Are two days enough for Munich?

Need help with planning for Munich… we are thinking whether it’s worth spending 2 or 3 days in Munich. As we are there during Oktoberfest, we have one full day for that. The next day we plan to roam in the city. So what are places which are must-see? i am thinking of Allianz Arena, BMW museum… what are the others? Also are there enough places to see for a third day? if not, we will go to amsterdam which is our next destination… maybe places around munich? dachau? , Berchtesgaden, Nuremberg ?

pls help!! thanks

Car vs. German Rail vs. Eurorail

I am new to traveling in Germany and Switzerland, and was wondering what you all would suggest is the most convenient and cheapest way to travel. I plan on visiting the flying into and out of Frankfurt. I am hoping to see the Ludwig castles, Swiss Alps, and Burg Eltz Castle. I only have less than a week 5 days to be exact and sadly not more. Is this too much or is it possible to see everything and not be running around like crazy? If it is possible what transportation would you suggest? Thanks for your help and input!

My 2011 itinerary

ok, first look at my itinerary 2011 Senior Trip

next, I need advice on what cities to go to. What city should i spend longer in: barcelona, madrid, or a what other spanish country?

Spain, France, Germany, Amsterdam, Italy. What to eliminate?

Me and my friends are taking a summer trip to Europe. We were planning on going to France, Spain, Italy, Germany, and Amsterdam. Yet, it seems hard to fit all these countries in a fluid foward travel motion. What is a good order to travel through these countries, and what countries should we eliminate? We can eliminate any except Amsterdam and Germany. I was thinking it was a choice between Italy or Spain.

Hostel advice please


I have been traveling to Europe before with my family, but I am planning a backpacking trip with my friends in the summer of 2010 and have never stayed at a hostel before. I have researched quite a bit, but I am still unsure of a few details.

How early do people generally book a hostel in advance? I don’t want to book all the hostels before I leave for Europe for 35 days because then I will have no flexibility with my travel times, when I want to leave for my next destination, etc.

Best route for Spain, Germany, Italy, France, Amsterdam?

I want to go the Germany, Italy, Spain, France, and Amsterdam. Whats the best order to visit them that will save me the most money. I realize that I may have to eliminate a country. Amsterdam however, is a must. What do you think?

Im thinking maybe: Spain-France-Germany-Amsterdam or Amsterdam, German, France, Italy

It seems that no matter what I do, either Spain or Italy will get cut, but of course, I haven’t actually looked up travel prices and Spain-Italy might not be expensive. any help?
