Christmas Markets 2014

Jump to last reply

I know this is a little advanced, but trying to do as much research as possible. My friends are I are trying to plan a Christmas Market tour in Europe for 2014. We are hoping to leave some time the last week of November and plan to spend just under 2 weeks there. Obviously with us traveling from Canada (west coast) and the US (east coast), we will need a day or 2 to adjust to the time difference. We're exploring two options:

1. Christmas Market River Cruise
2. Do it Yourself Christmas Market Tour

While we like the ideal of the river cruise, there may be a child/children (my friends are hoping to adopt) traveling with us and I know the cruise company requires that a child be at least 8 years of age and pay full fare. Since we have that unknown factor, I thought the DIY option might be better suited for our travel needs.

I know that we would like to see Vienna and Nuremberg, Germany. Any thoughts on a base city where we could travel by rail to Vienna and Nuremberg? Are we being too ambitious (too much travel distance) to think we can visit both during the same trip? What other cities would you recommend we visit?

Any input/insight would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Lara
