Day roadtrips from Munich base

Jump to last reply

We may be buying a BMW and taking European delivery--so we find ourselves in Bavaria where I have NEVER been and my husband hasn't been in 40 or 50 years. The idea is find a self-catering place in Munich where parking the car isn't too much a problem and stay there for 2 weeks. We'd like to take 5-7 day trips down roads that are fun driving (after all, we will have the ultimate driving machine) and where the scenery is beautiful. We can stop in villages and perhaps make it to some of the more important towns.

Oh, we'll be travelling in April probably, possibly very early May, if that makes a difference.

If Google maps identifies drive time from Munich to destination as 1 1/2 hours that's terrific and allows for detours and stops. Up to two hours or so distance is probably manageable for day trips. (We are an older couple so we don't want to get too wild and I'll be doing the lion's share of the driving.) We'd rather stay off the autobahn unless we are headed home and done with the day's explorations.

So what are your favorite villages, monasteries/churches, museums, gardens and scenic views within about two hours of Munich? Are there great restaurants or should we pack a picnic?

Thanks one and all.
