I don't have any window stickers on my car. I think the added weight and aerodynamic drag (if external adhesion) would increase fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

I didn't realize that town was used in the filming of Harry Potter - good information.

It was a nice business hotel when I stayed there in 2010 - but I didn't think it was anything spectacular (other than the location), similar to a Marriott property stateside. What did I miss??

Good point - but a person could also ship it home fairly easily.

My next trip to Europe, no matter the length, I am going to limit myself to only a carry-on bag and a backpack. I'm tired of...

Regarding Munich, I think the amount of time you spend in Munich really depends on your interest level in the cultural attractions that the city has to offer. If it were me, I'd only spend the 8th...

I think it is a great itinerary - my only recommendation would be to park the car in each city and rely on the great public transportation. You may also want to turn-in the car on the day you arrive...

It may be expensive - but some of the increased cost is due to the VAT, which can be refunded when leaving the EU

I toured Linderhof in April on my European Delivery. I thoroughly enjoyed it, it was way better than Neuschwanstein. The interior is very finely decorated, the tour groups are fairly small because...

James Bond,

Basically that is it, but I'd recommend lingering for a few hours in the morning in RODT before leaving for Strasbourg. You will find that there will be essentially no tourists at...

Great itinerary

I agree with leaving for Neuschwanstein after the factory tour - the drive is relatively easy. I believe the thought is that if you drive down in the morning, by the time you...

I am in agreement with you. I got the IDL back in 2010 prior to ED. I plan on reusing it for my upcoming ED even though it will be 4.5 years old

Sounds like a great plan, a lot of posters really enjoy Lake Como and Milan has the Last Supper (get tickets early).

Fussen: Hotel Sonne, but the Muller is also good as well. Just depends on where you want to be located (town center, or near the castles). Hotel Sonne has underground parking...
