We are confirmed to fly in (1/22/15) and out (2/5) of Frankfurt and are beginning to develop a 2 week itinerary: we plan way ahead. We have been to Germany before in the winter: Christmas Market cruise (2004) on the Danube. From that experience we know that the weather can be quite cold and rainy, but we prefer off season when crowds are gone and the pace is slower. We are seasoned travelers used to riding European trains and buses and do not plan to rent a car. We are looking for a relaxed pace trip that will give us an opportunity to experience an area of the country with a mix of larger and smaller cities. At this point we are considering the following:
- Nurnberg Return to Frankfurt.
Thoughts about this proposed itinerary and suggestions about things not to be missed, places to stay that would be in locations close to transportation will be appreciated as will thoughts about getting a Germany rail pass versus using point-to-point tickets.
