Berlin or Prague and then Munich

My 24 year old son and I shall be meeting up with my 20 year old study abroad son for a 7 day Munich-Vienna trip in May.
We shall be arriving 2 days earlier. My question: should we spend those extra 2 days in Berlin or Prague or in the Munich area before meeting up in Munich?
And of course, how easy is it to travel between those cities?
I am open to any suggestions! Thanks everyone for your help !!

Both Berlin and Prague are the better part of a day's traveling distance from Munich, so you would realistically only have one jet-lagged day in either city. Prague... maybe you could enjoy it with so little time, but Berlin definately needs more. Your time would probably be better spent in Bavaria.

I would just use the time in Munich. Take a look at daytrips from Munich like Regensburg.

How desperate are you to see Berlin even for just two days? Very easy connections between Munich and Berlin, direct ICE by day. But, if you're not adverse to taking a night train, between Berlin and Munich is the CNL train which gets in at 0705.

2 days is too little for Berlin or Prague especially considering that you will have jet lag. I would stay in Munich. Exception: if airfare is substantially lower flying into Berlin or Prague then I would consider it. Traveling between B and M or P and M is very easy.

I also agree about spending the extra time in Munich. It's a very large city with many great tourist sights.

And it's especially a great place for a couple of young men.

A very big thanks to all of you who replied with advice.
It looks to me that we shall spend our extra time in Munich and Bavaria !
I thought this sounded best so that we are not rushing about and shall let us get more out of our experience.
Thanks again...Bob
