Bavaria & Austria Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hey guys, I am visiting Germany and Austria at the end of next week and need some advice for planning my itinerary. Will be arriving and returning from Frankfurt but my mom is visiting Wurzburg in Germany for a work assignment so I'll be heading straight to Wurzburg where my parents and I will meet to kick off our trip. We have 8 nights in total from when we meet in Wurzburg and here's a rough itinerary that I've put together after doing a lot of research/asking around and taking my never-ending wish list into account.

Day 1 - Friday 9 Oct - Travel to Europe
Day 2 - Saturday 10 Oct - Arrive in Frankfurt, travel to Wuzberg, stay in Wuzberg
Day 3 - Sunday 11 Oct - Stay in Wurzburg
Day 4 - Monday 12 Oct - Train from Wurzburg to Nuremberg, stay in Nuremberg
Day 5 - Tuesday 13 Oct - Train from Nuremberg to Munich, rent a car, drive to Neuschwanstein Castle, stay in Fussen/Hohenschwangau
Day 6 - Wednesday 14 Oct - Visit Garmisch (Zugspitze) and Oberammergau, drive to Salzburg, stay in Salzburg
Day 7 - Thursday 15 Oct - Salzburg, stay in Salzburg
Day 8 - Friday 16 Oct - Salzburg/Bad Ischl/Hallstat, stay in Salzburg
Day 9 - Saturday 17 Oct - Salzburg/Werfen, stay in Salzburg
Day 10 - Sunday 18 Oct - Drive from Salzburg to Frankfurt

Now, we have a couple of options for days 6 and 7

1. One option is to stay put in the Fussen area and just do a day-trip to visit Garmisch/Oberammergau during day 6 and return to Fussen at night before we leave for Salzburg on day 7.
2. Another option is that we spend day 6 in Garmisch/Oberammergau and spend the night in the Mittenwald area before departing for Salzburg on day 7.
3. A third option is that we spend the day in Garmisch/Oberammergau and drive to Innsbruck at night to walk around the town in the morning (day 7) before we leave for Salzburg.
3. And the last option is what is captured in the itinerary, i.e. spend the day in Garmisch/Oberammergau and drive to Salzburg on day 6 itself.

Would love any recommendations on optimizing the itinerary based on local experience. Is this an overkill? Are we making a huge mistake of missing Innsbruck if we don't go with the third option? Should we cancel Salzburg for Innsbruck? Any tips would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
