Munich Trip Plan


We are a group of 3 guys landing in Munich (by air) by 9PM on the 28th of March. We are leaving Munich (to Frankfurt) on the 1st of April 2014 at 9AM (by air).

We have planned to visit Paris, Venice, Austria, Salzburg, Innsbruck and back to Munich by 31st so that we can roam around munich the whole day before we take our flight to Frankfurt on 1st April.

Will this plan work? Can someone suggest me ?

Zero problem to spent all this time in Munich. But what you could do

1 day for Munich

day trip to Salzburg

day trip to the Bavarian Alps

e.g. Garmisch-Partenkirchen/Zugspitze/Mittenwald




or Füssen/Neuschwanstein



You could these day trips cheap using Bayern Tickets (EUR 31 for 3 persons per day)


DB timetable


Start: München Hbf (you can however just use "M" as well)

Destination: Salzburg Hbf

and for Neuschwanstein Castle

Destination: Hohenschwangau, Schwangau (Schlösser)

and select as means of transport "only local transport".

You would do the day trips best on Saturday and Sunday as on these days the Bayern Ticket is valid all day. Bayern Ticket cover besides all regional trains (RB, RE, ALX, Meridian) in Bavaria also all local public transport in Munich (S-Bahn, U-Bahn, trams and buses) and the buses from Füssen to Hohenschwangau. The buses in Salzburg are not covered.

btw, you are from India I presume and I also presume that your kilometres are precisely the same as in Europe.

Theres 1100 of those kilometres to get from Paris, over or around the alps (largest mountain range in Europe), to Venice. On indian railways that'd be a 24hour journey. Here somewhat less but its still a very long journey.

And its 830km from Munich to Paris. And 540 from Venice to Munich.

To be fair, you could fly between Munich->Paris->Venice->Munich but the cost would be insane.

Well, to be prescise its 2260Euro (3100 Us dollars) to do this routing by plane with a flight on the mornings of the 29th, 30th and 31st allowing a full day in Paris and Venice and Munich.

(so you can see why we were wondering if you were joking about considering doing this)

Just a thought..have you tried approaching Kesari.in or Star Tours. That is really the only way I can think you can cover several European cities in a short span.

Thanks a lot for the reply .

While I had my own doubts while I posted this joke( :) ) in this forum , my intention was to cover the maximum distance/places possible within the 3 days we've got. we booked our tickets and then started planning this (which I know is kinda working backwards and silly too ) . We didnt had an option cos, we had to be back in India on the 2nd of April .

I am ok with skipping Venice. Can I cover Munich (1 day) Paris, Austria(Salsburg/Innsbruck) within this 29,30,31 that I have on hand?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Given the distance between these cities, you will spend most of your time travelling across countries rather than enjoying or experiencing any of these beautiful cities. And that too at an exorbitant price. Most of the cities on your list have lots to see and do. 3 days is usually just sufficient to see just the major attractions and some. Best would be to pick a country / city and explore that in the days you have.

and don't forget that every time you change destinations you lose at least half a day - check out of hotel, get to airport, fly, collect luggage, get to new hotel, check in

you are giving each of these cities half a day - hardly worth the expense.

do as abalada suggests - stay in Munich and actually see something of the city rather than just being able to boast to your friends that you have been there & ticked the city off a list.

Wow what an itinerary, the best you will be able to do is Munich and Salzburg. Should have planned on a flight out of Paris so you could have flown from Salzburg to Paris on the way home, and stopped over for a day.

rprashk of Banglore, you should trust your gut feeling that what you can't cover these places in three days. If this is your first time to travel, allocate also time for getting lost in places you mentioned especially Paris and Munich. Warning: there are plenty of pickpockets in Paris, it could ruin your vacation on an unescorted trip on your first travel. Here is my suggestion and you could enjoy your vacation at the most economical way. You have to adjust also your objectives that you have to spend money in order to see more places. First, change your booking destination start early booking to London then join the tour with Cosmos that starts in London and ends in Paris (I am giving a free advertisement for Cosmos tour, which we used them before on our first of Europe.) you will accomplish half of what you wished to see plus visiting England, Belgium and Switzerland.


Sit and relax on the bus and enjoy your first trip out of your area.
