Two couples will be traveling with Avalon from Basel to Amsterdam. We are planning to arrive in Europe a few days before we begin our cruise.
The big question is: where should we spend our few days? I want to spend at least one night in Basel prior to boarding our barge.
Two of the four have been to Europe. We are thinking of spending a couple days in Munich but someone has mentioned the Black Forest. The more I read Northern France also appears interesting. We like learning the culture, pubs, and history. We are traveling in September and one person would like to see an Oktoberfest or similar event.
We will fly into a city, then probably use trains/public transportation.
Thank you in advance!
