This is a great site, really helpful for those (like me) who need advice. Together with my husband and our son (3 years old) are going to visit our relatives in Romania this summer and we decided for a trip by car from Finland (where we live) covering Sweden (Stockholm, Nörrköping, Jönkoping, Malmö), Denmark (Copenhagen), Germany (Hamburg, Hannover, Kassel, Nurnberg, Linz), Austria (Wien), Hungary (Budapest) and then Romania. We can’t be on the road more than 5 or 6 days because my son will become restless but we are willing to step off the highways to see some historical sites or anything worth to visit if we don't need to make a big detour from the planned road. The problem is I don’t know what to visit! Can anyone give us some tips? Or in the towns I’ve mentioned, if there’s anything ‘nice’ to see…
this gona be a nice trip.
when heading for nuremberg, you should visit our castle here and the old town. it is just nice to walk around and explore the city by foot...
If you are on a budget you can even sleep in the castle as there´s a youth hostel in it..
I think the cities you have chosen in germany make up a good choice.
An alternative would be to explore the east of germany, starting from berlin (which is a must!!) heading down to the south. on the way you can visit for example dresden.
if you have further Q´s , tell me .
Looks like a very ambitious travel plan - probably too ambitious to really see anything, since it is quite a driving distance you need to cover. But if you want to take this route and have limited time I suggest that you type the names of the cities you want to visit into a search engine (like google: www.google com) + sights or lonely planet (for a concise information) and find out what's the most exciting for you. I guess your son might enjoy Tivoli in Copenhagen, you might enjoy seeing royal palaces (in Stockholm, Copenhagen, Vienna), Budapest), old towns in those and other cities (Linz, Nurnberg), may be some od the nature's beauty. It is too long a trip with too many magnificent places to vist to give you detailed tips here, so you need to do some reasearch yourself.
Enjoy your trip!
