1) The only way Austria is getting Lombardy back is if it's willing to fight France again. In fact, chances are Napoleon III might intervene anyway, either to force the Austrians out of Venetia (he was determined to expel them from the Italian Peninsula) or to grab a share of the Prussian Rhineland. Or maybe even to help Prussia.

2) Denmark getting back Holstein is a big no-no. The province offers the Austrians access to northern Germany, the Danes didn't really want it (their focus was on Schleswig) and giving it to them is a surefire way for Austria to insult German national feeling. Hell, even giving the Danes Schleswig is iffy.

3) Unified Hesse, Thuringia and Mecklenburg make no sense.

4) Luxembourg was Dutch. How did the Bavarians get it?

(Just as an idea:) Denmark may have offered to help Austria in the war, when Austria was in a rather bad situation, and gained Holstein in exchange back^^

That could work. I'd also like the idea of "independent" duchy of Schleswig-Holstein under Habsburg rule though.

Maybe if Austria manages to form a German Empire (or Empire of Germany/of the German), Denmark would be one of the Empire's member states and therefore somehow "controled" by Austria, but could also gain some privileges compared to the other smaller states (more delegates in the Parliament, more autonomous than the other states...).

It also could at least help to explain Austria's victory over Prussia: When Prussian troops were fighting in the South against Austria, Denmark attacked from the exposed north because this "you-get-Schleswig/Holstein-back-if.you-help-us-and-become-a-rather-independent-part-of-our-empire"-thing was negotiated before the war. Just as a quick idea^^
