Driving Tour - Austria, Bavaria, Switzerland

Jump to last reply

I'm looking for some trip ideas. Here is what I am working with:

Start/End points in Munich, Vienna, Prague?, Bern or Southern France. Travel by car. Munich for Oktoberfest (sept 22nd 2013). 10-12 over night stays. Don't think I wanna spend more than 2 days in each location (probably tour the host city for 1 day then day trip from there to surrounding areas). Points of interest: Eagle's Nest, Salzburg, Bavarian Castles, Bernese Alps, Innsbrouck) I'm just trying to get a good start/end point which would accomdate international flights at a reasonable price, 5-6 'home base' stops for 2 days.

After some thinking it may seem like too much time over a small region of land, maybe should be spread out more? I get a Deal with Hilton Hotels so larger cities can accomadate that, however I am not trying to stay too often in larger cities.

Any feedback would be helpful (points of interests, time allocation, regions, scenery, etc...)

Cost is a factor as well. Travel for 2 complete for about $6,000. I understand Rental Car fees for cross county drops is expensive but I am willing to pay that. I think I did enough research to say that $6,000 should be pretty close. I would like to travel parallel to the Alps (ie. not from Munich to Munich)
