We are planning our trip to Munich for the first week of December. We will be traveling by train and plan to do some day trips to Salzburg, Rothenburg, and possibly Garmisch-Partenkirchen (we are not skiers, just want to see the scenery). As we have been living in a warm climate for the past 20 years, we are not sure what to take as far as footwear. Is a waterproof pair of shoes appropriate, or should we plan to be walking in slushy snow that we'd need boots?
Also, any suggestions on Christmas Markets? We are planning to visit the Marienplatz one and visit Tollwood in Munich, but any suggestions for others that were within train distance (day trip) from Munich is welcome!
