A few pointers:

Get yourself a map of Europe. On that map, mark off where you want to go. Think of going in one direction without backtracking and possibly even a circular route.

At the top of this webpage you'll see a link "Plan your Trip." Utilize all the information there. Even better, get yourself a copy of "Europe Through the Back Door" by Rick Steves. It will answer just about every general question you'll have. (Both have lots of information on how to plan a trip.)

In Munich, purchase a Bayern ticket to Salzburg.

What time of year are you going?

I think that 4 days in Amsterdam is too much, unless you will be doing day trips from there.

Frank II has a very good suggestion to get a map of Europe and plan with that. I wish I had done that before my first trip. Try not to back track.

For the areas you referred to I like Steve's suggestion.
