Places to see in Bavaria and Austria

Jump to last reply

I am planning a road trip with 5 adults from Bavaria to Salzburg and have ideas of places to visit in between, but want to get some advise/suggestions. To give a little background, my boyfriend and I did a two week trip this past September/October from Munich to Innsbruck to Venice, to Rome, to Florence, back to Innsbruck, and flew out of Munich....all in a car in two weeks. Yes, it was a lot, but it was absolutely AMAZING! We attended Oktoberfest, saw amazing historical sites in Itay, ate amazing food, and just had a wonderful time. It was so amazing that we want to do something similar but bring our family along. This trip will be shorter by a few days and cover less ground as we will be doing an open jaw flight. We don't mind driving and hopping to different places even if its for a short time.

Here's what I have in mind and would appreciate any suggestions:
- Fly to Stuttgart and stay for a day or two to settle in
- Drive from Stuttgart to Rothenburg for a day trip then drive down to Munich
- Stay in Munich for 3 or 4 days
- Drive from Munich to Innsbruck for a night
- Drive from Innsbruck to Salzburg for a few nights
- Fly out of Salzburg

Here's some ideas of what we plan to do or see in each place:
- Stuttgart: relax and eat (maybe visit Porshe or Mercedes if we are up to it)
- Rothenburg: explore the city
- Munich: Oktoberfest, Dachau, BMW Museum (maybe)
- Innsbruck: Krimml Waterfalls, drive to Meiders to go on the alpine coaster (did this before and have to do it again)
- Salzburg: Eisriesenwelt ice caves, drive to Hallsatt, Motzart's house, Eagle's Nest

Yes, I know...a lot of stuff, but we did a lot the last trip that we didn't expect to do, and would like to have different ideas of things to do in the other places and we can choose from. So basically, any places/things in between Stuttgart, Munich, and Salzburg.

If any of you are interested in our most recent trip through Germany, Austria, and Italy let me know.
