8 Days in Germany - Where to?

Jump to last reply

Hi Folks - I have 8 days to go anywhere in Germany at the end of this month, arriving the 24th and leaving the 3rd of February. I did a similar trip two years ago where I flew into Munich, spent a few days in Munich, took a train to Prague for four days, then back to Munich for a day before heading back to the States - without too much planning, and had a great time. I am looking for another roam around and am looking for advice on where to go and what to do.

I loved Prague - the Castle, the old town, the great history. I was thinking maybe flying into Frankfurt and renting a car then heading someplace to base out of, not sure where - maybe Koblenz? A historic town where I could get an inexpensive room (under $65) on or near an old town square with parking thrown in?

Trips might include Trier, Wurzburg, Rothenburg ob der Tauber/Dinkelsbuhl - lots of scenic roads, old town squares, beautiful views, and of course castles. Would love to hit eastern France as well if it is permitted by the rental company (SIXT - any other suggestions?)

Any advice on where to stay and what to do would sure be appreciated!
