My husband and I are doing some early planning for a trip to take my son and wife to see where he was born. He was born in Nurnburg but we lived in a little town called Hemhofen, near Erlangen. We fly into Munich or Frankfurt and out vice versa... or fly in and out of the same city, which one makes the most sense? We would like to see more than just the towns mentioned.. We would have 7 nights on the ground. We prefer most of the trip by train but realize we have to rent a car for the trip around Erlangen.
When my husband and I travel, we usually enjoy the towns right outside the big cities better than the huge city. Had thought of 2 nights right outside of Munich (or Frankfurt) then on to Nurnburg for 3-4 night and do some day tripping out of there. Then on to our city of departure for last night or 2 in town very near the airport. Thanks for all ideas!
