Trip Planning - Advice Please

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a trip to Austria & Germany for my husband and I (in our mid-late 30's), and would love some advice. I am thinking of flying into Munich, and out of Frankfurt (or the opposite). Our trip would begin mid September, for 14 days. We will have a car, which is why we are flying in and out of Germany to avoid fees of returning car to a different country.
My plans so far include
Fly into Munich-
3 nights Salzburg
3 nights Vienna
3 nights - ?
2 nights - Rothenburg ob de Tauber
3 nights - ?
Fly out of Franfurt
Any recommendations on where to spend our time between Vienna and Rothenburg?
We have been to Mittenwald (loved it), have seen all of Ludwig's castles (no need to return). Have been to top of Zugspitze(amazing). I have been researching Lauterbrunnen - it looks stunning, but I know would be a long drive for the day. Is it worth the day's drive, or would you recommend something else? The Dolomites, or perhaps Tyrol?
Also, the last 3 days at the end of our trip. We made friends on our last visit to Germany, and they live in the Heidelberg area. We plan to try and have dinner with them one evening. Advice on where to visit during that part of our stay?
We love small villages like Mittenwald, and enjoy spending our time looking at beautiful scenery.
Sorry for the long post, just trying to figure out the logistics so that I can book our flights. Thanks for your help!
