Rhine River or Romantic Road?

Jump to last reply

I'm in the *very* early stages of planning a Germany trip for next year, and would appreciate any comments or suggestions to help me decide between visiting Rhine River towns or Romantic road towns.

It will be in the fall, we will probably tour the towns by car. I have been to Germany before, but only the very southern area (as an off-shoot of a Switzerland/Austria trip). I hate to admit it, but I do like "touristy" things to do (visiting castles, museums, etc.). I also like to take scenic walks, and while I'm not a true hiker, I don't have any mobility problems so slightly strenuous activity is fine (biking/hiking).

I'm leaning toward the Rhine River area myself, but my husband thinks it might be a little monotonous, and thinks the Romantic Road is a better option because we could combine it with a visit to the alpine areas in the South (either start or end there). He hasn't been there before, and while I've visited So. Germany before, I'm not adverse to going again, because it's so beautiful.

What do other Fodorites think about Rhine river .v Romantic Road -- which one would offer me the best combination of scenery and activities? I appreciate all suggestions, even if they are criticisms. Thank you in advance.
