Felipe de Neri Church, explore the striking landscape at Petroglyph National Monument, see the interesting displays at The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History, and get a new perspective on nature at New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science.

For ratings, photos, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Albuquerque road trip planning site.

You can fly from San Francisco to Albuquerque in 5 hours. Other options are to drive; or do a combination of bus and train. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from San Francisco to Albuquerque. When traveling from San Francisco in May, plan for a bit warmer days and about the same nights in Albuquerque: temperatures range from 29°C by day to 12°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
