Mosel in Winter?

Jump to last reply

While the main reason we are heading to Germany is for the Christmas markets, I don’t want to go into market overload and so we are trying to sprinkle in some other activities, namely wine. Haha. We are focusing on Bavaria and Salzburg.

I was originally planning on 2 nights in Bacharach and and one night in Cochem. My question is, is it worth going to this region in the winter (will things be open?) or is it better saved for a different spring/fall trip? Or for less time? If we skip the Mosel and the Rhine, any suggestions of stops for wine?

I’d love to visit a spa but won’t make it to Baden Baden. Any other suggestions that won’t break the bank?

When we went to Austria/Switzerland last year two of our favorite stops were Hallstatt and Wengen. We’re looking for a scenic stop for a day or two of relaxation. There are so many options, I’d love to hear what people’s favorites (that are easily accessible via train to Munich or Salzburg).

One other question, I really want to visit Neuschwanstein. I know Fussen is one of the best spots to easily access Neuschwanstein but are there any other towns that are easily accessible by train?
