Suggestions for France, Lake Lucerne, Liechtenstein and Munich

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip with three other people to Europe this summer for two weeks. The initial plan was to road trip it from Paris to Munich, including French wine country, Lake Lucerne, and Liechtenstein. Our plan was to spend 2-3 days in each place, depending on how much there is to do.

Fly into Paris, and spend a couple of days there (we have all been there before and do not need too much time)
Drive to Champagne or Bordeaux - spend time at the vineyards
Colmar
Lake Lucerne - spend a couple of days hiking
Liechtenstein
Munich

After doing some research, I am concerned about the costs of fees when renting a car in one country, and dropping it off in another. My questions are:

- Do you think this is too much? Should we eliminate one of our stops? Is there somewhere you think we should definitely NOT miss out on?

- in order to avoid the crazy costs, should we rent a car only for the French leg of our trip, and take trains to the other areas? Is this easy to navigate? Which wine country area do you recommend we visit?

Any and all advice is welcome. Thanks so much in advance!
