Six week look at Scandanavia, Germany and Austria

Jump to last reply

Firstly, let me thank you all for the incredibly accurate and helpful advice we received for our recent 8-week trip visiting Amsterdam, Belgium, Paris, Switzerland and Italy. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip and had no hiccups throughout. Organising our own accommodation and using trains to get from city to city was definitely the way to go.

Now, for our next planned adventure:

Off the top of our heads we decided on visiting Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Germany and Austria - with perhaps a quick visit to Prague on the way through Germany - and cannot be away for more than 6 weeks.

I have visited Germany and Austria before, many, many years ago, but have to confess that I don't know anything about the Scandanavian countries other than Copenhagen, Stockholm and Oslo are their respective captials.

On our last trip we discovered that spending any less than 5 days in 1 place would leave us wanting. As has been mentioned many times in this forum, the day of arrival and departure do not really count and so we would like to factor in enough time to comfortably see the highlights of our destination.

With that in mind, we are happy to omit a country or city if it makes more sense to leave those places for another trip. In other words, if Sweden has less to offer than Austria, then we can save Sweden for another time. Or if Prague is just another big city then perhaps we could save the whole of the Czech Republic for another trip etc.

As far as Germany is concerned, we plan to visit Hamburg, Berlin and Munich but don't know about other "must see" cities. Eg: Heidelburg, Frankfurt, Cologne, Nuremburg etc etc.

Also, we will again be travelling by train so would prefer to base ourselves in Munich for other sights such as Dachau, Neuschwanstein Castle etc.

Could someone please advise us on the best way to allocate our six weeks on visting Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Austria and Prague - or some of those countries as the case may be?

Thanks in advance.

Steve
