January in central europe

Its alittle last minute but my wife and I would like to visit central europe in mid jan 2020 for 2 weeks. Would love to have some inputs.
Tentatively we are looking at Vienna, Prague and if time permits, Budapest too.

1) are chrismas/winter marketplace readily available?
2) daylight will be shorter, will it compromise the operating hours for restaurants and attractions?
3) any nice place or town to check out? Would love if someone could guide us on a possible itinerary

1) by mid -Jan most likely no. They usually run till first weekend of January max

2) yes. Check the specific hours beforehand.

3) depends on your style of travel and interests. Cities are ok for walking around (museums, cafes, churches etc). But being mid- Jan and dead of winter, Europe can be a cold, dark and miserable looking place.
