Trip: (two couples traveling together)
Seattle to Munich, plane arrives at 1 PM Wednesday. Rent car and drive down to Schwangau for 4 nights as a base for visiting castles, Fussen, Reutte, etc.
Sunday: O'gau and Passion Play, maybe Ettal Monastary
Garmische-Partenkirken-2 nights, it's closer to O'gau for after the play. Lots of options for one day in the area.
But, also thinking about staying all 6 nights in Reutte as it is kind of central. Thoughts?
Drive up to Dachau for the 11 AM English tour, then drop the car off in Munich and take train to Salzburg for 5 nights/4 days with 1-2 day trips.
Train to Zurich but stay in Luzern 2 nights. Could stay in Zurich, but it isn't as pretty and it's much more expensive!
Fly out of Zurich to Seattle, departing Zurich on Tuesday at 2 PM.
Any suggestions for improvements or refinements? Any must-see spots for us? Warnings or suggestions?
