Car rental in Munich, driving south to Mittenwald

Jump to last reply

Hello again, this time wanting to ask a final question or two before clicking "reserve" on our Sixt car rental. We'll be picking a car up in Munich and driving south, staying for two nights in Mittenwald, then seeing castles and driving on to Rothenburg for two nights. We'll go to Bamberg on the last car rental day and drop the car there, spend the night, then take the direct train back to Berlin.

Cowboy1968 has offered sage advice as usual, telling us that it isn't too bad to drive out of Munich but that as an alternative we could take the S-Bahn to Pullach and rent the car there, making for an easier drive away from Munich. So we're torn. I'd love to avoid dragging the bags onto and off the S-Bahn, up the steps at Pullach (only stairs there) and like the convenience of renting close to our hotel (either Train Station or Bayerischer Hof, just a few blocks away.

Anyone else have experience driving out of Munich (as a novice, that is?). Traffic isn't a problem as long as it's not confusing and we're stuck in the wrong lane and end up going the wrong way and having a breakdown (and I'm not talking about the car here...). Opinions? Take the extra subway ride and save ourselves the stress of Munich driving, or get the car in town and have a relatively straightforward drive south?
