April- Itinerary check?

Hi! My boyfriend and I are traveling April 2017 in and out of Amsterdam and I'm wondering if this itinerary sounds reasonable. We found an especially cheap flight and purchased tickets so it isn't an option to fly home from anywhere else. Is this too much?

4/2 (Sunday)- Arrive in Amsterdam 7am
4/3-Amsterdam
4/4-Early flight to Prague.
4/5-Prague
4/6-Prague
4/7-Eary train to Vienna.
4/8-Vienna
4/9-Vienna
4/10-Early train to Munich
4/11-Munich
4/12-Munich- Late night flight to London.
4/13-London
4/14-London
4/15-London
4/16-London
4/17- Fly or train back to Amsterdam.
4/18- Fly home.

You are crossing half of Europe.

Why don't you stay in the area?

Amsterdam is one of Europe's most beautiful cities and in easy reach you find other fantastic places like Utrecht, Brugge, Gent, Maastricht, Aachen, Cologne, Münster, Bremen and, of course, London. But Prague, Vienna, München are out of way and no better destinations than those in easy reach from Amsterdam.

There's no way your 1 day and a half would do Amsterdam justice. I'm a rush traveller and even I think that Amsterdam deserves more. You may cut one city totally (Vienna? Munich?) to add to Amsterdam and other cities.

Not to mention that April is the TULIP season in Netherlands. You can go to Keukenhof gigantic tulip park as a daytrip from Amsterdam, in fact it is just 20 mins of bus from Schiphol Airport, all the more convenient if you fly to Amsterdam. There's not only flower there. This year when I went there, there are blue Delft ceramic exposition, there are a Dutch painting arranged by flowers! Once in a lifetime experience.

By the way, if you decide to go to the tulip park, your second leg in Amsterdam (17/4?) might be better because the tulips are more in bloom at that date.

We have been to Amsterdam and surrounding area before so that's the reason for going far away.

You don't need to justify your reasons for choosing a place to visit. And as long as you are aware of the travel times between places and are prepared to put in the time, then the itinerary "works"

Air:
AMS - PRG 1:30
MUC - LON 2:00
LON - AMS 1:15

Rail:
Prague - Vienna 4:00
Vienna - Munich 4:10
London - Amsterdam 4:45 to 5:45

I will not insult you by suggesting that you don't know the additional time involved in actually getting to and from an airport, through security, etc.. Someone is still likely to come and post here and try and educate you on that.

A couple pf practical suggestions. Stay near St. Pancras station if you decide to take the train to Amsterdam, and stay near the Vienna and Munich Hauptbahnhofs. Those two decisions will save you time, energy, and money in London and Vienna.
