Weekend from Frankfurt to Munich

My wife and I will arrive in Frankfurt on a Friday morning in late March, and have the weekend free until Monday for a 3-day business meeting in Munich. Afterwards we will head down to Italy to join our friends. I need some help to fill in the 3 day weekend.

1) Take train direct to Munich and stay there for the weekend (maybe some day trips).
2) Take train thru Munich to Salzburg for the weekend, and get back to Munich on Sunday evening.
3) Take train to Wurzburg, and make day trips to Bamberg and Nurnburg, before getting to Munich on Sunday evening.

Keep in mind we need to recover from jet legs (from West Coast US), what will be your advise? We have been to Berlin, Vienna and Prague, but not this part of Germany/Austria. Thanks,

Perhaps it is just me, but I would not want to get on a train and travel somewhere right after I landed from an overseas flight. I would stay in Frankfurt overnight. There is certainly plenty to see in this city. Go to a nice hotel, go out and about and sightsee a bit, visit some of our historic sites, have a lovely dinner and retire early. Take your train the next day to wherever you would like to go.

You will have to catch a train (Sbahn) whether you go into Frankfurt or Würzburg. There are good connections to both. I would take the Würzburg option (have taken) unless you wish to see Frankfurt.

Würzburg is one of my favorite cities in Germany, so I may be a bit prejudice in the matter.

We have visited Bamberg and Nürnberg in the last couple of years. All three towns still show their age beautifully. It is a part of Germany that I lived in for three years and still love returning for a visit.

Regards, Gary

You can take the ICE train straight from the airport to Munich. I've done it many times. It will take a little over 3 hours. You could day-trip to Neuschwanstein castle by train. It is not one of the oldest castles, but it is pretty and the views from the bridge are worth the trip. It is open on Sundays.

But, the S-bahn into Frankfurt only takes 11 min.

One can also take a taxi for a bit more comfort.

I think Frankfurt is worth seeing.
