Going loopy in Germany for 3 weeks

Jump to last reply

We are planning a trip to France and Germany from New Zealand in September 2015. It's a long way from New Zealand to anywhere else and I hate long layovers in strange airports with a passion so we will fly Emirates to Paris and back home out of Frankfurt. I have the French bit worked to 4/5 days in Paris and the train to Strasbourg for 2 nights. After that it's Germany and I want to see every medieval village and castle I can. DH wants to go to Berlin as his mother was born there.
We are thinking of a 3 week loop around Germany .......Frankfurt - Hamburg (4/5 nights with day trips to Lubeck and Schwerin) - Berlin (4/5 nights) - Dresden or Nuremberg - Munich (4/5 nights) then some Romantic Road villages on the way back to Frankfurt. This will be by train as we are not hiring a car.
I can work out the details later - I would like opinions in a general sense as to whether this is sensible and enjoyable. We are early 50's fit and healthy, like walking and museums, photography and European cars.
