Hello, all, probably a last minute impulse, but I am thinking (or dreaming) of going to Bavaria / Austria next month (i.e. maybe 14 days from 13 to 27 October). Currently, my idea is to do a loop from my start point Munich: (1) east to Salzberg area, (2) south & west to Innsbruck, (3) back north to the Garmisch-Partenkirchen Fussen areas, (4) north some more to Heidelberg, (5) east to Nuremberg, and finally (6) south to Munich for the flight home.
(A) I have consolidated a list of places (below) which I am interested in, but visiting them all (solely by public transport) seems rather impossible, so I would appreciate any comments on the places to focus on or skip over. Yes, my list looks crazy.
- Munich (2 days)
- Salzburg (2 days)
- Berchtesgaden / Lake Konigssee area (1 day)
- Hallstatt (1 day)
- Golling an der Salzach (half day)
- Hohenwerfen Castle (half day)
- Innsbruck (1 day)
- Mittenwald (half day)
- Garmisch-Partenkirchen / Zugspitze area (1.5 day)
- Wieskirche (half day)
- Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau (1 day)
- Lindau / Maniau (1 day)
- Heidelberg (half day)
- Rothenburg Ob Der Tauber (half day)
- Würzburg (half day)
- Bamberg (half day)
- Nuremberg (1 day)
- Regensburg (half day)
- Munich and home
(B) It seems from the Eagles Nest website that it is closed for winter. Does this refer to only the restaurant itself? Can I still tour the area on my own?
Pardon the long post. I have not even started researching on accomodations and train/bus systems. Groan ...
