Hey everyone - we (family of 4, kids ages 10 & 15) are returning to Germany / Austria after an amazing 16 day trip 2 years ago. 2 years ago we visited Koln, Bacharach, Rothenburg, Fussen ( Neuschwanstein, Zugspitze), Saltzburg, Vienna & Munich (after spending 3 days with family outside of Dortmund).
To keep this short ( I'll post our itinerary below ) - would you recommend Baden Baden and touring around the Black Forrest or visiting Wurzburg/ Nurnburg/Regensburg?
7/1 - 7/5 Staying with family outside Dortmund
7/6 - 7/7 - Beilstein
7/8 - 7/9 - Bacharach
7/10 - 7/11 - Baden-Baden or ??
7/12 Munich (spend a lot of time here last time, love it, but ..)
7/15 Cesky Krumlov
7/16 - 7/17 Prague
7/18 - Dresden
7/19 - Family farm by Magdeburg
7/20 - 7/23 Berlin
Thoughts? Advice? Changes? Favorite experience nearby any of the above? We've read the RS Germany, Prague books cover to covert and seen all the videos/travel talks but any words of experience would be welcomed!
We live in Oregon and it sounds like the Black Forrest may offer experiences similar to home. Any recommendations on a better route between Bacharach and Saltzburg? (I'm open to dropping one night in Bacharach, having stayed there 2 years ago even though we loved it there)
