After cruise travel through Germany, Austria and Switzerland- Questions!

Jump to last reply

Good morning from Illinois! We ( my husband and I)- are planning a trip this May after our Danube River cruise and will be seeing a variety of cities and towns in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.~. some questions:

When visiting Salzburg area would you suggest staying in Berchtesgaden with the daytrip to Salzburg or stay in Salzburg itself? We are planning on 3 to 4 days in Salzburg area and hoping to see Berchtesgaden, Halstatt, Wolfgang see, and Konigsee. how long is really long enough to see the sights in this area? We are hoping to see the Eaglesnest… Depending on the weather of course, see the sound of music sites in Salzburg and other things of interest in this area. Any suggestions? So appreciated!

Fussen- hoping to see the castles( one or two if not all), Zugspite, Oberammergau, Mittenwald, Garnisch- Partenkirchen... How many days suggested to see this area? I assume some where between one and three but what would you suggest? Is there a good central location to visit the sites here that I listed? Some have suggested staying in Reutte... is that a good central location? Names of hotel?

Lucerne area- we are hoping to see some of Switzerland and spend a few days as we end our trip and fly home. In this area we would like to see Interlaken, Grifdelwald, Murren area and possibly Bern and spend some time in Lucerne of course. Thing questions – how many days needed to see this area and get a flavor for Switzerland and the Alps? Can we visit Interlaken from Lucerne depending on the weather of course.

We will be renting a car but would like to know if there are scenic routes in the areas I mentioned or should we turn in the car at some point and begin our journey by train?

Just a little information we are a couple in our mid 60s… In very good health and enjoy walking but not extensive hiking so that might help as you consider answering our questions. We will be traveling during this time in Germany, Austria and Switzerland for two weeks.

I know this is a lot to cover but any information you may have regarding my questions would be so appreciated. We are seeing Rothenburg also at the beginning of our trip but that is already scheduled… Thank you thank you and look forward to hearing from any of you very soon. -Melissa Troutman Pekin Illinois
