Need advice with buying airline ticket: Austria, Germany maybe Switzerland

Jump to last reply

My husband and teenage girls (will be 17) are thinking about going to Austria this Summer (in July). We always travel in July so we know all about the crowds and the heat :-). Anyways, I need some advice on where we should travel into and out of. I was thinking into Munich, Germany (we want to see Bavaria) and out of Vienna, Austria (Salzburg and Vienna and maybe countryside?) or vice versa depending on ticket availability. Exploring the eastern part of Switzerland has also come up but Switzerland seems very expensive so we're not sure at this point. We are thinking of doing a 2 week trip and mostly traveling by train.

Question: 1- what do you think about the flight choice of arriving into Vienna and out of Munich (or vice versa)? 2- Are these countries well connected by train? If so, is train travel relatively inexpensive? (for example, if someone asked me the same question about Italy, I would say: yes and yes). 3- Admittedly I haven't done much research yet but what are the must-sees? (we love art, architecture, the outdoors, palaces, cafes)

Thank you!
