Suggestions for our trip to SW Germany and the Alsace ???

Jump to last reply

My wife, a cousin, and I are planning a trip to SW Germany in September. After our enquiry to Fodors a couple of months ago we winnowed our plans, as follows. Comments? Suggestions? Things near our itinerary we shouldn’t miss?

The 3 of us are in our late 60’s but very fit and spry. Primary intended focuses: see some of the art masterpieces in the region (my cousin is a professional artist and printmaker); experience the regions our ancestors came from (including just a bit of carefully pre-planned research), catch a bit of music on the way, and seeing things we shouldn’t miss en route.

• Day 1: Fly into Frankfurt and train to Würzburg (Schönes-Wochenende-Ticket)
• Würzburg: 2 nights, 1 ½ days (highlights: The Residenz and the Marienberg Fortress, especially works of Tieoplo, Tilman)
• Train to Munich (Länder Ticket).
• Munich: 3 - 4 nights, 2 ½ - 3 ½ days (highlights: Alte Pinakothek, Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, amongst many others)
• Drive 2 days via Ottobeuren and Zweifalten (highlights: Baroque churches) to Egenhausen in Baden-Wüttemberg.
• Egenhausen and nearby Black Forest: 2 nights, 1 ½ days (highlight: the town where some of Ginny’s ancestors were from)
• Drive 1 day through Black Forest to Konstanz.
• Konstanz: 1 night, ½ day
• Train to Zurich
• Zurich: 2 nights, 1 ½ days (highlights: Grossmünster where some of my ancestors were pastors and theologians shortly after Zwingli, see Chagall windows, stay someplace on the lake)
• Train to Colmar
• Colmar: 2 nights, 1 ½ day (highlights:
• Train to Strasbourg
• Strasbourg: 2 nights, 1 ½ days
Question: Instead of staying in both Colmar and Strasbourg is there a small village between the 2 that we could reach by train and takes daytrips into Colmar and Strasbourg? If that alternative, then 3 nights, 2 ½days.
• Drive from Kehl (in Germany near Strasbourg to Leistadt (near Bad Durheim, Pfalz)
• Leistadt: 3 nights, 2 ½ days (daytrips to Kaiserlautern, Speyer, and Worms, highlight: see the town where some of my ancestors are from and go to the Institut für pfälzische Geschichte und Volkskunde in Kaiserlautern and the Pfalz Museum in Speyer)
• Drive to Bingen
• Bingen: 3 nights, 4 days (daytrip to Mainz to see the Gutenberg Museum & Chagall’s windows, see Hildegard von Bingen sites, a day cruise on the Rhein
• 1 of us flies home from Frankfurt, 2 of us fly to Dresden.
• Dresden: 3 nights, 2 days (our 2nd multi day trip to Dresden, daytrip to Meissen)
• Erzgebirge and Olbernhau: 4 nights, 3 days (where Ginny’s dad came from)
• Fly home from Dresden to Seattle via Frankfurt (overnight near Frankfurt airport)
