    If you are heading south to Vienna you'll be passing through the Czech Republic. On the border between that country and Germany is the sensational region called Saxon Switzerland. With its wild rock formations and acres of forest, it has to be one of the most beautiful regions in Germany, if not all of Europe. It's easily accessible from Dresden, but if you want to stay in one of the small towns in the region there's plenty of options; Hohnstein is a popular place.

    Does these 10 days include also time for Berlin and Vienna. It would be easy to spent 10 days just with these 2 cities. If you travel by car you have of course endless options. Most of Germany, most of the Czech Republic and most of Austria lies between both cities. You have to check however if you can take your rental car into the Czech Republic.

    Saxony Switzerland is for sure an option.

    Another route could be Berlin - Wittenberg - Dessau - Erfurt - Coburg - Bamberg - Romantic Road - Füssen - German Alpine Road - Salzburg  (- Vienna)

    Buy when in Germany a good road map / street atlas which shows the scenic roads (normally marked green) and towns/sights of interest.

    While in Berlin, you definitely want to see Potsdam with Sanssouci palace and park.

    Then I would head to Lübben to see Spreewald, then to Saxony Switzerland plus Görlitz.

    Should you rather want to drive via Bamberg (and thus stay far more west), then a route via Passau would be reasonable as well.
