Germany and Switzerland in 14 days... HELP

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone! I am going on a trip probably next year (2014) in September with my DH and both my parents. We are in our early 30's and my parents are in their late 50's early 60's but my mother can't do TONS of walking but is ok to stroll cities at a leisurely pace as long as there are breaks. Question is, we have 26 days of which 2 will be flying, 10 will be in London/ Bath, then we will be taking a hopper flight to either Basel, Geneva, or Zurich and spending the remaining 14 days in the Swiss/German area. We were thinking about doing Lucerne, Lauterbrunnen, Colmar, Heidelburg, Rudesheim, and Cochem then flying out of Frankfurt...

Do you think 14 days are enough?
If so, how would you break up the trip? (how many days in each location)
Where would you fly into out of the options mentioned above?
What sites do you suggest seeing?

We are interested in castles ( dont really need to go inside them all though) cute towns, beautiful scenery, a train trip/excursion and good food. My dad really wants to see the black forest too. We plan on driving and we already know about the drop off fees for that. We have already been from fussen, to rothenburg so we don't need to see that area again. I am not sure if I missed anything that might help with answers but I look forward to all the great responses!
