Welcome thoughts on the following; Fly to Berlin or Munich and depart the opposite. Send 3 days in Berlin, 3 days Munich, train between the 2. other 3 days, day trips to Dachau, Rothenburg or nearby Bavaria towns, and may be stop in Leipzig or ?
I am 61 year old male in good shape for walking, traveling solo with backpack only (hopefully); keeping costs down, vegetarian diet, want to feel like more a local than a tourist. want to experience as much as possible of the areas, realizing I can't see it all.
There is an excellent train service between Berlin and Munich. Takes only 4-5 hours. Maybe reserve a seat. Dachau can be reached by local trains. But Rothenburg is more difficult to be reached from Berlin or Munich by train. Better by car. Leipzig is not so interesting. More attractions are in Dresden or Neuschwanstein. You can also check out my German blogs.
We loved our time in Berlin and Munich. We'd love to go back and visit Dresden.
there's a train from Berlin to Rothenburg. 3 hours and you're there. the prcies start at $60 something

If you want to add on an easy day trip or overnight, Salzburg is just a 1.5 hour ride from Munich! Beautiful town!
