We will be in the region the first week of November and will be driving from Tübingen to Koblenz. I did not want to drive straight from Tübingen to Bingen which would be the first city on the Rhine that we would be visiting, so I found that Neustadt seemed to be a good stop over point for the night. Research on Neustadt and it's hotels introduced me to the Weinstrasse. We will depart Neustadt on Wednesday morning for the Rhine. We will ultimately be ending our Rhine river drive on Friday afternoon as we depart for Brussles at that point.
Here is my dilemma. On Wednesday, do I get on the autobahn and race up to Bingen to start the Rhine river drive that morning? Or, do I leisurely make my way up the Weinstrasse, visiting the villages on that route, arriving on the Rhine as night falls?
I realize that if this is the worst problem I encounter this week, I am a very lucky guy. But any advice would be appreciated.
