New to the site, just decided to take my first backpacking trip to Europe! I have 3 weeks and will be going from June 4th-25th (+/- a few days). I will be arriving in Amsterdam and Leaving through Berlin as i have friends living in both of those places.
Okay so the other day I booked a train from München to Amsterdam. I just realized this ‘small’ detail today:

I just booked my flights and hotels for a 2 1/2 week vacation in October 2009. I am flying to Barcelona (and spending 3 nights). Then I hop an overnight train to Paris (for 3 nights). Another train up to Brussels (for 2 nights). Finally up to Amsterdam (for 6 nights).
Basically, I’ve done a good amount of research so far… But I’m looking to get some advice from either someone living in these cities or has visited these cities before, as to some fun things to do along with touristy sites (restaurants, bars, clubs, site-seeing).
Me and my brother are planning a trip for June, as a UK resident we can take the Interrail and only pay £219 for 10 days travel (both under 25).
I have worked out the route and the train times, im hoping to use the night trains to save on accommodation, thinking we can sleep on the trains.
We might not stop at all the cities, we could go straight through but do you think im being a bit optermistic trying to do all the cities in 22 days and only being allowed to travel for 10 of them?
This is my first trip so any help would be great.
What are some can’t-miss, unique, clubs & bars in Europe?
I will be spending my time in Amsterdam, Belgium, Prague, Germany; but mostly in Italy and Spain. Any suggestions are welcome.
I am a 23-year old guy that enjoys different kinds of beer…having a good time and meeting new people if that helps any…
I assume that rail would be the best way to get from Amsterdam to Munich (for budget travelers), and then from Munich to Interlaken. Is there anything specifically to note when traveling by rail — should we make sure to take the night train or stop in any specific cities (for a brief period)? We will be in Amsterdam for 3 nights, Munich for 3/4 nights, and Interlaken for 3 nights.
Thanks in advance for the advice — trying to nail down this leg of our itinerary as we are going in June-July ’09, and really excited about Munich and Interlaken.
Wondering if you could provide feedback on transport to and from Norway. We are going to see a friend there after flying in from Dublin from the States. Would like it to be as cheap as possible, and wondering if this would be the best way to do it.
Me and my 2 mates are going to Amsterdam on the 26th February for four nights. We are going mainly to visit the cofee shops and genarally chill out while we are there but we do however fancy a night out. I have been to Amsterdam before and when on a night out ended up spending far too much money for the quality of the night. Anyone no of any good clubs in Amsterdam where we wont all end up broke the next morning?
im looking for a fun party hostel to stay at in amsterdam and i found the bulldog hostel and was wondering if its a good hostel. any insight will be greatly appreciated.
I am planning my eurotrip for may 2009 and i have run across a few problems.
-my friend who I was hoping to travel with bailed on me recently
-I will most likely still go alone
-I will be only 17 at the time turning 18 in august
-Will this be a problem checking into hostels? (Im going to amsterdam, berlin, prague, vienna, maybe bratislava, maybe krakow, and definitly budapest, if at all relevant)
-Another group I know reletively well offered me to join their group all 18 yrs old, would it be less problematic for me to join them or would I run into the same issues?
