Critique this itinerary, please

Jump to last reply

Hi. We're planning an 18-day trip to Europe in 2012 with two 13-year-old girls (and all the drama that comes with that). I'm looking for critique of our itinerary from others who have survived this.

Here's what we are NOT interested in:

~ museums, unless they are mind-blowing (we've burned them out on museums in the U.S.). They've been to most science museums throughout the U.S. and many of the Smithsonian museums in Washington, D.C.

~ churches. We might take them in a couple cathedrals just for the architectural value, but the spirituality will not impress them at all. Guaranteed.

~ Dachau. I've been to Germany twice and was not up to it either time (once as a teen, once as an adult). I cannot imagine them being up for it, however culturally important it is. They were deeply disturbed by the Holocaust Museum in D.C.

OK, here we go. :-)

1. arrive in Berlin a.m.
2. Berlin (die Mauer)
3. Berlin
4. a.m. train to Fulda/Rhoen district (hiking, towns, relaxing)
5. Rhoen district
6. Rhoen district
7. a.m. train to Luxembourg (we have friends there)
8. Luxembourg
9. a.m. train to Haguenau, France (our family's home some 100 years ago)
10. Haguenau
11. Haguenau
12. a.m. train to Hohenschwangau (Neuschwanstein)
13. Hohenschwangau
14. a.m. train to Salzburg ('nuff said, it's Salzburg!)
15. Salzburg
16. a.m. train to Vienna
17. Vienna (Spanische Hofreitschule)
18. p.m. depart from Vienna

Does this seem like too much? Are we crazy for trying to cram this much into 18 days? Thoughts, suggestions and criticism are welcome. Thank you!
