We are two couples from Australia going to a wedding in Germany in August 2014. We would like to see some of central Europe and have about 18 days before the wedding. As there are four of us we thought that hiring a car would be better than catching trains, but open to suggestions.
The plan so far:
4 days Berlin
3 days Prague
2 days Brno
4 days Budapest
Do we need to book ahead with accommodation considering it will be high season? we would like to each have a room in bnbs/rentals or double rooms in backpackers
Does this sound like a good plan? Would you recommend Slovenia over Croatia or Italy? We like good food, local people, outdoors and nature and not crowds and high prices (though enjoy the odd party).
Thank you :)
