Anybody known German?

What are they saying in these 3 ads? I understand "Mercedes Benz" and that is all.

Thank you!

Of course, there can be variations in how they are translated, but that should be pretty close, if not, correct.

Not obvious from the horrific assembly of the subject of your reply. To a German, it would be barely one step above completely unintelligible. Next time, remember that the verb is what the sentence is built around, along with the fact that sometimes, just sometimes, things don't translate direct and you need to know how they are expressed in the language you're using.

And which town is the one with the old castle close to the huge bridge? Looks like Koblenz area from the same time as the add.

That could be Lichtenstein. In Germany there are lots of castles.

That's very far-fetched.

Theres is also a castle in SW Germany, in Baden Wurtenberg that looks like this one. I don't remember the town anymore since I was 15 years that I've been there.

Yea I watched the video and paid better attention to it. This must the in the south off Germany. I also see that there is a town around the castle on the base. I'm going to try to figure out castle that is.
