Intnerary Help

My wife and I snagged a flight to Europe using our Frequent Flyer miles on Delta. Here is our itenary as of now, any thoughts and feedback are welcome the only part that is for sure right now is the entry and exit points. We will probably get a German Rail Pass plus extention to Prague

We are in our late 30's, we love food, culture, beer, history, if that helps with suggestions, Thanks as always, such a great forum.

We add this to the Belgian forum to see if we should go this route instead of heading so far east then backtracking, never been to Belgium save a train trip from Paris to Cologne.

10/29 - 11/11 this fall

10/30 - arrive at Franfurt airport in the morning, take the train from the airport to Cochem on the Mosel. We will be in Cochem for two nights

11/1 - take the train to Cologne, realizing that this is a holiday and they will be on Holiday schedules. We will have three nights in Cologne, on Saturday we will take the train up to the Rhur Region for a Football game (hopefully Dortmund - fixtures come out in July???), Sunday 11/3 is our first wedding Anniversary, probably a spa day / nice dinner out - Suggestions?)

11/4 - Train to Nuremburg, one day there.

11/5- DB Bus to Prague (2-3 nights there, the final night we are planning on taking an overnight train to Amsterdam)

11/8 - arriving in morning to Amsterdam for three nights (maybe a day trip to Dutch countryside, with base in Amsterdam.

Any thoughts on this, alternate routes cities, etc. would be helpful.

We have been to Germany before (one of our favorite countries so not much there will change, mainly should we do Prague on this trip or save it for an Easten European trip? We have to leave out of Amsterdam, btw.

Any other places? We were in Paris last year, Berlin, never been to the Mosel, so that will probably make sense for us to start our trip.

1. Re: Intnerary Help

Sorry but this is like asking a question on travel to Mexico and Guatemala in the forum for the USA.

Frankfurt-Cologne-Nuremberg-Prague-Amsterdam doesn't touch on Belgium, nor does any knowledge about Belgium (that you might find in this forum) seem relevant to your question about whether or not to go to Prague.

If, perhaps, you are asking whether to come to Belgium instead of the Czech Republic, that's something only you can decide. But as you have a direct and very conveniently-timed night train from Prague to Amsterdam, I don't see any problem with being "so far east" of your departure airport, especially as you have 3 further nights in the Netherlands to recover from the journey, if needed.

Thanks, and probably true enough, I was just over thinking this. Also, like you were saying, if others thought that was too much seeing if, and I know it does, a few ideas about going into Belgium, since it borders Western Germany, where we will be and would be a shorter trek, to Amsterdam. Thanks for your thoughts.
