I have 5 year old twins and I need to renew their US passports in January or February. Both Frankfurt and Munich are about a 4 to 5 hour drive from where we live. We thought we might make a Friday appointment and stay in a hotel and make a weekend trip out of it. Any recommendations on which city might be fun for little kids in the dead of winter? Or which US embassy is easier to deal with? The travel websites seemed to be geared towards spring and summer travel, but then again maybe in Germany we put on our boots and winter coats and still go to the zoo in January? This our first winter here and we don't really know what one does when it is cold. We spent the first few weeks in November huddled together in front of the radiator peering out the window in disbelief And it is only getting colder! We moved from Los Angeles to a tiny town near the Swiss border so we are excited to visit a big city again, but we have never done winter travel before. Your suggestions would be very much appreciated. Thank you!
