Bavaria/Austrian Alps/ and ?? (Strasbourg??)

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone. We just booked round trip flights to and from Frankfurt for the second half of September. We wanted to fly into Munich but the ticket prices were much more favorable using the Frankfurt airport. We will pick up a car at the airport for the trip.

Anyway, I wanted to post an itinerary and hope to see some comments. We have visited Munich and Salzburg before, almost 20 years ago, and did a day trip to Neuschwanstein. We want to spend a couple of days seeing the Bavarian castles more leisurely and also see a bit more of the Austrian Alps. Since we have to return from Frankfurt, I thought perhaps we should take a detour towards the end into France and check out Strasbourg, which we have never seen. We toured Heidelberg, the Rhine and the Mosel Valleys somewhat recently.

Here is the proposed itinerary, and I would appreciate any thoughts, ideas or whatever:

Sept 13 arrive Frankfurt, stop in Wurzburg or Rothenburg overnight
Sept 14, 15 & 16 Munich
Sept 17, 18 & 19 Salzburg
Sept 20 Innsbruck
Sept 21, 22 and 23 Reutte
Sept 24, 25 & 26 Strasbourg (drive time from Reutte = approx 4- hours)
Sept 27 in or near Frankfurt (drive time from Strasbourg = 2 hrs 18 min)
Sept 28 depart from Frankfurt airport
