Mosel Valley and Black forest itinerary help needed

Jump to last reply

Hello,

I am leaving on vacation with my family in less than 5 days. We are a couple in our mid 30s and our 3 year old boy. Would appreciate help from Fodorites.

I am putting down the details of my trip below. I am a little unsure of the Mosel valley and Blackforest part of the trip. All help appreciated..

26th June - Fly into Brussels and leave for Brugges the same day
26th - 29th June (3 nights) - Brugges (Belgium)

29th June - Leave for Ernst (5 Km from Cochem) - by train (would most likely arrive by late evening)
29 June - 2nd July - 3 nights at Ernst

2rd - 4th July (2 nights) - Plan to spend it in the Black Forest towns

4th - 6th July (2 nights) - Fussen

6th - 9th July (3 nights) - Munich

9th - 12th July (3 nights) - Zell Am See (Austria)

12 July - Leave for Vienna and fly out on 13th July

Now the help that I require:

We were initially thinking of taking the romantic road, but after reading reports of the black forest, decided to take this route.
I am looking for good scenery with an option to stop at small quaint towns. I would like to visit the Cockoo clock factory, the waterfalls and maybe take short hikes / walks (here we might be a little constrained because of our little boy).

We are looking at a 2 night stop, on our way from Cochem to Fussen.

1. I would like to avoid large towns like Baden Baden and feel we should stay at either Gengenbach or Schiltach.
Considering the driving distance, would like to take a stop before these places - any suggestions?

2. I read posts on car vs train and am still a little undecided. Do we need a car to move around in the Mosel valley? Would it be more convenient?
Also can the Black forest be enjoyed by train?

Any suggestions / comments are welcome.

Thanks a lot.. Look forward to hearing for you on this..
