Venice to Munich by train in late December? (as part of larger trip)

Jump to last reply

I am thinking about taking the train from Venice to Munich towards the end of December but I have a few questions. I had originally considered flying but came across some posts about the train.

Is this line subject to delays during the winter and do I need to allow extra time to make this journey?

Is it worth making a stop over in Innsbuck for a day or two at the expense of spending that time in Munich? I will have a few days at the beginning of the trip in Munich (see below for the schedule). This will be my first time visiting Italy and Munich. I have visited
other parts of Bavaria so I plan to focus on Munich (and maybe a side trip to Nurnberg).

While the train trip takes longer, part of the fun might be the scenery and making 1 or 2 stops along the way in places that I might not ordinarily visit. I am in my mid 30's and plan to have a minimal amount of luggage to make train travel convenient. I am not opposed to flying but generally favor train travel for sight seeing and do not mind spending hours on a train. I enjoy walking around old towns, visiting museums, and enjoying the outdoors.

Here is a rough itinerary of the entire trip

12/13 leave US for Munich, stay in Munich
12/16 fly from Munich to Rome (ticket not purchased yet)
12/21 Take train from Rome to Florence
12/25 Take train from Florence to Venice in early AM
12/25 Stay in Venice until 27th or 28th ?
<rest of schedule is not set>
12/31 Depart Munich for return to US

Any comments are welcome. If anything looks unreasonable I am open to changes. The only part that I can not change is the Italy portion between Rome and Venice. I will travel with a friend during that time but outside of that, I will be on my own.

Thanks in advance.
