I am traveling to several places this summer over 5 weeks with my husband and 3 children (ages 5 1/2, 4, and 18 months at time of travel). We will be staying with family in Sweden for almost 2 weeks before spending 5 days in Paris. Then to see a few cousins stationed in Germany (near Kaiserslautern). Then we will wander over to germany and environs. Probably see some of Switzerland and Austria just across the border (a few days each) then fly home from Munich via London for 4 days... (I am totally loco, I know).
I'd love any tips or "must see" places you may have experienced in these areas. Suggestions for affordable family friendly places to stay would be excellent as well.
We plan on a lot of children centered museums, outdoor experiences and parks. Mainly decided if we are going to mess with their time zones this big and spend the cash to fly there, we may as well make it worth my time! I am also wondering if a double jogging stroller would be ridiculous to lug around the places I mentioned? My older 2 can keep up on walks, but will tire quickly of so much sightseeing. All 3 can fit into it and if they are sitting they will be more "contained" in congested areas. I own a Bob Revolution Dualie (suspension, big tires and very sturdy for bumpy roads and paths) that folds up pretty easily for getting on a train, etc. (about the size of a large suitcase, a little wider) Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
