I’m in preliminary stages of planning our next trip to Bavaria and I’m looking for 1 more stop I think
A little background. It will just be my wife and I and we are very fit. We will travel everywhere by public transportation. And when it comes to trains, we prefer to use the RE over the faster trains, because we use the fantastic Bayern Ticket and also because we aren’t going to travel very far. We will start in Munich, and be coming in September with the overall intention to end up back in Munich for Oktoberfest. We have been to this area a couple times and are familiar with how to use the trains, trams, buses, ticket machines etc. Places we have already been to include Füssen, Schwangau, München, Erding, Mittenwald, G-P, Berchtesgaden, Hallstatt, Vienna, Salzburg, and Innsbruck.
We want to spend about 15 days total and really want to concentrate in Bavaria. What we are looking at now is flying into Munich and get right on the train to:
Reit im Winkl – for 2 days.
Bad Reichtenhall – for 2 days.
Berchtesgaden – for 3 days.
Munich – for 5 days.
So what I’m looking for is 1 more town to spend 2-3 days in along this journey. If it’s just a 2 day town, we will add another day to Berchtesgaden. I would like to stay in Bavaria but it’s not absolutely necessary. I’m trying to stay under the 2-3 hour journey for train/bus rides. Of course we would like to be in the Alps. There doesn’t have to be a lot to do in this town, we aren’t museum people, maybe an attraction or 2, or a great brewery would be even better. Something like Berchtesgaden would be perfect.
Do you have any suggestions for me to check into??
