Spring in Nordic/Western Europe Questions

Jump to last reply

I am in the planning stages of a trip to Europe in April/beginning of May time frame and I am wondering if it is typically rainy during that time of year? Here in New York and along the Mid-Atlantic of the United States April is the rainiest month.

My wife and I have brainstormed ideas and are still trying to come up with some sort of 10 day itinerary. We are going to try to get a flight via Norwegian Air into Oslo or some other similar city. Then do you all recommend the train or regional flights for trainsportation within Europe? Is it more cost effective for train? I haven't had the time to price it all out yet.

Cities we have on our list but haven't prioritized yet (Please comment on as many as possible! Feedback welcomed!):

Oslo
Stockholm
Copenhagen
Brussells
Bruges
Amsterdam
Maastrict (My wife has been here and wants to return) - we are thinking of using this as a "home base" and taking days trips to Brussels/Bruges/Amsterdam possibly.

We want to explore this general region of Europe since we have both been to mediterranean/southern europe and western europe and UK.

Looking forward to your feedback!
