Newby Family in Europe

Jump to last reply

Our family of four (2 adults, a 16 year old and a 6 year old) will be travelling in Europe next July & August 2013 for 5 weeks. We wish to experience Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary, Switzerland, Germany, Luxembourg and France. We would like to see the main sights in each place at a comfortable pace and will be travelling via Eurail passes.

Is 5 weeks enough time for this itinerary, especially with a 6 year old?

Also, it is so confusing to book hotels that allow 4 people in one room. Is there a company or resource that can help in this area? Maybe we should choose one chain of hotels across all these countries that allows a family of four to share one room and that perhaps has a kitchenette?

I think hotels/inns are the way to go with families ... unless there is something else that is cost effective for a party of four?

Thank you in advance for your help:)

Diane
