Looking for itenerary advise Switzerland, Germany, Italy

Jump to last reply

We are planning our first trip to Europe together. We are shooting for September 2017. I have gone through so many iterations for itinerary I thought I'd seek the advise of the well traveled in a forum:) We are setting aside +/-10-14 days. Right now the itinerary looks like this: Munich for a few days to see nearby Castles and Abbeys. My husband is an avid home brewer and wants to experience the beer culture not necessarily Oktoberfest but the abbey/monasteries that still brew. Then I'd like to travel to Switzerland, specifically Lucerne, Locarno (Lavertezzo), and Zermatt. I need advise on whether it is feasible to go to all these places or to skip some and how to travel (car or train). Then I planned to go from Zermatt to either Milan and Venice or Turin and Cirque Terre. One of the other iterations of this trip included Budapest but eliminated Italy. Any opinions or advice on how long to stay, other destinations, or places that we should skip would be greatly appreciated.
