I'm very partial to Berchesgarten. It's only an hour from Munich via the
Autobahn (we should be so fortunate to have such good roads and considerate
drivers). Not only is it picturesque but offers so much to do in nearby
areas. first you're less than an hour from Salzberg so a day trip is very
easy. Then of course, the famous Eagle's Nest is located here (the bus tour
up the mountain is thrilling), the view from the mountaintop awesome and
educational. A must is the Konigsee, one of the most pristine lakes in
Germany. The electric boat trip across the lake, with a stop at Royal
Lodge (have lunch at the outdoor cafe) and shopping in the lakeside town is
great way to spend a day. And a trip to the Salt Mines is a must! Especially
the ride down the wooden slide! If this sounds like what you're looking for
and would like more info, contact me.
PS Dinkelsbuhl is also well worth a visit, very quaint but 1 or 2 nights
there would be enough (it's just a short drive to Rothenberg au Tauber - one
of the most typical towns in Bavaria, but much less expensive).
