Base Cities?

Jump to last reply

We are planning an autumn trip next year to Germany for 10 days (travel days not included). We were thinking of using Stuttgart and Düsseldorf as bases.

We will have (and want) a car.

For Stuttgart we are thinking of a day trip to Triberg and Gengenbach. A drive over to the Swabian Alb another, and exploring Stuttgart itself. If we go during the volkfest we will spend time there, and might go over to the place where the pumpkin festival is.

For Düsseldorf we were thinking of a day trip down to Cologne and maybe Trier. Another to ride down to Bingen, park the car, take a cruise up to Boppard, train back to the car, and some type of scenic drive back to the city.

Question is, should we spend five days in each, or spend four in each and go to another town for the remaining days. If so, where? We aren't ones that enjoy cycling, hiking, etc. and touring castles aren't that enjoyable. With that said, a few nights in the BF or the Rhine don't make much sense.

We loved Bavaria (we have been to Munich, and some small towns on the Romantic Road), so maybe hit a town in Bavaria we haven't been to?
