So I’m starting to solidify my specific plans. How does this itinerary sound.
Saturday May 23: fly into Munich arriving Sunday morning
Sunday: arrive and take train to Füssen explore Füssen and surrounds. Sleep in Füssen
Monday: tour Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein, bus to Reutte and Ehrenberg. Sleep in Füssen.
Tuesday: rent car and visit Linderhof, Ettal Monastery, Wieskirche, and Zugspitze then back to Munich. Explore Munich. Sleep in Munich.
Wednesday: Dachau, Residenz, English Gardens, Hofbrauhous. Sleep Munich.
Thursday: Zoo, Museums (Pinokothek der Moderne open late). Sleep Munich
Friday: train to Oberammergau. Passion Play. Sleep Oberammergau. This in the only day set in stone as the ticket is purchased.
Saturday: on to Austria. I haven’t put this part together yet.
I know I’m cramming quite a bit into two and a half day in Munich but I’m having a hard time giving up anything in the Alps. I know I could swap Munich and Füssen but it seems a hassle to get to Oberammergau by bus and it doesn’t seem like a good idea to arrive there by car during the Passion Play. I’d love to hear suggestions.
