I'd never really thought about dropping at Bremerhaven. What do you do from there? It looks like you can take the train to Hamburg with a change at Bremen?

What time is your flight the next day?

You can always overnight at Salzburg and then drive to the dropoff at MUC the next morning if you can a flight later in the day.
