I live in the USA and will be going to Poland for all of August to stay with family. On September 5th (Friday), I am planning on flying from Krakow to Brussels to meet up with a friend. After about a day and a half in Brussels, we are going to arrive in Amsterdam on Sunday. After that, we arrive in Cologne on Tuesday and spend Wednesday along some of the towns (like Koblenz) on the Rhine south of Cologne. Then on Thursday we hope to make our way south towards Switzerland, and might stop by Strasbourg. Sometime early Friday, we hope to arrive in Zurich or Lucerne. One day will be spent in one of these cities, and another will be spent somewhere like Mt. Titlis, with a great view over the alps. Then on Saturday we plan on travelling to Munich, but we would love to visit some of the castles in Bavaria, especially Neuschwanstein. Then on Saturday or Sunday we make it to Munich and spend two or three days in the region before it is time to go home.
I am a college student at a quarter-system school, which is why I'm able to do this trip in August-September. Is the Western Europe trip too ambitious? I'm afraid that it might be just too much travelling for slightly under two weeks. We were hoping on getting around by trains. Thanks for the feedback, and I appreciate any advice!
