My girlfriend and i are flying out to bavaria germany in mid december. We will be landing in munich on the morning of the 16th. We will be staying at a hotel for 3 nights, then my girlfriends family will be driving down from Mantel, Germany to meet up with us. We will regroup at another hotel (still in munich) and enjoy our first night together. The following morning we will take a day trip to salzburg. We will come back to the hotel in munich that night. The next morning we will take a day trip to fussen. That evening, we will drive back together with girlfriends family to Mantel.
From that point on, i have no idea what to do or where to visit. I have interest in nuremburg, pilzen, and Czech. The problem is that while we are in mantel, there will be no great means of transportation. For instance, the nearest large train/bus station is in nuremburg. If we wanted to go to prague from nuremburg, we would have to take a bus 1.5hrs west (the opposite of the direction we would want to go) and then from nuremburg back east for another 4 hrs (backtracking). I am trying to sacrafice as little daylight/vacation time as possible. How are car rentals in central europe? What about crossing the border with cars?
Do you think That im trying to fit too much into my itenerary by trying to get to pilsen and prague on top of our time in bavaria? We land the 16th and depart on the morning of the 29th.
