Hello! Would love feedback on how to plan our spring trip. We have 12 days on the ground (14 total, but 2 are for travel)
We fly in and out of Munich (can't change). Our initial plan, was just to explore Munich, Bavarian Alps (3-4 days) and then maybe a day or so in Austria (Salzburg and Hallstatt). Now the group is talking Prague, and from the US, I just have a hard time grasping how far away everything is.
We will be renting a car, and love to drive. That being said, we don't plan to have the car during our time in Munich. So we would like to plan to explore Munich either at the beginning (getting car after we've toured Munich) or at the end of the trip, so we can return car and then explore Munich on foot. (Did this in Dublin, worked out great).
Now....how to plan this time?! Is 3-4 days in Bavarian Alps too long? Would love to stay at least 2 nights in each place, as we travel with kids. Can we see most of Bavarian Alps from a stay in one location? Stay in Fussen?
Hear a lot about Rothenburg, but its north of Munich and not really "on the way" anywhere. Any advise you can provide as to how to lay this out is greatly appreciated! We are a traveling family, with two kiddos (6 and 10). They are GREAT travelers. We love to get out, hike and hang with the locals. Not necessarily museum goers. :) TIA!
