Which one to choose?

Hi Folks,

We will be in Fussen for 2 days. We plan to visit both castles during the 1st day. I pay a visit to one of the town near Fussen. We have the option of Mittenwald, Oberammergau & Garmisch. Do you think we can do 2 towns in a day? If not possible, which one will you recommend for a day trip?

Looking forward to your input. Thanks.....

If you're driving, it would be easy to see all three in a day. They are near each other and these aren't large places.

Hi Kosenrufu,

Actually, one route to get from from Füssen to Innsbruck takes you right past Garmisch and Mittenwald both; it would be to Reutte to Garmisch, then on to Innsbruck. So, you may want to consider seeing one of these towns enroute rather than having to go out and then back again, then repeating much of the same trip when you depart Füssen. You can easily store your suitcases in lockers at either Garmisch or Mittenwald.

I think it would be nicer to see Mittenwald -- the village is smaller, so it's easier to see more of it. It's very picturesque, with frescoed buildings and towering mountains all around.

Have fun!

Hi Folks,

Need your help on more question regarding the visit to Mittenwald.

I have done a search in the DB website for transportation and direction to Mittenwald from Fussen. It shows that i can take a bus from Fussen to Reutte (Austria) and from there take a train to Mittenwald.

reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en…

Questions

1) Whats is the bus number that goes to Reutte from Fussen? Is it possible to cover the route using Bayern ticket?

2) Can the Bayern ticket cover the route from Reutte to Mittenwald?

3) Will probably spent a day in Mittenwald before heading on to Mayrhofen in Austria where we will base ourselves for visit to the near by glacier, Innbruck and Hall. Again can we use the Bayern ticket to cover the route from Germany to Austria and use the European East Pass to cover rest of the route in Austria?

4) How to travel from Mittenwald to Mayrhofen by bus/ train and how long does the whole journey takes?

Kindly advise and many thanks in advance !!!!
