Im driving down to Slovenia and need destinations! Last year I drove round Europe for a couple of weeks and did some really cool places off the beaten track but now Im looking for some more! I dont really want to go to big towns but I would do! Im driving from calais across to Germany through Belgium and Luxemburg then down through Germany to either switzerland or Austria and might hit Italy!! Thanks in advance for any help!!

Thanks for that site its great! Have some rep on me

Would definately recommend the Italian Lakes (if you go that way?) beautiful.

In Belgium, Bruges is a beautiful town, visit Ypres to see the Menin Gate.
In Germany, drive along the Mosel or the Rhine valleys, if you have the time visit Rothenberg ob der Tauber, it's a walled medieaval town, used in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Also, the area around Oberammergau is stunning any time of the year.

Thanks everyone these are some great ideas, Much appreictaed! x x

Forgot to say, down on the German/Austrian border you can find Neuschwanstein Castle (used in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang). The whole surrounding area is the sort of place where you kick yourself for not bringing a picnic with you - it cries out for you to stop & soak up the scenery while having a drink.
