I think your itinerary looks great. The only thing I will comment on is that we made a stop over in Liechtenstein on the way from Fuessen to Appenzell, and regretted it. It was a little out of our way, but the country is tiny, there is not much to see or look at, and the scenery is prettier in the other areas you will be in. Not to mention we got a little lost trying to get out of the country. Still, I did pay the money for the passport stamp, which is kind of fun. If it is on your way, it's fine, but I personally wouldn't go out of my way to visit.

I think that you should make a small change. If you drive from Fussen to Lindau, why do you want to return to Fussen. From Lindau you can drive down to Licthenstein on your way to Switzerland, if you keep on the autoroutes heading down. You are in Germany, then it jumps across the border to Austria and then to Licthenstein-across and you're onto the Swiss autoroute.

Then stopping at Appenzell you could have a lunch with this famous stinky cheese. Actually, this is good cheese but many people think it's hard to smell. The Swiss make jokes about the people in Appenzell, saying that they're small people. So, if you visit to this village, take care where you're walking. They can be missed since they're not noticed.

The drive from Fussen to Lindau is beautiful and staying an evening at lindau would be worthwhile.

Have a good trip.
