The fastest train connection to a location in the Black forest is 4 1/2 hours. I don't think that is a very good day trip from Munich. The Alps, much more dramatic than the Black Forest, are just 1 hour or so south of Munich on the train. Garmisch-Partenkirchen is 1 hour and 20 minutes on frequent direct trains.

Less than three whole days? Time is too short and the Black Forest too far away. If you are coming from Switzerland, Oberstdorf, just up from Bodensee (Lindau), is a good place to experience the Alps, better IMO than Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

Oberstdorf is nestled in the Alps at the top of the Illertal in the Oberallgäu region of Bavaria. Right next to it is the entrance to the Austrian valley, Kleinwalsertal.

Oberstdorf is about 2½ hrs from Munich by regional train (Bayern-Ticket). I'd consider spending both nights in Oberstdorf and coming into Munich on the last morning for a day of sightseeing.

I'm Confused.

How can you be coming from Copenhagen if you are coming from Switzerland? Didn't you start your question by talking about Switzerland? I know I'm old fashioned and old, but punctuation and appropriate capital letters make reading so much easier.

How does Copenhagen relate to Switzerland?

Are you coming from Copenhagen to Switzerland and then to Munich? How are you getting to Munich? How much of that first day is actually available? When does your train arrive?

Perhaps Switzerland was a previous trip? That's how I understood the query.

With only three days, and nature is a priority, then spend it all in the Alps, either in Garmisch-Partenkirchen or Oberstdorf. Unless you have the benefit of a short-term weather forecast, weather in the Alps is too fickle. Give yourself enough a chance for good weather by spreading your stay across a few days, rather than trying to pigeon-hole it in advanced.
