Amsterdam & Germany - Itinerary Advice Please

Jump to last reply

Hi Fodorites,

I am finally adventuring somewhere other than bella Italia and I would love some advice. I feel a bit out of my comfort zone as far as distances and transportation modes go!

Rough plan:
Into Amsterdam, early am arrival
4 or 5 nts Amsterdam - see Van Gogh & Rijksmuseum (SP?), wander city, canal boat tour, Haarlem and windmills park

train to Cologne - brief sight see cathedral and pick up rental car

drive to Mosel River area
3 nts stay Beilstein - visit Burg Eltz, Cochem, bike, cruise

drive to Bacharach - 2 nts, see a bit of the Rhine

drive thru Black Forrest, stay? 1 nt

drive to Fussen / Reutte - visit castles 3 nts?

fly home from Munich or Frankfurt? Drop car at airport.

How/where to fit in Rothenburg?

Is this a reasonable plan? Some castles, some wine tasting, some churches, hiking, biking. No interest in Baden Baden although people say it's beautiful. Am I missing something?

Thanks so much for your advice!
