Which Christmas Market Itinerary for 2010?

Jump to last reply

I know it's early, but I am looking at a brochure that offers two very different itineraries. Both look appealing, for different reasons. Maybe some of you can help me decide.

First, let me say that this would be my first organized tour. I did a solo trip for Christmas Markets in 2008, but did not enjoy it as much as I expected. It was quite a distance from most train stations to the markets, and a bit lonely with no one to share the experience.

Second, it is not so much the markets themselves that interest me as it is the scenery and general ambiance of the areas and towns.

Third, I sometimes walk with a cane and would like towns/hotels where I can easily stroll about on my own if I don't want to go on group day trip.

Both of these tours start and end in Munich, with first and last nights at the Kempinski Airport Hotel. Here are my choices:

OPTION 1:
Innsbruck, 2 nights, Grand Hotel Europa (day visit Hall in Tirol & crystal factory)
Bolzano, 3 nights, Hotel Stiegl (day visits to Ortisei and Merano)
Garmisch: 1 night, Reindl's Partenkirchner Hof

I have always wanted to see the Alps!

OPTION 2:
Annaberg, 3 nights, Hotel Wilder Mann (day trips to Regensberg, Erzgebirge Mts,Seiffen)
Weimer, 1 night, Hotel Elephant (stop in Leipzig)
Bamberg, 2 nights, Romantik Hotel Messerschmitt (day trip Lauscha)

Hotels and towns appear to be smaller and more charming on this itinerary!

Welcome any/all advice!
