I am 53 and my wife is 52.We are both professionals and only speak english. We like to drink,but rarely stay out late into the night. We have been on a mediterranean cruise in 2011. We are planning our next Europe trip for 2013. It should be ideally 12 days, but could go a bit over. Germany is my main problem,but here is the general plan. London 3 days, Amsterdam 2 days, Germany 5 days, Prague 2 days. I realize that we could spend 3 weeks just in London, but we prefer to see a lot. In Germany we want to see the Black Forest, Neuschwanstein Castle, a concentration camp, and spend some time at a great spa(we are fine with nudity), I want to do some of this by driving.
We mostly want to tour during the day and have relaxing nights.
1. Is this do able?
2. Where should I base myself in Germany? I thought about splitting my time between Baden-Baden and Munich,but then read some things that made me think Baden-Baden would not be what I want. Ideally at night we would like a place with good restaurants, a good place for a drink, and interesting walking areas.
3. Do you need to show a passport every time you cross a border into another country once you are in Europe?
4. What is a great spa in the Area?
