Hey all :wave:
You're probably wondering what I meant by "Tourist Problems" , well, it's a bit of an exaggeration, but I could use some advice from any veterans I can find (:

Basically, next year, Mid-August, I plan on going Inter-railing around central Europe, and I was wondering if anyone could give me some useful things to do in any of the places I'll be visiting.

Any help is appreciated!

i.) Amsterdam
(I've already found a decent amount of things to do here [intentional innuendo] but maybe there are others who can reccomend some AWESOME things I haven't found!

ii.) Berlin
(I've already been to Berlin, so I know quite a bit about the city already, though there are many who probably know more than I ;) )

iii.) Prague
(I couldn't find much here for during the day-time [Nightlife is a different story however :p] Any advice for either?

iv.) Munich
(I found a few things to do here, it's more like our "intermission city" than anything. But any recommendations? )

v.) Venice
(Not sure how long we'll stay here, I've found some things to do, could do with seeing more though. [Especially nightlife!])

vi.) Florence
(Help, barely found anything to do during the day here :/ Found some nightlife material, could do with some more!)

vii.) Nice
(Another "intermission city" really, but I'd love to explore so much of the place! Any ideas?"

Thanks for any advice!

I live in Munich and may be able to give you a tour through the city. There are a lot of things to do so it may take even two days to explore it completely.
There are awesome places in the north, like the Garching Research Center, and awesome places in the south, for example the Bavaria Filmstudio's

And of course many many more...

Visit Luxemburg if you can. It's really gorgeous. I'm totally not biased at all of course.

In case no one has offered yet: I live in the Netherlands, so I might be able to suggest things. It would help if I would know what you are interested in. Just Note me if you need some help getting around in the Netherlands.
(Personally, I'm not much of a fan of Amsterdam XD It's so aimed at tourists XP Sure, you can see all the cliché stuff there, but I don't really call it representative for the Netherlands. Then again, some people I know love shopping there, so I guess opinions differ XP)

No idea on any of these, and I know you're on hiatus, but if you decide to come back, this list gave me an idea. Ponies across Europe. Have them take this journey, too.

I have been in Italy before as a turist so I can give some advice as turist XD

For Venice only go a day and a half or two, It's pretty small so, only with that you should be able to see everything (I went 3 days and didn't know what to do the last one) places you can see are: Ponti de Oro, Plaza of San Marcos, some churchs, Ponti dei Sospiri. Also! don't guet away from the principal road or you could guet lost.

Florence there is a lot of art stuff!!!! and old monuments!!! for example Ponti Vecchio (the only bridge that survived from the WW II), Duomo of Santa Maria del Fiore, Piazza della Signoria, Uffizi Gallery (this is an obligatory place to go if you go to Florence XD), Academi Gallery (thats where David of Miguel Angel is) And does are some of it. (Also for food search for a buffet)

I hope this helps you out ^^

My 2 c's on where I've been:

ii.) Berlin: Ah, you've been there! Kewl, uhm, try to hit-up the Deutsches Technikmuseum, it is in the SE corner IIRC and it's an almost 2 day look through. Lots of cool shit in there! - If you're mechanical that is.
Another recommendation of mine is the Communcation museum - Museum für Kommunikation - which had a really interesting gathering of cool electronic related gear.
And of course, FT and the Cathedral are always nice to visit... And of course tons of unique little places to check out.

iv.) Munich: BMW Museum... Nuff said. Beyond that, I have never been there.

v.) Venice: Nyeeehhh, I'd recommend 2 days there at most, and you can do the big things in one day. The vapporeti are cool, and it's all very unique. However, beyond walking through the... Oh what is it called... Point is you can do a guided tour through the old palace that is at St. Mark's Square. Check out the cathedral and the clock tower, beyond that enjoy the scenery.

vi.) Florence: Same as Venice, with a lot less sales carts for trinkets and stuff. The one campground that is on the other side of the river is not too big either, a bit of spooning may occur. That is of course if you are camping... I'd imagine the party scene wouldn't be half bad.

Hope that helps! :iconcheers2plz:
