Munich, Lindau, Berchtesgaden

Deutsche Alpenstrasse (Lindau to Berchtesgaden) Recommended Towns

My wife and I are traveling to Bavaria and have 4.5 days 4 nights to spend south of Munich driving the Deutsche Alpenstrasse (Lindau to Berchtesgaden). What are the best towns to stay in. We are looking for unique and authentic experiences, a mix of quiet/quaint and bustling. Thanks!

This could be a bit difficult, depending upon the time of year you plan to travel - as many smaller German hotels and inns, either do not utilize Internet based reservations or they get filled up quickly.

Now, the other good reason for the route you have selected, is that it will avoid the Munich traffic.  The traffic in and around Munich is heavy duty, and in town, the roads are either being upgraded, or are full of traffic.

As Tiffany pointed out, staying in or around Chiemsee could be not only interesting & fun, but the castle (Schloss Herrenchiemsee) there is well worth a visit.  This is another architectural example of King Ludwig's, and although not quite as pretty as Neuschwanstein, it is beautiful in a more "classical castle" sense.

Another interesting place to stay, would be Garmisch-Partenkirchen, as this would place you closer to some very pretty geography, like;  Zugspitze, or Partnachklamm, or a little further the Wetterstein for hiking or just to get some beautiful pics.    Hotels there are not inexpensive, but take a look at Hotel Zugspitze, or perhaps Hotel Edelweiss.

Or you may want to push on further, and aim for Oberaudorf, perhaps take a look at the Hotel Feuriger Tatzlwurm there.

Although I am sure that you have already discovered that there aren't many hotels and/or inns close to Obersalzberg, you might want to consider staying in Salzburg or Hallein  There are a number of smaller hotels and inns in and around Hallein, which would allow you to visit the Salt Mine and take the tour, and that would allow you to avoid the traffic in Salzburg.  If you do stay in Salzburg, make sure they provide parking, because that can be a challenge there.

I think you will enjoy your trip, as your Lindau starting point is scenic, the route you have selected is pretty, and your destination is fascinating.  Have Fun !

Oh I would spend a night on the island in the middle of Chiemsee. It's a beautiful area and you can see the Schloss Herrenchiemsee as well and the gardens there.

I would stay at the Tegernsee. One should also visit Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Anyway, there are so many places to visit so that the question ist not so easy to answer,
