ED Trip plan - September '19 - 2020 M550i

Hi all,

Wanted to share the plan for our European Vacation in early September 2019. It is my 4th ED (3rd with BMW) and my wife's first. Any suggestions or refinements are appreciated.

Unfortunately, our plan only includes 5 days with the new car. We were informed that our individual order could not be delivered on our requested dates and we couldn't delay the trip further to accommodate the 2 week delay.

Day 1: Arrive at Zurich, Pick up BMW 1er 6sp (Guaranteed Model) from Sixt and Drive down to Lauterbrunnen and park in the garage. Take the train to Wengen and stay there for three nights.

Day 2: Train Wengen -> Kleine Scheidegg -> Jungfraujoch (Weather permitting)

Day 3: Drive to Stechelberg, Take the cable car to Stechelberg -> Gimmelwald -> Murren -> Schilthorn (weather permitting). On the way back visit Truemmelbach Falls.

Day 4: Drive through Mountain passes Grimsel, Furka, Susten (weather permitting). Arrive in Zurich by evening.

Day 5: Day in Zurich. In the evening return the rental car and fly to Venice

Day 6: Venice

Day 7: Venice

Day 8: Afternoon flight Venice -> Munich. Check in to the hotel and visit Marienplatz in the evening in time for Rathaus-Glockenspiel re-enactment.

Day 9: Munich

Day 10: Munich

Day 11: Delivery Day, BMW Factory Tour, Drive to Stuttgart. Check out Porche Museum (time permitting). Stay at Stuttgart for the night.

Day 12: Stuttgart. Spend Half day in Mercedes-Benz Museum. In the afternoon, Drive down to Innsbruck via Hahntennjoch pass and Berwang Landstrasse. Stay in Innsbruck for 3 nights.

Day 13: Innsbruck, Swarovski Kristallwelten

Day 14: Innsbruck to Jauphen pass, Timmelsjoch Pass, Krimml Waterfalls

Day 15: Return to Munich, Drop off Car, BMW Museum

Day 16: Fly Back
