Please, I need help with the Germany part of our tour.

First, family trip to Europe. Myself, wife, 2 daughters (ages 20 & 23 yrs). --21 days in June --all travel will be by Eurail/train.. Arrive Amsterdam, go directly to Paris for 6 to 7 days. --Paris to Rome (4 to 5 days in Rome with a day trip to Pompi). Venice 2 days? ------Then, from Venice, Italy--through Germany for 4 or 5 days----From Germany to Amsterdam (for 3 days to see Amsterdam and prepare ourselves for flight back to USA). When in Germany, we definitely want to stay in Rothenburg ob der Tauber (1 day/night?). Given the Venice-Rothenburg-Amsterdam train route, Which other German city/cities would you suggest that I consider for a family visit? Any help would be very much appreciated. --Jim.

Paris: 6 days / Rome: 4 days / Venice: 2 days / Germany: 4 days / Amsterdam: 3 days

= 19 days + travel time

You won't have time to see anything else!

My suggestion: Go to Amsterdam, Paris, Germany next year (even then you're going to miss many places that are worth seeing), visit Italy (and Austria?) sometime in the future.

Thanks all for the responses. Alas, "EllyRigby" 21 days is all we have ---and, unfortunately, I don't think there will be a next time. Thanks to "TelePort" & "abalada"--for the specifics --just what I wanted. "Abalada" you put much work into developing that list--thanks. ---Jim.
