@Jeanne: Autumn in Central Europe is golden - yellow and brown colours dominate with some occasional reds. I did a hiking tour yesterday and the colours were wonderful. We (this is the Black Forest area speaking) have had a wonderful Golden October so far with temperatures still around 20C (what's that in F?), but according to the weather forecast the weather will turn colder and rainier tonight. If we really get the first frost this weekend even those trees that are still green will change colour.

Well, not it upper Bavaria, where you will find largely pine trees. (That's in CE too ) And even Black Forest is nothing compared to say Colorado.

Look forward to seeing it. It sounds beautiful, even if some is not all natural and some is man made. I think from the pictures I have seen it looks like you just stepped out of a Hanzel and Grettle(sp) fairytale. My Mother was born and raised in Fussen and I am going back to her home town to see where she lived until her 20's when she came to Hawaii. I will meet her brother's and all of my cousins (for the first time ever) It will all be so magical.

Our first trip to Germany was in March, it was cold and snowy and we loved it coming from Southern Cal. 2nd trip was in Oct to the Black Forest and you're right it was magical.

Larryincolorado, IMHO you didn't miss much by skipping Bamberg. We were there last month (3rd trip to Germany) and it was a gritty, dirty city. Literally. I washed my hands when we first arrived and about an 1 1/2 later when we stopped for lunch I washed them again and the water ran black. I didn't even touch anything. Yuck. It was one of those, "can we go now?" moments. Fortunately, I had no argument from the DH.

Snow over the weekend and on Monday. If you have a rental car, don't forget that you need snow tyres to be legally entitled to drive on snowy/sleety roads. Your rental company most likely won't tell you this.
