I am flopping like a beached mackerel! I will be in Vienna for six days in December with two of my adult daughters. I recently asked about a day trip and decided upon Budapest, a 2:20 train ride each way. I then bought tickets. wmt1 then graciously volunteered superb Budapest tips and information that I copied and then mapped out.
Yesterday, while re-watching television shows regarding the Christmas Markets that I recorded two years ago and kept, all seem to feature Salzburg and it is very appealing. Salzburg too is about a 2:20 train ride.
So do I take a loss on the Budapest tickets and switch to Salzburg? Our primary interest is the Christmas Markets. Which city might have things different from the offerings in the Vienna Christmas Markets? I could fo both, one on Thursday and the other on Saturday, but that is a LOT of traveling.
I apologize for being such a pain and so undecided, but I am getting up in age and do not know how many more times I can take this trip and this is the first time with both daughters, so I want it to be memorable and special.
