It actually helps a lot. That is exactly what I was looking for Ira.

I can move forward to look for places etc based on your suggestions - the routing/towns had me at a loss - there are so many in Germany and it was hard to pick!!

I rent Rick Steves video about Germany and am going to watch it with dd. (we have lots of time on our hands)

Thank you again - appreciate it...

I sent an inquiry to the hotel you stayed at in Fuessen Ira - I saw on your trip report you would stay there again - would you still recommend it?

Hi there MOM ,,

I'm with Ira.
Brugges is not to be missed especially for your daughter ..the main square with the narrow colorful triangle roofs -ringed by restaurants and outdoor tables, and the horse and buggy rides around the square - and the canal boat rides - not to mention tapestries and chocolates -

and by the way there is a church there which has a Michelangelo statue ----

BUT, I think the canal rides and the buggy rides may stop by October - something your daughter would enjoy I would think - I certainly did and Brugges memories stand out so strongly for me - another place I'd love to go back to -

so is there anyway you can fit Brugges in immediately in September for a day ?

Even the 1/2 hour train ride from Zeebrugge was interesting - the colors of the fields are so different than what we have in the U.S.

Anyway - have a great great wonderful trip.

Hi Mah,

Thank you for the feedback. My cousin has told me not to miss Brugges either.Yes, Madonna and child is in one of the churches.

I think that it should be okay in October no? I will check into it. It gets complicated if I go to Brugges at the begining but I will think about how to move it around.

Thanks for the feedback. Very appreciated.

Dawn, re: the places I mentioned in Amsterdam: the theatre is Holllandsche Schouwburg, and the Dutch Resistance Museum is located at gebouw plancins. You might want to walk over to 36 Plantage Kerklaan as well. It's the site of a former registry office where several members of the resistance lost their lives to the Nazis.

Perhaps your daughter would enjoy seeing the Globe Theatre in London. I think it's closed after their season ends in early October, but you could stroll by the theatre, and also visit Southwark Cathedral. The South Bank of London is quite historical. I love walking along the South Bank!

Merseyheart thank you - I think she will enjoy the Old Globe - she did Taming of the Shrew in her acting class.

I will note your other recommendations for AMS as well -

Thank you!

Hi Mom,

>One thing Ira - am I flying from Innsbtuck to AMS?

Yes. That's why I routed yuo the way I did, See www.which budget.com

>I sent an inquiry to the hotel you stayed at in Fuessen Ira - I saw on your trip report you would stay there again - would you still recommend it?

Yes.

It is not far from the train station and the buses to Neuchwanstein/Hohenschwangau

Again: BRUGGE OR BRUGES, NOT BRUGGES

If you keep writing Brugges, I shall refuse to help you any further.

Ira,

My spelling in general is a serious
deficit -- many apologies to have to stumble through my postings. I long for spell check.

I am desperate for your advice I will definately spell Brugge correctly

Any recommendations for lodging in the other areas?
