Stockholm or Munich for a first trip to Europe?

Jump to last reply

Thanks for clicking on the thread!

I'm down to the last minute and my husband and I are still having trouble deciding between 9 days in Stockholm or 9 days in Munich, arriving April 2nd. The biggest consideration is that we do not want to rent a car, nor spend all of our time traveling between destinations.

If we were to stay in Stockholm, we would consider at least one side trip (Copenhagen or other suggestions), possibly a day in Uppsala or Malmo.

If we were to stay in Munich, we are open to Salzburg, Vienna, Bratislava (only as a continuation from Vienna), Prague, Zurich or other recommendations in the area. We would prefer to not take a side trip from Munich that is more than 6 hours to the destination since we would like time to enjoy the area and relax while on vacation. It looks as though train travel is excellent in the region. That being said, we are not fluent in public transportation and any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

We enjoy the arts, food, history, local life, music, insight into different religions & customs, festivals, etc.

Any advice deciding between the two main destinations, or about side trips from either would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks & safe travels!
