Hello all!

All things being equal, any advice about spending the 4 days before Christmas in either A) Prague/Vienna (2.5 Days Each), B) London, or C) Another European destination?

I have 4 days in transit before I head Stockholm to New York and would love any suggestions.

Any help would be much appreciated!!

Worth stopping for 8-12 hours on a layover? I forgot if it's easy to get from the train to the center, or other tourist attractions easily.
I've been there once before, and traveling with kids this time, but it seems like a nice opportunity.
