I have posted a few times here regarding our trip and have received lots of great guidance.. So we keep revising our ideas based on the generous info received here, thank you! This is our first ever European trip so, in a way, we are flying blind -- but with your help, we are figuring it out.
OK - so after a week-long Danube River bike/boat cruise, we will have 8 days & nights more of vacation left! We need to make a plan and figure out the best places to go. That's what this post is about.
But just to fill you in, prior to these 8 days, we will have been on a river cruise on the Danube. Places we will have visited during the cruise are: Engelhartszell, Aschach, Bratislava, Budapest, Esztergom, Vienna & Wachau. The cruise begins & ends in Passau. (We plan to stay in Passau for 2 nights prior to the cruise. BTW: Any suggestions on where to stay in Passau?)
So! … after the cruise we have 8 days & 8 nights more to go (July 29 - August 5). What to do, what to do??? The only for sure thing we have to do is be on a flight home from Munich at noon on Monday Aug 6th. (Need to stay by the airport the night before and catch shuttle to airport. Any ideas where to stay?)
OK - for the 8 day trip, starting in Passau and ending in Munich: We are open to lots of possibilities: renting a car, taking trains, (or a combination of the two) ...or? Also, we need to make reservations for lodging along the way, so need suggestions/recommendations for that too.
Our first itinerary for these 8 days was way too much. Thankfully, based on previous posts, we know now that we need to revise this. But we need your help. What would YOU do with these 8 days? Where would you go? Where would you stay? Eat? Tours to take? Things like this.
We are so thankful for your help! :)
