    Die Romantische Straße in Bayern

    Frankfurt Nov 16, 2016 at 6:37 AM

    I am not sure if it is appropriate to ask these questions here but i would appreciate if you could answer them.
    I am planning to spend 4-5 days between Frankfurt-Munich in the beginning of February and cover the romantische strasse as well.
    1- Do you think it would be dangerous to do that tour in February as i was hoping to rent a car and drive?
    2- Where would you advice me to stop and spend the nights considering i would be stying for 5 nights?
    3- If i must buy return tickets which airport would be wise to start the tour?
    4- Any special advice that my kids would enjoy?

    Thank you so much

    We will be leaving our last night in Munich on a very late night train (11:30 PM), which makes for a very long day without a hotel room or place to relax for the latter part of our day. Can anyone suggest somewhere that we can "camp out" for a few hours before our departure, such as late-night spot near the Hauptbahnhof?

Is this bus like the hop on hop off bus where you are able to get off at one museum and back on to travel to another museum on the same ticket, or should we purpose the City Tour Card or MVV? Appreciate your answers. Thank you......................
