Munich and....???

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning on going to Oktoberfest in Munich in 2018 with some family and friends. We don't have set dates yet as some family members are waiting to book on miles. I have been trying to do some searching on what we would like to do. I think we are planning on spending two days in the festival with our friends and then we are breaking off and exploring Munich and I would like to visit Dachau, neuschwanstein castle, zugspitze....we usually like to do one thing a day and then explore the city and restaruants/bars. I'm thinking we will be in Munich for at least a week. I think we are planning on being in Europe for at least 10 days (we can be a bit flexible). We wanted to go somewhere from Munich as well and try to get another location in but we are a bit stuck on where to head next. People have suggested Prague, Salzburg (Hallstatt), Vienna, etc...I've watched some travel shows on these places, but not sure they call to me or my husband. I have only been to Europe once, Italy, and I think I'm having a hard time comparing expectations to that trip. I have watched info on the Mosel River Valley and that seems appealing to me (Burg Eltz looks amazing), but not so much my husband....(he is also not being decisive but says he will go wherever). Amsterdam is appealing I think because of the bike culture and history (Anne Frank). I seem to be drawn to historical sites, ruins, national parks, etc. My husband has mentioned Lake como after Munich as well.
I guess I am looking for advice on if our Munich portion seems on track with what to see and do there? Is it easy to travel by train to other sites farther away (Amsterdam or Lake Como)? Or is it a better use of time to explore more of Bavaria? By train or car?
I know this probably seems scattered but would appreciate some advice.
