Munich to Basal Switzerland and back ...

by manyapradhan

Hey,

Planning to drive this distance in late August... Here are a couple of questions...

1. The distance is about 420 KM, whats a realistic driving time estimate? What are the speed limits on A96 & A1 routes?

2. Is this a good drive with site seeing opportunities on way? May have couple of days on way back from there ... Any suggestions welcome ... BTW got kids along ...

Whilst you are waiting for replies from members who have personal experience, have you looked at www.viamichelin.com

It will give you lots of info about your route, as well as estimated drive times (always allow a bit more).

School in Southern Germany doesn't start again until mid September, so expect heavy traffic on any Autobahn. As said above, you have to add to the estimated travelling time, even if there is no congestion.
The recommended speed on any Autobahn is 130 kmh. This means, if you are involved in an accident, the insurance company - or in the case of a rental car the rental company - will check if the accident could have been avoided by sticking to 130 kmh. If so and the driver has been considerably faster, they won't pay automatically.
Of course, if there are speed limits, you may have to drive more slowly anyway.

On your route you'll pass the area Lake Constace, one of my favourites here. Your children may enjoy going on a boat trip. If you're interested in Zeppelins, Friedrichshafen has a Zeppelin museum.

In Kressbronn there is a special hotel, a teddybear hotel. I don't know how old your children are, but if they like teddybears, they will love to stay there for a night.

Thanks for all the advise! I think we will definitely do the lake and stay at the Teddy Bear .. my kids are 6.5 and 1.5 :)

Planning to rent a car-seat for the 1.5 yr old I have a booster seat for the 6.y yr old... I read up that there is a organization similar to AAA in USA. Would be great if you all can recommend a place near Munich airport to rent the carseat.

Cheers!

ADAC is the largest car association in Germany, check if you get any discount if you are a member of AAA.
Cars eats are best ordered at the same time you book your car, tell them what you need.All the main car rental companies have an office at Munich airport.

Your children will love the teddybear hotel!

> A96 & A1 routes?
= via Lindau and Bregenz and than the Swiss autobahn N1
Things you need to know about this route:
1) it goes on a short part through Austria. You need however to buy a vignette (toll sticker) to use the Austrian autobahns. EUR 7,90 for 10 days.
2) You will also need a vignette for the Swiss autobahns. EUR 29,00 for 1 year.
To my knowledge you can get both in ADAC offices. Or at rest stops close to the borders.
3) The speed limit on autobahns is 130 kph in Austria. In Switzerland it is 120 kph.
On country roads it's 100 kph in Germany and Austria. And 80 kph in Switzerland.
Traffic offenses in Switzerland are a really costly affair.

Please note that some of the previously given answers are about the route via Ulm and Karlsruhe (= German autobahns A8 and A5).

Travel Tips for Munich

A Beautiful and Friendly City

by estika

I loved being able to just relax and people watch here. Everyone was very friendly to me (especially on the subway) so I got around with no troubles at all. That left me with plenty of time for lots of relaxing to do.

My favourite area of Munich is...

by farfromnorma

My favourite area of Munich is Odeansplatz. This large open square behind mariensplatz is especially nice at nighttime when the buildings are lit up. On the corner of the square at the entrance to the Hofgarten is an old fashioned cafe resteraunt called Tambosi. This is a very old cafe dating from before the war and has been completely refurbished in the style of the 20's. Its great to just sit out on its terrace with a relaxing beer or a coffee and watch people walking around the square.

Asamkirche inside

by bugulma

The interior is great. Barocco style. The work is of two people, Asam brothers: Aegid Quirin and Cosmas Domian. If you go to the center of the city by U-Bahn I advise you to go out into the streets on Sendlinger Tor station and go to the center by walk along Sendlingerstrasse to enjoy buidings around and this church.

NO need to dress "Bavarian style"

by globetrott

When you - as a tourist - go to Oktoberfest, you will certainly not need to dress formally ...

For bavarian farmers outside of Munich Oktoberfest was a long time ago the only kind of entertainment, they would go to during the year, also because of the fact, that every second year Oktoberfest is combined with a big agricultural exhibition on Theresienwiese ( would there be any better excuse to go there ??:-)

You will see plenty of bavarian people there, even whole families with several small children , all dressed in their traditional costumes...

This pic was taken inside "KÄFER-Schenke" , a place where mostly only the Jet Set of Munich will go !

Tegernsee public square and lake shore.

by hundwalder

The city of Tegernsee and the lake having the same name, are located about 50 km. south of Muenchen on Highway 307. Tegernsee is located in the foothills of the Bayerische Alpen ( Bavarian Alps ). The lake is not as beautiful as the true alpine lakes but is nontheless, very picteresque.

Shown in the photo is a nice flower garden in the center of the lakeside city square. Tegernsee contains many fascinating traditional Bavarian chalets and other buildings. A very nice pedestrian promenade borders the lake. There are many great places to enjoy the view while dining or having some refreshment.

The trains to Tegernesee from Muenchen depart many times daily.
