Prague or Budapest as day trip from Vienna?

We are visiting Vienna this Christmas. We were thinking of making a day trip to Budapest or Prague, but do not know which offers more to see & do in a day at Christmas. Also, which is easiest to train from Vienna and get to the city center?

Hello Jimni87

Well they are both easily reached by train but a day trip to Prague is just too long to undertake IMO you will be spending 9 hours on the train in the same day versus 6 if you decide on Budapest.

Both actually need an overnight but if you are checking off places on your travel list then Budapest would be your better option.

For some alternate day trips from Vienna you might want to consider Sopron, Hungary a nice little town easily reached by train from Vienna or Bratislava or even if you grab the early train and late train back Salzburg is quite a nice city too and unless you are a big Mozart fan most of the highlights can be seen in a day.
