My wife and I are flying into Budapest and out of Prague. We will arrive in Budapest around 6:20 PM on a Monday and will stay for 5 nights. We will have 4 full days for Budapest. Are there any recommended day trips from Budapest? I'm sure there is plenty to do there for 4 days without side trips but we can adjust our plans if needed. Our plan is to go to Prague for 5 more nights and are considering a stop in Vienna for a few hours in transit from Budapest to Prague. Is that doable? Would it be better to skip Vienna and just head straight to Prague? If so, flight vs train suggestions? Here is how the timeline would look:
Day 1 (Sunday) - Depart US (11:20 PM)
Day 2 (Monday) - arrive Budapest early evening, have dinner
Day 3 (Tuesday) - Budapest
Day 4 (Wednesday) - Budapest
Day 5 (Thursday) - Budapest/day trip?
Day 6 (Friday) - Budapest/day trip?
Day 7 (Saturday) - Transit to Prague via Vienna
Day 8 (Sunday) - Prague
Day 9 (Monday) - Prague
Day 10 (Tuesday) - Cesky Krumlov day trip
Day 11 (Wednesday) - Prague/day trip?
Day 12 (Thursday) - Fly home (11:20 AM)
Thanks in advance!
