Hello all. My Husband and I have flights booked in / out of Munich Sept 5th through the 20th for a total of 15 nights. We booked Munich because we got an excellent price on non stops flights from the U.S. We have both been to Europe before and we would like to take the train and not rent a car and have come up with the following itinerary. What I am wondering is if anyone has any insight into how easy it is to take the train to and from the towns below included in our agenda, or if you would strongly recommend bypassing the train and renting a car in any instance? We do not mind some longer travel days. After looking at all train schedules, it seems they are affordable and we could get them when in Europe instead of booking in advance with the exception of the train from Innsbruck to Desanzano and out of Desanzano to Lucerne (we will save a good amount of money by booking this train in advance). Thank you in advance for your feedback.
