Germany for 3 weeks

Jump to last reply

I am planning a 3 week trip to Germany May 18 -June 8 2015. I have read several travel blogs, guidebooks, etc. and am now thoroughly confused! Fussgaenger and others are so knowledgeable and helpful. This is what I'm thinking: Fly into Frankfurt and out of Berlin. From Frankfurt, I am stuck as to where to base. We are interested in wine, castles, biking (I've read there are great day trips for biking) It's all so confusing.
Some people say Rhine some say Mosel. How about Koblenz for both? I would prefer train transportation, but think I could get husband to rent a car if that's better. I just don't want to be on a highway the whole time not seeing the towns, villages, etc. So, how do you get to the castles? Do the day trips on the barges stop? On/Off kind of thing?
Next stop would be Munich, for day trips - 3 or 4 days. Or somewhere else? I don't care about the big cities, although I'm sure Munich has some interesting sights. What do you think?
Then, train to Berlin. Should we stop in Leipzig? Somewhere else? I realize we need at least 3 days in Berlin.
Thanks so much. I have read as much as I can, but need something concrete from those who know!
