Christmas Market 2014 Itinerary help

Jump to last reply

Hi, I need help in planning an itinerary to see the Christmas markets in the following places:

1. Berlin
2. Dresden
3. Salzburg
4. Vienna
5. Prague
6. Nuremberg

Here are my questions:

1- Where would be my base city? What cities/towns can be day trips?(Or would be going home hard at night because it'll be late, which would necessitate an overnight?)
2- If I do an open jaw flight from the US, where would I fly in and out of?
3- We would be traveling with a 5 year old so we want to be realistic, especially with the weather. We really dread the winter but we just brave it because of the Christmas market. We only experienced one when we were in London last Christmas and we were already happy with it, so we're looking forward to this trip:)
4- Are there parts that I can travel by train? and others by car? Or do I need to rent a car the whole trip?
5- Would this be easier if we were to do a river cruise?
6- Most importantly, we need to be able to attend a midnight Catholic mass on the 24th, where do you suggest we do this?
7- If a lot of places will be closed on the 25th, what can we do on that day?

Any other tips are appreciated:)

Thanks so much in advance!

J.
