Itinerary Help - Christmas Markets

Jump to last reply

Good afternoon, I was hoping to get a little bit of advice on my itinerary for a trip this Nov/Dec. My boyfriend and I visited Europe for the first time last year and have decided to make it an annual event! This year I really wanted to visit Christmas markets so we are flying out on Thanksgiving day and spending our time in Budapest, Vienna and Prague. I was hoping to get some suggestions on my itinerary!

Schedule:
Nov 24th - Depart US for Budapest
Nov 25th - Arrive Budapest (morning)
Nov 25th - 28th explore Budapest
Nov 29th - Early train from Budapest to Vienna
Nov 29th - Dec 2nd explore Vienna
Dec 3rd - Early train from Vienna to Prague
Dec 3rd - Dec 6th explore Prague
Dec 7th - fly home from Prague

I would like to take a trip to Szentendre during our time in Budapest, this appears to be pretty easy and shouldn't take too much time. Does anybody know if they have a Christmas market?

During our time in Vienna I am contemplating a trip to Salzburg. I know the train is expensive and it's a long journey, but I've been told Christmas in Salzburg is magical and I would love to experience it. We both are early risers so we could take the very early train (5:30 or 6:30) and be in Salzburg for breakfast and then leave around dinner time. Has anybody done this, is it a really bad idea? Neither of us really mind the travel time and I would love to get at least a glimpse of the Alps. Thoughts? Suggestions?

Are there any interesting, short, day trips from our base cities or should we just focus on those cities? Again, my focus on this trip is Christmas markets so if anybody has any suggestions of a must see that is somewhere along our itinerary let me know!

Thanks!
