Wow, just came in here to post/ask about Bavaria, and find it’s the latest topic.
I’m thinking about a trip to Europe next year already, and flights from Japan to Europe are easiest/cheapest to Frankfurt, Rome, or London. We’ll have a 6-year-old and two one-year-olds in tow, so I want a trip that steers clear of big city mayhem and public transport and is more scenic, relaxing and fun for the eldest kid too.
I was originally thinking Tuscany and up to Venice, but the more I read about Bavaria I reckon driving from Frankfurt to Munich would be ace. Has anyone done this Romantic Road and castles area and can recommend it? I’m thinking Neuschwanstein, Rothenburg are must sees, but does anyone have fave towns, castles, or palaces in that vicinity?
