My friends & I are renting a car from September 28th - October 1st and are planning to drive from Munich to Nurburg, while seeing other sites along the way. Our final goal is to drive around the Nurburgring (per the request of my husband - it's one of his "must-dos" for our trip).
We're in the process of making our plans of places to stop during our drive. As of now, we're planning on going from Munich to Colmburg (stopping in Fussen & at some castles on the way, spending the night im Colmburg); from Colmberg to the Rhine Valley (I think we'll spend the night in either St. Goar's or Bacharach); and from the Rhine Valley to Nurburg to do the Nurburgring.
After doing the Nurburgring, we were planning on hitting the road to do some sightseeing & stay overnight somewhere between Nurburg & Munich - hoping that wherever we would stay would put us closer to Munich that the 5 hour distance from Nurburg.
I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to a cool place for us to spend that night. We've thrown around the idea of Rothernburg or Nuremburg, but are having a hard time settling on one place. I'd love to hear some input.
There's 4 people in our group - two women & two men, in upper-20s to mid-30s, one of us has been to Germany before, the others haven't, as I said before, we will have a car.
