We are planning a trip to Munich & Salzburg area (me, DH and 16 mo old) in late June. We will be there 3.5 days. We were originally thinking of this itinerary:
Day 1 - arrive in Munich mid afternoon - have dinner, explore the town a bit (depending on the baby's mood)
Day 2 - drive to Neuschwanstein (this is a Friday - will it be super busy??); possibly drive to Oberammergau (is this worth visiting??)
- what else is in the vicinty of this area to see?
OR - just stay in Munich this day - or head directly to Austria
Day 3 - drive to Salzburg area - explore Salzburg or surrounding area; stay overnight there
Day 4 - explore more of Austria - return at end of day to Munich (flying home next day)
We love the mountains & from what I've been reading Austria looks more appealing for what we're looking for than Germany. Is Neuschwanstein worth the visit? I'm worried it will be super busy, standing in line for hours to see the castle with a baby = not fun... and what about Oberammergau? In Austria the Hohenwerfen Fortress also looks awesome, and Hitler's Eagle Nest... what else to do/see in the area?
We have our flight booked in/out of Munich, but we could change our trip to go to Austria after the first night & explore more there. Any advice/tips? Obviously things that are toddler-friendly =) thanks!
