advice needed on german/switzerland route

Jump to last reply

We are a family of 8 traveling by van in late March, early April to Frankfurt, then to Oberwesel and Rothenburg. I have a 2-fold question:
l. Is it better to drive from Rothenburg, through Schauffhausen, to Lucerne area, then to Garmisch and on to Austria? Or should we forget Schauffhausen and go straight to Garmisch, and then to Lucerne area, and to Austria?
2. Lucerne is terribly expensive, and I've been looking for a smaller area in which to stay, eg. Weggis or Kusnacht, etc. I have read reports on this site, but thought someone might have an idea for a large group such as ours. Am also concerned about what would be open at that time of year, and what would be family-friendly (4 young children).
After Austria, we have 2 days in Munich and then fly home.
Thank you for any advice you have!
