Forward planning - Itinerary advice please

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone - We are forward planning a 4 week trip to Europe next year, possibly August/September. The first 2 weeks will be in the UK and we are fine with our itinerary for there. We are thinking of doing something along the lines of this
Fly - London - Berlin (Arrive around midday)
Berlin to Prague - Train
Prague to Munich - Train
Munich - Vienna - Train
Vienna - Fly Home
We anticipate we will have a total of 14 days on the ground including the flight into Berlin. Flight back will be day 15.
Questions are
1 - Is this feasible - Train times seem to be around the 4 hour mark ?
2 - Is this the best order to see these cities?
3 - Are there places to stay on the way that are worth stopping for a night?
4 - How long in each city?
We are quite comfortable using the trains, and dont really want to hire a car.
We are interested in most things, and never discount any suggestions on sightseeing, as some of the best things we have seen/done, were things that haven't immediately appealed to us. Although, we are not interested in hiking/bike riding. Particular interest is beer/brewing, modern history, culture (interacting with locals). Some museums etc OK, but despite our interest in history, we tire of museums quickly. Same with art galleries.
On our last trip (21 days UK and France) we went with a plan of 1 major tourist type attraction/day, usually in the morning, then wing it for the rest of the day. We never planned to do specific things before hand, we had a list of priority things to see, and went along with how we felt, weather conditions etc. We will do this again this trip. We don't mind if we miss something, as long as we enjoy what we are doing on the day.
I know that this is a fair way ahead, but I like to lock things away early, and not have to worry about last minute bookings.
Thanks for any help/advice
Dags and Moo
