Make time for the Rhine and Mosel Valleys?

Jump to last reply

My partner and I are planning a fifteen day vacation in Germany next September. I am using points for the air flight so I want to make that purchase soon. We love architecture, museums, churches, nature, all aspects of travel. I want to visit Berlin for 4 days as a stopover to Munich. From the Munich Airport we will pick up a rental for a 8 or 9 day tour of Southern Germany. I definitely want to stay in Fussen for 3 nights to tour the King’s Castles, Weis Church and the Zugspitz summit.

Next we would tour up the Romantic Road to Rothenburg for 2-3 nights including a side trip to Wurzburg and perhaps Bamberg.

Lastly we could drive through Nuremberg for an overnight stay or just drive on to return our car in Munich. Finally we would stay in Munich for 3-4 nights.

Our question; should we work in a tour of the Rhine and Mosel Valleys as part of this trip? I would be open to staying a few nights in this area. It just requires a lot of driving to get up to this area and then the 5 hour drive back to Munich. We don't mind some driving but not hours and hours in the car.
