Last minute trip to Germany, itinerary help much needed!

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone, thanks for taking the time to read my post :)

We're planning a last minute trip to Germany and would appreciate any advice on suggested locations to visit. We are feeling very overwhelmed with such a short amount of time to plan!

We are a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 young children, aged 4 and 1) coming from Australia and arriving in Hamburg on 4th May. We will be visiting family for the first week and then will be travelling by car heading south to Munich, departing Munich for Spain on 31st May.

So, we have roughly 3 weeks to make the trip from Hamburg down to Munich. Our family in Germany has suggested two itineraries to us:

Itinerary One:
Bremen
Cologne
along the river Rhine: Koblent, Lorelei, Rüdesheim, Bingen,
Wiesbaden, Mainz, Mannheim, Speyer, Worms
Heidelberg
Rothenburg
Dinkelsbühl
Nürnberg
Regensburg
Munich

Itinerary Two:
Walsrode / Celle/ Soltau (Lüneburger Heide)
Hannover
Kassel
Fulda
Würzburg
Nürnberg
Regensburg
Munich

The first option seems to be much more interesting, however we're not sure if it would be too much to try and fit in with the amount of time we have, considering we have little ones.

As we will have a car we would prefer to by-pass the big cities if possible and explore the smaller towns and villages along the way. Obviously we will also need to keep the children happy, so things that are fun and of interest to them would be good to know about.

Any information and advice you could give would be much appreciated!
