We spent almost 2 weeks travelling through Germany. We arrived in Hamburg via train from Sweden/Denmark. We all loved the Beatles tour. My favourite stop in Hamburg was a visit to Elbphilharmonie and the kids enjoyed the Miniature Wunderland.

From there we rented a car and drove south to Cologne to visit a friend. We visited the Lindt Chocolate Museum, the beautiful Cologne Cathedral, stayed a few nights with our friends at their lovely home in the countryside, and a couple nights in a real castle – Schloss Bensberg where I had the chance to dine at my first Michelin Star restaurant –Vendôme .

Next stop was visiting another friend in Saarbruken and the kids opportunity to try the outdoor adventure course – Adventure Park Saar!

Then we headed west with a stop in Nuremberg… including a couple of castle visits and the kids favourite – Playmobil Funpark !

Next stop…. Prague, Czech Republic!
