Well I am a little stressed about this one, so I will rely on people experiences to help me figure out what should be my last hop of my trip.

I am planning to book a Star Alliance Airpass (which is awesome by the way), and in order to maximize the value, I need to figure out my last hop before going back to Dublin. Here are my options from Madrid :

- Copenhagen – Oslo – Stockholm – Zurich
or – Vienna

Which one would be the best on a landmarks and things to do perspective? I don’t want to party, I want to see things Smile

I am leaving from Montreal with $1500 for 14 days
Dublin, Istanbul, Madrid, Seville, Madrid, Stockholm, Dublin

Without knowing what exactly you’re looking for, I think we could at least probably remove Zurich and Oslo from your list. That leaves you Copenhagen, Stockholm, or Vienna — depending what you fancy. What time of year will you be travelling?

I will be in europe in the end of august, the target dates are Aug. 28 to Aug.30.

I am more an outdoor sightseeing type than a museum type, like walking on the streets and see the stuff, try to do the same things as locals do. I like to be “culture shocked”. I think I might go with Stockholm. If I was single, I would go with Copenhagen, but thats another story Smile

What do you think?

Stockholm is a good choice for late August. If you get tired of the city, take the archipeligo ferry hopper.

I think I will stick with Stockholm, it looks good, especially for outdoors.

Now I am ready to book my Airpass hehe.
