Hi, there are 2 of us in our mid 20s who are planning on a 14 full days trip to the above places in mid April. We will not be driving any leg of the journey (intending to take trains), and will be flying in Amsterdam, flying out Munich. We are interested in a mix of cities/towns/nature.

Will appreciate comments on anything else we should not miss (given our itinerary), and especially the logistics - i.e. whether it's worth getting any rail passes, which train tickets should we buy in advance etc.

We might be able to afford an extra day - in which case, appreciate comments on where to slot in the 15th day.

Day 1: Amsterdam (Rijksmuseum, Vondelpark, Albert Cuyp Market, Zaanse Schans)
Day 2: Amsterdam (Anne Frank House, "nine little streets", floating flower market, canal cruise)
Day 3: Amsterdam (Keukenhof)
Day 4: Train to Bruges (sightseeing in city centre)
Day 5: Train to Ghent (sightseeing in city centre), and to Brussels (stay the night)
Day 6: Train to Frankfurt. Side trip to Heidelberg (by train)
Day 7: Frankfurt. Day trip to Rhine Valley (Train to Mainz to St Goar to Rudesheim back to Frankfurt main station)
Day 8: Take the Romantic Road Coach that departs from Frankfurt, to Wurzburg and to Rothenburg ob der Tauber (stay the night)
Day 9: Continue on coach to Munich (stop at Dinkelsbuhl along the way). Night in Munich.
Day 10: Day tour to Neuschwanstein Castle. Night in Munich.
Day 11: Train to Salzburg (Salzburg Old Town, Mirabell Palace, Salzburg Cathedral, Hellbrunn Castle, Salzburg Fortress). Night in Salzburg.
Day 12: Day trip to Berchtesgaden (Bus 840), Lake Königssee. Night in Salzburg.
Day 13: Day trip to Hallstatt (Bus 150 to Bad Ischl, train from Bad Ischl to Hallstatt railway station, ferry across the lake): salt mine, boat ride. Night in Salzburg.
Day 14: Train back to Munich. Sightseeing in Munich (Marienplatz, Victuals Market, English Garden).

Specifically on the Romantic Road portion, grateful for any comments on alternative modes of transport which may be more feasible / economically efficient.

Many thanks in advance!
