Canals of europe, how long will it take?

Hi. Me and some pals are planning to take my sailboat through Germany and France to the mediterranean this spring/summer.
We're going to enter Germany in Emden and then go by the Rhine and Mosel river to France. In France we'll take the Saonne/Rhone down to the Med.

The problem is, i can't seem to get a straight answer about roughly how long it takes to go this route. I'v heard everything from 2-8 weeks!
We're not planning on staying long anywhere along the way, only staying the night, refueling and stock up on suplies.

Has anyone made this trip and can give me an idea of how long the journey itself takes if you take away all the time spent not moving along?
I't would be greatly appreciated to know so that we can plan if we wan't to stay for a few days anywhere along the way.

The boat goes about 9 knots if you don't run the engine like a bat out of hell.

here's maps of the route.

Thanks! //Dave.
