Germany May 2013

Jump to last reply

Hello! Well, I am traveling to Germany with my cousin from Texas! We only have 2 weeks as we have to get back to work and school.

I am visiting Germany because I will *hopefully* be studying at a university in 2014! There are many universities that have programs.. So, I thought.. and please, correct my itinerary if I have fooled myself.,.. I thought these would be the cities I would like to visit..

We are not renting a car... we are doing everything by public transportation.
Fly into Berlin on Thursday the 9th of May (landing the 10th) So, we will be in Berlin on the 10th, Friday. I would like to stay for at least 3-4 days. In no way am I going for a history lesson, but I would like to enjoy my stay while I am there and see a few sites. We have been looking into places to stay and have had some luck in finding accommodations that are not too crazily over priced for our budget. (under 70 EU per night)

Next, we thought we would train into Hamburg.. As I have a few acquaintances there.. They have provided nice information on places to stay and things to do.. We are planning to stay in Hamburg for at least 5 days, taking us to about 9 days on ground.

After Hamburg.. I get a little confused.. I do want to visit Leipzig and Köln as they are both on my list of to do.. But we will be flying out of München on Thursday 23rd. Not sure if there would be enough time for both and the last... So, what do you all think?

Also, are the trains easy enough to coordinate.. I've read yes and no.. and they can be extremely costly..

THANKS!!!
