Well, after my last trip to Italy and Germany, my wife and I made a plan to go back this year for our anniversary. With a baby on the way, that made it impossible, so we decided on this coming Christmas. So, we're headed out December 19th and staying through January 4th. We are starting in Rome, then flying to Vienna, then to Munich then to Paris and finally home. While in Vienna, I'm planning a day trip to Prague to see a buddy from college, then while in Munich a day trip to Nuremberg and possibly Salzburg. I know this is early to start any real planning, so I'll be bookmarking and bumping the thread in about 8 months, but to my fellow Eurogetbiggers, based on the cities I've named, what else besides the stereotypical stuff should I engage in?

When you hit Vienna and you're ready for a beer, let me know.

Will do. Also, while reading about the Ottoman Empire, they refer to the Walls of Vienna, are these walls still there? Or is it just a big circular road on the inner part of the city.

Maybe next time. I'll look you up on my summer 2014 Euro trip. Planning on hitting Eastern Europe and St Petersburg.

We are, quite literally, in the same boat although we just stuck to London and the surrounding towns our first trip...now we are planning to hit up Germany/Austria for our 5 year.

Should be fun. If we go during the same time, PM me, we'll grab a beer, do push ups in the street and have our wives take photos us with our sleeves rolled up giving the point and thumbs up.

Some remnants/mini walls are still there - they enhance the multicultural vibe greatly.
Looking forward to meet an all American getbigger.

My wife wanted to see Paris, and to tell you the truth, I kind of did as well. I'm gonna take the Chunnel to London and check that out. I agree, I liked Italy as well. Last year, we did Rome, Florence, Venice and Verona. You're right, food was awesome. I figured Paris would be a bit uppity, but I wanted to "check that box" at least once while in Europe.

I'm partial to Heidelberg, which isn't that far from Munich. The old town, overlooked by the old castle is quite nice. As it's a university town, and near to Mannheim (US mil. base) it's very young and international. Food is not great, although there are a few exceptions (Vinothek Oskar). Also everything's in walking distance, provided you park in/near the old centre (P13 ideally).

Couldn't find the vid but the best advice I ever heard was when Rick Steves was talking about using universally recognized words to communicate with the locals and advised American travelers:

"Don't say 'My car has broken down.'

Say 'Auto: Kaput!'"

Anyone got any suggestions for a good Wagner opera?  Was gonna go to a Mozart symphony in Vienna or Salzburg, and Wagner in Munich.
