Hi, I posted in the Copenhagen forum and didn't get any response, so I am trying here. Some other thoughts I had. Rent 2 cars? Does anyone know of a larger van I could rent? Any ideas are appreciated.
Hello. We will be taking a cruise starting and ending in Copenhagen. Do not know the exact dates. There are 7 of us. 1 luggage and 1 carry on each. We want to go to Munich to visit relatives. Half of us have seen Germany and many other countries before - the other half no. We are trying to find options to reach Munich. We would like the least affordable option, but will factor in ease of travel - if that costs more, fine. We have 3 elderly pax. They can walk, but slowly and pull their own luggage. We would like to do some sightseeing on the way to Munich. We looked into 1 way car rentals and it was very expensive drop off charge when getting from Copenhagen. We only know how to drive automatic transmission, so couldn't find a van big enough with that. There is airplanes. And I can look into the trains - haven't researched that yet so don't know about pricing. Are there any other ideas anyone has?
We are very open with our plans for now. For example, we could even take a train to Berlin, and then hire a car/van. Or we could travel through Benelux. We are thinking 2-3 days to reach Munich. Stay Munich at least 2 days. Perhaps do day trips south into the other countries from Munich. Stay in Europe at least a week post cruise. Thanks.
