berchtergaden to lindau on the alpine road.

Hi,

me and my fiance are planning a short 9 day road trip in europe and love the idea of driving the alpine road to take in the breathtaking castles and lakes. The big problem we have is time. We will only have 2-3 days. Day 1 would start from Berchtergaden and by the end of day 3 we will need to be back in Calais.

Is it possible to do the road in this time whilst taking in some of the sights?

and if so, what are the best places to visit and towns to stop at overnight?

Any help would be massivly appreciated.

I regularly do the drive from Calais to Bavaria. You will be able to reach Calais in one day, although it will involve nine hours of driving. Check out route on R A C Route Planner, but don't forget to click the box for E.E.C countries.

One option would be to travel just from Berchtesgaden till Füssen - where the castles are - on the German Alpine Road and from Füssen starting on the autobahn A7 northbound towards Calais.

Further castles you could do en route with acceptable small detours

Another route planner for this sort of run is a viamichelin.co.uk.

Doesn't make it any quicker, though!

Hi,

thanks for the links and advice. I have been looking at the alpine road in a little more detail and would agree with your suggestion of traveling Berchtesgaden to Fussen.

Would you advise to stay in Berchtesgaden the night before i travel or Salzburg? i will be traveling from Berlin the day before driving the road.
