Since you have three weeks, I would recommend getting down to Bavaria for at least part of the trip.  I will give you a rough itinerary and, at least, that gives some ideas.  We started in Munich and stayed at a hotel next to the English Garden, which was a quiet and fantastic respite from the city and a short walk to the Marienplatz.  They happened to be having a drag show in Marienplatz that night.  It was a lot of fun and very festive.  We roughly took a loop up to Nuremberg, which is very important in World War II history.  While the city had to be mostly rebuilt, it is interesting and only requires a small amount of walking to see some of the important features.  We enjoyed a morning in Wurzburg touring the Würzburg Residence.  While it can be overrun with tourists, we also spent a day and night in Rothenburg and once the day trippers leave, you will appreciate the town much more.  We hopped off and on the Romantic Road, which has some nice villages, but were mainly on it to get to King Ludwig's Castles, Neuschwanstein Castle and Hohenschwangau.  The drive down from Augsburg is beautiful as you slowly work your way into the foothills of the Alps.  We stayed in a wonderful little town at the foot of the Alps called Fussen.  From Fussen the drive up over the Alps to Innsbruck is fascinating, as is the stop to have lunch looking out to the Zugspitze.  You could also drive over to Lindau from Fussen.  Lindau is a beautiful town on Lake Constance which borders Germany, Austria and Switzerland.  From there, we drove up to Stuttgart, which was just an overnight stop as there is not much to see here.  Our idea was to get to Heidelberg, and this one of our favorite stops.     Great outdoor walking areas with shops, restaurants and people watching.  Heidelberg Castle is also very impressive.  We  took an afternoon outing north on the Neckar River and had a fantastic lunch in a quaint little village just north of Heidelberg.  Finally, back to Munich with a lunch stop in Ulm to see the Ulmer Münster, an ominous church.  Our last stop before Munich was a sobering, but very important visit to Dachau.  A hard stop, but a must see to understand a very dark part of history.  Sorry, for the novella. Hope this helps a little bit and safe travels!

I just visited the Rhine River Valley this summer, staying in Rudesheim am Rhein. It was such a cute little town with wineries and great restaurants and music. We drove along the river and stopped to see all of the castles en route to Koblenz and Cologne, which was also gorgeous and worth the visit! We wish we spent more time along the river instead of just two days. Highly recommend trying the Castle Route!

Dresden especially the new town which due to WWII is older than the old town.  Restaurants, bars, clubs as well as museums here.  Bamberg if you like beer, they have 7 breweries withing walking (drinking distance) and produce a smoked beer here.  It's a cheap town to stay in too.  Nuremberg for the history, more beer! And of course you have to visit the rally ground to gain a feeling of the power of pre war Germany,  beautiful city.   Check out Deutsche Bahn for their train tickets, you can get some good deals if you pre book.

A must for any traveler going to Dutchland is to visit Heidelberg Castle, Stuttgart & the Neuschwanstein Castle which is where Walt Disney got his idea for Cinderella's Castle.

Munich is a gorgeous town with plenty of history and many hostels to stay at right near the train station.

Hamburg is definitely worth it. A great evolving and vibrant city!

Following the Rhine and around Koblenz towards Sankt Goar with all the little villages will be great. Stunning little places with LOADS of castles & vineyards. I hope you like Ice Wine if you go!

I love Dresden. Great art there with a heavy dose of history.  In terms of closeness to Berlin, this is also relatively easy to get to. 

Munich and the whole of Bavaria is awesome if you can get there! Steins, pork knucles, parks and castles!

The River Rhein Story  esp. Rudesheim am Rhein is so,ething even Germans do sometimes. However, it's a little bit Disneyland because today it's mainly touristic.

another neat please is the venice of the frankenland, Bamberg - should be pretty much cheaper , as well. At least where it comes to food and Drinks. bamberg amd sourinding has a vilage ish character like Ruedesheim. The region is the former center of old Germay. The founder of Levis Jeans came from the region :-)

must see's from my perspective are

Berlin

Munich (very outgoing)

Hamburg 

and for sure Cologne and Dusseldorf  


you can do more or less everything in 20 days, which is plenty time. E.g. Spend inly one day eqch in Hamburg, Vologne, Duesseldorf - take like 3 relaxed days im Bamberg region etc.  

Germany has a well working railroad system with a bunch of possible discounts, discount cards etc. 

if you prebook, taking a plane for the big distances may make aense (Air Berlin, Germanwings)  


cheers,

ralf

I'd definitely visit Hamburg, Berlin and Munich. Depending on the time of year you could also squeeze in some beach time at the coast or on one of the islands (for example Sylt). For smaller towns Heidelberg or Freiburg im Breisgauare great. You sound like a foodie, then it has to be Freiburg. You could also go to the Black Forest from there if you are looking for some peace and quiet.
Have fun!
