Hi. I am going to spend my very first Christmas alone overseas, in both Germany and Austria. I am planning on taking the guided city bus tours as well as attending church there. I hope to see the places where Beethoven rented and lived. I will spend at least a weekend in Vienna, spending one Sunday at St. Stephen's cathderal, hearing the Vienna boys choir sing. I hope some museums will be open, especially ones in regards to antique musical instruments, etc. Does anyone out there have any suggestions as to an itinerary? Also, I am gutsy enough to be travelling without amy tour package, so I still need to make last minute reservations online for accomodations in Germany and later in Vienna.
Also, what is the food like? What would one recommend for transportation during this time of year? I will be walking a lot, but probably be taking the train, subway, and bus.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
