Itinerary help between Munich and Black Forest in September

Jump to last reply

Where should we stop or stay over between Munich and Black Forrest?

Garmisch and/or anywhere else? We have been to Fussen, Innsburg, Neuschwanstein Castle, Salzburg in the past. I pressume Murren is too much driving for a 9 day trip.

We are arriving at Munich and flying out from Frankfurt. Will pick up rental car after city visit in Munich. Would like to meet friend for dinner at Mainz. Other than it, we are open to recommendation.

Our current draft:

Day 1 Arrive Munich (Flight arrive at 1:25pm) [Sleep Munich]

Day 2 Munich [Sleep Munich]

Day 3 Munich [Sleep Munich] (Maybe day trip to Herrenchiemsee New Palace or Schönau am Königssee)

Day 4 Garmisch AND/OR ? [Sleep ?] (Drive 1 hr + ? hr)

Day 5 Black Forest [Sleep Barden-Barden or Black Forest] (Drive 4.5 or 5 hr if last sleep in Garmisch)

Day 6 Baden-Baden [Sleep Baden-Baden] (Drive 1 hr)

Day 7 Heidelberg Castle, Rhine Valley Bacharach [Sleep Mainz or Bacharach] (Drive Heidelberg 1 hr + Bacharach 1.5 hr + Mainz 1 hr)

Day 8 Would you recommend more Middle Rhine Valley or Frankfurt/ Mainz? [Sleep Mainz]

Day 9 Mainz (Flight at 5pm from FRA)

Trying to decide also if we should skip more middle Rhine Valley with cruise on day 8 given we did cruise from Vienna and Bratislava. By comparison we enjoy more scenery, alphine view, charming town (My favorite from the past is Hallstatt and cannot have enough of it :) ), museum/castle, city tour more than the cruise.

Any advice would be very much appreciated.
