        Very easy easy in Vienna, (brothels are easy to access) but expensive.

        bumping for Budapest

        vienna has shit nightlife

        Also this, but Vienna is worth visiting for the history alone

    two weeks for those two cities seems like a bit of an overshoot, if I were you I'd definitely include Budapest in my initerary

      you think it's not enough time to soak in those 2 cities?

        I think anon is saying it's too much time just for two cities and to add a little more variety

          Ah I see, yea maybe I can add one more in there but that'd be like 4 days per city or so if I split them up evenly. Would that be enough time for a city like Prague or Budapest?

            Yes, although I did it by doing 5 nights in each city and 1 day trip from each. Bratislava from Vienna, and Cesky Krumlov from Prague.
            I might have liked a bit more time in Prague but it was enough time for Vienna.
            I didn't go to Budapest but I plan on going there my next trip

              I did 2 weeks last year. I reccomend doing more cities and taking the train. I did Prague, Cesky Krumlov, Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest. 1 day in Bratislava was plenty, 2 days in Vienna is about right. We rented a car and it was a HUGE mistake. There is literally zero parking in Prague or Budapest. We paid more to park in Bratislava then we did for our AIrbnb. Definitely take the train.

        bro they're just mid size cities, you're good for "soaking" for just a couple days each. maybe one day more for vienna, if you're an opera sperg.

    I actually just did this a few months ago, except I also added Salzburg in between. Loved it.

    Prague, Vienna, and Budapest were all designed to look the same and have similar styles. Going to each in the same trip is peak American moronation.

      This might be the most moronic take I've ever read on Trv. Besides the fact that all 3 cities are on a river, they look nothing alike. Show me a building in Prague that looks like the Hungarian parliament building? These 3 cities were built hundreds of years apart using vastly different styles. Old town Prague has a giant medieval castle in the middle of it. All of old town Prague was built in the 11th century. Most of Vienna was built 700 years later. The Opera House in Vienna was built in like 1860.

        I actually get what the stranger you are replying to meant

        I suppose if you were coming all the way from the US it may make sense to fly somewhere entirely different like eg Rome or Barcelona

        Just to get a bit more variety of Europe

        At the end of the day these cities are obviously very different and this stranger over simplified things but you could argue you could do other things for the sake of variety if that's what you are after

        They are called sister cities all redone during the Hapsburg empire.

          Prague's sister city was Beijing China until 2019. It doesn't mean they look alike. And Budapest looks nothing like Vienna. There is no building on earth that could be confused with the Hungarian parliament building. Most of Budapest is Neo-Gothic. Vienna is nearly all Baroque. It looks like one big opera house.

            I never knew Beijing was part of the Hapsburg Empire.

              There's a lot you don't know if you think Vienna and Budapest look similar. Budapest is a mix of so many styles. You see Ottoman, gothic, and soviet buildings. There is a giant israeli quarter. Vienna has none of that.

    Cty hopping like this is a shit way to travel. Think if your trip in terms of experiences, as opposed to ticking off cities.
    I.e. think, can you fit in the following to your trip:
    >cycling day
    >hike
    >beach/lake day
    >getting fricked up day
    >historical / learning day
    >event day

    You'd also want to ensure you hit places which help you see different aspects of the region, i.e. developing an appreciation of
    >food/cuisine
    >culture
    >history
    >fashion
    >music
    ,etc

    Central Europe can potential be defined by:
    >Tatry Mountains (Zakopane for example)
    >Danube (Maybe a cruise?)
    >Vienna's high culture (palaces, museums)
    >Cheap beer and party (getting fricked up in Prague)
    >Industrial heritage (Silesia)
    >World Wars (Krakow/Auschwitz)
    ,etc

    From here we can divise an itinerary if we consider decent travel routes:
    >3 nights in Krakow with Auschwitz, Schlinder's Museum, Nowa Huta, getting fricked up in Kazimierz, cycling to Tyniec/cycling aroud Ojcow
    >2 nights in Zakopane doing some hiking and soaking up mountain vibes
    >Night in Ostrava with an industrial day trip
    >Train to Prague/Vienna
    >2/3 nights soaking up high cultural stuff. Vienna for classy twist and Prague for party twist.
    >Austrian public transport is ultra amazing (Obb Go is ridiculously amazing) so you could sidequest out to the mountains quite easily)
    >Train/Wizzair flight to Budapest (central hub of airline and short distance = cheap regular flights)
    >3 nights in Budapest, including a day chilling in thermal baths
    >Potential night in a hotel on Belaton lake so you can chill on the beach for a bit?

    Think to yourself what you're actually going to come away with from your trip, and how your different activities and destinations complement each other.
