Young 20s travel Europe in 11 days

Jump to last reply

I am looking to take 6 days off from work surrounding July 4 (including 2 weekends) for a Europe trip totaling 11 days, including travel. I created a first draft map of a potential itinerary to use: https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=212337116735740754939.0004d74534622b3afdbb3&msa=0

Amsterdam-->Brussels-->Luxembourg-->Geneva-->Lucerne-->Zurich-->Budapest-->Vienna-->Prague-->Copenhagen

I am looking for suggestions on where I should fly into/start (what's cheapest coming from Baltimore/DC area?), what cities I should cut (I'm assuming that's too many for my timeline), how long I should spend in each place, what kind of Euro rail pass I should use, etc. I've never been to Europe before so any/all suggestions are welcome. I'm also curious how little I can get away with spending.

A few more details:

- It will be me and 2-3 other friends, all in our early 20s, all coming from Baltimore or DC airports
- We'd like to squeeze in as much as possible
- We are more than happy to stay in hostels to save money
