A question about driving/staying in the Fussen/Garmisch area...

Jump to last reply

We'll be driving from Rothenburg and staying for two nights before heading to Berchtsgaden. On recommendations from this Forum I was going to base in Garmisch (at Gasthof Fraundorfer)
but am now having second thoughts at staying there both nights. We want to get to Neuschwanstein first
thing in the morning after our lst night (figure there will be less crowds at that time)...I see it's about an hours drive. Instead of back-tracking would it be better to stay in the Fussen area for the 1st night, I don't mind the packing and unpacking. We also want to see Wierschke, Ettal, Mittenwald,
possibly Linderoff & Oberammergau if time permits. Would it also be worth stopping in Ulm on the drive down to see the cathedral? I have no idea how to plan this 1st day..if we leave
Rothenburg by 9 am how much can we expect to be able to do, assuming we don't stop on the way? This trip was conceived 3 yrs ago for when my youngest is off to college in the Fall. I can hardly believe it's time to get down to serious planning! I know I'll have many questions before this is all said and down. If anyone has any itinerary recommendations I would love to hear it.
And I just have to add "I love this forum"!!! :-)
