First Trip to Europe 2 Adults 50+

Jump to last reply

Our son is stationed in Germany and we have decided to visit. We are planning to stay for 14 days. Our son may get some leave time, but there may be days when my husband and I are on our own. We would like to travel to nearby countries, but don't have any idea how much travel we can do in 14 days. Since it is our first time visiting a European country, we are seeking advice on the following: 1. when is the best time of year to visit Germany/Europe? (prefer good weather and no crowds) 2. Where are the best places to stay that are affordable and can interact with locals? 3. Which is more cost effective to travel within Europe, rental car, train, air? If this may be our only opportunity to visit, what countries/cities would be the best travel destinations from Germany? 4. Any recommendations where to get the best travel research/information?
