We will be in Germany from June 5th to June 10th (will stay in Salzburg, Austria on the 10th) and are booked at a hotel in Stuttgart for the first 3nts. We are not at all interested in the car museums in Stuttgart, and primarily want to use it as a base for day trips, so I was hoping to get some feedback on our itinerary to see if it sounds doable without being too frantic or exhausting ourselves.
Here is what we are thinking:
5-7 June: 3nts Stuttgart with:
*day trip to Strasbourg
*day trip to Lindau/possibly Tubingen (add Neushwanstein in here either before or after Lindau?) and hopefully a cruise on Lake Constance in Lindau
8th - leave Stuttgart early in the morning and drive the Castle Road from Heidelberg to Rothenberg ob Tauber - stay 1nt Rothenberg ob Tauber - go on the Night Watchmans Tour
9th - leave Rothenberg ob Tauber and drive to either Fussen (if it makes more sense to do Neuchwanstein here instead of as part of Lindau day trip?) - or straight on to Garmisch-Parkentingen - stay 1nt GP.
10th - drive to Salzburg w/ stop at Eagles Nest before checking into hotel (or should we go straight to Salzburg and visit Eagles Nest on the way out of Salzburg/on the way to Vienna?)
11th - drive to Vienna; spend 3nts Vienna
If Neuschwanstein can be combined with Lindau (or would this be too busy of a day), should we spend an extra night in Rothenberg and skip GP? Ideally, we would not have three 1nt stays in a row, but it is so hard to fit everything in that we want to see!
Thanks so much for any feedback!
