Advice on long week trip to Germany

Jump to last reply

Two retired couples are going to spend a long week in Germany in late October prior to taking a train to Budapest for a Danube river cruise. I'd like some constructive feedback on this plan. Some ideas of what to see where. None of the following is in stone. Note that we are not big museum types. Like to see some new sites - old towns & landscape, do a little shopping & some people watching. Maybe try some local brew & some German meals. Thanks in advance for your assistance.
Day 1 - Fly from USA.
Day 2 - Land in Frankfort mid-morning, pick up a car, take the short drive to Bacharach.
Day 3 - Spend day touring the Rhine Valley. Spend a second night in Bacharach.
Day 4 - Drive thru the Black Forest to Staufen.
Day 5 - Spend day touring the Black Forest. Spend a second night in Staufen.
Day 6 - Drive thru Bavaria to Fussen.
Day 7 - Visit Mt. Zugspritze & maybe Oberammergan as time permits. Spend a second night in Fussen.
Day 8 - Visit Cinderella's Castle, then drive to Munich, turn in the car in time to see the Glockenspiel at 1700 hours & than walk to the Hofbrauhaus Beer Hall for supper. Sleep in Munich.
Day 9 - Take the mid-morning high speed train to Budapest.
Not planning on seeing a lot of castles in Germany because we will cover those sites on the river cruise. I am not that interested to visiting the big German cities because most of them had to be rebuilt after WWII - lots of 65 year old cities in US to visit.
Thanks for your help.
