2+ Weeks in Central Europe. Ideas

Jump to last reply

Hi there friends! Back at it again with itinerary feedback requests.

I am looking to travel with Wow Airlines from Boston to Europe (Likely fly into Amsterdam or Copenhagen and back home from Paris) Just found out my work will be closed April 3rd - April 19th which would be a perfect length for my budget and would be enough time to really see a nice collection of places high on my list.

I know a lot depends on where the fly-in destination will be. I will be traveling with my girlfriend who loves to travel and like myself studied abroad in Europe for half a year. We share similar interests that sort of run the gamut but basically underlining our interest in history, culture, food and beverage! We also really like art and museums but would like to have a couple of particular outdoors sights in the mix. We also are pretty active and don't mind a heavy load (with some more leisurely days built in). We quite enjoy walking, hiking and bicycling would be great activity to repeat while exploring new cities. We are sort of low frills you could tell by our choice in airlines. We'd mostly be using hostels but perhaps some couch surfing and maybe one splurge hotel just to mix things up in perhaps one of the cheaper cities.

Below is a possible itinerary. I have been to Amsterdam before and could take it or leave THIS TIME AROUND, however my girlfriend's never been and I would not mind in the slightest. We both have not been to Copenhagen and I sort of love Scandinavia. We would be using mostly local trains, whichever's cheapast and maybe a budget flight or two via RyanAir or Easyjet. Also of note we particularly like eating and drinking a good bit. I am a sommelier so wine is kinda important. I would love to spend time in some wine region along the way. I just want to keep the trip practically planned and don't want to spend a fortune getting out to region without other related places on the "logical path". I know this isn't a huge amount of time but we willl back. We're only 25 and 22 respectively.

April 3 Fly from Boston - Copenhagen
April 4 - 6 Copenhagen (Train to Oslo)
April 7 - 8 Oslo
April 9 (Fly to Warsaw early am)
April 9 - 10 Warsaw
April 11 (Train to Krakow)
April 11 - 12 Krakow
April 13 Train to Budapest
April 13 - 15 Budapest
April 16 Fly to Paris
April 16 - 19 Paris (only I have been)

Neither of us have been to any of these cities but are familiar with central and eastern europe to a degree. These locations are not set in stone and are open to suggestions. We've been doing our research a bit and know we would find difficulty in finding places that disappoint.

Thanks for your help
