Christmas Markets 2014

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a trip this year to the Christmas markets in Germany and Prague. It will be my second trip to Europe, the first one was with a tour company (I was going alone so thought it was safer). This time I'm going with one of my cousins so I feel a little braver about doing the arrangements myself.

That brings me to my first question: when do I start making reservations and buying plane tickets? Is it too soon now?

I have kind of settled on a schedule except for the first city. I'm thinking flying in to Frankfurt to either Rothenburg ob der Tauber or Bamberg (can't decide) then Nuremberg, Prague, Dresden and Berlin. Two nights each because I don't want to rush from place to place. Any opinions on Rothenburg or Bamberg greatly appreciated. I really want to see one of those old towns and they both look beautiful.

So my next question: both Dresden and Berlin have a few markets, which one in each city is a must visit? I ask because although I was inspired to do this trip by the christmas markets that is not all I want to do, I want to take time to visit other places of interest so knowing where to go will be very helpful in planning.

And last (for now), I'm not used to weather under 70 F (Puerto Rico) so I've read about temperatures and what to wear and people always say layers. But how many? All light layers or some heavier ones? This is what I'm thinking, a cami, long sleeve shirt , sweater and coat on top. Tights, leggings and corduroy pants (someone told me jeans are not good). Is that too much?

I know it's a lot so any help on any one topic would be appreciated. Thanks!
