Germany's Christmas Markets

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a short 10 day trip (8 nights -2 days of travel) for my wife and I in Germany to visit some of the Christmas markets. After reading information and reviews for many days I have a game plan and a few questions and appreciate comments and sugguestions.

I'm not a big siteseer and would much rather visit the less traveled or crowded markets. From what I've read I think I would like medieval and old style markets. I also would like to see a couple of the older castles, maybe the hot springs, and the medieval crime museam. We both love Christmas and everything that comes with it. The trees, orniments, decorations and maybe a little snow.

We will be most likely flying into Frankfort. I would like to see the markets in Strasbourg, Rothenburg ob der Tauber and Weisbraden. Several friends told me we needed to go to Munich also. With that in mind I came up with this plan. We land in Frankfort and take a train right to Strasbourg. Spend 2 days in Strasbourg, 2 in Munich, 2 in Rothenburg, and 2 in Weisbraden.

Here are my question ?
1. Is this realistic for 8 days or do I need to cut 1 stop out ?
2. Can we get to each destination by train only.
3. Would I be using the same train so I could buy a weekly pass if they have one ?

Thank you for any info you can provide,

Bob
