Pick up car in Stuttgart and depart 6 nights later from Paris!

Jump to last reply

Plans are to pick up a Mercedes in Stuttgart and depart 6 nights later from Paris. In the meantime, would like to take the MB Alpen drive and then head to Normandy area. Love period hotels/B&B with lots of old world charm. Price always factor but charm trumps.

Something like this.......................

Day 1: depart US for Stuttgart, Germany
Day 2: pick up car and do MB factory & museum tours; overnight Stuttgart
Day 3: start MB Alpen Route Package by driving to Neuschwanstein Castle; overnight in Hohenschwangad
Day 4: drive to Lindau and tour; stay Lindau
Day 5: drive to Normandy area
Day 6: tour Normandy and Quimper areas
Day 7: drive to Paris and return car for transport back to US; stay Sheraton Paris Airport Hotel (we like staying here the last night because of SO MUCH convenience).
Day 8: depart France for USA

This may help. This is a last minute trip. We actually are headed to Ireland this May for our European vacation. Know this is a lot of driving but, hey, we will have a new MB CLS. We use AMEX miles for Business Class. Generally we like to stay at any one hotel for at least two nights. We know this is an exception to that rule. Know this is fast and furious but this is the only way I can talk my wife into making the unplanned trip.

Can you make recommendations for Normandy. We have never been in this part of France before. Hotel(s) for the two nights. Two or three MUST sees in this region. One or two must eats here. We have a nice collection of Quimper.

Thanks for sharing expertise.
