Germany trip

Jump to last reply

Hello, My wife and I are planning a trip to Europe in September. We will be going September 12- October 2. We have a good idea of where we want to go and what we want to do but, we are having a hard time figuring out how long to stay in each place. So, were are hoping for advice on this and how to travel (train, etc...).

Here is the agenda so far:
-fly into Amsterdam and stay 1 night
-go to Brussels, Belgium and stay 2 nights (visit Bruges while here)
-go to Cologne for 1 or 2 nights, visit Gothic Cathedral
-go to Koblenz and visit castles, etc. (not sure on time)
-go to Trier and visit Roman ruins, Berg Eltz, winery (not sure on time)
-go to Strasbourg (2 nights) and the Black forest region, cuckoo clocks, etc... Visit Baden Baden bath house and Casino from here
-go to Lucerne, Switzerland for 2 nights
-go to Rothenburg and Wurzburg (Romantic Road) (3 nights). Rothenburg: Visit Church of St. Jacob, Night Watchman's Tour, walk on city walls and visit towers and gates, shopping at Marc Platz, Christmas village
-go to Munich and Bavaria (3 nights) and visit Neuschwanstein Castle, the Royal Palace, beer gardens, English gardens, Eagles Nest Tour, foothills of the Alps...
-go to Salzburg, Austria (2 nights): Sound of Music Tour
-go to Vienna, Austria (2 nights) and visit Opera House

We fly home from Austria back to the USA.

We are having a hard time deciding how long to stay at each place. We think we have the proper amount of time for a few (as listed above). We have 20 days I believe. Are we staying too long/ too little in some areas? Can we base at one city and go out to others instead of staying there? Should we do this all by train?

We have never been to any of these countries and have no idea how to map out the times.

I hope that someone will be able to help us with this so that we can feel more at ease.

Thank You!
~Mike
