Well, if you happen to swing through Berchtesgadener Land on your to-and-fro to Bulgaria, you have my number!

We get back to Munich on Air France about noon on the 30th. Are you traveling by train? Maybe we could pick you up somewhere en route.

Took a while to find your post. I was planning to go home by train from Zurich evening on the 29th. I thought of going to Munich that evening but that is complicated since there are no longer direct trains. Staying in Zurich is probably too expensive (though good quality. There are a few 4-stars offering 2-star prices, but they are still upper-end Swiss 2-start prices).

We could think of July 19 when I'll be free somewhere in Southern Bayern.

there's some good B&B's in Zurich that are not too expensive and the youth hostel has private rooms which are not too bad.

Which youth hostel is that? Whenever I find  a low-cost place they "improve" it and "improve" the prices"

Anyway, a detour though Munich would probably take a bit too long as well (and I will probably commit to my old plans by buying the Innsbruck-Trento section when I'm in Innsbruck tomorrow - compulsory reservation as it's the night train to Rome, but OeBB does not sell it online).

the Jugendheberge in Zurich costs about 70 chf per night if you are in a room by yourself, 42 if you share with others.  it's easy to find.  take the number 7 tram outside of the Hauptbahnhof to Wollishofen and walk about 500 m.  

it should just be listed in english as the Zurich youth hostel, although you don't need to be a youth to stay there.

if you don't like that, try Dakini's B&B for about 70 chf for a single.  there are other b&b's as well, but I know that one.
