Me and a bunch of my friends (all around 30s) are planning to visit Prague during xmas. We are landing in Prague on 22nd of December 2018 and plan to stay till 27th (this is flexible). Then the plan is to move on towards Vienna (stay there till 1st) and then fly back to Bangalore. The flights are already blocked. The tentative itinerary is
22/Dec (Sat) - 14:00 - Land in Prague
23/Dec (Sun) - Day trip to Dresden (xmas markets) via train / bus (please suggest options)
24/Dec (Mon) - Enjoy xmas markets in Prague and Xmas eve. Concerts, food, etc...
25/Dec (Tue) - Day trip to Karlovy Vary (train / bus)? or Local prague sights
26/Dec (Wed) - Prague local
27/Dec (Thu) - Drive down to Cesky Krumlov and stay the night
28/Dec (Fri) - Drive down to Vienna
29/Dec (Sat) - Vienna local
30/Dec (Sun) - Vienna local or a nearby day trip (appreciate suggestions)
31/Dec (Mon) - NYE celebration in Vienna
1/Jan (Tue) - Fly out of Vienna
1. We are planning to rent a car only for the drive down from Prague to Vienna so we can stop and enjoy the sights on the way. How feasible is this during the winter? Snow, road clearance, etc...
2. Is there anything else that we should be looking to include / exclude in our itinerary based on the time at which we are coming.
3. Any suggestions for day trips from Vienna. Maybe skiing or snowboarding etc.?
Appreciate all your responses. Thank you so much for taking the time and reading this post.
Cheers. Can't wait to appreciate the amazing beauty of Czechia and Austria.
