Trip Report – June 2017 Switzerland & Germany (coming soon)

The Rheinfall, Switzerland

For the past several summers, Philly and I have made a week-plus trip to Europe with daughter Maria and her longtime friend Erin.  The 2017 edition of our traditional summer trip took us to eastern Switzerland and southern Germany, with a special bonus stop along the way in Chicago for a birthday surprise for Maria.

We had rental cars for most of this trip, and we covered a lot of ground.  Our itinerary included: Our “bonus stop” in Chicago; the magnificent Rheinfall in northern Switzerland; Lucerne; spectacular Mt. Pilatus; Lindau, Germany; Castle Neuschwanstein (Fussen/Hohenschwangau); Munich; Stuttgart; and the Black Forest.
