Trip Report Christmas Market Battle: Vienna/Salzburg/Munich

Jump to last reply

Normally I do not start trip reports until I am actually ON a trip. I have no desire, or need, for anyone to chime in with the "Have a great trip" posts which some people who report, "I am leaving soon" seem to require. I'll resurrect the thread as time passes but the thread about the Manchester Christmas Market prompted me to start this thing now.

We are not doing this trip because of Christmas markets. In fact, Christmas markets are about the last thing we would go all to Europe to see. However, it appears that by simple happenstance there will be these extravaganzas set up in all three of the cities we will visit in ten days (gee, I hope we aren't going to be told we are traveling "too fast" to get the proper depth (LOL), but we've been to these places before although in the case of Vienna, more than 40 years ago!!).

We are packed and ready to leave this Thursday and being "ready" more than a few hours prior is unusual for us! We have decided to do the whole thing with carry-on luggage only for a (big) change. Have the cold weather gear at the ready (mainly very compressible/packable down jackets and added scarves, knit caps, and gloves just in case it gets really cold inside the taxi).

The Christmas Market thing should be interesting and I will endeavor to report in some sort of objective way on the ones thrown up into our path. Thus far I am most familiar with the ones in Berlin where I saw everything from illuminated salt crystals to straw ornaments for sale along with those carnival-style "huts" serving numerous drinkable concoctions; everything embellished with fir trees, colored lights, etc.

For now I have to finish the necessity of housework, get the guestroom ready for the pet sitter, and wait out this Thursday; I'll be up around 2:00 AM that morning to print out our European airline segment boarding passes and looking forward to reporting.

See you later.
