Too much time in Germany. Eastern Europe is so amazing that you should spend more time Croatia/Slovenia/Montenegro/etc.

Am guessing your trip got cancelled :,) but for future reference:

Munich isn't the most interesting, but do visit the Christmas Markets if you're there at the right time since they originated from Germany. Considering how packed your itinerary is, I'd put 2 days max. You can consider taking a train down to the Neuschwanstein Castle as well for a day trip! Hamburg wasn't in my itinerary when I went but I heard so many good things about it (and that Stuttgart wasn't comparatively as interesting).

Budapest I'd give it 2-3 days max!

Auschitwz I'd recommend a tour! It's much more accessible and convenient this way (and not a lot more expensive). Haven't been to Wroclaw, but Gdansk was lovely and if you have time I'd definitely recommend it.
