Germany + surrounding countries Euro trip: Itinerary advice

Jump to last reply

Hey all, sorry for creating yet another 'first time Europe' thread to join the masses available already. With this is on my mind a lot this will likely be a long post, so I'm grateful for your forbearance for taking the time to read and help out in anyway you choose.

I'm in the midst of planning a 5(ish) week trip through Europe in September, and would appreciate any opinions/advice/recommendations you have to offer. For some of this I'll be travelling with a friend, we're both in our late 20's.

I'm interested in seeing more of scenery with some architecture and cultural sights thrown in than history and other attractions. Also without a whole lot of specific plans, and as I'm mostly going by myself I've got a fair amount of flexibility, but I'm of a type that will likely set a rough plan, and then book flights/trains/accommodation well in advance.

This is my plan so far:
http://www.travellerspoint.com/member_map.cfm?user=Khazidhea&tripid=722056

Italy (6 days):
Rome, Florence, Venice
Switzerland (5 days):
Geneva, Lauterbrunnen, (maybe) Lucerne, Zurich
Germany (9 days)
Konstanz, Freiburg, Stuttgart/Baden-Württemberg, Berlin. Finishing later at Munich, at Oktoberfest
Iceland (6 days)
Reykjavik
Eastern Europe (6-7 days)
Budapest & Szentendre, Hungary; Vienna, Austria; Prague, Czech Republic

I'm aware I'm including quite a lot, but so far haven't been persuaded to cut down the list any further.

From this I was wondering if there were any cities I should pick up/drop on the way from Geneva to Zurich. Also one option would be to include the Glacier Express in between Italy/Geneva; would this be a good option or better to focus on what I've got already?

Also was hoping for recommendations of what stops to include for the south-western Germany leg. Will be arriving in Konstanz, and I'm considering various attractions such as Zeppelins and Europa Park, Baden Baden, a night in a castle hotel near Stuttgart.

If you've seen the map it's a bit of a mess after Prague, ignore that. That's mostly to accommodate a few specific dates/places (such as music), and as a result of working around the preferences of a friend who's joining me for the middle three weeks of the trip.

I've got much more I could add about the attractions in each city/country, but I've taken up enough of your time as it is. If there is a reasonably compact/smooth flowing route between most of the above I'd be happy, but really any opinions on any of the above would be appreciated.
