Christmas 2012 Germany/ Austria

Jump to last reply

We are available to leave the US on the 22nd and return by January 2nd. We don't necessarily need to travel all of those days, but basically, I am a teacher and those are the dates I have off.

Anyhow, we are a family traveling with a 1 year old and a 3 year old and are seeking a charming, magical Christmas experience. Someone on this forum described a lovely experience at the Salzburg Christmas mass. We would also love to experience Christmas markets (although we know we are limited by our dates) and maybe the romantic road to Hohenschwangau. A sleigh ride sounds lovely. Innsbruck and St Gilgen look pretty too. Wondering if we should venture to Prague? Liked the sound of Annaberg-Bucholz and the surround towns, but sounds a little far afield if we are concentrating on Bavaria/ Salzburg. My husband is keen on driving and jetting from place to place. My thoughts are to take a more leisurely pace, especially given the kids. However, we also can't just sit around and read books in a cafe, because the kids would never sit still for that sort of thing.

Help us to narrow down a nice itinerary.

Also, any tips on traveling with young children in this region?

Your ideas are appreciated!
