Christmas in the Alps

Jump to last reply

Hi, I'm looking to get some suggestions on a trip I'm taking this winter. My boyfriend and I booked flights a few weeks ago roundtrip from Chicago to Munich leaving December 20th to January 3rd. We were planning to travel through Germany and Austria, and possibly either Switzerland or France for a few days. We really just started doing our research on where/what to do, but I thought it would be nice to get some feedback from actual people.

About us:
We're both in our mid-twenties. We love trying new foods, going on adventures, getting drinks at neat pubs, and on occasion going to a nightclub (if it's worth seeing). We'd like to see some shows, like the ballet or opera, or whatever you think is worth seeing. We're looking to do a few days of skiing, visiting markets, and ice skating. We're debating on renting a car and doing the drives ourselves or taking trains. (Please tell us what you think would be the most cost effective/time effective option)

We're planning on staying in Berlin for New Years Eve and The Black Forest for the few days before. We were thinking of spending 2 days in Munich either in the beginning or end of our trip. Aside from those plans, we haven't decided what to do for the rest of our time.

Where do you think is the best place to spend our Christmas Eve and Christmas day is? I've heard a lot of the towns shut down and it's impossible to find meals. Do you have any suggestions of where we should stay/what to do that day? At this point, we've heard Vienna is a good option, but we're open to any smaller towns or other country suggestions too. We are staying with friends in the Black Forest and Berlin, so we don't mind spending money on a four or five star hotel or going to an expensive restaurant, as long as it would make a good christmas.

Also, do you think that traveling through Munich, Vienna, the Black Forest, and Berlin in 14 days is enough time? And, do you think we should visit Switzerland or France over Austria? I'd love to hear any suggestions on restaurants, bars, shows, hotels, or activities we should go to or do.

Thanks so much!
Claire
