Prague/Vienna/Budapest

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone! My husband and I are having a heck of a time deciding how to divide our trip to Central Europe this November and I'm hoping I can get a little feedback. We're going to be in Europe for 10 days (including the day we get there, at 8am). We never wait in line for anything, we feel like the only tourists in most places, and the Christmas markets are usually in full swing!

This year round trip tickets to Budapest were crazy cheap and we couldn't pass it up even though we usually like to do open jaw. We decided to do Budapest/Vienna/Prague, and we'll stop in Bratislava on our way back to Budapest so we can break up the 6/7 hour train ride. Our travel style is usually such that we move pretty quickly through the "attractions" so to speak, and then take our time wandering around getting lost/taking in the architecture/sitting in cafes and restaurants.

This my long-winded way of asking - anyone who has been to these cities, which did you like best and why? I've dreamed for years of going to Prague, but interestingly, as I do my research Budapest really stands out to me as a place that has a lot of the character and great areas for just wandering that I really love. I have a lot of friends that say Vienna was just the best, but while I love palaces and museums, there's only so many I can see before I feel I'm doing them an injustice because they blend together. In fact I had been considering cutting a day from Vienna, but my friends have me questioning that choice. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!
