Are Munich and Vienna too similar for same trip?

Jump to last reply

I will be taking a short term teaching position (3 weeks) in Vienna starting 3 October.
We live in Australia and want to travel in nearby Europe for 10 days prior to that.
Goals: There few mountains in Australia, so one thing we'd like to do is see the Alps. And we'd like to see a different country than Austria in the 10 days prior to Vienna. Finally, I like to see some of modern Europe, not just historic Europe. Already seen a lot of castles and cathedrals in my life.
Thus, we could fly to Munich (4 days), then Innsbruck (4 days) for mountain scenery then to Vienna. I'd welcome to learn more about Germany (as an important country in Europe, already been to Berlin 6 years ago). Heard that the train route Munich to Innsbruck via Garmisch-Partenkirchen (Germany & Austria) is very scenic. However, I'm concerned that MUNICH AND VIENNA ARE TOO SIMILAR to visit both in a 5 week trip.

Alternatively, we could start in Italy (Milan or Florence) and take a train across the Swiss Alps ultimately to Vienna, such as the Glacier Express.

Any advice welcomed. Don't hesitate, just suggestion.

Thanks.
