Today, I have the ultimate travel guide and a complete 3 months itinerary for traveling and backpacking through Europe including spending most of the time in Spain, France, Switzerland, Germany, and Poland, with a few brief visit to the Baltic States such as Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and the Nordic countries like Finland, Sweden and Denmark before ending your trip in the Netherlands.

It's everything you will ever need to travel through Europe for 3 months. Without further ado, let's begin with the basic information on traveling in Europe.

When to Visit Europe

Best time to visit Europe is during Spring or Autumn.

Europe is extremely crowded where ever you go in the summer so I would recommend visiting from April to May (Spring) and September to October (Autumn) instead.

During these periods, you will get the best of both worlds, with fewer tourists, cheaper prices for accommodations, good average temperature, and the colors of nature are in full swing. Plus, outdoor activities you can attend in cities like Berlin are still happening during these months so it will be fun nonetheless.

How to Get to Europe

It's always a treat looking out an airplane window when flying above the Alps.

The good things about traveling in a well-traveled area like Europe is that there are plenty of cheap flights that you can choose from.

Ideally, with this particular itinerary, I would recommend you flying into Madrid, Spain and flying out from Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Both airports have plenty of flights going in and out every day such as Iberia Airline from the US to Spain and KLM for flying out from Amsterdam.

To find the cheapest flight to Europe, make sure to browse through Skyscanner or Momondo so you can get the cheapest flight from your home country to Spain.

How to Get Around Europe

Europe is massive and since this itinerary covers over 10 countries, a well-planned route and mode of transportation are essential especially with the 90 days limits on our tourist visa. Here are a few ways you can get around Europe:

Low-Cost Airlines like RyanAir is a great option if you want to shorten your travel time significantly and travel far but it is expensive and with this itinerary, you will likely be traveling close by and making your way slowly around the continent so you won't be flying.

Buses are one of the best and cheapest ways to travel around Europe. Most of the locations covered in this itinerary can be traveled by bus (except Zermatt where you will have to take the train). FlixBus is a great option with affordable prices and a good network of buses that connect most of the places I listed here.

European trains are also a good option if you want to travel fast but it can get expensive real quick so I would recommend to only use it when there is no bus going on the day you want to travel.

Eurail Global Pass is recommended if you plan to travel by train a lot. Eurail pass gives you unlimited train travel for a period of time on the national rail networks of over 31 participating countries. You are qualified to get one as long as you don't hold European residency and you buy it before you arrive in Europe. If you are 27 or under, you are also eligible for a 23% discount as well.

For more information about Eurail Pass: How to use a Eurail Pass - A Guide to European Rail Passes.

If you want to save even more money, you can go with Blablacar, a car-pooling service popular in counties like Spain, France, and Poland.

Daily Budget

1 daily budget 1 daily budget 1 daily budget 1 daily budget 0.5 daily budget

This is a very expensive place to be traveling so I would suggest you plan your budget carefully. I spent around 55 - 80 USD per day per person including most essential things like food, accommodation and transportation.

Keep in mind that this is just a suggested daily budget based on my style of traveling, which is leaning more toward the budget side of things. If you want to stick to this budget, expect to sleep in dorms, eat out only a few times, and be comfortable using the cheapest and most convenient way of transportation, which often times involves walking.

Internet in Europe

Internet in Europe is still isn't as easy as we wanted to be but thankfully, WIFI is available everywhere.

Given the new data roaming surcharge ban that went into effect in 2017, we can now have one local sim card bought in the EU and use it in most places in Europe without having to buy a new sim card for every new country you visit making our connected lives so much easier.

In theory, you can buy a sim card from Spain and access data throughout your trip with the same domestic rate no matter where you are, but there are some countries that have yet to comply with the change like Poland and the Nordic countries.

Thankfully, Wifi is plenty in these countries so you will have no trouble getting online while on the road, even without roaming sim cards.

One thing to note when you buy a local sim card is that make sure that it actually allows you to go roaming with your data. Go to a proper phone carrier shop, let them activate the roaming data and they should provide you with all the information you might need to stay connected while traveling for 3 months.

For more information on European Union sim card: European Union Prepaid Data SIM Card.

Travel Insurance

If you are looking for travel insurance to go along with your trip to Europe, I would recommend WorldNomads.com, which is what I use to look for travel insurance that fits my kind of adventure.

The colorful architecture of Plaza Mayor in Madrid, Spain

Sobrino de Botín, the oldest restaurant in the world, is in Madrid, Spain.

Madrid is also home to the oldest restaurant in the world, the Sobrino de Botín restaurant, a Castilian-style restaurant that has been operating for more than 250 years, so don't miss it. It's a bit pricy but hey, they earned it. 😊

Seville, Spain (2 Nights)

Plaza de Espana is by far one of the most beautiful and photogenic places in Seville.

After Madrid, you can take a 6 hours bus to Seville, a place full of beautiful medieval architectures like Plaza Espana, Alcázar of Seville and Catedral de Sevilla.

It's popular among tourists and yet it doesn't feel crowded at all at Plaza de Espana

Spend the next full-day and walk to Plaza Espana in the morning, cooled down at Maria Luisa Park and make your way back through Alcázar of Seville and their beautiful gardens inside and the Catedral de Sevilla, a giant gothic-style church, the third-largest in the world.

The beautiful park inside Alcázar of Seville, definitely worth a walk around when you are in Seville, Spain.

In the evening, go walk along the river and head over to Tirana and have a nice delicious dinner at the Las Golondrinas 2 tapas bar.

Granada, Spain (3 Nights)

The unbeatable sunset view over Granada at the top of Sacromonte, Spain.

From Seville, it's only 3 hours bus-ride away until you arrive in Granada. There are several notable things you can do in Granada such as hiking, visiting Alhambra and eating delicious tapas.

Do not let the exterior of Alhambra tricked you into thinking that there's nothing in there. The interior is filled with beautiful parks and architecture to the brim.

Before arriving in Granada, be sure to book a time slot and a ticket into Alhambra online in advance as they limit the number of people that can visit this beautiful fortress and it would be a shame if you miss it.

An example of how detail the architecture is inside Alhambra, Granada, Spain.

You can spend at least half a day inside, exploring all the intricate detail of the architecture and gardens inside the fortress wall.

The view from a walking trail along the cave area behind Sacromonte, Granada where the free walking tour will take you through.

There is also a free cave walking tour that starts at Plaza Nueva in the afternoon and will take you all the way up to Sacromonte viewpoint (best sunset spot in the city) and down to the caves behind the hill, dug up by the locals to shelter themselves.

The free walking tour will take you through a traditional village with the view of the Alhambra fortress, Granada, Spain.

The story behind the origin of these caves are quite interesting and I highly recommend you learn about it with the tour guide.

One of the few suspension bridges you will find along the waterfall trail (Los Cahorros de Monachil) in Granada, Spain.

On your second day, take a local bus to Monachil and go on a waterfall hike (Los Cahorros de Monachil) through the mountains and caves of Granada. You will be hiking to a few waterfalls and through suspension bridges which is fun and an easy micro adventure you can do from Granada.

Barcelona, Spain (3 Nights)

La Sagrada Familia, a famous tourist attraction in Barcelona.

After Granada, we travel to the capital city of Catalonia, Barcelona, home to the many beautiful alien-looking Gaudí's architectures like the forever-under-construction La Sagrada Familia, Gaudí's House Museum and all his creation around the city.

Gaudí iconic style of architecture is out-of-this-world.

Park Güell is a great place to start your day with a hike up to the top of the hill to see Barcelona from above. This is also where the iconic Gaudí's House Museum is located.

The Gothic Quarter and the Cathedral of Barcelona, a great meeting point in the city.

The Gothic Quarter is also a must-visit when you are in Barcelona. Be sure to check out the Cathedral of Barcelona, its beautiful Roman-era buildings and all the antique narrow streets in the area.

Montserrat Monastery from above.

The next day, you can go on a day trip and visit the Montserrat Monastery, located at the top of a rocky mountain only 1.5 hours away from Barcelona by train.

Avignon, France (3 - 4 Nights)

Avignon is a stunning city full of antiquity, medieval castles and old towns to explore.

I low-key love traveling in Avignon. It is a stunning city full of antiquity, medieval castles and old towns to explore. The most stunning one of all is the Palais des Papes fortress located at the heart of the city.

At night in the summer, there will be an impressive light show explaining the history of Avignon that you can attend

They also have an impressive light show explaining the history of Avignon that you can attend on a summer night.

The second day, I would recommend you to leave early in the morning and take a bus to Arles, a beautiful Roman city located an hour away from Avignon

You can also go on a day trip and explore the surrounding towns like Arles, home to the famous Arles Amphitheatre, go on a hike at the Fontaine de Vaucluse or shop at the L'Isle sur la Sorgue Sunday market.

Bordeaux, France (2 Nights)

One of my favorite pieces of architecture in France is the Miroir des Quais and Place de la Bourse in Bordeaux.

One of my favorite pieces of architecture in France is the Miroir des Quais and Place de la Bourse in Bordeaux. The Miroir des Quais is the largest water mirror in the world, and it is located right by the 18th century Place de la Bourse.

Place de la Bourse and the iconic reflecting pool making it one of the most photogenic spots in Bordeaux.

With the thin layer of water from the Miroir des Quais and the beautiful architecture that it reflects, this place is one of the most photogenic locations in the city.

2. Be mind-blown by the Miroir des Quais

The Miroir des Quais is best seen both in the morning when the light isn't too strong, and at night when the sky turned purple and the artificial lights of the city illuminated the streets and its reflection.

Walk the Pont de pierre stone bridge

Right near the Place de la Bourse is the 18th century Pont de Pierre stone bridge connecting the left bank of the Garonne River to the right bank Quartier de la Bastide, which is also worth a visit.

4. Walk through The great bell of Bordeaux

Other places worth checking out are the Great Bell of Bordeaux, Rue Sainte Catherine and the vintage market at Basilique Saint-Michel.

Rennes (Mont Saint Michel), France (2 Nights)

Mont Saint Michel is a must-visit when you are in France.

The only reason I put Rennes in this itinerary is that it is a cheap base to make a day-trip to Mont Saint Michel rather than staying nearby which can get quite pricey.

The island also has 2 sides to it that travelers like us can enjoy

From Rennes, you can take the 9:45 AM train to Mont Saint Michel and get the return train at 02:45 PM which should give you 4 hours to spend at Mont Saint Michel.

Its fairy-tale like architecture, unique location and the constructed commune inside, makes it feel like it came straight out of a fantasy novel.

Mont Saint Michel is quite a sight to behold. It is a fortified island located in Normandy with over 60 buildings in the commune. With its fairy-tale like architecture, unique location and the constructed commune inside, walking around makes you feel like you are in a fantasy novel or something.

Mont Saint Michel is at its best during high tide.

One tip for visiting Mont Saint Michel is that, if you can plan ahead, align your trip during the high-tide period where the water will cover most of the muddy area around the island creating a beautiful reflection of the Mont Saint Michel making it even more magical.

Paris, France (4 Nights)

First and foremost, begin your day with a stroll around the Eiffel Tower and its surrounding parks

Ah... Paris, the crown jewel of France. No matter what people say about Paris, I still love the city a lot but maybe because I didn't care too much about doing all the touristy stuff in the city.

Another great view of the city is from the Pont Alexandre III bridge where you can see both the Eiffel Tower and the Seine river together in one frame

There are the usual places to visit like Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower, and the Louvre, and even though there will be a lot of tourists in these places, there are ways to avoid the crowds and enjoy these places in unique ways.

A much better place, in my opinion, is to go up the Arc de Triomphe instead

First, if you want to get a nice view of Paris, do not go up the Eiffel tower. Go up the Arc de Triomphe instead. It's less crowded, no need to line up and best of all, you get the view of Paris and the Eiffel Tower in it.

Visiting an empty Louvre on a Tuesday is my favorite things nobody do.

There are other secrets too like visiting Louvre on a Tuesday (when it's closed) so you can have the whole place to yourself if you don't mind not seeing the Mona Lisa or go down a dark path and explore the Catacomb of Paris.

You can also spend a day like I did hitting up all the hipster places around the city, away from tourists, with my hipster guide in Paris here

You can also spend another day cafe-hopping as there are countless cafes, book stores and parks that are super unique and void of tourists like the Le Pure Cafe, Strada Cafe, Honor cafe, San Francisco Book Co., and the Coulee Verte Rene Dumont park.

Chamonix, France (3 Nights)

Unbeatable view of Mont Blanc and the surrounding mountain range from Lac Blanc, Chamonix.

After visiting so many cities in France, I'm sure you are already itching for adventure so let's go and explore the French Alps.

The Grand Balcon Sud trail is a trail that goes along the side of a mountain above Chamonix

Chamonix is a beautiful mountain town located in the French Alps area near the famous Mont Blanc and other beautiful peaks we can explore on a hiking trail. It's only 6 hours away by train from Paris and 13 hours away by bus.

For the Lac Blanc trail, you will be able to see the alpine lake hidden in the French Alps and if you are there when the wind is calm, you might get to witness the beautiful reflection of the French Alps in the lake, creating the surreal symmetrical view of the mountain range

Since we will have 2 full days here, I would recommend you go and hike a combination of the Grand Balcon Sud trail and Lac Blanc trail which should take you around 8 - 12 hours to complete.

The beautiful morning light while hiking the Grand Balcon Sud, Chamonix.

This trail is just breathtaking through and through with the view of Mont Blanc and the surrounding mountain range parallel throughout the trail and at the end, you are rewarded with a beautiful Lac Blanc (white lake) reflecting all the peaks you just hiked passed.

On your second day, you can take it slow and instead of going for another hike, take a cable car up the Aiguille du Midi station and take a look at the French Alps from the other side

The next day, you can go up a cable car to the top of Aiguille du Midi. The view from up there is just mind-blowing and totally different from what you saw the day before. In fact, you can even see the whole trail you did the day before from up here.

Lyon, France (3 Nights)

A woman relaxing by the Rhône river in Lyon, France.

From Chamonix, you can take the train down to Lyon and spend a few days exploring this beautiful alternative city of France. Lyon is home to many creative sectors and it shows in the things you can do here.

After the basilica, you can stroll down the Fourvière hill and into the Vieux Lyon (Old Lyon), one of the oldest district in the city where you can find several old buildings from the 15th, 16th and 17th century which was erected during the silk industry boom in Lyon

You can spend the first day exploring all the historical buildings of Lyon starting from a climb up the Fourvière hill and visit the Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvièr.

While at the Vieux Lyon, be sure to spend some time and explore the Traboules, a narrow passageway that was used by the silk workers to get access to the water of the river Saône

Be sure to also explore the Ancient Theatre behind the basilica, the Old Lyon district (Vieux Lyon) and the super fun Musée Miniature et Cinéma.

Zermatt, Switzerland (3 Nights)

The whole glacier trail should take you around 2 hours to complete and you should end up at Trockener Steg cable car station

Now we come to Switzerland, crowned as the most beautiful country in the world so much that everyone is trying to replicate its reputation and become the Switzerland of Southeast Asia or the Switzerland of South America, etc.

By the time you arrive back in Zermatt, you should have completely exhausted all your energy while your money is still intact

We start off with the big one, a visit to the iconic Matterhorn peak in Zermatt. From Lyon, you can get a train to Geneva and from there to Lisp and to Zermatt in 7 hours at around 130 USD. Buses might be a bit cheaper but it's 9 hours and can be quite hectic switching buses.

One and a half hour of crazy steep and slippery climb, you should reach the Hörnli Hut, the last mountain hut that stood right under the mighty Matterhorn

For Zermatt, I would recommend you go on another one-day epic hike that will take you to Hörnli Hut, the highest point you can get without a mountaineering gear via trail #27 and #28 and hike down via the glacier trail (trail #26) and trail #25. That way, you will get to experience the Matterhorn as close as one can.

Around an hour of steady ground, you should reach an intersection with the option to either go left to the glacier or up to the Hörnli Hut

This hike will take you an entire day (10 hours) and so prepare accordingly. After that kind of hike, you will need another day to rest, which makes it a good time to exploring Zermatt itself.

Lucerne, Switzerland (2 Nights)

Lion Monument in Lucerne, exactly like I remembered almost 15 years ago when I was here as a child.

Lucerne is one of the few places I visited as a kid that I fondly remember. Places like the Chapel Bridge (Kapellbrücke) and its fiery history, the unique location of the Lion Monument, and the history of Museggmauer, Lucerne’s Old Town somehow ignite my memory of my time there when I was young. It's a great place to visit for a day before you move on to Zurich.

Zurich, Switzerland (2 Nights)

View of Zurich from Lindenhof, across the Limmat river.

Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland that is both beautiful as well as expensive. Places like the Altstadt (The Old Town) is a great place to get a glimpse of what Zurich is like in the Medieval time.

Me sitting on an elevated platform in Lindenhof overlooking Zurich, the Limmat river and the cathedral.

Across the Limmat river, there is a historic site called Lindenhof, an elevated platform that a Roman castle once stood. It sure is a place of great historical significance but it also makes a great viewpoint for us tourists to see Zurich, the Limmat and the cathedral from above.

Locals relaxing along the Limmat river where you can cruise along and see Zurich from a unique perspective.

You can also go on a boat and explore Zurich via the Limmat river, a great way to have a different perspective on a city like Zurich. You can find more information about the schedule of the Limmat cruise here.

Stuttgart, Germany (2 Nights)

Me exploring the forest around Stuttgart.

Coming from Zurich, you can take 3 hours bus to Stuttgart which should cost you no more than 11 EUR. Stuttgart is a city not many talk about in travel guides but I had a chance to stay there for a week with a local and was able to see some of the unique creative side of the city I didn't see anywhere else in Germany.

One of the many large historical buildings in Schlossplatz, Stuttgart.

The first place you should visit in Stuttgart is the Schlossplatz, one of the largest and most impressive squares in the city. Around the area, you will find several historical buildings, restaurants, and cafes that you can indulge yourself in.

Lines of beautiful houses in Stuttgart.

If you are looking for a nice lookout point, make sure that you make it all the way up to Stuttgart TV Tower (Fernsehturm Stuttgart), or the Killesberg Tower where you will be able to capture a panoramic view of Stuttgart from above.

Looking to buy something? Be sure to drop by the Markthalle (market hall) or walk along the Königstraße (King Street), a shopping street where you can buy all sorts of snacks or souvenirs for people back home.

Munich is the capital city of Bavaria, home to centuries-old buildings and its unique Bavarian heritage where the cliche culture you see portrayed in movies are from.

Climb St. Peter's Church in the Morning

Most of the cool places to visit are concentrated in the Marienplatz area so spend a day exploring that district. Go up the St. Peter’s Church to get a nice view of Munich from above, or visit Nymphenburg Palace for half a day.

You can spend another day visiting Neuschwanstein castle located only an hour away from Munich.

After exploring Munich thoroughly, you can spend another day visiting Neuschwanstein castle located only an hour away from Munich.

Nuremberg, Germany (2 Nights)

The Imperial Castle was built hundreds of years ago and the surrounding area is concentrated with historical buildings some of which are converted into a museum where you can learn the medieval history of Germany

From Munich, you can take a bus to Nuremberg, a place where you can experience German history up close. The Imperial Castle is the highlight of Nuremberg and a must-visit when you are there.

Visit the Imperial Castle in the morning in Nuremberg and you will be rewarded with a stunning view of the city.

The castle was built hundreds of years ago and the surrounding area is concentrated with historical buildings some of which are converted into a museum where you can learn the medieval history of Germany.

Unbeatable view of Nuremberg from the Sinwell Tower.

Be sure to get up the Sinwell Tower so that you can get a 360° panoramic view of Nuremberg from above.

Cologne, Germany (2 Nights)

Home to one of the oldest university in Germany, Cologne is considered to be a university city, which in turn brings out a lively vibe you usually get from a creative and young population.

Cologne is a cultural capital located on the Rhine river. Home to one of the oldest university in Germany, Cologne is considered to be a university city, which in turn brings out a lively vibe you usually get from a creative and young population.

One of the most famous landmarks that define the city is the giant Cologne Cathedral. Despite the size and the interior, you can also climb up to the top of one of the tower and get a 360° view of the city from above.

I'm not a big fan of Cologne too much (because I got my bag stolen there) but I gotta give credit to the beauty of the cathedral. Don't make the same mistake as I do though and you will enjoy Cologne more than I did. 😅

Hamburg, Germany (2 Nights)

Warehouse District (Speicherstadt) in Hamburg, Germany.

Hamburg is a city located by the river Elbe and home to the second largest port in Europe so the best place to visit is the Warehouse District (Speicherstadt) located there.

One of the many beautiful buildings around the Warehouse District in Hamburg, Germany.

Speicherstad stretches over 1.6 km along a canal and with its unique red-brick building crisscrossing the canals along the side, it makes the area the perfect place to walk around and admire the architecture.

There are also places like the Miniatur Wunderland museum, the Hamburg Rathaus City Hall and the Elbtunnel (old underground tunnel) that are worth a visit when you are there.
