Jump to last reply

Thanks in advance for your help! I know I have a lot of information here, but I'd appreciate input on any or all of it!

We will be two mid-twenties females traveling by train in August 2014. I'd really appreciate any comments, suggestions, or pointers (including helpful sites other Seat61 and Bahn.com) on the trip, the trains between the locations, good (yet reasonably priced) hotels, and anything about the locations themselves. We are trying to keep costs down while enjoying the trip.

Do people think it is worth it to purchase a Bahn card (we are <26)? I've been trying to figure it out and would appreciate your comments.

Our rough itinerary (hoping to book trains and hotels this weekend/next week as they become available) is:

Aug 16-18: Fly into Reykjavik, Iceland, using the IcelandAir stopover program. Staying downtown in Reykjavik, then flying out in the morning of August 18th.

Aug 18: fly into MUC around 1PM, then go downtown/check into hotel. Stay for a day in Munich.

Aug 19: Overnight train to Budapest.

Aug 20: Arrive in Budapest in the morning, stay for about three days.

Aug 22: Leave in the afternoon for Vienna. (Does anyone have hotel recommendations for Vienna? I've been having a tough time finding a reasonably priced hotel in a decent location (would prefer to walk to sites).)

August 25: Leave Vienna mid-morning for Bratislava (about an hour away). Then leave that night for Prague (four hours by train). Stay in Prague, where our friend lives, for three days.

August 28-29: Train from Prague to Hamburg.


That's the sketch of our trip. As I said, I'd appreciate any comments on the itinerary (I know it's fast paced, but we've traveled like this before and enjoyed it - and there are many places we'd like to see!). I'd also appreciate any recommendations for trains along this route, though I'm obviously also looking through the forums for these as well!

Thanks in advance!
