I'm just starting to plan our vacation for early September of next year and wanted to get some advice on locations. We are a young couple and plan to spend 2 weeks in Germany and Austria. I was thinking of picking 4 base cities so we aren't changing hotels too much. We will only be using public transportation so we need places that are easy to get to and day trip from. We like to have plenty to do in the area and are most interested in history, scenery, and activities that we wouldn't get to do at home (US). So far for the base cities I was thinking Munich, Salzburg, and Garmisch or Fussen (or somewhere in that area so we can see Ludwig's castles, go up into the mountains, and relax with some beautiful views). Nothing is booked yet so I have flexibility for where we fly in and out of. Does anyone have any advice on a fourth area to stay in and why would you pick that? I appreciate any opinions. Looking through my guidebooks just has me wanting to go everywhere.
