November in Vienna and ??? : Questions

Jump to last reply

After a marvelous time in Budapest last November, I am once again considering a few days at the Christmas markets in Europe during and around Thanksgiving in the U.S. Our second winter visit will focus on several days in Vienna, a city we've visited a couple of times in the past, both in summer, and one or two other places.

Option 1, Ljubljana and Trieste: Which of the two has more to see and do in late November? I'm trying to think about which to spend more time. Also is Graz doable and worth a stopover from Vienna to Ljubljana?

Option 2, Krakow: Most trains from Vienna to Krakow transit through the Czech Republic. Is there someplace worth a stop for one or two nights?

Option 3, staying put in Austria: If we spend all our time (somewhere between 9 and 11 nights) in Austria, we would want to take day trips and / or short overnights out of Vienna. Two that come to mind are the Wachau Valley and the Salzkammergut region, both which seem gorgeous in warmer months but which I cannot seem to find information about for winter visits. Are they worthwhile in late November or will it be "dead" during the low season? Are walks / hikes possible during this time of year?

Other suggestions also welcome and appreciated. Thanks.
