Amsterdam,Venice,or Prague

We will be going back to Denmark next summer to visit friends. They would like us to take a train trip with them to one of these cities. Since we have only been to Copenhagen, I have no idea which would be the most interesting place to vist.

Amsterdam is interesting - but it is a lot like a big city. I was in Prague last year and just loved it. It is a wondeful place - incredible music, great people, easy to get around, beautiful castles. I highly recommend it!

You will probably have more opportunities in the future to get to Amsterdam & Venice, so I'd go for Prague also. Of course, if your friends want to pay for the trip, go to Venice & see lots of Europe on the way.....

We vacationed in Prague in May. It's a beautiful and interesting city - less expensive than most European cities. The people are very friendly. I would like to go there again and see all that we missed the first time. I have also been to Venice - very beautiful and storybookish. Very expensive. Both cities are certainly worth visiting - very different. I think I would probably go back to Prague if I had a choice. Just my opinion.

Check nethotels.com and www.avetravel.cz for good hotels/penzions in Prague. We stayed at Penzion Balbin near the Muzeum Metro & Wenceslas Square. It is about 5-10 minute walk to just about anywhere you want to go, shower & toilet in room, clean, good buffet breakfast. We paid $35 for 2 in November, 1997, and it was $85 in high season the next year.

I am witht he others in bypasing Amsterdam for one of the other 2 cities, if for nothing else, than contrast. I'd pick Prague, though Venice is incredible. Prague will probably be more reasonable weather-wise. It is incredibly cheap by comparrison to Venice and so much to see. I stayed at the Hotel Union in Praha 2. It is right on a tram line into the King Wenceslas square area. The rooms were great and it has a good restaurant.
