Austria and Prague

Jump to last reply

We will be visiting Salzburg (3days), Vienna (3 days) and Prague for 2 days at the end of September/beginning of October. We have a loose itinerary planned for Salzburg and Vienna so far, and nothing planned for Prague other than the hotel.
We will be flying into Munich and immediately taking the train to Salzburg staying at Pension Katrin. We plan on exploring the old town first afternoon, then heading to Werfen to see the ice caves and Hohenwerfen. The following day we would like to take in some good hiking or possibly an adventure activity such as horseback riding or paragliding, we are open to renting a car this day if necessary.

We will then train to Vienna staying at San Souci Wien (Got a great deal on this new hotel!). We want to explore Schonbrunn Palace, see the Spanish Riding School morning practice and experience the wonderful cafe culture and restaurants. We also want to take a day trip to Melk an bike along the Danube and visit some wineries along the way.

We then want to take the train to Prague, staying at the Merchants Yard hotel in the old town. With realistically only 1.5 days in Prague we have no solid plans other than exploring the old town and the castle.

Looking for advice on our current plans or any possible activities to try to include such as concerts, walking tours or food/wine/beer activities. We are an active couple in our mid 30s, we like active days but like to enjoy the activities we choose to do rather than try to see every site. Also I'd love any advice on crafts, food/spirits and jewelry unique to the areas for souvenirs. Asa always any advice is appreciated.
