Proposed Itinerary - Germany

Jump to last reply

Four friends planning 15 days in Germany in September. After much thought and consideration, we have decided to rent a car for part of our trip, rather than doing it completely by train. Below is our proposed itinerary so far:

DAY 1: Arrive @ Munich Airport early morning, shuttle to Munich city. Drop luggage at our accommodation, then maybe find a market to wander through, have an early lunch before meeting our bike tour @1230 for the afternoon. Have a leisurely dinner before finding our way back to our hotel for an early night.

DAY2: Train to Dachau for guided tour for 2 of us @ noon, while the other 2 visit a couple museums or just wander.
The 4 of us meet up in the afternoon and head to the BMW Museum/Tour.
Maybe visit one of the beer halls in the evening or just wander. Maybe an evening museum visit?

DAY 3: Pick up rental car in city centre first thing, drive to Zugspitze(am) and visit Garmisch-Partenkchn(pm). ?Stay overnight near here OR drive to Fussen and stay there for the night.

DAY 4: Neuschwanstein Castle, Schloss Hohenschwangau, Fussen. Begin our drive up the Romantic Road with our final destination being Rothenberg ob der Tauber (approx 3 hr drive if no stops realistic?). Is it realistic to expect to get to Rothenberg by approx 7pm with plan to do the Night Watchman's Tour 8pm? Stay overnight near Rothenberg.

DAY 5: Walk the walls of Rothenberg before breakfast, then spend the day sightseeing and shopping. Drive to just north of Ulm where one of us will be visiting family the next day. Stay in Ulm or nearby tonight.

DAY 6: The other 3 of us visits Ulm or takes a day trip to Stuttgart. We all meet up in evening and stay her a 2nd night.

DAY 7: Drive to Gengenbach which will be our base for the next 3 nights for 2 days in the Black Forest, one day in Strasbourg.

DAY 8: Black Forest
DAY 9: Black Forest

DAY 10: After spending the day in Strasbourg, France (celebrating one of our birthdays), return to Germany and drive north -spend the night in or near Heidelberg.

DAY 11: Visit Heidelberg for the day (visit castle and do a little sight-seeing) before driving north and then stay in ?Boppard for next 3 nights as base in Rhine/Mosel River area.

DAY 12: ?Return our rental car to Koblenz first thing in morning, then continue our visit of Rhine/Mosel area via train ?or keep the car while here? Do a Rhine cruise starting @ Bingen, maybe visit Rudesheim Castle prior to doing the cruise- cruise to St Goar.

DAY 13: Visit Cochem, maybe do some bike riding through winery area.

DAY 14: Visit Burg Eltz Castle. Visit Marksburg Castle later in day.

DAY 15: More sightseeing in this area, prior to getting train late afternoon back to Munich, spending our last night near the airport before flying out around noon.

Any comments on the above itinerary are appreciated. Does it seem like we have one too may days in the Rhine/Mosel area that could be better used elsewhere in? Does it make sense to return our car on arrival to this area, or should we be hanging onto it for at least part of our time here? Should we maybe visit Trier while here?
We value and appreciate your comments. Thanks!
