Advices about our itiniary

Jump to last reply

Hi , My family of four (2 adults, 2 kids 4 and 8 yearls old) are going to Germany next summer (22-25 days between july 11 and august 20). I need advice on that itiniary (we are very open to any change since nothing is booked yet).

Our plan is to go to 4-5 base place and stay ther for 4-5 nights and them do daytrip from those place. We intend to do it all by train but if most of you tells us that the car is a better way to go we can rent one (for the whole trip or part of it) .

- Arrival in Luxembourg (stay all day and one night because of jet lag ! We choose that place instead of Munich, Frankfurt or Berlin because it would cost something like 300$ less by person)

- Luxembourg- Boppard (Cochem ? Koblenz ?)4-5 nights

- Boppard- Berlin 4-5 nights

- Berlin Dresden 2 nights

- Dresden-Nuremberg 3-4 nights Nuremberg (or a small town not too far from Nuremberg)

- Nuremberg-Munich 4-5 nights Munich (Maybe Prien since we want to do a daytrip to Salzburg)

- Munich Luxembourg (the worst part I guess, since it means we have to take a long train that last 7-8 hours,) 1 night Luxembourg and back home !

Questions:

1) Should we do it another way (Munich first, Nuremberg, Berlin and Moselle valley last for exemple)

2) Is it too rushed ?

3) any suggestions for our bases that take in account that we need moments for adults (Architecture, history and wine !) and for kids (zoo, park) ?

Thanks a lot in advance !
