Help Making Xmas Vacation Decisions

Jump to last reply

We are planning a family trip for about a week over Christmas/New Year's break and have narrowed possibilities down to the following combinations, taking trains between the cities.

A) Brussels, Luxembourg, Cologne

B) Prague, Dresden, Berlin

C) Prague, Vienna, Budapest

-We haven't been to any of the places on the list before, but understand that there will be lovely Christmas Markets, concerts & other special holiday events and New Year's celebrations at each.

-It seems in all the cities, Xmas eve through the day after Xmas much will be closed (but we don't know how much this varies by city, and how much it will handicap us as visitors).

-We've read that New Year's in Vienna and Berlin are quite notable, but they might be equally interesting for different reasons in the other cities.

-The weather, as we understand it, will likely be warmer but wetter in option A, and possibly bitterly cold in B & C.

All things being equal, if your family could take one of these trips over the winter holidays, which would you choose & why?

Thanks for your input!
