Holiday Itinerary

Jump to last reply

I'm still in the early planning phase of visiting Germany, Austria, and Czech Republic, and I haven't quite convinced my husband that it's an okay/safe time to visit Europe, but this is what I have so far. Any suggestions or ideas?

12/19 Arriving in Frankfurt
12/20 Nuremberg
12/21 Nuremberg
12/22 Munich
12/23 Salzburg
12/24 Salzburg
12/25 Salzburg
12/26 Vienna
12/27 Vienna
12/28 Vienna
12/29 Prague
12/30 Prague
12/31 Prague
1/1 Head back to Frankfurt

We'll have our kids in tow (7 and almost 4 years old) and Frankfurt has nonstop flights, which is why we're not flying directly to Munich unless necessary.

I'm not very familiar with these countries yet, but have always wanted to go during the holidays. Does anyone have any day trips or tour suggestions? Kid friendly spots would be a bonus! And any part of this itinerary that I should trim or add to?

From what I've read online, the Christmas market ends on 12/24 in Nuremberg and Munich, 12/26 in Salzburg and Vienna, and 1/6 in Prague - so we should be good there.

I briefly looked up trains to and from each destination and was shocked at how much a couple of them were. €264 for a 2 hour train from Salzburg to Vienna? €284 for a 4 hour train from Vienna to Prague? Are these the most cost effective ways to get to those places?

And lastly, does anyone have any encouraging words for my husband who is nervous to travel after so many terrible events lately?

Thank you all!
