Rhine River/Black Forest suggestions

Jump to last reply

Due to time, and wanting to see friends in Bremen and Warsaw prior to a German family reunion, we are trying to maximize "goals" with realities. While quite "American" as far as an itinerary, are we leaving enough time in each area?

4 of 6 in our group are seasoned travelers to foreign countries. The other 2 have never been out of the U.S.

Priorities: family, friends, countryside vs. city (other than Bremen, Berlin, Warsaw)

Other info: plan to do some driving, some train travel

We have 2 weeks including plane rides from US (Rocky Mountain area).

Possible Itinerary:
Sept. 15-16 - fly to Europe
Sept. 16-17 - Bremen
Sept. 17 - overnight train to Warsaw
Sept. 18-19 - Warsaw
Sept. 19 - train to Berlin
Sept. 19-21 - visit fam ily in Berlin
Sept. 21 - afternoon - drive to Dossel
Sept. 21-23 - family reunion
Sept. 23 - leave for Frankfurt area
Sept. 24-27 or 29 - Rhine river tour, black forest, Neuschwanstein -> suggestions for this leg of the trip? Want to see the most scenic section of Rhine and leave time for other parts of southern Germany
Sept. 27 or 29 - fly home, stopover in NYC overnight?

Suggestions? Car rental and train suggestions?

Thanks!
