Where else are you going? You could add two days in the Berner Oberland. I can't really make more suggestions based on the limited info in your post.

And how are you going? Are you driving or taking the train? How many in your party? Are you mountain-seekers, lake-seekers, or city folks? The more information you give us, the better we can help you!

I will be driving from Mindelheim, which is right outside Munich, to Grindelwald. Here's a Fodorite recommended route. It passes thru Lucerne. You might want to consider taking the route in the opposite direction, and asking where a good place along the way to stop/sightsee.

s is right about the passes (hi s - glad to see you posting here). I don't think, however, that it makes sense for you to drive deeper into the Alps (too far) so you might not get a chance to drive these higher passes.

I have driven from Dresden to Lauterbrunnen in one day and did not buy the vignette in Switzerland - the smaller roads are just too scenic! (and no, you don't need to buy the vignette for Austria since you don't drive on motorways there)

I recommend following route:

In Germany drive from Mindelheim via Kempten, Immenstadt and Sonthofen to Fischen where you take the pass route via Obermaiselstein and Balderschwang into Austria. In Austria drive via Dornbirn to Altstätten in Switzerland (take the minor roads).

From Altstätten drive up to Stoss (which is a low pass) and further via Gais (great views of Mt. Säntis) to Appenzell. Have lunch somewhere in the area.

From there I would continue via Hundwil, Lichtensteig to Rapperswil. Cross Lake Zurich on the dam, drive via Rothenthurm to Art-Goldau, Küssnacht am Rigi to Luzern. Continue via Sarnen and Brünig Pass to Interlaken, Grindelwald.

You don't need to buy a vignette for this route. The drive is quite scenic, with low passes, offering views of the Alps, and many lakes. Please don't make too many photo stops to save time
