Going to Germany for 8 days - pls suggest an itinerary

I am planning a trip to Germany in the Spring, can you help me with the best cities to see, etc over 8 days? My husband is a war historian type person and I love history and the outdoors.

Hi,

You will want to post this on the Germany/Europe forum. However, since I spent a summer in Germany while in college, I can highly recommend Heidelberg. It is a beautiful old town, on the Neckar river, which was preserved (not bombed) during WWII. There are some cobblestone streets, a gorgeous old bridge, & a lovely walk (Philosophenweg, or Philosopher's Way), that goes through a pretty woodsy area. For history, you'll probably want to also visit Berlin, and I personally loved Munich. Dachau is a short distance from Munich; sad but an important visit IMHO.

You'll need to post in the Germany forums -

But definitely visit Munich and Berlin, a few days in each city. Munich is quite small, Dachau is a few minutes by train. Also be sure to visit a Mad Ludwig castle.
