European Tour suggestions/advice please - summer '09
We (the wife and I + 4 children (8,7,3.5,1.5) are toying with doing a mini European tour in the summer over about a 3-4 week period.
At the moment the rough game plan is to get across into Germany, possibly Austria, then Switzerland and back up through France, although we may try to venture a bit futher afield to Prague and Vienna.
One of the main motivations is to see where my family came from in Germany (Frankfurt region) and also to get up into the alps.
So, the main questions are...
What is the camping like in these countries?
What is the off roading like - are there any classic tracks through beautiful scenery that shouldn't be missed? Anything that we can do off tarmac would be a great bonus.
We will be travelling in a trusty Land Cruiser with most likely an off road camping trailer, which will probably be a bit of overkill for the trip, but will be used a lot for future trips so will be great to give it a good run.
So any suggestions/advice would be appreciated :-)
