Prague-Vienna-Budapest in 6 days - how long/what to see?

I'm traveling with a couple friends in December and we're planning on doing Prague, Vienna, and Budapest - arrive in Prague at 2pm on the 13th and leave from Budapest at 5pm on the 19th, with train/bus to and from Vienna in between. We're okay with doing overnight buses/trains and keeping weird hours (staying in hostels) so wasted travel time isn't too much of a concern, but we're trying to figure out how much time we need to spend in each place - is there one city that has more to see than another? What are the major things we need to do?

The general consensus on these fora is that 3 cities in 6 days is 1 too many........

Hello Emily h

Well since it seems you have your arrival and departure cities set let me suggest that you narrow your itinerary down to just 2 Prague and Budapest splitting your time between them and traveling from Prague to Budapest on the overnight train saving you the cost of one nights hotel stay and valuable sightseeing time. Otherwise you will see all 3 but not really experience any of them and with only three short days in each you will still be rushed to take in many sights and sounds, that both have to offer.

As to things to do in Budapest take a look at this thread it should wet your appetite tripadvisor.com/…47239120

Perhaps also take a look at the Things To Do tab on the Budapest page of TA and then come back with any specific questions you may have about sights. tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g274887-Activiti…
