Need help paring down my 3 week intinerary Benelux/Germany!

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are going to Benelux/Germany in Aug/Sept. We are starting in Amsterdam and leaving from Munich which are locked in. Here's my tentative itinerary in the meantime. I think these are all great places to see but I worry we'll spend too much time travelling via train and not taking it slower but I'm having a REALLY hard time cutting out any of these places as they all seem so great! We could rent a car up in the alps region (pick up after Rothenburg in Munich, return it in Munich after the alps or after Salzburg) but otherwise plan to train most of it due to convenience/cost.

What areas should I consider skipping to put more days in other cities on my list? Other recommendations? I'd hate to have days where I have nothing to do because "there's really only one day's worth of sites in Rhine Valley" for instance and feel like we could've made it to see more areas, but it's no fun being rushed all the time and moving from city to city.

The only things locked in are Amsterdam and Munich but I've done a lot of research and really like these towns I've picked in between, I just worry they are too many. We enjoy wine/beer, castles, churches, local food, local culture etc. More into medieval history and towns than WW2. Coming from the US.
