Itinerary Help: Cologne, Black Forest, Munich

Jump to last reply

We have a Eurail Global Pass and want to use it. It's also good for the boats along the Rhine and Mossell Rivers. I initially had myself routed to go from Cologne to Koblenz, down the Rhine, and then the Mosell River to Trier, onward to Constance. One thing, Trier is not the Black Forest, and I really wanted to stay in a small Black Forest town -- which is what I inadvertently thought Trier was.

Ultimately, we want to spend 3-4 nights in Munich, which is our destination on this part of our 34-day Western Europe trip.

So.... recommended route from Cologne? (We get to Cologne from Brussels, and have lodging booked there already). Is Cologne to Koblenz via Rhine River still good? Where from there? Can we take train or boat into the Black Forest or is this where we need to rent a car? Should I scratch Constance and take a more direct route into Munich (previously, we were looking at staying in Constance from Trier).

I'm very appreciative in advance for any help or suggestions. First-timers in Europe trying not to make a mess of things :)

Cheers,

James
