Itinerary input- Germany/Austria/Switzerland

Jump to last reply

Hello seasoned travelers-

I'm currently planning our Christmas vacation to Europe and would like some thoughts on my itinerary. We are a family that includes 3 young children (10, 8 and 6) My original plan was to visit Germany, Austria and Switzerland but it seems people think you should cut half of what you plan and then do that! I'm concerned about winter driving- as you cannot predict snowstorms etc. I'm still not set on a rental car vs train/bus. I've heard equal pros and cons for each.

Currently we are scheduled to arrive in Munich around noon on 12/18 I planned to stay there until 12/20 and depart that AM for the next stop
12/20- Rothenburg ob de Tauber/ Nuremburg
12/21-22- Lucerne Switzerland
12/23-26- Seefeld, Austria
12/26-27- Salzburg, Austria
12/27-28- Munich- departs

Some say this is great, others say I should save Switzerland for a separate trip and stay put in Munich and Bavaria as there is plenty to do and see there.

Our main focus for the trip is sightseeing, experiencing Christmas in Europe (markets, tradition, décor etc) We will see a few castles but don't need to do everything!

I'm interested in any advice you all have!
Thanks in advance.
