Christmas dilemma

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a trip to Europe in early December. (7 to 11),
I'd love to see the famous Chrismas markets and experience a typical European Christmas. I heard good things about Germany and Austria, but also Prague and Strasbourg. I'd like a city with a beautiful Christmas atmosphere, but also a that can keep us busy for 4 days. Right now, I'm torn between 5 plans:

A) Paris+day trip to Strasbourg. (already been to Paris, but never in Winter)
B) Vienna
C) Prague
D) Berlin
E) Munich

I chose Berlin because the accommodation is really cheap and I heard it has a great Christmas market, but I guess Prague, Paris and Vienna are more picturesque during Christmas? Which plan would your recommend? Other suggestions are welcome.
Thank you
