It´s up to you :)

The Eurailpass is a good mix of flexibility (to change the Route) and money saving :)

The best is two have a Journey in your mind and buy a pass that fit´s best to your journey :) Continouspass or Flexible Pass, From just 4days in one month up to 3month continouss validity are bookable :)

The detailed routes and everything can be planned later :) (Like will i take the 8am train or the 4pm one :D )

NOte-as you speak Espanol and hence are likely to visit Espana: THAT is the country where a RailPass like EU/INterrail is of rather mixed value-ALL trains need to be booked and you have to pay a sometimes quite high Suplemento and Reservacion for each trip made there. Out of Espana you have to pass France/ia and a bit less but the same applies there. We have seen so many bitter complaints from people about this here. It can be done-but you have been warned.

But you can change your mind till you come at the estacion and see f.e. that a train does not run or an other interesting place.
