a few months ago and have since narrowed down our options. Need help deciding please!

Here's what's definite so far - we are going to Paris in November for at least 4-5 days, where we will stay at the Westin Paris. We can spend about 9 days total in Europe.
I can't decide which of the following we should do after that:
- Travel elsewhere in France for a few days (Loire?)
- Take the train to Munich for a few days and fly home from Munich (or Munich first, then Paris)
- Stay in Paris the whole time
Some background - my wife and I are 35-40 years old, enjoy cities, nice hotels, good food, taking photos, exploring etc. I was in Paris once for half a day, my wife has never been there. Neither of us have ever been to Munich. We are Jewish so we are both interested in the concentration camps (if we go to Munich). We tend to like places that are not overly touristy (I was turned off by Siena, Italy, for example, because it seemed to be a city that operated solely for tourists. We loved Bologna because it was more of a real city for real people, not just American tourists.) We are not really interested in bed and breakfasts, guest houses, etc.
