First europe trip; 1 month - 6 countries. Too Many?

Jump to last reply

My partner and I are planning on heading to Europe next year for our honeymoon, our current idea is that we'll go London>Paris>Gent>Amsterdam>cologne?>Berlin>Prague.
Our itinerary thus far is slightly vague but we were thinking
- fly into london. (stay 5 nights)
- hire a car and spend 2 nights at B&B's visit brighton, stonehenge. jurassic coast, maybe a day trip to bath. (2 nights)
- back to london, catch eurostar to paris
- Paris (5 nights)
- hire a car and spend 2 nights at B&B's visit normandy, mont saint michel, etc.
- back to paris, train to Gent.
- 3 nights in Gent (day trips to brugge and brussells via train)
- train to amsterdam
- 3 nights in Amsterdam.
- train to cologne? one night stay (or just straight to Berlin?)
- Berlin for 3 nights.
- Train to Prague stay in prague for 3 nights.
- Fly home.
That brings us to 26 nights excluding our flights too and from Australia. Does it sound like we are trying to accomplish too much? Should we spend more or less time anywhere? I wasn't sure if we should spend a night or two in cologne, or just head straight to berlin. We like the idea of visiting majo cities but also wanted to be able to see a bit of countryside which is where the idea of hiring a car in England and France came from. We will be travelling from mid November to mid December. Any suggestions would be great!
