8 days from berlin to geneva

Hi guys, I'm trying to plan a short trip starting in berlin to geneva taking the long way via Czechia, Hungary, and Austria in 8 days. The start/end destinations and time period are fixed, unfortunately. So I was wondering if my itinerary below would be too hectic?

Day 1: Berlin --> Prague (arrive in the afternoon)
Day 2: Prague (whole day)
Day 3: Prague -> CK (morning shuttle), CK day trip, CK --? Vienna (at night)
Day 4: Vienna
Day 5: Vienna, then train --> Budapest
Day 6: Budapest
Day 7: Budapest, then night train to Zurich
Day 8: Zurich - Geneva.

How can I adjust this?
My order of preference would be: Budapest>CK>Vienna>Prague. I don't really have to stop in Zurich.
And which of the shuttle companies for CK offer my intended one-way route? Most routes I see are return day trips to a specific city. In fact, is a day trip enough for CK? The reason I want to do a one-way is that it saves a day's time.
To factor in, I am travelling with a large suitcase.

It's my first post here. Thanks so much in advance.

You labeled your thread as a Trip Report -many will pass over.

Trains are great everywhere even in Czech Republic- for lots on trains in central Europe check www.seat61.com; www.budgeteuropetravel.com and www.ricksteves.com. And check out the European East Railpass that covers all your trains except in Switzerland -just show up and hop on.

Pause and consider what are the most important things you want to see/do/experience on this trip. You have 8 days, and you've listed 6 cities. That is way too many destinations for the time you have. I'd suggest 2 or three cities in that much time.

re PalenQ: I have no idea I've labelled this wrongly - how can i relabel this?

re Kathie: i should clarify: ignore the berlin and geneva part as I have time before and after this czech/hungarian trip to visit the two cities. so for anyone concerned my trip should be starting at prague and ending in budapest in 7 days. thanks!

gstrad-it originally was marked with a symbol for a "trip report" -special section for those that it was in when I first saw it -subsequently moderators must have moved it out of there so now it is with the regular threads. So no problem.
