Germany Questions

Jump to last reply

Greetings and please be patient with my too many possible trip ideas. I recently got great feedback on a possible trip to Brittany, and the comments helped me to basically eliminate Brittany from the short list.

Now we are thinking of Germany, and here are the issues.

This is a FF award trip from the US. We are thinking of flying into Munich and visiting Berchtesgaden and on to Austria for Salzburg and Hallstatt.

The issue is that we would have to return to the US via Frankfurt, because of availability on the award tickets. This would be in early August and we would hope to have 11 or 12 nights on the ground.

We could train to Frankfurt from Munich (or somewhere else) or if there is an attractive route, perhaps drive back into Germany and all the way to Frankfurt.

In Germany and Austria we want to explore beautiful scenery, see castles and churches, and pretty towns. From what I've read, August seems to be a good time to do this, but I could be warned away if there is a big downside to that time of year.

Is it reasonable to do this if we have to get to Frankfurt to get home, given the time we have? Should we do a loop south and east from Munich and return there to take a train to Frankfurt, or just keep a car and drive in a large sort of loop from Munich to Austria to Frankfurt? Hallstatt is as far into Austria as we would go.

Looking forward to reading what you have to say.
