My husband & I are traveling to Germany in June. Our son is studying in Frankfurt. Our plans are flying in to Frankfurt. Picking up car and son and heading to Berlin for 3 nights. We have booked an apt in the Mitte area. On Mon, we will send our son back to school by train. Then, we are thinking of heading down to Munich/Bavaria for the week. On Fri, we will head back to Frankfurt to spend the weekend with our son and check out Frankfurt and the area of Hesse. We have booked an apt for 4 nts in the Sachsenhausen section.
My first question is whether it is best to book in Munich for four nights or split it up some how. We do like cities but I am afraid we may miss the flavor of Germany if we are only in cities. We also enjoy hiking, beer, German sausages, architecture,& music.
