Trip for 3-generation family

Jump to last reply

Hi, in the very preliminary stages of planning a 2 week trip to Europe for summer 2012 for my mother, husband, and (will be) 15 year old daughter and myself, and just looking for a bit of advice.

As I really want to visit Bavaria, we're looking at flying into Munich and basing ourselves there for several days as we explore the city and outlying areas. I see that Germany seems to offer a wealth of apartment rentals and wondered if anyone could recommend a company to go with. We definitely want to have at least 2 bedrooms, but 3 would be nice, and would like to be close to mass transport as we will be using the subway and rail to get around (and are looking for prices of 150 euro or less per night). I had considered using some of our Marriott or Hilton points, but I really think it would nice to stay in something a bit more 'authentic'....unfortunately, there are few bed and breakfasts that are in the city, and outside the city, we'd be limited with transportation to get out to see the sites.

We're also considering going to Salzburg and spending 3 or 4 days there in a similar situation. As my daughter plays viola, we want to be part of Mozart's hometown, and possibly also visit Mauthausen while there.

Finally, we're looking at transiting to Prague for another several days of sightseeing before flying back to the US.

So, in addition to the question regarding apartment rentals, does this itinerary sound 'doable'? We would be using rail to get us from city to city, and I've heard that I can get some decent rates that would be better than renting a car.

Thanks in advance!
