I'm off on my usual crusade to the continent in September 17 in a desperate attempt to drain more of the European wine lake. Tastings all organised. But I get onto the continent with four days to kill. Please assume I've visited the Mosel/ Rhine/Alsace/ Pfalz/Champagne enough times to not need to visit them again on this trip. Don't worry about booking rooms, I'm comfortable with the amount of time left to book stuff.

I'm looking for some interesting places between Rotterdam and the Rheingau. Ideas could include spas, art works, museums, flea markets, walking, breweries, factories, engineering works, folk dancing in fact about everything except football though Mrs B is now past canoing she does like a summer luge.

So far I've put together some ideas
Siegen for the beer festival
Frankfurt for the Rheingau wine festival and Studel museum
Freiburg
Bruhl for the Max Ernst
Cologne the Wallraf-Richartz
Worms (for the diet :-) )
Metz for the old buildings and modern art

I still don't know the area very well, any ideas warmly welcomed.
