So my wife and I are planning out honeymoon for early September and are getting a bit overwhelmed with flushing out the itinerary.
We're planning on flying into Munich and will not be renting a car. We are going to spend 3-4 days there and then want to head to the Alps to spend a couple of nights at a slower pace, hiking during the day and relaxing in the evenings.
Originally, I thought Innsbruck would be the best choice due to the ease of getting there from Munich but in reading and researching more, it seems like it is just too big for what we're hoping for. We're open to other, smaller villages in Austria or crossing over into Italy and seeing the Dolomites.
I've looked at Hall in Austria as well as Ortisei in Italy. My eyes have started to glaze over at this point with reading about different villages and towns in the region that make a good place to spend a couple of nights.
The main thing I'm hoping to find is a place to stay where it is easy to get onto the trails from town without a vehicle. From reading about Ortisei, it sounds like that is possible with the lifts available from the town itself. We'd also prefer to have a few decent restaurant options just in case we don't have boarding available wherever we end up staying. I'm also trying to keep the travel from Munich manageable so we don't eat up too much time in transit.
Any tips of towns I should look at that seem to fit this bill? Thanks!
