Train vs renting van group of 7 in Germany

Jump to last reply

We are travelling to Germany in July. We will have 7 people in our group including our German friend. She lives west of Stuttgart. We plan on taking a trip to Dachau/Munich then to Salzburg, and Berchtesgaden. From there we will head west to Fussen to tour Neuschwanstein and the Zugspitze. From there we will head home. I have looked the train routes up and if we go the train route it will add more time to our trip. I realize in Munich and Salzburg that we will leave the car outside the city and take the train. The train pass and car rental is similar in cost. I guess for me it makes more sense to make a loop with a car than taking the train. What am I missing.

We are looking at a full size van or two smaller vehicles.
