Help needed with Munich lodging and car rental!

Jump to last reply

So after months of planning we've finally nailed down our itinerary and secured apartments in Berlin and Prague and hotels in Mittenwald, Rothenburg, and Bamberg. I'm stuck for our three nights in Munich however.

I would much prefer an apartment with a washer as these three nights fall right in the middle of our 16-day trip and we've always enjoyed having this sort of accommodation. It certainly makes us able to pack much lighter than we might otherwise. But I have had a much harder time using our typical resources...vrbo, homeaway, etc....and even justngoogling...than I typically do in finding any sort of apartment in or near Alstadt. I wrote to a couple of hotels recommended in a popular guidebook...Pension Lindner and Pension am Jakobsplatz - no luck there either.

I'm going to check some other resources and send out other email to hotels in Alstadt. Do any of you have hotel recommendations or, even better, ideas for locating an apartment? If we don't find one in Alstadt, is there another recommended section of the city that would be convenient for an apartment? We may take a day trip by train to Salzburg so would want connections to the main train station to be relatively easy.

On a related topic, we plan to pick up a rental car when we leave Munich to head to Mittenwald area. Do you recommend picking up at the train station or the airport? Is it nightmarish to drive out of the city if we pick it up at the train station; would we be better off taking public transportation to the airport and getting it there?

Finally - does anyone know if we can drop the car off in Bamberg?
