Going to europe, any suggestions

I'm headed to europe.
I got a Nikon D50 with a standard 18-55mm, and 55-200mm, and also rented a 12-24mm. Any suggestions on other stuff I'll need to take some good pictures of towers and buildings there? Any tips is welcomed.

Definitely a flash and tripod if you are going to be taking any pictures inside museums, churches, or basically anywhere indoors. However, most museums will not let you use your tripod or flashes. The flash pops will fade the art and the tripods would cause a pile up of people (according to the security guards). I even had my tripod taken away at a few places even though I wasn't using it
I took 90% of my pictures with the 12-24mm so that was a good pickup. Don't know where you are headed, but Rome is highly recommended!

I got a tripod, but not a flash. Outdoors probably won't need flash right? Going to Frankfurt, Paris, Zurich, and Salzburg. Going to drive the autobahn and then head to the Stelvio Pass in Swiss/Italian Alps. The one they drove on Top Gear.

Ya I saw some pics taken with 12mm and looked very nice so rented one for like $60 for the whole trip...

If you can manage, I'd highly recommend you train to Portugal and visit the Moorish Castle and Palacio Pena in Sintra... both are great photo opportunities, not to mention the town of Sintra itself.

Probably won't be able to make it to portugal. Too short of a trip. You guys think Salzburg is worth spending 2 nights in?
