My Way Alpine Tour Laundry question

We are excited to go on this tour this July. We will do a few days in London before the tour and are planning on packing light as Rick Steves strongly recommends. That being said, with the hiking involved and possible rainy weather is there a place where we can do our laundry? I'm thinking Fussen would be the place.

Hi there! We were on this tour in late September/October of 2017 and it is a wonderful tour with spectacular scenery! You will have a great time. We both packed light. We arrived in Salzburg several days early via train from Frankfurt and I recall there was a drop laundry facility just down the street from our hotel (Hotel Hofwirt.) We found this very convenient as we wanted to start the tour with clean jeans/heavier slacks that just don't sink wash well. I also recall that our lovely hotel (Cavallini D'Oro) in Castelrotto had laundry facilities - very small but functional. We also used the laundry facility on the main road next to the hostel in Lauterbrunnen (we were socked in by fog which stuck around until about 2:00 pm) where we had quite the amusing time with some travelers from Australia - I figure that if I'm going to do laundry on the road I'm going to make it an experience! Be prepared with whatever coins you need as I don't recall any change machines anywhere on any of our tours - it's a good idea to have more than you think you need. I can't provide any information about Fussen but I'm sure there are laundry facilities there. Your guide will help you. Have a terrific time!

Their are a couple coin operated machines at the Hostel on the main street
in Lauterbrunnen about a block from the train station that I have used a couple
times and will be there again in two months staying across the street at the Hotel
Oberland.
