That sounds a good mix. We've spent a lot of time in Switzerland and enjoyed it. It's school holidays at the moment and we're in Bavaria hiking. Same Alps but less crowded and much cheaper. There's a mountain here called Wank and I am yet to come up with a good answer to "daaaaad, why is it so funny?"
We decided not to visit a concentration camp on this trip, not my idea of fun with young kids and a Jewish wife. We are living in Holland now and a quick bit of research found the names and addresses of the many people deported from our very street and I often ride my bicycle along the train line via which they were transported.
I've seen Rammstein play in Germany, the crowd is almost a better show than the band.
Sounds like an awesome trip. I have tickets to see Neil Young this summer which I'm really looking forward to.
It's good to see you exspouse these thoughts so regularly!

Those things contain some of the best magnets you'll ever get.
Worth opening a few to get them if you don't have any. Some have one, some have two.
To give you an idea of their strength, you can magnetize a screw driver enough to hold screws with a single 'swipe'. Solidly affix things to car trunk (if it's steel and not plastic) without having to do any damage to the vehicle; refrigerator magnets that don't drop anything - every; on a string or stick, use to recover dropped things - even find them when you can't see them as it will pull small things (like pins on the floor) a good distance. Also, two of them snapping together could take a piece of meat out of you if you're not careful.
