Need help with ideas for stopover location

Jump to last reply

Our family of five (2 adults and 3 children ages 10-15) are visiting Czech Republic and Hungary next July. This will be our shortest European vacation yet at only 9 nights. I'm struggling with it because I want to see too much :-) I'm really hoping to get a little help making a one day decision. Our plan so far:

Prague - 3nights
Cesky Krumlov - 1 night
private driver from CK to Budapest
Budapest - 5 nights (daytrip to Danube Bend and possibly Balaton Lake area)

My problem is the day driving to Budapest. We can make one or several stops. I'm thinking that besides the drive, we'll have about 5 hours to play with along the way. I had planned Bratislava stop for lunch and explore town. Then I looked a bit further. In an ideal world we would stop at Trebon, Telc, Lednice, Bratislava, and Gyor... but I know that's way too much and we wouldn't have time do it all. Bratislava would be visiting a different country and we could try the potato dumpling dish. Trebon, Telc and/or Lednice would give us a view of less touristy Czech Republic.... Where would you stop along the way? (definitely open to other locations too)

We don't want to stop in Austria. We plan to visit in future for a longer period of time (which is another thing because we could technically visit Bratislava in future I guess when we visit Vienna, Saltzberg, etc in a few years time)

I'd love insight and thoughts. :-)
