Christmas in Vienna then 3 weeks?

Jump to last reply

Hi All, We are a family of five (kids 15,18 and 20 so really adults) and have last minute booked flights in and out of Vienna from 21st December unitl10th Jan. Our children have never seen snow (coming from Australia), so we had hoped for a white Christmas, and some time to explore Austria and Germany. We have to book two rooms everywhere we go, so have already had a fright at expenses, particularly in Vienna. We plan to spend 5 nights in Vienna, and in some order would like to see Salzburg, Munich and some picturesque places in Germany, or possibly Prague. Travelling with five adults, what would be the best way to do things; is driving even a good idea to save costs (my hubbie is keen on this as he thinks we can wander around at our leisure in the small pretty towns) ? Is the fact that it will be very cold a disadvantage in getting everywhere by train? How do you get from the station to a B&B in places easily, with luggage? I would appreciate any thoughts on a basic itinerary that starts and finishes in Vienna. Sorry to sound so naïve, but I have never travelled in Europe with all the family. It's easier if there is just one or two of you! We thought it might be nice to spend 3-4 days in winter chalet somewhere and do some day trips from there. Any thoughts? Cheers, Sue
