First time to Europe in Winter

Jump to last reply

First time to Europe (married couple, 30), we have 3 weeks of free roam beginning mid Dec - early Jan 2016.

We have a rough itinerary through Germany, Austria and Switzerland but welcome thoughts on locations and days allocated especially during the winter months.

Day 1: Amsterdam > Berlin (via Train?)
Day 2: Berlin
Day 3: Berlin
Day 4: Berlin
Day 5: Berlin - Munich (via Train?)
Day 6: Munich
Day 7: Munich
Day 8: Munich
Day 9: Munich - Austria (via Train?)
Day 10: Salzburg
Day 11: Salzburg
Day 12: Salzburg - Switzerland (via Train?)
Day 13: Zurich
Day 14: Zurich
Day 15: Zurich - Paris (via Train?)
Day 16: Paris
Day 17: Paris
Day 18: Paris > Fly home

1. Is this too many destinations?
2. Would you recommend a destination over another? Add Prague, take our Munich etc.
3. Is rail the most economical options between all cities? German Rail Pass tec?
4. We'd love to see more nature/ less tourist destinations like mountains, small villages, castles etc. Any recommendations?

Much appreciated!
