How many days in Fussen

Hi everybody

We are going to spend Christmas in Tirol. After that we are thinking of staying in Fussen from 30/12/2009 to 3/1/2010. We want to have time to visit both castles and have new yaers eve there. Do you think it is a good idea or should we change our plan and stay in Fussen only for a couple of days?

Do you also have any suggestion for a one day trip from Fussen using public transport?

Thank you all

Fuessen is nice, but not 4 nights nice. You can do the castles in one day from Fuessen. Suggest a change of pace town. How about the Garmisch area?

Agree with prior post, day in Fussen maybe day and a half. Spend New Year's in Fussen then head over to Garmisch....Although I would rather spend NYE in Garmisch, personal preference. If you stay in Fussen I would do a day trip to Wieskirche, Oberammergau, Linderhof and Garmisch if time allows.

I agree with the others. Fuessen is nice but 2 (maybe 3 nights) is sufficient. Both castles can easily be seen in a day. If you had a reservation for the first tour, you could possibly be done by noon. Day trips... agree with Linderhof, Wieskirche although I'd "re-locate" to Mittenwald (I think Garmisch would be too similar to Fuessen) to see Ettal, Oberammergau and Garmisch.

I would second for Mittenwald- these frescoe painted houses are so elegant and since you will visit Fuessen you could skip Garmisch. I don't know however if there is any public transport for this route.

Yes, Mittenwald is a lovely place, a wonderful spot. But it's not wonderful for day-trip excursions to Oberammergau, Linderhof, Ettal, etc.

It IS wonderful for winter walking, ascending peaks by cable cars, horse-drawn carriage rides, an excursion to Innsbruck, and soaking up the Alpine atmosphere.

Have fun!

Füssen itself has a medieval castle in the town centre which is well worth a visit.

While in the area we also visited Kochel am See, Murnau and Bernried (Buchheim collection) for the Expressionist paintings.
