Will be in Europe for 3 weeks

Going to Holland, possible France, Germany and England last.

How much is suggested to bring for these countries?

(( Not including plane tickets and euro train tickets ))

All depends on how thrifty you are.  For people that stay in hostels, 50 USD is about the average.  Great Brittan costs quite a bit more.

For Germany, possibly $50 USD might be enough, but $50 USD is only 38 Euros.

An Amsterdam hostel is easily 25 Euros per night, which doesn’t leave much.

People used to say $50 USD back in 2001 or so when the exchange rate was extremely better. You can be very thrifty, but I think $50 USD is cutting it too fine for western Europe, IMO.
