Visiting Spangdahlem

Jump to last reply

Hi all, my fiance and I are planning a trip to Europe in mid-March. We'd fly into London, then travel to Paris, then visit a friend stationed at Spangdahlem. Ideally, I'd like to give an equal 3-4 days in each city, but I'm not very familiar with Spangdahlem and its surrounding area.

I'm wondering, first of all, how easy it is to travel to, presumably by train? Second, any suggestions on what to do while we're there would be helpful. We are mid-20s, fairly active, and interested in taking in as much culture/history as we can while we're there. And also eating delicious food... and drinking beer. :) I'm also a sucker for being at vantage points where you can see the entire city and landscape for miles... so any tours (of churches, castles, etc) or hikes of that nature, definitely throw them my way!

On the other hand, I'm not opposed to asking our friend to meet us in a different city nearby. I'll talk to him for suggestions, but would our time be better spent in a bigger city, such as Dusseldorf or Frankfurt? I visited Heidelburg a few years ago and LOVED it. I just want to make good use of our short time there! Strasbourg, Brussels or Luxembourg came to mind as alternatives as well. Thanks much!
