My husband and I would like to visit Germany in January 2008 for about 7 nights. I really want to spend a day touring the Neuschwanstein Castle and the surrounding area. We also would like to visit Salzburg for another day trip.
Do you think we should use Munich as our "home base" and just take day tours out of there OR should be stay in Munich for 5 nights and stay in Salzburg for 2 nights? Any other ideas for a second location instead of Salzburg? How about a nice area in northern Italy or Switzerland? We originally wanted a Munich and Vienna or Prague package, but we would have to fly between the locations, which we don't want to do. We would like to take the train.
