Im planning a trip to Switzerland in March and ill be flying to Frankfurt and drive to Geneva (Geneva Motor Show), and I wanted some ideas for a place to visit.
I have already decided to go to both Merc and Porsche museum in Stuttgart also BMW in M?nchen. Then there is Neuschwanstein Castle and Lake Constance/Bodensee.

And if anyone knows of good wine then they can share that as well. My father loves red wine and it will be his birthday a week or so after ill be back.

So yeah, if anyone has any ideas of a good place to visit then please point out this place. Preferably in Baden-W?rttemberg and on the way to and from M?nchen.

The Technik Museums in Sinsheim and Speyer are well worth a visit, if you have a day to spare. Lots of automotive exhibits, and planes as well (Concorde AND Tu-144!). Both are located near Mannheim and thus do not require a detour.

The German Museum in Munich is the world's largest museum of technology and science*. But it?s quite some time-killer ... not some little 2 hour walk. At least half a day if you want a decent overview ...

* shamlessly stolen from -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deutsches_Museum

Deutsches Museum? Yes, also a great idea. But make that a whole day. Seriously.

I am intruiged to advise to cancel Neuschwanstein from the schedule, but with all the car and technology related stuff, it's actually quite a nice change of pace, I guess. :D

When you are in Stuttgart anyway you should pay the Meilenwerk in Boeblingen a visit. It's situated between the main train station of Boeblingen and the Mercedes-Benz factory in Sindelfingen.

The Meilenwerk isn't really big, but there are some really nice cars on display, some vintage cars and a lot of exotics, e.g. the Artega. There is a Lamborghini and Maserati dealership inside the Meilenwerk, too. And a live sized model of a F-104 Starfighter.

Oh, one more car museum comes to my mind: The Automuseum Busch, according to its own description the "most beautiful private car collection in Germany", in Wolfegg has lots of vintage cars, and quite a lot of them are not your average Lamborati Fasterossa. Personally I liked the collection very much.
If you're going from Munich to Lake Constance, it's not too far a detour: about 15 or 20 km off the A 96.
