Family trip in April (mum, dad, 12 and 10 year old).
Travelling from UK to Amsterdam. 2 nights in the city then by train to Germany.
Thinking about train Amsterdam to Bacharach for 2 nights in castle youth hostel. Hoping we could do a bit of exploring on foot and by boat /train of Rhine gorge from there.
Then by train to Freiburg to spend a week in self catering accomodation. Hoping to enjoy life in the town, do some day trips. Would Europa Park be worth a visit?
From there back to UK. Not sure of best route - back through Germany to Amsterdam and ferry to UK or train to Paris and then Eurostar to UK. Would prefer not to retrace same journey so thinking through France. Any suggestions for somewhere on route to Paris where we could break journey?
Any comments / suggestions gratefully appreciated.
