Hi all - planning a 16-day trip to Germany for my bf and I, end of Sept/early Oct. Hoping for all of our thoughts on this itinerary I have come up with. All thoughts / criticisms welcome! Note: we have to be in Munich Oct 2nd-3rd as we have a hotel booked for Oktoberfest. That's the only thing in stone.
Any re-arranging ideas to make this 'smoother' or more 'efficient' would be super helpful! I don't know if this sequence makes good sense. Thanks in advance!
Day 1 - Arrive Frankfurt by plane, spend day/overnight
Day 2 - Train to Cologne, overnight Cologne
Day 3 - Train to Frankfurt, pick up rental car, begin Romantic Road tour, Wurzberf afternoon, drive to Roth ob d T for overnight
Day 4 - Roth ob de T, Augsburg, then travel to Fussen for evening/overnight
Day 5 - Fussen all day, overnight
Day 6 - Train to Munich, all day Munich, stay overnight
Day 7 - Munich for 1/2 day, Train to Baden-Baden stay overnight
Day 8 - Baden-Baden and area all day and overnight
Day 9 - Travel to Bacharach area (near Koblenz) to tour Rhine Valley area
Day 10 - Rhine Valley area, river cruise, castle looking, overnight Bacharach
Day 11 - Travel to Dresden some time today, evening and overnight Dresden

Fly into Frankfurt, out of Berlin - open to all suggestions!
