Regensburg then the mountains - Garmish-Partenkirchen this time?

Jump to last reply

I'll be in Regensburg in June and then I want to take about a week of holiday somewhere to walk in alpine meadows, see some snow capped peaks, and visit a few scenic towns, possibly crafts or folk music and dance. I will then fly onward from MUC. I am a 60-yr old female traveling solo.

First--am I missing some place beautiful near Regensburg that I should see before I leave the area (besides the town itself, which I have planned)? I see some parkland toward the north and routes for glassmaking, but nothing that in my mind beats out the Alps to the south. But my guidebook has little information on the area and it is unfamiliar to me, so I could be missing something.

A few years ago, I had a couple of days, so I went to Mittenwald and had a pleasant time taking the chair lift for a hike, listening to the local band concert, and enjoying the small town. I'd sort of like that on a larger scale.

This trip I have more time--up to one week. First I thought of Berchesgarten. I have never been there and it sounds beautiful with the Königssee. But then, I wondered how many days I could fill there--lake, Eagles Nest, a couple of hiking trails? Is a visit to Chiemsee from there a good idea? I've been to Salzburg and the lakes beyond and don't want to return there.

Then I switched to the idea of staying in more of a transport hub with hikes nearby, larger town than I might want, but more options for more days--that is how I came up with G-P. Will it be overwhelming with tourists and traffic? Perhaps a place on the edge of town near a bus stop or away from the center? My thoughts are: 2 days of trails in the area, 1 day to top of a mountain, 1 day to Oberammergau + abbey?, Where else? Füssen? Seefeld? I wouldn't mind seeing the castles from a view, but I don't want to tour Neuschwanstein or Lindau this trip. I might stop back in Mittenwald to see the violin museum. Somehow I missed it last time.

I think this may be one of those decisions where I can't go wrong, but I always appreciate tips.
