Just a short note – you can do your own research, but if you like architecture, and medieval town centres that you cannot find it North America (well perhaps Quebec City), then here’s a list of towns you can easily tour in 2 weeks. If you do a Google search of “most beautiful towns Germany” you will find a consensus that 8 of the 10 are within easy driving distance from either Schiphol or Frankfurt. Then with a bit more research, and a wine route or two thrown in, you might arrive at the following 2-week tour:

  • Aachen
  • Cologne
  • Trier
  • Bacharach
  • Mosel valley (Bernkastel-Kues, Zell, Beilstein, Cochem)
  • Rhein valley (Rudesheim, Sankt Goar)
  • Limburg an der Lahn
  • Marburg
  • Hann. Münden
  • Goslar
  • Quedlinburg
  • Wernigerode
  • Hildesheim
  • Celle
  • Hildesheim
  • Lübeck
  • Amersfoort (Netherlands)
