Need help adjusting europe vacation itinerary

Jump to last reply

Up until last week, we had planned an upcoming trip to Europe (for a family of 5) as follows: Paris 5 days, Amsterdam 3 days, Munich 8 days. This is the first time that my family will be in Europe.

We would not be spending all 8 days in Munich, it would be Munich plus surrounding areas. Probably 2 days in Saltzburg, 1 visiting Meuschwanstein castle, 2 in Rothenburg and only three actually in Munich.

The problem is that we cannot get the CityNightLine from Amsterdam to Munich on June 14 (potentially unavailable due to repair work). So, we would lose most of our last day in Amersterdam travelling.

Alternatively, we could change itinerary to be: Paris 7 days, Amsterdam 4 days, Munich 5 days

Or, we could also do this: Paris 5 days, Brugge 2 days, Amsterdam 4 days, Munich 5 days

These changes would allow us to schedule the CNL train that allows us to keep a full day in Amsterdam. But, we would go from 8 days in Munich area to only 5 which probably means we would not visit Saltzburg or Rothenburg.

Would it be better to make the first plan work or would we be better changing to one of the alternative plans?
