Advice wanted for travelling in and around the Budapest/Vienna/Bratislava area in late November.
I’m considering going to central Europe between 19th and 27th November, potentially flying in or out of Budapest, Vienna and/or Bratislava. Is it easy to simply choose my incoming and outgoing flights now and book the first couple of nights accommodation, and then book subsequent trains, buses, hostels and hotels as I go along? Is it easy enough with only English? is it easy to cross the border from one country to another? And is there any location you recommend I real must see? Thanks!

If you book everything online it's very easy and all of the bus, train etc sites have English translation. Border's are difficult to spot and you have usually gone through them before you realise that you have changed country. Mu persona recommendation would be for the Spanish Riding School in Vienna. Have a great trip
The weather might not be best.
The original poster is hopefully enjoying their time in Europe. Replying of anyone looking for same information later -
Yes, in these countries it would be easy and not too expensive to buy train ticket and book local accommodation as you go. Especially during November which is a low season. Of course weather is worse, this year we had really cold 2 weeks, but last year it was not as cold. Many local sites are not in English but Google translate is your friend. At main train stations in city you can always find someone who speaks English.
