Extra day in Prague, Berlin or Krakow?

Jump to last reply

So after playing with 2 different trip itineraries (they varied greatly) and wonderful responses from fellow Fodorites, I have put those on ice for the near future. This fall's trip will be landing in Prague and flying out of Krakow. Changes can't be made, flight booked already.

I'm looking at:

day 1: land in Prague @ 9:35 am, get to hotel by 11 am
day 2: Prague
day 3: Prague
day 4: Prague
day 5: Prague or Berlin ?
day 6: Berlin
day 7: Berlin
day 8: Berlin
day 9: Berlin
day 10: Krakow
day 11: Krakow
day 12: Krakow
day 13: Krakow
day 14: Krakow
day 15: fly back to Canada

I am looking at taking the train from Prague to Berlin (4h36 direct, seems very reasonable) and then flying from Berlin to Krakow (flight under $200, we are ok with that, vs the night train which doesn't appeal).

If it were you, would you spend an extra day in Prague or in Berlin? Not sure about day trips, usually find enough to do in a major city without daytripping. In Krakow, which I do want to allocate 5 days for sure, we'll be going to the salt mines and Auschwitz. Will research if we'll be doing this in the same day, or 2 separate days.

We are late 30s, early 40s, fit and like the city scene, shopping, cafes and good food, some museums but not too many (1-2 per city OK). We usually try to go to a show or play (saw Sister Act in Vienna without understanding German and it was awesome!).

Any help will be greatly appreciated, as I try to put the finishing touches on the trip. Thanks!
