First Time to Europe-Itinerary Help

Jump to last reply

Although this my first post, I've already earned so much from reading other posts an replies. I've been able to arrow down the skeleton of our trip thanks to some great advice given to others. That said, I'm looking for thoughts and opinions on our panned fall 2013 honeymoon.

We are planning on going to Munich, Prague, and Budapest between 9/20/13-10/04/13 (this includes travel). We will fly out of Chicago on 9/20, and land in Munich around 10:00 am on 9/21. We will fly out of Budapest the morning of 10/4. Our only "must do's" are both in Munich -Dachau and Oktoberfest (fiancés request). Other than that, we are open to suggestion. My questions are as follows:

1. How much time is needed in each city?
2. Do we have time for any day trips? If so, where?
3. What are the best palaces/castles to hit in each city? I know there multiple in each city, but I don't want to feel like we have to see each (unless they all warrant a visit).
4. Same question for churches. Which are standouts? Museums?
5. Any guided tours we shouldn't miss? Or are we fine with a map and guidebook?
6. We'd like to do one "top shelf" meal in each city. Any recommendations? We are both adventurous eaters, so there are no limits on type of cuisine.

A bit about us, if it helps with answers. We are both in our early 30's, and in good health (walking long distances is no issue). We both love history, art, culture, and food. I especially have an interest in WWII history (undergrad concentration), and we both enjoy fine dining a well as throwing back a few in the local bars. We are greatly excited about ths trip, and welcome any and all advice and suggestions!
