Germany Itinerary Help

Jump to last reply

We need your help in finalizing an itinerary for September to Germany. We will be flying into and out of Frankfurt (using FF miles). We will have 14 days and need your opinion on these options as well as other suggestions. [We decided to skip Munich since we will be there during Octoberfest and do not want to pay the prices for hotels during that period.]

We really want to see the Rhine & Mosel valleys as well as Rothenburg and the Ludwig castles. We usually rent a car and stay local in an apartment to see an area in depth but realize we need to move around more to see the sites that are on our list. Do these itineraries look feasible or should we skip Fussen and concentrate on the Rhine/Mosel valley? We are also debating between car/train and tend to lean towards having a car to get around as it's easier with luggage.

We sure appreciate any help fellow Fodorites can offer:

Option 1:
Day 1: Leave US
Day 2-3: Arrive FRA and drive to Rhine Valley (Bacharach, Boppard, Rudesheim).
Day 4-6: Drive to Cochem for 3 nights
Day 7: Drive Cochem to Heidelberg
Day 8: Drive to Rothenburg for 2 nights
Day 9: Day trip from Rothenburg to Nuremberg
Day 10: Rothenburg to Fussen (stop at Dinkelsbuhl, Nordingen)
Day 11: Ludwig Castles and area
Day 12: Day trip to Mittenwald
Day 13: Train from Fussen to Frankfurt
Day 14: Fly to US

Option 2:
Day 1: Leave US
Day 2: Arrive FRA and drive/train to Wurzburg
Day 3: Wurzburg to Rothenburg
Day 4: Day trip from Rothenburg to Nuremberg
Day 5: Rothenberg to Fussen (stop at Dinkelsbuhl, Nordingen)
Day 6: Fussen : Ludwig castles
Day 7: Fussen to Heidelberg
Day 8: Heidelberg to Cochem
Day 9-10: Cochem
Day 11: Cochem to Bacharach
Day 12: Rhine Valley
Day 13: Bacharach to Frankfurt
Day 14: Fly home
