Vacationing by car from Gothenburg to Germany and back

Jump to last reply

I have a read a number of useful tips here, so want to try to get some more... We are going to Gothenburg in July to pick up our new Volvo, and am working on finalizing a trip. Current plan start in Gothenburg (fixed), with a couple of day moving down the west coast to Helsingborg (or venturing off the coast, e.g. to Vajxo? if someone suggest something great to see?), then taking a ferry to Denmark, exploring Copenhagen for 3 days, and then taking a ferry to Rostock, Germany ( where we need to spend a day or two to connect with family). From there I thought of either taking an overnight ferry from Kiel back to Gothenburg and spending 2 remaining days in its vicinity ( any advice?) or we can take a ferry to Malmo, and drive up from there, to return the car to Gothenburg 2 days later.

Mainly, I'd like to find out if it would make sense to spend more time in Helsingborg vicinity, or half- a day is plenty? versus driving toward the lakes in the middle of the country and staying there for a night or two? Do not want to jump around too much, but also want to see the country some, not just big cities... I would take it any input and suggestions gratefully.
