Narrowed down itinerary, but still need help finishing in Munich

Jump to last reply

So we started out big and have been slowly narrowing down our itinerary for a late August/September trip, but now I have decision paralysis and could use some more help. I know it is still an ambitious itinerary.

So far we have booked our arrival and 3 nights in Geneva, and a flight home from Munich about 2 weeks later.

From Geneva we plan to spend 5-6 nights total in the Bernese Oberland. Kandersteg for 2-3 nights, stopping for lunch and sight seeing maybe in Thun on the way? It looks to be 3 or so hours of travel.

After Kandersteg we would like to spend the remainder (3-4 nights) in one of the car-free towns, like Murren or Wengen as a base for exploring some more of the area; there's something really charming about a car-free town :)

After that... is the paralysis. The original itinerary crammed the prior stops into fewer days (2 nights per) and went on to far too many places (Vaduz, Innsbruck, Salzburg, Fussen...).

We are now leaning towards heading straight to Munich (full day of travel), and then using it as a base for day trips until we fly out (4-5 nights later), since I haven't been able to identify (ok, choose...) a second destination to stop in before Munich for 1-2 nights.

Question 1 - any route recommendations? Any place we should try to stop for lunch at?

Question 2 -Since cities aren't my biggest "thing".. is there a place near Munich anyone would recommend as a base instead that is easily accessible and easy to get to the airport from? If not, recommendations on where to stay, where to grab a drink and/or eat we get back each night, would be greatly appreciated.

Question 3 - day trips. I'm probably hopeless and will end up having to leave it until the last minute... but I'm open to suggestions/itineraries... Neuchwanstein, Berchtesgaden, Nuremburg, Dachau, Hohenzollern (long one...)....

I should probably mention we intend to rely on trains/public transportation throughout.

Thanks in advance!
