Hi, I'm visiting Germany, Denmark & Sweden in February and wanted suggestions on any Corded Ware, Bell Beaker, Battle Axe, Bronze Age archaeological sites, museums etc I could visit? Also Stone Age, Neolithic sites please? I'll be near Heidelberg, Koblenz, Bremen, Hamburg, Dresden in Germany. I'll be in Copenhagen and Stockholm too.
Thanks
PS. Also interested in the Germanic migration era such as Vendel, Upsalla, Beowulf etc.

You might try this one, if you can get to it: http://www.zbsa.eu/

It's a little hard to tell what you might find there, but their hearts appear to be in the right place. Prehistory is harder to find than history, including in museums.

Back in the early 1970s, when I was stationed in Germany (Augsburg), I bought a map (book stores) that showed all manner of outdoor sites, including ancient and the like. For example it showed a Keltic burial site, which I drove by. It had large round mounds. Also Augsburg has a Museum with old displays, including from Roman times. I don't recall whether it had prehistoric items.

That little museum seems no longer to exist in Augsburg. But this is obviously a better museum:
