Originally my daughter was going to do a trip to Europe for three weeks to several countries, touring as part of a high school band. My mom and I also planned a trip at the same time, but just for one week in July, in Germany. We planned to go to one of the concerts but then do out own thing, touring Germany.
The school trip is cancelled now due to the coronavirus. I talked to my daughter and she wants to go with me and her grandmother for the week tour. We can do it (and still even get seats on the plane together).
The whole trip was planned around what me and my mom wanted to do, but I would like for my daughter to have some say. Luckily, my daughter is pretty mellow and an old soul of sorts. For example, when we were in England she really enjoyed walking that gardens at Leed's castle and feeding the ducks. She loved the shops in Bath and wished she could walk around more. She also liked having tea in the afternoon. She wants to do similar things in Germany.
I am trying to think of things to suggest to her. We are staying two days in Rudeshiem, three days in Nuremberg, and finally in Munich for two days. We can change this if need be. The train is how we are getting around, using the towns I mentioned as bases. The hotels I have booked are all refundable if we make a change.
Things my mom and I planned to do (but we could change) include a Rhine River Cruise from Rudeshiem to Koblenz, Rothenburg, Nuremberg (castle), Weltenburg Abby, Dachau, and go to the top of Zugspitze (by train and tram) for a day.
Of these things, Rothenburg caught my daughter's eye the most. Then the abbey (because she wants to hang out on the beach and just "chill out" while my mom and I tour the abbey). She also thinks she might want to go to Burg Eltz (which we could do from Rudeshiem. We planned to go to my daughter's concert in Koblenz, so Burg Eltz could be a good substitution). My daughter also really loves music and concerts. But has a preference for classical music and jazz. She also likes just sitting and drinking coffee while people watching.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
