10 days from Hannover to Stuttgart - route recommendations, please?

Jump to last reply

After a considerable amount of umming and erring, I have finally succeeded in getting DH to commit to 10 days in Germany this September. The clincher was that Flybe offer flights from our local airport [Newquay] to Hannover and and Stuttgart, which is considerably better than having to fly from Bristol, a three hour drive away. OK, we'll have to cool our heels at Birmingham for an hour or so each way, but we can put up with that for the convenience of being only 30 minutes drive away from Newquay.

So the rough plan is to fly into Hannover and out of Stuttgart, leaving on 4th September and coming back on the 15th, which gives us exactly 10 days [11 nights]. However, we are likely to be spending the last 3 nights with our friends in Landau, which cuts down the actual trip to about 8 days, the last one of which will largely be spent travelling to Landau.

We have never been to Hannover and arrive quite late at night, so my plan is to spend a couple of nights in Hannover and then to pick up a car and set off.

This is my first stab at an itinerary:

Sept 4 - arrive Hannover at about 9pm.
Sept 5 - Explore Hannover.
Sept 6 - collect car, and drive through the Harz to Quedlinburg, which seems to be the most highly recommended of the possible stopping places.
Sept 7 - stay Q'burg and explore area.
Sept 8 - drive to Erfurt - stay 2 nights
Sept 9 - explore Erfurt and area
Sept 10 - drive to Bamburg, stay 2 nights
Sept 11 - explore Bamberg and area
Sept 12 - drive to Landau
Sept 13, 14 - with friends
Sept 15 - fly home.

This gives us only 2 nights stops in each place - am I selling anywhere short? Would it be better to stop longer in fewer places, and if so, which one would you leave out?

as ever, many thanks for any thoughts and ideas you may have.
