How big of a backpack do I need for 2 weeks in Europe?

Posted on Mon 13 June 2022 in Travel

We recommend a mid-sized carry on backpack under 40L for maximum flexibility across airlines and regions. This size is small enough to be comfortable on your back and easily maneuvered around trains and hostels. You'll be able to fit one to two weeks of clothing which you can re-wear and wash on longer Eurotrips.
