Schongau is a small walled town in the Pfaffenwinkel area of southern Germany and is certainly suited to a stop along the way south on the Romantic Road.
There are some hotels in the centre along with most of the sights, which can easily be seen in an afternoon and/or evening's stay.

Both Innsbruck and Munich have a good mix of regular scheduled and low-cost operators and their relative proximity means that the two should probably be the initial choices for investigation. The other airports have varying degrees of options with internal flights or low-cost carriers.
Schongau has a railway station to the east of the town in the lower part near the River Lech. Schongau is at the end of a regional branch line which connects to the busier rail routes through Weilheim.
