Western Europe, Paris

Suggestions for 3 week Western Europe honeymoon

If we were to start in Paris and head east, which cities fit best in a 3 week window? Travel by train a plus; mix of high-end and boutique lodging; and cities rich in art and food; Looking from end of September through November.

Last time I went to Paris, I took a train to Lausanne, Switzerland then another train to Rome. Prior to Paris, we flew into Germany and took a train to Amsterdam. Wherever you go, I highly recommend taking trains. It's a great way to see the country.

Very easy to make a loop involving some areas east of Paris like Dijon or Champagné or Strasbourg.  Continue in a loop-ish to Cologne or Cologne, then Munich, Heidelberg, and into the Netherlands-Amsterdam and down into Belgium-Bruges and Brussels.  Head into Lille before returning to Paris.  There are lovely small towns and villages all along the way. Make sure to stop for a night in a few of them to break up the drive!

If you aren't opposed to making your  further south, I'd definitely recommend Biarritz, which is a beautiful seaside retreat.  From there, its not too far from San Sebastian which is not only an amazingly romantic place, but home to some of the world's best restaurants in Arzak and Mugaritz Restaurante, among others.

I enjoy the Champagné region which is only about an hour or less by train. Stops include Reims or Epernay. If possible, perhaps the Burgundy (Bourgogne) region, which is southeast. The train stops at the lovely town of Beaune. Still yet is the region of Alsace, the towns of Strasbourg as well as Colmar are charming and accessible by train.

  7. Strasbourg (city)
  8. Burgundy (attraction)
