I will be leaving Rothenburg on a Wed and have until Friday when I fly out of Frankfurt. I'd like to stay at the same home base on Wed. and Thursday somewhere conveniently located for exploring around the Rhine towns (we will not have a car). It would be helpful to be convenient for a Friday morning departure to Frankfurt airport for a 10:30 AM flight.
Accommodations recommendation along the Rhine?
Best place for home base?
I think I have a handle on the castles via other posts and Rick Steves' recommendations but if anyone has "must sees" along the route or in the Rhine for a mom and two tween/teenagers, that'd be welcome too.
We enjoy charm over modern accommodations and budget minded choices are certainly a consideration too.
Thanks so much!
