Berlin plus Dresden Saxon or Munich Bavaria?

Jump to last reply

I am planning a holiday for 2 weeks next august flying to and from Berlin with my husband and 3 sons aged 14, 17 and 21. This is our first visit to Germany and Berlin seemed like a city we could easily base ourselves for a week with lots of sights, activities and day trip potential. My sons are interested in science and technology I have seen a few activities around crystal maze type challenge which will definitely appeal. We are also quite interested in the history of Berlin and WWII. I like hiking although it can't be too strenuous with the family and steam train / boat trips will also appeal. So my question for you is any suggestions for a second base(s) for a week? Saxony Switzerland has been suggested and we could stay somewhere in the region perhaps in Dresden but I have also thought Bavaria may be staying in and around Munich. I am a bit hesitant about 2 weeks around cities as any previous city breaks have been very active. However I am open to any suggestions but my preference would be public transport as I am not keen on driving.

I would appreciate any advice which would help us to narrow our options.

thanks in advance for any help
