Rothenburg-King'sCastles-Switzerland-Northern Italy

Jump to last reply

We are in the preliminary planning stages for this trip in late September. Wondering if you have any thoughts or suggestions.

Thinking of:

flying into Frankfurt - train to Rothenberg for 2 nights

train Rothenberg to Fussen - 2 nights (for Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein)

Switzerland 5 nights

Verona/Padua/Vicenza area - 3nights

Lake Garda 2 nights

Lake Como 3 nights including day trip into Milan

fly home from Milan

As a little background we had a fabulous European trip in Fall 2010 (I did a trip report) - our Avalon river cruise was cancelled the day of our departure - we grabbed a Eurail pass and travelled for 16 nights from Budapest to Amsterdam by train. At that time we did not get to Rothenberg and King's castles which is why those are the only spots in Germany this trip.

One specific question right now and surely there will be lots more. Looks like train from Rothenberg to Fussen requires minimum 4 changes of train. Does that seem right? Is there a better way we should be going?

Thanks for any suggestions!
