extent of one way travel for a "day trip"

Jump to last reply

I like the idea of renting an apartment for a relatively long term (say two weeks or so) in an interesting place, and then doing day trips by train from there to other places. In theory a two hour or so each way trip doesn't sound too bad, but I'd like to hear people's experiences about whether thats realistic. One hours each way seems clearly doable, but I wonder if two hours each way, makes for just a little too much travel, when sandwiched around a full day of sightseeing at the destination.
I like the idea of Munich as a base camp, and then my wife and I taking day trips to places like Tegernsee, Regensburg, Salzburg, Chiemsee etc. all possible on the Bayernticket for 27 euros total, roundtrip for two if we take the non-express trains.
