Near final itinerary in Germany

Jump to last reply

So, I have taken some of your advice and changed the itinerary a bit and have decided to use the train more and not stay in Nurnberg. At this point I still have not given up the Rhine since we fly out of Frankfurt. Also, I am not using the train to Rottenburg.
Day 1 We arv Berlin @12:45
Day 2 Museum Island
Day 3 Berlin, adult daughter arrives in the afternoon
Day 4- walking tour and other Berlin sights
Day 5-Berlin underground tour and other sights
Day 6- Berlin sights
Day 7- Train to Dresden
Day 8 Dresden, Royal Palace and Green Vault,Christmas Market starts
Day 9 train to Bamberg, explore Bamberg
Day 10 daytrip on train to Nurnberg (first day of market)
Day 11 Day trip on train to Wurzberg
DAy 12 Early Train to Munich- tour Deutsches and maybe City Walk
DAy 13 visit Dachau
Day 14 Pick uup car and drive to Linderhof
Day 15 Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau
DAy 16 - to Rothenburg (maybe stop in Dinkelsbuhl enroute)
Day 17- morning in Rothenburg and then to Rudesheim
Day 18 Rheinfels Castle and Marksburg to Frankfurt
Day 19 fly out at 7:20

Munich is tight. I could forget the day trip to Wurzberg on Day 11 and instead have one more day in Munich. Then we would not stop in Dinkelsbuhl on Day 16 but instead get to Rothenburg earlier and finish what we want to do that day. Then we could stop in Wurzburg on the way to Rudesheim. So the question becomes do we add the day to Munich or keep the 3 days in Bamberg. We may not fit in the Residenz Palace in Munich, what are thoughts on this Palace?
Thank you, thank you, What made this a bit tricky was the start dates of the markets and flight dates.
