Bavaria: Need Itinerary and Lodging Help for Family of Six

Jump to last reply

This is my first posting so I apologize in advance if I bust posting etiquette and for my poor spelling of German words. :)

I've nearly saved enough frequent flyer points to be able to afford to take my family to Germany. The ages of the kids are between 11 and 25. Due to school (middle and college) we'll be going in early summer once school gets out - I've tentatively earmarked 7 - 18 June 2015. I'm hoping that time frame allows us to beat the masses of people that head for Bavaria in the summer.

I've visited Germany a handful of times by myself (for work) and have also read a great deal of input on this forum to arrive at a rough itinerary. I'm a retired military guy and can use the Edelweis Lodge, but I'm not convinced that I want to go that route. I'm sure it's great, but I kind of want my family to get a true German experience. Make sense - I'm on the fence right now? Here it goes.

- 7/8 June:
Fly into Munich and rent a car/van, drive to Garmisch and stay there as a home base (lodging recommendations for the family?)
- 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 June:
Day trip to Neuschwienstein, Munich (taking the train), Oberamergau, Fussen, N. Italy, hike the nearby Gorge, visit the Zukspitz and seek white water rafting (too much, anything that I sorely missed?) I figure I can use the Edelweis Lodge tour packages to support my itinerary there, whether I lodge there or not.
14 June:
Drive to Hallstadt and stop at Bertchesaden/Konigsee en route, overnight in Hallstadt (recommended lodging and things to do?)
15 June:
Spend the day at Hallstadt, in the late afternoon leave for Salzburg and and overnight there. (recommended lodging)
16-17 June:
While at Salzburg do the Salt mine, ice caves and Sound of Music Tour
18 June:
Head to Munich Airport and depart.

So...there it is. As others on this forum have attempted, I'll be trying to please a variety of ages and interests so need a little adventure thrown in to the mix. I'll be on the lookout for local fests and hit them as we can. I'm totally flexible from a places to visit perspective. As for lodging, I'm looking for "nice" at a reasonable price. Your input, recommendations and guidance will be greatly appreciated....and used.

Bruce
