Amsterdam -> Rhine River Valley -> Bavaria -> Munich

Jump to last reply

My wife and I, and another couple, will be flying into Amsterdam in August 2015. We will have a total of nine nights on the ground in Europe. We'd like to spend 2/3 nights in Amsterdam, then move onward through the Rhine River valley and into Bavaria before spending the last two nights in Munich.

So, I that gives us 4/5 nights to make the "move" from Amsterdam to Munich.

We haven't decided on a rental car or using trains yet, and could go either way. My first thought was to train to Cologne from Amsterdam, rent a car, and move onward to spend the night in the St Goar/Boppard area on the Rhine. Could be a 1/2 night stopover depending on if we spend the extra night in Amsterdam or not. Then onward the next day to Fussen or somewhere close by to spend the next three nights exploring the Bavarian countryside. From there, onto Munich to drop the car and spend two nights in the city before departing the next morning.

We prefer sights/scenery to museums. We are open to suggestions for doing this by train or public transport as opposed to renting a car. We like to "keep moving" but also to "spend some downtime" too.

I am interested in suggestions or improvements to this itinerary. We could probably do it in reverse if it was better, for some reason, to do it that way.

The suggestions from Fodor's forum members are always golden. I look forward to the replies!
