Starting to plain 21 day Rail Trip- Safe as a single woman?

Jump to last reply

I am traveling to Karlsruhe, Germany in Early September of 2014, and planning to travel by rail for about 13 days ending in Munich, Germany for Oktoberfest. I am very early into the planning, but before getting too excited about my trip I wanted to be sure that rail and overnight travel is safe for a single woman. I'm not concerned about the occasional pickpocket- I have traveled enough to be aware of my belongings, but more for sleeping compartments and lengthy overnights.

My preliminary plans are flying into Karlsruhe, staying 5 days then starting my rail trip with Berlin-Prague-Budapest-Vienna-Munich(staying for 3-4 days depending on arrival), but I am open to suggestions. I would have liked to add Copenhagen, but it seems too far north to keep Budapest in my itinerary as well.

I guess my other question is will 2-4 days/city be sufficient? Mostly my sightseeing will be walking to take in the atmosphere/architecture, museums and good food/drink.

Thanks so much in advance, I appreciate all input as my trip is very flexible so long as I am leaving Karlsruhe Sept 7 and arriving in Munich Sept 20.
