Planning a trip to Germany and Austria

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are planning a trip to Germany and Austria this summer to celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary. We both have never been, but have always really wanted to see both Germany and Austria. We took German in high school and my wife has some German heritage in her family. We are planning spend 2-3 weeks there, and are on a moderate budget. This is a trip of a lifetime for us so we don’t want to be overly cheap, but we can’t afford to be very extravagant either. We've done some research to pick the cities to visit and have put together a tentative itinerary. We plan on getting the German Rail Pass to ride the ICE trains between each city. Since we have never been to Europe, we’d appreciate some advice on the itinerary and anything especially worth seeing. Thanks!
