Please help with my Alpine itinerary

Jump to last reply

I know I'm being gormless, but as I look at my travel map for Germany, Switzerland, and Austria (and maybe a bit of northern Italy), I can't seem to decide which towns to visit. So many of the towns are so close together that it's hard for me to separate them, and various of you Fodorites have suggested interesting-sounding places to see.

I plan on making the the trip in late August and will stay for 3 or 4 weeks. I don't hike, but I do like to walk, explore the towns, admire the architecture, drink coffee in sidewalk cafes, window shop, and just take in the ambiance.

I'm not crazy about art museums, as it seems as if I've visited most of the famous museums in the western world over the past 50 years, but I do like those that show something of life in past times--the Limes museum in Aalen, the Wohnmuseum in Stein am Rhein, or the prehistoric village recreation in the Otztal.

I'll definitely spend several days in Garmisch. I've been there a couple of times in the past, but it's the kind of town that I like. Also Innsbruck. I'm not sure about Berchtesgaden, but I'm considering it.

I'll also want to take a train like the Glacier Express or the Bernina Express, but I'll need to look at particulars before I decide.

Any suggestions for an itinerary?
