I found rental cars in Europe an excellent idea, parking can be a bit 
tricky, but the freedom of schedule and location is excellent if you 
have specific destinations in mind that may be off the beaten path. Of 
course I haul along a wheel chair, and traveling with a chair on a train 
is a pain in the rump [frex many train stations in Germany are isolated, 
and have a cross under the tracks, and you have to climb stairs to get 
to the platform - they do have a cute little ramplet for bicycles but a 
person in a chair has to get out and gimp up the steps if possible while 
the chair gets schlepped up separately. Not good if you cant gimp or 
manage steps.]

Can't remember offhand, will you be movement impaired or is your rehab 
going to restore you to pretty much full movement? It can make a 
difference for traveling. Also, fatigue factor ... I know that just 
sitting and driving a car can get me pretty fatigued after a whole day, 
so is sitting on a train/airplane - so definitely slow travel with 
plenty of days stopped and resting will help out.
