Help with Germany and Eastern Europe

Jump to last reply

Our trip isn't until the very end of August or beginning of September of next year, but since we are using frequent flyer miles, I will need to make the reservations within the next month. We are also using Starwood points, so I've listed the ones we're considering. This is our rough draft of our itinerary thus far and I would appreciate any suggestions or input:

We don't do shopping while on vacation and I don't need any recommendations on where to eat.

Arrive Berlin and stay 5 full days, including a day in Charlottenburg and another day in Potsdam.
Either the Westin Grand or the Sheraton Berlin grand Esplanade
Take the train to Prague

Stay in Prague at the Sheraton Prague Charles Square for 5 days, including a day in Cesky Krumlov. Some sites seem to say it takes 2 hours on the train one way and I've found others that state 1.5 hours. We aren't interested in seeing the Bone Church. Is 4 days in Prague (including CK) overkill?

Take train to Krakow and stay at the Sheraton in Krakow
Stay in Krakow for 4 full days, including a day for Auschwitz Berkenau

On the last day in Krakow, take the night train to Budapest

There aren't any Starwoods in Budapest, so I am open to any suggestions for lodging. It can be a B&B, a studio or small apartment, or hotel. We don't want to pay for more than about $80 a night, if possible.

We would stay in Budapest for 5 full days, including a day in the wine region and one day at another site. We really don't want to spend more than an hour traveling to a day trip, so I ruled out Eger, Holloko, Gyor and Esztergom and we are considering Vac, Godollo, Szentendre or Etyek.

We would leave to go home from here.

We enjoy history, culture, museums, architecture, an occasional church and walking tours. From what I've read there are tons of churches, castles/palaces and Jewish history on these routes, but I would like suggestions as to which of these are your top picks in each town and city.

Thank you for any help you can provide.
