Sounds like a good plan . On your way from Prague to Munich you can visit Bamberg (near Nuernberg), especially if you like (german) beer. The city is famous for its many breweries. You can drink there beer that tastes a bit like smoked ham (the brewery is called "Schlenkerla"). And if you need some wellness after Oktoberfest you can visit the "Therme Erding". It's the biggest thermal spring in europe and just 30 minutes away from Munich.
So I have somewhat of a plan for my european vacation, if anyone thinks i should add, take away or spend longer in 1 country to another lket me know. The time frame is exactly as i will be heading home straight after Oktoberfest in Munich.
So here goes
Amsterdam = 2-3 days
Cologne = 3 days
Zurich = 3 days
Vienna = 3 days
Budapest = 5 days
Bratislava = 4 days
Krakow = 4 days
Prague = 8 days ( i could probably fit in another place, but not sure where to go from Prague, to get back to Munich for oktoberfest)
Munich = 5 days
what does everyone think?
Hei! Your itinerary sounds very nice. Prague is awesome, but my advice is that you should not miss Bucharest - nice people, good food, cheap and good beer, nice clubs, amazing landscape in the Carpathian Mountains. Have a nice day!
Why didn't you include either Berlin, or Paris, which are both easily accessible from where you are ?
I've not been to all cities, but Prague, Krakow, Zurich and Cologne are given too many days.
Enjoy your trip - I'm somewhat jealous...
I think that 3 days in Krakow would be enough. So you may spare one day for something else. Or visit Krakow's area, like Auschwitz-Birkenau or salt mines - Wieliczka and Bochnia.

Thank you all, many great tips from everyone, I will think about cutting down on some places, i will probably remove Cologne altogether now, Larassa the reason im going to krakow is for Aushwitz and the salt mines.
Im wondering if you guys would reccomend another city or town, or a great small place that youve found, that will be close to my path?
You could check out Rotterdam, a modern city and second city of the Netherlands if you like post-WW2 to 2015 architecture. (check google images) One hour by train from Amsterdam.
If you like the Amsterdam canals and old buildings, you could check out smaller and less touristy cities like Delft, Leiden, Haarlem or Utrecht.
