USA to Munich Airport then Train?

Jump to last reply

Hello, I'm researching a trip for this summer to the Munich and Salzburg areas. I've been reading travel guides, surfing the web and now working my way through these forums. Our family of three (two adults and one 8 year old) will be flying from the US east coast into Munich on an overnight flight. We were assuming we should stay in Munich so we don't have to spend a few hours on a train after the overnight flight. However, as I continue my research, I'm wondering if that should be a concern or not. I've never flown that far to know how jet-lagged we might be or if we'll be good for the first day we arrive and more jet-lagged on the second day. I realize that everyone is different but in my opinion we err more on the side of being tired than overly energetic in general.

In my research on Munich it seems that lodging there is more expensive and there aren't a whole lot of places in the city I'm just dying to see. I seem to be more attracted to the outdoors attractions in the Bavarian region and the mountains and lakes part than the city. So that leads me to the question of whether or not when we arrive at the airport in Munich in the morning will the idea of spending an hour or two on a train to go southeast of the city be too draining or might we arrive excited and ready to see the countryside? I don't want to assume that I will want to go directly from the airport and crash at a hotel (especially since our room may not be ready yet anyway) but I don't want to be overzealous in what we're capable of handling after the long plane ride, either. I just don't have the experience to know what's reasonable to expect and am looking for a bit of advice on that front.

We'll be in the area for about 10 days, 5 nights of which will be spent in the Salzburg area. Since we're flying into Munich, we're open to exploring the areas within a few hours of it for a day and a half or so before moving on to Salzburg. The we have a day to spend in Munich on the return trip before flying home. We hope to travel on public transportation rather than rent a car since the bus and train system there is supposed to be terrific and should allow us access to quite a number of attractions.

I've researched the Salzburg part of our trip and have a good idea of what we'd like to do in that area but the couple of days between our arrival in Munich and when our hotel reservation in Salzburg begins are still in the early research stages.

So I guess my questions are:
1) will a +/- 2 hour train ride be a drag after the long flight? and
2) If we're not that excited about the city of Munich, is a day and a half stay in the Bavaria area a good option before making our way to Salzburg? I realize Munich and Salzburg are not that far apart but I guess I'd like to know what within an under 3 hour train ride would be nice to do in addition to Salzburg if Munich isn't a big draw for us?

Any advice is welcome! Thank you in advance for any guidance and tips!
