Bus from Berlin to Munich

I'm planning on traveling from Berlin to Munich this summer. I'm considering a flight, but thought the bus might be a great way for me to see the scenery. Is it worth it? Is the drive full of windy roads (as in curvy, not of blowing winds)?

The buses will of course stick to the autobahns. You'll see a great variety of noise protection walls.

Note that the buses depart from Berlin ZOB (central bus station). Which is however not central. You'll have to calculate 20-30 minutes from central Berlin to get there.

train is also an alternative. Faster and more scenic.

We took the train which was a relaxing and interesting way to see more of Germany. We stopped in Nuremberg on the way thru, staying in the pretty & interesting aldstadt.

The trains are much faster - buses are bound to a speed limit of 100 kph while trains run at up to 250 kph - not dependent on traffic, and more comfortable than any bus. Going by train will take about 6 hours, so you'd have time for a stopover on the way, for example in Erfurt, Bamberg, or Nuremberg. The bus ride will fill most of the day.
