We do have some shops over here. Where are you going? Germany might be much smaller than the USA, but I guess travelling 500 miles for a shop might be a little bit too far. Even if you are used to american distances ;-)
We are starting in Cologne, staying with friends in Hamberg going to Berlin, Nuremberg, Dachau for sure. We will be there for three weeks and have a 10 day rail pass. So anywhere around those cities. Thanks for your help.
Trains aren't a bad way to travel the country, but you'll be doing a lot of walking between main stations and slot stores if you don't have a car, as Ralf has already suggested. I don't have a car but, in my experience, most German cities have good tram and bus links and you can get travel cards easily and relatively cheaply.
