Mike,

Have you considered Spain? You can stretch your money out there a bit more than in Germany (though not as well as Eastern Europe) and you can see a lot of variety.

Also, 2 weeks in Vienna seems like a lot unless you have family/friends there. I think 3-4 days is probably enough, maybe an even week if you want to make a side trip or two to Bratislava (about an hour away by train). Prague isn't too far, and neither is Budapest.

Let me recommend that you hang out around Schoenbrunn palace because they hold concerts there, weekly? I ended up catching a Mozart/Strauss concert in the Grand Hall (though I think those are more rare, once a month or thereabouts). The Wombat has two hostels and judging from their Munich city and Vienna city locations I am sure the Lounge is great also.

My and my fiancee plan on being in Benelux, Germany, Austria, and Italy towards the end of May through June. Would love to meet up with any Tpunks while there! We plan on hitting Amsterdam, Brussels, Berlin, Innsbruck, Salzburg, Florence, and maybe a quick fly-over to Dublin to name a few.
