Germany Travel Questions

Jump to last reply

While visiting London, I am thinking of going to Germany also. If my research is correct, Brussels would be the stop and then on to Frankfurt. I would like to know what the best way is to get to the following areas, if they are accessible to one another:
The Black Forest (I'd like to see as much of this as possible and am not sure how to navigate around the area or exactly how large it is)
I don't think I would want to cross over into Switzerland.
The Romantic Road (is the whole road worth seeing and what is the best way to view it if you do not have a rental car?)
Neuschwanstein Castle
Trier
Brandenburg Gate
Dresden (may be out of the way, not sure)

Any other suggestions would be welcome. I love castles, landscapes, history, some museums etc... I don't want to waste money on tours if I don't have to but I am not sure if I can navigate around these areas. I am not looking for wineries or anything of that nature.

I have seen tours advertised on the romantic road but they are not clear if they take you there and back. It actually would be easier if they didn't take us back because we could continue traveling in that area, I am not sure what to do with luggage if I can bring it on these types of tours. Renting a car could be tricky as we never drove on the other side of the road.

I am not sure how many days I would stay here but I am trying to get an idea of how many days I would need to see the things I mentioned, or what could be cut out for a realistic itinerary. I don't mind traveling from place to place every few days as long as it is in reasonable distance.
