Question about renting a car vs using public transport Munich - Salzburg

Jump to last reply

I am in the process of planning a trip to Munich-Salzburg for next May/June, probably 12 to 14 days including travel from Chicago. We’ve been to Germany several times but always with a group. This next trip I am thinking about renting a car in Munich and driving to Salzburg. We would initially stay in Munich for several days and travel to Salzburg, do some sightseeing and return stopping in Fussen and G-P then return to Munich.

I’m looking for some guidance on renting a car vs. other options. If I rent a car does it make sense to do so from the train station or elsewhere? Since I’ve never driven a car in Germany I am a bit apprehensive. Any guidance regarding driving there would be appreciated.

Would it be better simply to travel by train to Salzburg and do day trips by bus?
