It depends on the stay and visits you will be haivng in each country. You are traveling alone so it would be a cheap trip but try not to make it stupid by neglecting some beautiful spots just because of saving money.
Choose Holiday rentals as compare to hotel rooms for your stay and the other one I must say is to go by road and train rather than plane.

Hi Fresh,

I am in the midst of researching and planning my Europe trip too. I wonder how you pick those places "Hamburg > Den Haag > Brussels > Paris > Madrid > Barcelona > Rome > Venice > Austria > Zurich > Prague and Munich" according to your post.

I will most probably start my journey from Heathrow Airport. Any suggestions are welcome.

Rail would be the easiest and fastest way to get around. Have a look at the different passes on http://www.interrail.eu/. They allow a few different options, so it depends on how you want to do it. If you bought the tickets at the station, it would fairly quickly cost more than the Interrail ticket. Coaches are a slower and slightly cheaper option and you can often get cheap flights with Easyjet and Ryanair. It also depends on where you want to visit in between the places you've listed. If you're going all the way from Barcelona to Rome for example, it would be a shame to miss out on Montpellier, Nice, Monaco and northern Italy, but if you're in a rush by that point you'd be better off flying. http://www.hostelbookers.com/ is pretty comprehensive for cheap accommodation...

My advice in general would be to stay as flexible as possible, book things only a couple of days in advance, keep talking to local people and other travellers, and just take things as they come. And try not to be too ambitious with the number of places you want to visit. If you try and see everything, then you'll end up seeing nothing and it will all still be here in 20 years if you decided to come again!!! Hope I've been some help... Rich

No need to go there. The accommodation section here on travellerspoint has exactly the same hostel (as they're partnered with hostelbookers), and also all the hostels from hostelworld (idem). Don't know how much longer that'll stay unique, given that hostelworld has recently booked hostelbookers, but for now at least it gives this site a better selection than either of those two. :)

Hey Jack,
I picked those places cause its where is suitable to visit each country in a circle way. I fly from BKK to Frankfurt then car to Hamburg then start from there.
The closest u are the cheaper u can get esp for the fare/tickets than flying from one side to another side of Europe. And those places are best for my Travel Photography...

I suggest to do the same. U can start in every country u want but do it in a circle motion. so the transportation will always be available and it will not takes to much time to travel which steal ur days just for transportation.

There is a cheap bus connection between Prague an Munich (and of course other European destinations as well) from www.studentagency.cz, their buses are veeery comfy (free hot drinks, wifi, tv, toilets, magazines, etc..). One way ticket is 550 (21 euro) -850 CZK (depends on how flexible ticket you need).
