The first 2 1/2 weeks are full of things for us to do. We drop off a friend of mine about 8 days before we leave, at the airport. Then it's just me and three teenagers. I'm trying to book a small apartment in an area where I used to live, near the Mosel River. So, I thought about taking one day to go paddleboat riding on a lake I used to go to; go to the movies at a German theater; drive around looking at different castles we didn't see the first week of the trip.
Maybe go on another volksmarch, provided the first one was ok for the kids. Cologne one day (zoo and cathedral), maybe Europa Park. Any other suggestions? I want to stay in the general area between the Mosel and Rhine Rivers for the most part.
We will have already seen Trier, Burg Eltz, Cochem, Zell, Traben-Trabach, Idar-Oberstein, St. Goar, Bacharach and gone on a Rhine A flame cruise...and a side trip to Dachau and Rothenburg.
Any ideas? I haven't been to this area in 20 years.
