Christmas/New Year's Salzburg/Munich Opinion

Jump to last reply

I am finalizing trip plans for myself, my son (22) and my daughter (14). My son will be spending the next four months in Ireland and we have decided to meet and spend Christmas together. After much reading of posts and trip reports I have decided (I think!) on Salzburg for Christmas and Munich for New Year's.

Rough itinerary is as follows:
Arrive in Munich (due to airline availability) on 12/21,
night of 12/21 in Munich to rest
Train to Salzburg 12/22
Stay in Salzburg 12/22-12/29
I would like to visit the markets around Lake Wolfgangsee, visit the ice caves, go to midnight mass and take an overnight to Vienna.
12/29 depart for Munich
I would like to visit the sights there, visit Neufschwanstein Castle and I have heard Munich is a fun place to spend New Year's eve.
Depart for home on 1/3

My questions are:
Does the time I've allotted seem good?
Do you agree with Munich for New Years or would Vienna (or another place?) be better.
Is an overnight trip to Vienna sufficient?

I chose Salzburg as it seemed smaller and more manageable during the Christmas season but I am open to suggestions including Vienna for Christmas with an overnight to Salzburg.

Thanks so much for any input.
