    We have 2 weeks to kill end of September, will be driving out to Ascherleben in Saxony Anhalt , and then need to be in central Belgium 2 weeks later. Other than that , I have no idea where to go or what to do , but looking for suggestions, places folk may have been , etc to try and piece together a plan, even if just moving from place to place to do nowt..

    Recommendations for good sites , for an 8M A class , preferably with spa etc would be helpful. Not shoppers, but like to be nosy and look round places, will have push bikes with us , but anything remotely hilly will have us both blowing out of our arses ... Ideally staying clear of big places, I have done Berlin, Frankfurt and Leipzig to death, smaller cities may be interesting (Karlsruhe was nice ) .

    Thanks in advance

    Yeah, its nice, we did a few days there last year , but have spent very little time further over , will be doing maybe 3 days there in the second week, as im hoping to get a shot around the Nurburgring as well,if everything else goes ok.

    Romantic Road from Wurzburg south to Fussen - lots of nice old walled towns, rivers, swimming pools, cycling opportunities and Cable cars at Fussen and Newschwanstein castle built by King Ludwig as copied by Disney.

    If you're off to the Nurburgring I'd thoroughly recommend you get a taxi ride <TAXI>. I took my two lads on it a couple of years back and it was absolutely superb.

    We have done Belgium to death, usually spend a week there at some point during the season, great place, some nice sites, but as we have to be in Frankfurt on the Thursday of the last week, I don't want to have to double back on myself.

    good links though , thanks
