What would be a great 2 day layover in Europe with grandparents?

Jump to last reply

I've been trying to find a place to spend 2 days, or more like 1.5, for a layover on my way to Africa. I need a lot of bang for my time. I've been looking at Amsterdam, Berlin, Frankfurt, Paris, Edinburgh, and most recently Prague.

I'm traveling end October.
I am traveling with my grandparents, so it's not like I can grab my bags and run/bike around a city. So, I guess a need somewhere that a tour bus could really show us some nice things without looking like just another big city.

So perhaps fly in somewhere, take a nice ride/train/tour-bus to country-side (castles)? Then the next day a tourbus the whole day ...then fly out that night, or first thing in the morning.

Any ideas would be appreciated. Even if it is "do not try Prague if you can't hike."

Thanks
Zachary
