Help needed with Germany-Prague-Austria trip - we love our Fodors friends!

Jump to last reply

Fodor's Forums are the best - this is what tell friends and family who ask me for my trip-planning secrets. You all have helped us create amazing memories throughout Ireland, France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, and various US cities and I feel like some of you are old friends now!

This time, we'll be travelling for 16 days mid-to-late August, flying in and out of Berlin. I'm struggling at the moment with how much time to give to each of these locations: Berlin, Dresden, Prague, Salzburg, Munich, Bavaria. Our plan is, as Ingo suggested to another poster earlier this morning, to use the train to travel within and between Berlin, Dresden, Prague, Salzburg, and Munich, then rent a car to drive to Mittenwald/Garmisch (Bavarian Alps) area and up the Romantic Road through Bavaria. We'll then need to get back to Berlin and are unsure of whether we should keep the car or leave it (Wurzburg? Bamburg? Nurnburg?) and train back to Berlin for our stay there, which we plan to enjoy at the end of our trip rather than the beginning.

Tentative thoughts are to break trip up this way: Arrive in Berlin after overnight flight and take train directly to Dresden (is train station attached to airport as in some cities, is there a shuttle, or is it a hassle to get from plane to train?). Then:

Dresden - 1 night (sad, but better than skipping it altogether?)

Prague - 4 nights

Salzburg - 2 nights

Munich - 2 nights

Bavarian Alps/Romantic Road 3 nights (really confused about this part - with car I'm thinking) - hate those one-night stays but thinking we'll need to keep moving, maybe Mittenwald then Rothenburg, and somewhere in between - really need help here!)

Berlin 4 nights (with day trip to Potsdam)

All these numbers are really based on nothing more than broad advice given by friends who've been to Prague and Berlin and the few things I've managed to pick up reading the forums so far. We would really like to see all these areas but is this doable? I feel good about the time in those two cities but don't want to be on the Benny Hill tour either.

Thoughts? Advice? If you suggest more time anywhere, tell me what you'd cut!

Thanks to all.
