My wife and I will be on a Budapest-to-Nuremberg river cruise in early December followed by a few days in Prague. Is a day trip from Prague to Freiberg and Seiffen possible and worth the travel time? We would plan to hire a car and driver to get us there. It would be on a weekday and staying overnight is not possible. Is weather (snow) a possible concern for driving in the Ore Mountains in early December?
We enjoy walking and viewing architecture, shops, Christmas atmosphere, learning about other cultures, etc. I've read several articles about these towns so I believe they are worth visiting. I'm just not sure if that is possible and/or wise to do from Prague.
Would it be better to consider a day trip to Dresden or Cesky Krumlov? Several of the popular day-trip castles near Prague (including Cesky Krumlov) are closed in December, or at least on the day we have available.
