    Actually if it were me thats the one country on the list I wouldnt miss out! Austria is fantastic especially the lakes east of Salzburg. Black Forest and Bavaria on the way also worth some time. For me I would get through Belgium and Luxembourg as quickly as possible.

    Depends what you like I guess. Mountains and lakes do it for me so Austria would be the highlight on that tour.

    Thats very doable in that time without too much of a rush.
    I’d consider knocking off Poland though, and maybe Netherlands too.
    For me, straight through Belgium & Luxumbourg, few days meandering down the Moselle ( Trier to Cochem say) then fastest route to Austria. I personally wouldn’t bother with Vienna, heading north to Prague instead, there’s a great little campsite in Prague with a good bar, about 20 mins from centre.
    Then north towards Dresden, but venturing into the Saxon Switzerland National Park, which borders Czech and Germany, stunning area, but it will be fairly crowded, still really worth seeing though. Me, I’d stay there till the last moment, rush back on last day and probably miss the ferry

    I now have plenty to think about, maybe a little too much for someone who changes their mind as much as i do, thanks for the input, my new thoughts are I can skip Austria, Jon could fly to Austria for the bike races, fly back and meet back up after. That would cut out a chunk of miles for me and give me a break from him for a few days win win situation.

    We did Venice and back in 3 weeks, (including a couple of days in Schwaz in Austria) which is about the same distance. We went the Belgium, Luxembourg to Germany route. We hung a right to Strasbourg and Colmar, then across Switzerland and Lichtenstein (ok as a lunch stop) then into Austria. If you want to save a bit of money, miss out Switzerland and go via Lake Constance into Austria. We always stop at Gasthaus Sternen in Hard, free if you buy a drink, but we always have a meal with them.
    Don't Spend your money where you're not welcome.
