Travel with kids (6 & 8 yrs) to Germany/Switzerland/Liechtenstein

Jump to last reply

Hi there, we are travelling to Europe this July with our two children to visit family in the Netherlands. While there, we have decided to fly to Crete for a week and then thought of flying to Germany and touring around there a bit.
My challenge is finding a good base location (or two) that will give us maximum benefit for the time spent preferably in the South part of Germany. We should have around 8 or 9 days. We plan to travel by train as well.

My husband and I have been to Interlaken and Lauterbrunnen and thought it would be nice to take the kids there but we also like to experience new places and thought maybe Liechtenstein would be a good idea. Also thought Colmar, France would be a nice side trip along the way back to Holland.

Seeing a castle would be nice but fancier is not always better so open to ideas there. Don't really want to fight the crowds at Neuschwanstein. We would like to find some culturally interesting activities suitable for the kid's ages. We prefer not to stay in the large urban areas if we can help it. Although, it does appear that Munich has a lot to offer if we were to go there.
We are totally open to different ideas/options of where to stay for a few days and manage some day trips without having to drag the kids on the train for 4+ hours every second day.
