train vs car for munique, Salzburg, vienna and prague,Berlin

Hello, we are a couple of 45 yrs. We will start our trip in Frankfurt. We are renting a car at the airport to start the Romantic Road. We sleep in small cties at the roamantic road for two nights. Then we drive to Munich. We are not sure if we should return the car in Munique, After that we go to Salzburg, Vienna, Prague and Berlin. My husband loves to drive, and we like having the car to be able to stop on our way. We are not sure whether we should return the car in Munique or when we arrive in Berlin.

Is it easy to drive in Vienna and Prague, or the car is not necessary at all?

Thanks in advance.

The problem with most big cities is parking and the cost of it , you will not really want a car in Vienna and Prague. For Prague there will be restrictions on taking a car there,so you need to clear it with the rental company first.

Thanks for the reply. It might be easier to rent a car just for the romantic road, and then return the car in Munich.

We read that renting a car in Frankfurt airport is expensive. Where should we pick up the car then?

We are starting a research to check out the different agencies. We heard about Sixt, Hertz, Dollar. Any suggestion?
