Depends on

budget

a) city trips 1) Salzburg 2) Regensburg

b) mountain trips 1) Wendelstein 2) Partnachklamm or Höllentalklamm near Garmisch

c) castle trips 1) Chiemsee/Herrenchiemsee 2) Linderhof and Neuschwanstein

d) beer trips 1) trip to the monastery and brewery of Andechs 2) trip to Murnau for a 'Karg' Weissbier 3) trip to Aying and brewery tour with tastings

... no idea whether these are to your taste

2. Re: Can't decide on a day trip

Thanks,

I'll be in Munich in early July. There are so many great day trips I am having trouble deciding. Have heard that Berchesgaden's Eagles Nest is interesting.

We are using public transport so thought maybe catching a train to Salzburg or would it be better to do a bus tour?

Neuschwanstein is also an option, and I do like the sound of a beer tour too.

See, i'm so indecisive!!

Day trip to Salzburg by train is a good option, you can use the Bayern-ticket and get there cheap with a direct connection (don't bother with a bus tour).

Berchtesgaden by train also doable, takes quite a bit of time though, and the Eagles nest can be reached by bus.

If a mountain without hitler history will do as well the Wendelstein is a good option, a direct train of the Bayerische Oberlandbahn (BOB) will take you to the train station Osterhofen (1h20) or DB takes you to Brannenburg (1h). Either a cable car, a cog railway or your own feet will get you to the top.

To Garmisch also direct and fast connections by train, so makes a good day trip as well.

Neuschwanstein also doable by train (already covered on this forum), if that's your cup of tea, go for it, I'm not a huge fan.

The brewery of Aying is covered here

and Andechs here

both accessible by Munichs public transport system (for Andechs, you'll have to do a short pilgrimage from Herrsching, though), so less than 1 h traveling time.

The best thing is, you don't have to decide now, you don't need to buy train tickets in advance or make reservations.
