This escape plan was a free trip that I won over a Facebook contest jointly held by Erdinger and Lufthansa. A trip to Erding a couple of days before Xmas to get the Xmasy feel with snow and a drive to Munich and Neuschwanstein was a perfect end to a great year of escapes.
Budget nature: Affordable in this particular escape.
With the tickets and accommodation already taken care of, its just some of the beers that we would need to pay for.
Complexity: Easy to get around with public transportation and driving on the Autobahn.
It was very simple to get from Erding to Munich using the train and driving on the Autobahn even during snow was not difficult, though it was a first. Of course, we had free transfer to and from the airport.
