First try - Germany itinerary in fall - 2 weeks - comments appreciated

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are starting to plan a trip to Germany for this fall. We've never been to Germany before and we plan to arrive Saturday, September 7th and depart Sunday, September 22nd. Our interests are historical and cultural sites, art and history museums, and exploring cities and cute towns. After scouring several guide books I've come up with a preliminary plan and would appreciate any comments on how reasonable it is. We prefer a trip that is somewhat fast in pace. Here's the plan so far:

Saturday, 7th - Arrive Berlin in the morning on flight from Detroit
Sunday, 8th - Berlin
Monday, 9th - Berlin
Tuesday, 10th - early departure from Berlin by train for Dresden (about 2.5 hrs), spend night in Dresden
Wednesday, 11th - train to Nuremberg, spend night
Thursday, 12th - Nuremberg, spend night
Friday, 13th - early departure by train for Munich (< 2 hours), spend night in Munich
Saturday, 14th - Munich
Sunday, 15th - Munich
Monday, 16th - Munich
Tuesday, 17th - depart Munich early by car for Garmisch-Partenkirchen (about 1 hour), Zugspitze, stay night
Wednesday, 18th - Hohenschwangau, Neuschwanstein, overnight in Fussen?
Thursday,19th - depart for Rothenburg ob der Tauber, stay night
Friday, 20th - Rothenburg ob der Tauber
Saturday, 21st - depart Rothenburg early, stop in Wurzberg, arrive Frankfurt
Sunday, 22nd - flight home

While in Munich we'd like to do a day trip to Salzburg and also see Dachau but I'm wondering if that will be too much. Perhaps we should skip Salzburg? Also we'd like to visit Potsdam while in Berlin but I understand that one of the major sights there is closed Monday and another one is closed Tuesday. That means we'd have to go on Sunday and I'm not sure it's reasonable to take a day trip out of the city the first full day we're there.

So overall does this look somewhat reasonable? Thanks!
