My husband and I are planning a trip to Geneva, Switzerland and Munich in April. We will be staying with family in Geneva and with a friend in Munich. We would like to spend a couple of days in Austra on our way to Munich.

A few questions...

1. How easy is it to get from Switzerland, to Austria and then to Germany? Can and should we book train tickets from the States? If so, what sites are best?

2. Are we crazy for trying to fit in Austria? We're thinking Innsbruck, Austria.

We'll have 11 days and 10 nights.

Thanks for any and all help and suggestions.

1. Easy. Yes, try If you book in advance you can get discounts - just watch out, these discounted tickets are tied to specific train. If you miss it you'll end up paying the difference between the discounted ticket and the regular price.

2. If you must go to Austria I would suggest visiting Salzburg as a day trip from Munich.

If you're travelling in April you'd better start booking D-Bahn tickets right now.
They have very good discounts, the tickets between two different countries may cost you from 19 Euro, but those prices may be not available closer to the dates.
