I am traveling to Germany/Austria at the end of June. My plan is to go either to the Rhine Valley and take a cruise up the Rhine and a train ride back down by the river. Or I will travel to Lake Constance and see the lake and go to the island of flowers. Which would the experienced travelers in Germany suggest would be better? Other parts of my trip will include a four day stay in Munich a three-day stay in Salzburg, a three-day stay in Vienna as well as the stay in Berlin.
If I were to do the Rhine Valley, I will be coming from Berlin and want to travel 1 way on the river by the k_d boats and the other way by train. I was thinking of traveling from Berlin to Mainz and then taking the boat or train north to somewhere around St Gore or Koblenz and then coming back to Mainz. Does this sound doable? And does anyone know where I can buy the train ticket? Cant find it on the dbahn site.
If I do lake constance I will travel from berlin to meersburg and stay on the lake. Getting a ferry out to the islands seems pretty straightforward.
Sorry for all the questions, but i really appreciate the help. Kelly
