Bavaria & Dolomites

Jump to last reply

Hi all - looking for some good advice for a trip we are planning mid to late May of 2015. We have 9 nights. The plan is to fly into Munich and grab a train to Salzburg. Spend 3 nights in that area (including visiting Berchtesgaden), rent a car and drive into the Dolomites for 3 nights. Thinking of the Val Gardena area as a base, but am open to recommendations. From Italy, we'd drive to Innsbruck, drop the car, & train to Mittenwald for 2 nights. Spend the last afternoon/evening in Munich before flying back to the US the next morning.

Picking up and dropping off the car in Munich probably makes more sense, but we find driving in countries where we don't the language to be somewhat stressful. Plus we enjoy the trains. Having a car seems fairly necessary for the Dolomites, however. Suggestions are welcome, and we are open to changes, keeping in mind that the main goal of this trip is Alpine Austria & Italy. Thank you!
