Backpacking Europe and not sure what to see and do

Jump to last reply

Basically, I am planning on backpacking through Europe for about about five weeks this Dec-Jan and I don't really have anything I want to do. I think I have the cities pinned down that I am going to, but then again I have no idea what I am doing and basically picked the major cities. I figure I can go off to the smaller towns from the major city for a day trip. They are as follows:

Dublin -- London -- Paris -- Brussels -- Rotterdam -- Amsterdam -- Cologne -- Strasbourg -- Munich -- Prague

(Rotterdam will mainly be a quick stop, I have a friend who lives there)
(Might throw one more city in there)

As stated above, I really don't have anything I want to see. I want to see some of the touristy stuff, but other than that I don't know what to see/do. I would rather experience the city itself (history/culture/food) than spend my time going to all the major tourist spots.

Open to any suggestions and comments.
