Trains, planes and automobiles Advice

Right folks, thinking 3 nights in Munich staying at sofitel and then travelling to either Rothneberg or Fussen. i would like to see both so,trying to figure out the best way, train to Rottenburg first for 2 nights and then 2 nights in Fussen prior to departing from Munich back home. Are there trains from Rottenberg to Fussen and is what I am suggesting doable? The train sounds like abit of an adventure and it will give hubby a break from driving or am I missing out on seeing villages if we get a car? i want to soak up the place not run around like a manic tourist ticking the been there, done it catequory. Awaiting your advice and thanks in advance!!!

You can find train schedules on www.dbahn.de. This will allow you to see what the connections look like and how long they take. Train travel in Germany is great though - convinient, relatively inexpensive, and comfortable. RobT is at the end of a spur line, so you'll make a couple connections to get there, but nit to worry - the connections are easy.

The benefit of having a car is, of course, the ability to stop enroute and see things. There are some neat towns between RobT and Fuessen. And there are some neat places to poke around near Fuessen. Its really a matter of how you want to spend the time you have.

Not necesarily. There is a routing with connections in Steinach and Kaufbueren that doesnt go through Munich.

Beginning to think about driving, leave Munich after 3 nights there, then 2 nights in RoB and then head to Fussen for 2 nights departing on the third day fairly promptly to get our flight leaving Munich at 2pm ? we want to experience the villages round about so that seems like the best idea. Can we do that without the headless chicken bit?
