Germqn/Swiss November Rail Travel Experts Thoughts

Jump to last reply

I'd like to have your feedback. As you can see below, I enjoy rail travel so I am not concerned about numbers of train days as evidenced by a previous Europe trip with 33 trains over a 12 day span (my wife refused to accompany me although she is going this time for the markets.) Planning thus far:

11/28 Flight to Berlin
11/29 Rail Berlin to Quedlinberg, Auto rental pickup
11/30 - 12/3 Auto travel to Offenburg (Christmas markets, birthday party with friends)
12/6 Black forest Railway to Romanschorn, Voralpen Route to Luzern
12/6 - 12/9 Stay Luzern, Swiss Rail trips to Mt. Titlis, Luzern - Arosa roundtrip via Andermatt
12/10 Flight Home

Questions -
1. After point to point rail cost comparison, the Swiss/German Two Country Rail Pass seems the least cost, best suited for my travels. Am I missing something?
2. Has anyone experienced the Black Forest Railway and the Voralpen Route?

Thanks for your feedback.
