Trip Report Germany and Austria trip report

Jump to last reply

Our flight back to the states has been delayed so I thought I may as well report back to you all on our trip. First, thank you fodorites for your travel advice! Oftentimes, it's better than any guidebook I come across.

We landed in Frankfurt, Germany and immediately bought our train tickets to boppard (you buy them to Mainz and then get another ticket you can use for the Rhine Valley). We stayed at the lovely Bellvue hotel (I know I'm going to butcher the spelling of places but I'm doing this on my iPhone). I highly recommend this hotel - the service, location and overall stay was superb. We did the chairlift in boppard, visited the Marksburg castle and Rhinefel Castle and walked around Boppard, St. Goar and Bacharach. We traveled a lot using the train- didn't get a chance to go on a boat but that was fine with us. It was a nice quiet stressfree intro to Germany. We then rented a car from enterprise in Mainz (it was a last minute decision and a good one). The Enterprise office was superb- the rep got us an automatic car and waited for us even though their office had officially closed. We drove along the Romantic Road, stopping along the way.

Our first stop was to tour the lovely residence place in Wurzburg. Then we drove on to Rotenburg ob Der tier where we stayed for the night. We wandered all around town and even caught the infamous night watchman (not sure I would've paid for a tour with him though). We stayed at the marks romantik hotel which although we got a room in the attic was still quite lovely. The next day we drove all the way to fussen and (hadn't planned it) toured the two castles (Neuschwanstein Castle and Hohenschwangau Castle) and wandered around the area. I was glad to have done this with the car because we were able to take a very scenic drive around mountains and hills in Bavaria. After a long day, we ended up in Munich.

Munich was our least favorite part of our trip. We stayed 4 nights and in hindsight I wouldn't spend more than 2. We wandered around the city, did some shopping, visited the science museum, and the Nazi documentation center (didn't realize how long this would take us). We stayed at the Sheraton.

From Munich, we took the train to Salzburg. Salzburg was our favorite part of our trip. Oops time to go. Will finish later:)
