My husband and I are planning our belated honeymoon!
We’ve come up with Vienna, Austria and Paris, France for sure… with maybe a night or two in Munich Germany in between. I think we’ll probably do Vienna first and take the rail to Munich then a day or two later take the rail to Paris. We’re planning on about 15 days total for the trip in July.
Has anyone gone to these places? What was your experience? Any must-sees you’d recommend or suggestions you have?
Also I would like to have a “honeymoon shoot” while we’re in Paris, so if you happen to know of any photographers there that you like please let me know!

@6598731ssfse3: I’ve been to Paris twice and studied in Vienna for a semester, it’s magical. What time of year will you be going? What types of things do you like to do? There are many wonderful museums in Vienna, and of course the opera house is to die for. It’s the cheapest way to see the Vienna Philharmonic. I would also eat as many pastries as possible in both places. My favorite in Vienna is apfelkuche (apple cake, mmmm).

Paris is amazing! If it were me I’d spend the entire time there.
Personally, I would skip Munich. I lived there for a while and its not my favorite place.

@MsCarabiner: I will be in Vienna and Paris in July of this summer. We both really love museums, historical monuments, people watching, and we’d like to do lots of eating! Although I am a pescetarian so I am worried about whether it will be hard finding meals I can eat in both Vienna and Paris. Do you speak German or French? I don’t speak either and I don’t know if that’ll be an issue or not. I joined LiveMocha.com to see if I can learn some basics, but it’s going very slow for me.

@6598731ssfse3: There is an overnight train from Paris to Munich where one can book couples carriages. It’s absolutelty lovely taking it as it saves you a day of travel (taking the train in the evening, sleep, wake up in another city). I would highly recommend it! Munich is nice by the way, why didn’t you like it MrsWishyWashy? It has some very romantic spots and one can visit castle Neuschwanstein from there, for example… 🙂

@6598731ssfse3: do you guys like wine at all because you could also stop in beaune/dijon on the way since it’s only a few hours outside of paris. we were in beaune for our first anniversary and it was quite romantic 🙂

Vienna is lovely in the summer, although maybe very, very hot. We visited the castles and castle gardens, they’ve got some nice museums with guided tours (not usually a guided tour fan…) and if it’s real hot a dip in the river is ahmaaazing. Bring your bathing suit for sure!
Paris is hard to go wrong. Buy a metro/museum pass and use that to go most places like the Lourve, Centre Pompidou, etc… If you walk you will just run into famous places all over. Of course visit the Eiffel Tower and if you are lucky you can find one of the hidden grocery stores in the city and get some bread, wine and cheese for a picnic in front of the Eiffel Tower. We took a day to visit versailles as well to see the hall of mirrors and the gardens.
Have fun!! If you wanna pay for a train ticket/hotel for me from Zürich i’d love to come shoot a honeymoon session. 😉

I don’t know about Munich, but Vienna and Paris are magical. I’ve to Vienna in winter with all the Christam markets and decorations, and it was fantastic. And Paris.. well, you can’t go wrong.
Don’t worry about the food, I’m a vegetarian and had no problem at all. Nearly everywhere they speak English or even have the menu translated!
I’m sure you’ll have a great time!

I live in Munich, and its a great city…But for me it just doesn’t have the ‘charm’ of other cities like Vienna (lived there for 3years)… That said… The surrounding areas are gorgeous… Garmisch is a nice daytrip from here… You can ride up to the top of the highest mountain (zugspitze) early in the day, then come down and spend the rest of the day at Eibsee..which is one of my favorite parts of Germany 🙂 And of course Neuschwanstein is also worth a visit. And if your honeymoon shoot in Paris doesn’t work out, I’d love to do one with you here! (I’m aphotographer).
Have you considered spending a few days in Prague? Its an amazing city
