you're a worrier Mark, RB know his stuff with trips like this, he's got nothing else do while he waits for Brexit so has plenty of time for tweaking the plan (the drive, not Brexit ^_^)

RB, I had a quick google for somewhere near Salzburg, we stayed at a nice family run hotel near Bad Hofgastein, might be a bit out off route but we really enjoyed a spot of gold panning

I'm far from a worrier, my path is well travelled,  I like an adventure :)

Colmar (like most of Alsace) is a lovely area to stay in. Great wine and beer too :)  I can recommend Ribeauville as a cool smallish town to stay in. Hotel we had was secure parking too. An old French guy used to lift his sash window every morning and berate my car reverberating off the town walls :D

He's also sort of English too :whistling:

I think that’s what I meant in saying he’s sort of German,  oops does that mean he might not be very good?

Luckily I’ve got the positive attributes of both nationalities. 

Efficient, broad minded and a sense of humour.

....ah yes, humility is from the German side

I think you should probably stop going to those nudist camps though Gordon.

Just google mapped the route 😎 

I can recommend a stunning hotel in Zouz for your St Moritz evening stop

Might be at the top end of the accommodation budget but easily my favourite hotel in the world https://www.hotelcastell.ch/ secure parking, also has a hammam spa with a gold pool and eucalyptus steam room, great bar and pool room

My family and I found it to be the perfect place to end a long, hot driving day in the 930, did the tight, slow Stelvio (a famous but not really a drivers pass) and faster but gravelled Umbrail Pass on our way there
