3.5 weeks in Central Europe

Jump to last reply

Hi all,

We're a couple in our late 20s and are traveling to Central Europe in August for 3.5 weeks. Just a few questions:

1. I know it's ambitious but the below loop is where we think we'll travel to. We're used to fitting in as much as possible on our holidays so yes, it's a lot to fit in for 3.5 weeks but we don't mind traveling around more to see more places. We'd like to spend a majority of our time in Austria and then just 1-3 days in each city. Will the below loop be possible in terms of travel via bus?

Fly into Vienna
St Stevens cathedral

Bratislava
Bratislava old town
Devin castle
St Elizabeth's church

(Are there other cities in Slovakia worth checking out?)

Budapest
Fisherman's Bastion
Budapest Pinball Museum
Castle Hill
St. Stephen's Basilica

Crakow

Wroclaw
(Poland may be omitted due to buses and may be replaced with Venice, Italy)

Prague
Old Town Stare Mesto
Charles Bridge
Old Town Square
St. Vitus Cathedral

Neinburg

Munich
Brewery/beer tour
English Garden
Marienplatz


Innsbruck
Innsbrucker Nordkettenbahnen

Salzberg
Fly out of Vienna

2. We looked into a train pass but with the AUD currency conversion the tickets will be quite expensive for us so we think we’ll take buses instead. The buses that we've looked at are very reasonably priced. Do we need to book the buses in advance? Is there a particular bus company we should be looking into? We couldn’t find any buses in Poland so we may omit Poland and go to Venice instead.

3. Any cities in this loop that I've missed that you would suggest adding or maybe a city that should be omitted? Or places that we should check out while we're in these cities?

4. Bonus question : ) recommendations for where I can take the best photos.

Thanks heaps for any assistance and advise!
Rachel
