Need help choosing a 3rd City for vacation! (Amsterdam + Berlin + ???)

Jump to last reply

Hello! I would appreciate some advice for a Eurotrip vacation my partner and I are planning for Summer 2014. We will be travelling from England and plan on doing 14 days.
The two cities that we are definitely set on visiting are Amsterdam and Berlin, we will be starting in Amsterdam for 4 or 5 days and then moving to Berlin for 5 days. But this leaves open a 3rd city slot we would like to fill in.
I'm having a very hard time deciding which 3rd city to go to because there is just so much choice of amazing destinations... But it's basically been narrowed down to either Barcelona, Rome, or Prague.

We're both men in our early 20s and our budget won't be too high - what we look for in a city is somewhere with a nice non-pretentious, relaxed environment with lots of interesting streets and boutiques to explore, some decent nightlife where you can get a good beer and the occasional museum/tourist attraction that won't break the bank. Any other city recommendations or daytrips would be welcomed to.

Also is 4 days enough for Amsterdam or would you give it 5? Berlin is the part of the trip I am most looking forward to (studying German and have lots of interest in German culture) so I definitely want to do at least 5 there.

Thanks very much for reading.
