travel between Austria and Germany

Jump to last reply

Hi all. We will be travelling with our family of 4 in June in Germany, Austria and Prague. We plan to take the train from Munich to Innsbruck and rent a car, stay there for 2 days, drive to Salzburg, stay for 2 days, then take the train back to Munich en route to Rothenburg and on to Prague. My questions are:
Is it reasonable to day trip to Nueschwanstein and Zugspitze from Innsbruck? We don't mind mountain driving and would love to explore the alps but I'm having a hard time judging driving times. We would like to avoid staying in a new place every night if possible. How much time should we allow between Innsbruck and Salzburg?
We are planning on taking the train from Munich to Rothenburg. Is there any advantage to driving?
Should we get train tickets in advance for the trips from Munich-Innsbruck and Salzburg-Munich?
Thanks for your help!
