Germany driving itinerary starting questions

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone, I had so much help for my Italy trip, I am back for my Germany trip... Although will end up in Greece at the end of it, but first things first...
Basics: husband and myself, 3 weeks in total, we are in our late 40's (well I am, he's not :) are open to all suggestions, LOVE driving... going to Germany for him to fulfil his 'bucket list' of driving the Nurburgring.
As we're coming a long way, and as we are in the area, I would like to go to Amsterdam and Hamburg to see where my parents lived. All else from there is open to suggestion.
I'm thinking of the following:
Arrive Amsterdam August 22nd/23rd TBC 2 nights
Fly to Hamburg 2 nights
Hire car and drive to Nurburg stay 1 night for the Nurburgring
From there drive the Romantic Road with possibly 3 stops on the way for overnight stays (depending on your recommendations)
flow through and end in Munich for 3 nights. Will do day trips here with one to Garmish and Zugspitze
So my questions are where would you stay on this route? Hotel recommendations (are open to all budgets) , and what's a must see list?
I have seen the driving distances, we are happy to drive and stop where we want.... I know it's quick but I'm trying to get a good look at as much as we can see in approx 10-12 days
We like food, wine, romance, a bit of everything as far as scenery goes and historic tours.
So please fire away and let me know your thoughts and recommendations....
Thanks in advance KC
