Driving Paris to Bern: via A6 or A5 with stop at Vaux le Vicomte?

Jump to last reply

Traveling in July by rental car from Paris (Orly) to Bern.

1. Which route is better: A6 or A5 with a pit stop at the chateau Vaux le Vicomte? We are on kind of a tight schedule as it is (catching a train in Bern later that day), and Michelin says the A6 is a little shorter. However, does the A5 have less traffic and less tolls?

2. Is the chateau worth a quick stop? We will have 2 kids (9 and 11) with us, who have never seen a chateau. We will be seeing small castles in Switzerland (on Lake Thun), and a large castle in Germany (Neuschwanstein), as well as Nymphenburg Palace, later in the trip.

3. Also- anyone have an idea how long the drive is from Paris Orly to Bern? Michelin says 6 hrs., 45 mins. My iphone says 5 hrs., 43 mins. Another site says 6 hrs., 15 mins. I realize traffic plays a role, but that seems like a big discrepancy. We will be hitting the road about 8am on a Tuesday.

Thoughts?
