Taking a family vacation in Germany can cross many things off your travel bucket list. Although, as you are planning your vacation there, you may wonder how you can possibly see everything on your list. Well, first, you can work with a travel advisor like myself, to ensure you itinerary is carefully planned with all the smaller details. Then you can also consider the best ways to travel in Germany for your family. You may prefer to drive to each destination. Or you can fly, take the train, or even take a river cruise to different cities in the country.
Today I am going to share the best ways to travel in Germany with you. The options are the same ones you always have while traveling for family vacations. But as you know, each country has unique scenarios that make one travel option better than all the rest for some families.
Sometimes, driving a car through Germany is one of the best ways to see the country. When you rent a car, you can spend as much time in one destination as you wish. However, you also need to know the rules of the road and make sure you have the proper insurance.
If you do happen to rent a car to travel in Germany during your family vacation, I recommend taking at least one of these scenic drives:
The German Railway System is called Deutsche Bahn. Taking the train in Germany is a reliable way to reach every destination on your itinerary. This is an excellent option if you want to see the country without the hassle of driving at the same time. Plus, you can usually reach your desired destination much faster.
Buses are an inexpensive way to travel in Germany. There are numerous bus routes in Germany, so you can get to many of the places your family wants to see. The downside is you must rely on the bus schedules, which may not coincide with your plans. Add in the fact that the bus ride will take much longer and you will find yourself wasting precious moments of your trip on travel.
Taking a plane is actually one of the worst ways to travel in Germany. This is the most expensive option, which wouldn’t be an issue if the trips weren’t so inconvenient. Most of the flights between German cities actually have layovers in other countries. This mode of travel in Germany is usually the one that takes the longest.
The only time flying would make sense is if you were traveling between hub cities like Berlin, Frankfurt, and Munich.
If you are looking for a laidback option when traveling in Germany, I recommend taking a river cruise. This family friendly way of traveling in Germany is quite popular. You simply board the boat in the beginning and the boat takes you to each city on the itinerary.
You don’t need to worry about transportation or accommodations. Your room is on the boat, and you stay in that same room the entire journey. Your family also won’t need to think about food, because your dining is all included.
There are quite a few river cruises to choose from during a family vacation in Germany. As a travel advisor, I can help you find the one that matches your family’s needs the best.
These are all the best ways to travel in Germany during your family vacation. Do you know which one is best for your family?? Whether your answer was yes or no, we should find a time to chat about your options.
