Planning stage Family of four trip to Bavaria, Austria, Switzerland?

Jump to last reply

I am so grateful for the insights provided by fodorites for previous family trips to Italy, England and Scotland! Invaluable information and amazing trips!

Mario (DH), The Scholar (son age 16) and Lunatic Maximus (son age 13) and myself are planning a summer trip (end of July and early August) to Bavaria, Austria and maybe Switzerland. We are blessed to be planning a 13-14 day trip.

So far, my areas of interest are: Munich, Rhine Valley, Romantic Road, Fussen (Castles) - Garmish, O'gau, Rothenburg, Heidleberg, Saltzburg, (not staying in each of those, but probably staying in 5 and passing thru the others).

My first question: should I look into flying "open jaw"? I figure either in or out of Munich or round trip from Munich?

None of us have been to this area of the world before. We are interested in staying in gorgeous little German towns (Heidelberg, Rothenburg), seeing castles, gorgeous views and unfamilliar places, probably limited on museum time.

Any and all suggestions would be so welcome! Thank you in advance! Kimi G
