Thank you so much for all of the help that you've given us. To reiterate my wife, my almost 3 y/o daughter and I are visiting Germany for 3 weeks. This is the last leg of my Berlin, Nuremberg vacation and I wanted to get some thoughts. I was convinced that public transportation would be easier since our daughter can sleep in the bus or train as opposed to the car, it's cheaper and doesn't really waste much time compared to car. Here is our new itinerary.
train from Munich at 8:45am arrive at Salzburg at 10:45
Castle and Monchsberg (any tips for where is the best spot for photography?
Mozart birthplace maybe?
October 3rd (Berchtesgaden day trip by bus, thoughts?)
Berchtesgen Salt's mine (is the salt mine better than Hallstatt salt mine)
daytrip to Halstatt bus on the way there, train to come back
Konigsee lake (I would've loved to do this on Oct 3rd but I don't think there will be enough time)
train to GA-PA (if time enjoy Eisbee)
pick up car
October 6th (day trip to palaces)
Drive to Neuschweisten early
October 7th (Day trip to Mittenwalk)
Mittenwald (really interested i the Hummock Medows)
Option between Zugspitze or linderhof and Etal Monastery
Leave for Munich at night by train
Return to Washington DC from Munich
A couple of questions. And an option. Marienbrucke is closed. My main purpuse for going to Neuschweisten is photography, and with the bridge being close, would it still be worth visiting? @russ you suggested in the past Werfen and Prien if Neuschweisten not recommended, I might add those 2 and stay in Salzburg area instead of GA-PA. I would have to miss the Overamerggau area and GA-PA.
Any other recommendations or substitutions? Thanks so much in advanced.
