Hi guys. I need your help on my itenary. I'm lost as to how to travel Germany as there are so many things to see.
I will have about 7-10 days in Germany.
What I'm planning is
Leaving Czech republic on May 24th 2014 going straight to Munich. Not sure if worth seeing Berlin
Arrive Munich May 24th
Leisurely wonder around hotel area.
Day 2 May 25th
see Marienplatz, Neues Rathaus, St Peterskirche, Altes Rathaus and Heiliggeistkirche.
Then walk along the genteel Theatinerstrasse and see Frauenkirche and finally Michaelskirche
Day 3 May 26th
Residenz and Schloss Nymphenburg
Day 4 May 27th
English gardens, Neue Pinakothek
Rest of days I'm not sure as some places take hours to get to. For example is the Eagle's Nest (at Berchtesgaden) worth going? (the train travel and the 4 hour English tour up the mountain then train back to Munich)
My wife and I also want to do a tour of the Mercedez Benz and Porsche museums but it doesnt seem like a day tour from Munich. Would it be worth doing the Romantic Road as recommended by various guidebooks etc. We can be a little flexible with time as we just need to make our way to Cologne and stay there a few days and we will have the rest of the trip to decide as we leave via London on 6th June. We will mostly be taking train if its easier to visit these places. Any little input is appreciated as the Lonely planet guidebook is hard to follow as a guide for Germany. Been losing so much hair over planning this Europe trip as being use to doing small towns in Australia or countries Japan and Taiwan that have pretty much everything laid out easily. Europe is huge by comparison in terms places to see.
P.S I like my beers :)
Day 5 May28th
Fussen for Neuschwanstein and Hohenshwangau
Day 6 May 29th
Mercedez Benz and Porsche museums
Day 7 May 30th
