Road Trip from Prague to Paris!!

We are in the beginning stages of planning a road trip from Prague to Paris... We are going to be in Prague after being in Munich visiting friends... so we dont want to go through Munich again... We also would like to get to fish hook down and go through Switzerland rather then straight through Germany!!

We would love any suggestions for must see towns, restaurants and sites!!! We would like to be in Paris in 2 to 3 days!!

Thank you ahead of time for your help!!

Hi cstle2

As you already know from the Czech forum a very important one way fee will be to pay if you do not give your rental car back at the same country as you got it. This may cost as much or even more then the normal rental fee.

I recommend you do the trip by train which is more comfortable and less expensive.

For Switzerland look on the Top Questions about Switzerland for many tips. Especialy you should go on www.myswitzerland.com and decide which area you would like to visit. Depending how much time you have available, the greater Lucerne area - see www.luzern.com and Top Questions about Lucerne (TA Lucerne forum) and www.brunnentourismus.ch and Top Questons about Brunnen (TA Brunnen forum) as well as www.zugtourismus.ch and Top Questions about Zug (TA Zug forum) -.

Once you decided which area you would like to visit, you will be wellcome come back with more specific questions.

Hi, it's a good 12 hour drive from Prague to Paris so you have a day and a half of travel already. If you have only 3 possible days to get from Prague to Paris, do you really want to drive 4-5 hours south to spend a few hours in Switzerland - that's another 8 hours or more so there's 3 days of just driving! These times are using primarily autobahns/autoroutes so you don't see much. Personally, I would take my time and find routes that are off the "interstates" and enjoy the small towns in Germany and France along a fairly direct route. You would have the chance and a bit of time to stop in those small restaurants, bakeries, have a picnic in a pretty spot, etc.
