My husband and I are doing a 11 day Germany trip, we land in Munich and intend to spend 5 nights in munich doing various day trips (Salsburg, Nuremberg etc). We plan to leave Munich on May 25 and head to Black Forest.
We then intend to spend 3 nights in Black Forest, 2N/3 D in River valley, and then reach Frankfurt by 30 May to catch a train to Netherlands.
Need advice on what should be our base in BF and River Valley - preferably places which are well connected by trains. Also places which have good hiking options, which do not require a guided tour.
For BF - we are pretty clue less - would like to use the KONUS - but not sure how to determine if a hotel is empanelled or not.
For Rhine Valley - am thinking either Mainz or Bacharach [We want to explore the river boats and hike around the place].
Also, what would be the best way to travel from BF to RV? We are ok to change the duration if that would make more sense.
Any suggestions would be welcome :D
