First Europe Trip - Itinerary advice please

Jump to last reply

My DH & I are embarking on our first trip to Europe after many dreams of our exciting adventure. Ideally we would have liked much more time for this trip however this is not possible due to work commitments.

I'd really like some advice on whether our itinerary is realistic, best transport options between our destinations & any must do tips for the cities we're planning to visit. We're 28 & 30 y.o's travelling from Australia.

The first week of our trip is a little hectic however this is due to DH driving the Nurburgring on 3&4June (not negotiable) and returning to Nurburgring on 8&9 June for the Rock am Ring Festival (also not negotiable). So far all that has been booked are the international flights, Nurburgring (self drive & ring taxi), Rock am Ring festival & Wimbledon tennis tickets.
