2 Weeks Austria December 2015

Together with my wife we are planning our December 2015 2 weeks vacation, I know it is still early, but we need to make plans especially for hotels. 5 years ago in May we visited Austria and based ourselves in Innsbruck, Salzburg and Vienna. We really liked Austria, and I love Vienna. We are thinking of going back there again this time, do you think if I use the same bases it will be nice? This time I would like to take some day trips by trains, any recommendation? Also apart from doing the same thing, what about Munich > Salzburg > Vienna, or Salzburg > Graz > Vienna. We are not into skiing, but if there is a nice easy day trip to some mountains we can do. I will travel by train.

Graz is a handsome town and one of our favorite places in Austria. It has excellent Christmas markets.

Plenty of places to enjoy the regional wines and food (including Styrian pumpkin oil). From Graz, you could even build a night in Ljubljana, Slovenia, into your holiday (about 3.5 hours from Graz by the direct -- no changes -- train).

Of course Munich is fab too. I am a little less a fan of Salzburg than I used to be -- it has long been a popular tourist destination, of course, but when i was there at the end of August/beginning of September this year, it was much more crowded than I had expected.

Well you will be there in winter versus summer so the weather - and scenery - will be a lot different. And yes, you can easily get into the mountains for winter sports from Salzburg and Innsbruck.
