Backpack or Suitcase for travel around Europe for 3 months

Jump to last reply

Hi just a question about whether I am best to take my suitcase 65cm/25" that is on 4 wheel rollers or buy a backpack.

I will mainly be staying in hostels and the itnerary so far is

-Prague/Olomouc
-Krakow
-Budapest
-Zagreb or -Vienna/Salzburg
-Munich
-Berlin
-Hamburg
-Dusseldorf
-Amsterdam
-Bruges/Brussels

Is it better when in hostels to lock away a backpack or suitcase? I plan to stay in each place around 5 days or more. so would it be easier to take suitcase and live out rucksack during the day??

Info or past experiences welcome!
