Please review my REVISED Germany/Austria/Switzerland itinerary

Jump to last reply

Thank you for all your input on my original itinerary. I have now a revised itinerary for trip starting mid-September and would appreciate your expert scrutiny. I also have a number of questions. Thanking you in advance.

Fly to Frankfurt, pick up rental car
Drive to Bacharach – Rhine cruise, Burg Eltz (3 nights)
Drive along Black Forest (just big bang section from Titisee to Freiburg)– stay in Staufen (1 night)
Drive to Lauterbrunnen – see Wengen, etc. (4 nights)
Drive to Fussen – castles, Zugspitze (3 nights)
Drive to Hallstatt – check out scenery (1 night)
Drive to Munich – stay near airport (1 night)
Fly home

Now my questions.
1. Would you recommend staying at Wolfgansee vs. Hallstatt? Interested in great scenery and charm. Only staying for 1 night. Should I make it 2?
2. Should I stay in Lauterbrunnen vs. Wengen?
3. Shoud I stay in Staufen or Freiburg? We like being able to walk around after dinner and check out the town. Which has more to do? Which is less touristy?
4. We will do the short Black Forest trip from Freiburg to Titisee. Is this a mistake? Should we do the whole road?
5. Please confirm that sticker (vignette) costs ~8 euros for Austria and 60CHF (gulp) for Switzerland. Where do we get these stickers? At rental agency when we pick car up at airport?
6. From our itinerary, is there any scary mountain driving? My husband is pretty fearless, but good to have a heads up.
7. We are skipping Salzburg. Is this sacrilege? We will not be attending concerts and are mostly interested in scenic beauty.
8. How about Bacharach vs. St. Goar? Which is better?
