Travelling early November - Advice on where to stay and what to see

We are travelling for 5 days in early November from Amsterdam to Munich. We are unsure if we should travel by train or hire a car. We love small country towns, meeting the locals and staying in B&B's. I would love suggestions on places we should stay and  sites not to be missed. Thanks Yvonne

Whether you hire a car or not is entirely up to you. 

Both the Netherlands and Germany have excellent rail services: extensive networks with comfortable, safe, reasonably-priced trains with ample luggage space.

Always use the official country websites in English to find train times, details and fares:

Netherlands International


If I were making this journey by train I would probably break it at Koblenz (confluence of Rhine & Moselle, Rhine boat trips, historical centre, easy daytrip to Bingen am Rhein..train one way, boat back) and at Heidelberg (lovely historical centre, daytrips by train to e.g. Speyer,WurzburgWorms etc).

If travelling by car I'd probably still stop at Koblenz but then take a route via Wurzburg (including a trip to Rothenburg-od-der-Tauber if wanted) and Nuremberg, with daytrips to Regensburg and Bamberg from a Nuremberg base. is imo the best option for European routes, route details, route alternatives and estimated driving times.

But you are spoilt for choice really. This is just one suggestion. :-)
