My husband and I will be traveling with his sister the end of September, early October. We have friends in Darmstadt so we will stay with them a few days when we arrive, and then one night when we depart. My husband and I have been to some of these places before, his sister, never.

I have some things that I know we want to do, others, maybe if time allows. Always love suggestions for the best scenic routes to get from one place to another. We're pretty "slow" tourists so I don't want to overschedule, but like to know options and other's experiences

Leave IAD fly Frankfurt
Arrive Darmstadt stay Darmstadt 3 nights ~ upon arrival, do whatever friends have planned
* First full day ~ Rhine Cruise w/friends
* Second full Day, Mosel Valley and Burg Eltz w/friends

Drive Damstadt to Regensburg, stay 3 nights ~
*First full day to explore Regensburg
*Second full day maybe a train to Nuremberg or is there a short boat trip on the Danube, maybe through the Gorge?

Drive Regensburg to Garmisch Partenkirchen, stay 5 nights
*maybe stop at Nymphenburg Palace in Munich on the way?
*First full day market (we're staying at an apartment) and explore locally.
*Second full day Linderhof and Oberammergau and Ettal Monastery
*Third full day ~ Neuschwantein and Hohenschwangau
*Fourth full day Cable car and hike/walk on top

Drive Garmisch Partenkirchen to Heiligenblut, stay 1 night
* drive in or out on Grossglockner Alpine Road, also up to the Glacier

Drive Heiligenblut to Berchtesgaden stay 3 nights Ramsau
*First full day Konigsee and ????
*Second full day Rossfeldpanoramastrasse ~ are there easy hikes/walks up there?

Drive Berchtesgaden to Rothenburg stay 1 night
Nightwatchman's Tour & explore

Drive Rothenburg to Darmstadt, stay 1 night
Leave Frankfurt arrive IAD

I do have most of the accomodations booked, looking forward to seeing Germany, Bavaria, Austria again :)
