Help with 13 day intinerary on East Europe (Berlin/Prague/Vienna/Budapest)

Jump to last reply

So, last year we made a tour from Amsterdam to Munich, and January 2017 me and my mother are going to East Europe.
We have 13 days at our disposition and I am not sure where to go exactly, and how much time to spend in each place.
We tough about starting in Berlin, than Prague, than Vienna and take one day to visit Budapest from Vienna (and back same day, can Budapest be seen in a single day?).

The 13 days would not be used only for these cities, with exception of Berlin (which we plan on going no further than Potsdam) we would use a few days to visit cities nearby, specially in the Czech Republic (kutná Hora, benesov, etc) and Austria (Salzburg, Bratislava, etc). So as you can see, it's a somewhat tight intinerary.

Should I sacrifice one city to use more time in some other? Which? How should I distribute the time?

We will go from Sao Paulo to one of these cities and back by plane, the rest will be done by train.

To complicate things a little more, the affordable flights we can choose are:

Sao Paulo -> Berlin
Vienna -> Sao paulo

Sao Paulo -> Vienna
Prague -> Sao Paulo

Sao Paulo -> Prague
Budapest -> Sao Paulo

And any round trip to these cities (which I presume would make things more complicated, as the train travel time would increase a lot, to come back to the departure city).
Any other option (even to nearby towns like Bratislava or Munich, or the reverse choice of these are increadibly more expansive, for some reason).

As much as I enjoy a lot visiting museums, my mother doesn't really, except one or maximum 2 in each city (if it takes no more than half a day to visit both, lol) (I will move to Germany in 2 years to study at Berlin or Leipzig so I will have plenty of time to visit museums later), what we are looking for is places with nice architecture (specially historic places, such as castles, fortresses, bridges, etc, altough a few modern places like Potsdamer platz wouldn't hurt), and places with historic importance in general (checkpoint Charlie, Berlin Wall, Reichstag, Prague Castle, etc).

Well, that's it, a very big post, but with a lot of information and I would appreciate any help to build the intinerary.
Thanks in advance.
