Travel Forums Europe City suggestion

Hi, I have planned a trip in Europe and I seem to have made a bit of a mess in the allocation of days so I have about 5 days left at the end before I need to make my way home. I'll be in Budapest last and am wondering where would be a good city to visit in addition to the ones I'm visiting already. It doesn't necessarily have to be near Budapest but it would have to be on the way back towards Paris as that's where I'm getting my train home on the 5th day (live in the UK). Anyone have any suggestions? (I was thinking maybe Salzburg)

The places I'm going to before Budapest are Paris, Bern, Berlin and Krakow. Many thanks!

Salzburg would definitely be a great choice. Lots of places in Austria are very nice, including Vienna. My fist choice would be to go to Prague (even if it's a little out of the way). Any of those 3 would be good.

How long is your total trip? What month are you going?

i agree with prague too. should be a beautiful city !

you could also go and see another city in germany that is on the way back to paris. what about munich ? or cologne, from there you get a very fast trainconnection to paris then.

but it really depends on your interests..

have a nicee trip !

Many thanks for the suggestions, I think I might go for Salzburg as I've been to Austria before and found it really beautiful, though another city in Germany would also be good and Prague too though I've been there once before.. I really don't know maybe I'll just pick a train at random and see where I end up! I'm just going for a month in July, I'd like to go for longer but my work won't let me have any more time off unfortunately.

Hey BlankFrack,

If you've already been to Prague, then Salzburg would definitely be a good choice. I lived there for an entire Summer and never got bored. Another nice, picturesque, town on a beautiful lake is Zell Am see. I lived there for 2 Summers. You can ride a bike around the lake, hike the nearby mountains, etc.. In 5 days you do just Salzburg or do both Salzburg and Zell Am See.

Wow, that would be a tough choice... Salzburg and Prague are both amazing cities.
Salzburg was very pretty indeed, and it had so many things to offer... the trick fountains were very entertaining, and the palace was definately gorgeous, especially lit up at night by all the different coloured lights!
It was also interesting to visit Mozart's birthplace and see the city that inspired him!... maybe it will inspire you too?!
happy travels! ;)
