Train from Nuremberg to Vienna - scenic?

Jump to last reply

Dear All - I'm planning a Christmas market holiday - (1 traveler - me) - I will fly in to Nuremberg, spending a few days in Germany ( Nuremberg, Regensberg, Rothenberg ob der Tauber by train), I would like to spend a few days in Vienna and fly back to the US from Vienna. I need a flight from Nuremberg to Vienna - Air Berlin charges around $100 one-way for a 1 hour trip. One-way train is 93 Euros and takes around 5 hours.
My questions:
1. Would you take the train or the plane? 5 hours on a train seems like a lot, but - if the scenery is pretty - even in the winter - it is worth it - part of the vacation, I like trains, especially if they are clean and the scenery is pretty - rather than the hassle of going into an airport, taking a train from the Vienna airport into Vienna.
2. If I end up flying, I will purchase my airline ticket now. If I decide to take the train instead, should I book my ticket now? I think once purchased, I will not be able to change the time or date.
3. What is the best website to purchase the train ticket?
Thank you so much!
