Oh... What about my days in Salzburg and Vienna? I have no sense of Orientation what-so-ever. Can somebody give a suggestion of where to start? Where to end?

The hot air balloon doesn't go real high but it's a nice way to see the area.

The Verkehrshaus is interesting and the planetarium is worth seeing. The Imax films are also very good but you need to pay an extra price.

You can walk along the lake back to Lucerne. It's a beautiful walk.

If it is cold in Berlin, check out Therman, a spa in downtown Europa Center. Ten saunas, 4 hot pools, swimming pool. Co-ed. You won't need a bathing suit.

Hi,

If you didn't book any hostel to saty in yet, I highly recommend you to have a look at http://www.hostelbookers.com/. You will see that you are able to book in any cities you are going to.

Also, you will find different sections with info about travel news, guides, activities worlwide and many more that they might help you out when planning your trip.

Hope this helps.

In Salzburg, IMO, the most interesting place is the castle (the Hohensalzburg fortress). Other places high on most people's agenda are Mozart's birthplace, the bishop's palace (the Residenz) and the cathedral, all very close together in the old town. Then across the river there are the gardens at the Schloss Mirabell (if you're hoping to save money on food, you could have a picnic here). As soon as you get to Salzburg get a Salzburg Card, which gives discounted admission to most sights (and bus travel, although you may not need this).

Berlin: Walk up Oranienburger Strasse at night - lots of pubs & atmosphere.

Thanks nele10, I have made, more or less reservations at places. All except for Amsterdam, which I believe to have a lot of youth hostels near the train station itself. The rest- are a combination of bugdet stays in hotels (2 stars), hostels and a at a few places, some people have generously offered a couch for a short stay. Which I think is such a great way to get to know a town- from someone living there.

I have taken down notes from all the posts in this thread. Thanks!
