Krakow/Zakopane OR Munich?

Jump to last reply

I'm traveling to Gdansk this June with my H and 18 mo old to visit family for a few weeks. We wanted to do a 2-3 day jaunt at the end of our trip - either to Munich (H's preference), or I was thinking of Krakow/Zakopane. I'm wondering if anyone can weigh in on either city - & also keep in mind we have the little one in tow (so the salt mines are out of the question!). I've been to Krakow & Zakopane about 15 yrs ago; H has never been - but he would really like to visit Germany - however I think staying in Poland would be much cheaper without the Euro costs.

We have free hotel in either city so this is not an issue. In Munich we wanted to visit Oberammergau, Garmisch-Partenkirchen and possibly Neuschwanstein Castle. In Krakow I'm not sure what activities would be best with the little one. I would love to visit Zakopane, but obviously will not be able to do any hiking. I remember the town being quaint and the market there..

I was trying to estimate the cost of the train ticket from Gdansk to Krakow - & it looks like it's about $50USD one way... actually about the same price as a flight to Munich. Would car rental be needed in Krakow? We're looking for efficiency and ease of travel with the baby (I don't even know if the 8 hr train ride is a good idea...)

Just trying to weigh our options here - any tips are appreciated!
