Looking for suggestions from forum members to assist with recommending 3 to 4 base locations for our self drive intinerary. We'll be flying in and out of Frankfurt in September 2019. Plan on spending our time in Southern Rhineland, The Black Forest and Bavaria. Finding a good base(s) in these regions would be ideal. Not closed to stopping at one or 2 overnights towns. Prefer smaller towns to larger cities. I'm reading all the tourist books for their suggestions on "must sees" but would love your suggestions as well. Currently, I'm planning on Heidelburg, Baden-Baden, Frieburg, Fussen, Munich, Rotheburg - itinerary not set in stone.
We're comfortable driving several hours a day to get from our base location, but also looking for towns that would provide us with some nice site seeing on "down" days.
Thank you in advance....
