Can we do 3 to 4 countries in 15 days? Round trip out of Zurich.

Jump to last reply

We are planning on taking a trip to Europe in May 2016 for 15 days (2 of those are flying days). We fly in and out of Zurich. Tickets are already purchased as I used my miles and needed to book early. My husband has never been to Europe. I have never been to this area but have travelled to Europe many times. We are renting a car and driving. My thought is to start in Munich then up the Rhine into Amsterdam then back down through France.
Tentatively this was by itinerary:
3 - 4 days Munich (possible day trip to Innsbruck/Salzburg)
1 day Rothenburg ob der Tauber
Drive up the Rhine
1 day Heidelburg
1 day Dusseldorf
3 days Amsterdam
1 day Brussels
1 day Colmar France
1 day Zurich
Is this too much travelling? (driving) I know from past visits to Ireland, England and other countries that you could easily spend 2 weeks in 1 town and still not see it all. However, my husband is adamant that he will probably never go to Europe again and this may be a one and only time. And it may be a long time before I can get back as we have saved for a long time for this trip. So really trying to see as much as possible. I think I kept all of our legs under 2.5 hours so as to not exhaust ourselves and gives us time to wander around before and after getting to each destination.
Please help with any suggestions on itinerary and/or suggestions.
Thank you
JCBD
