Also, anything I must do/eat in HK? I'll be traveling there at the end of Jan.

Hide-M munich for shopping. I went on some tours and stuff but I would suggest just drinking lots of beer. There's so much to try. Schweinhaxe (pork shank) with a beer and potato dumplings is kind of awesome. The science museum (Deutsches Museum) is very large and brought out the kid in me. For something much more somber but very powerful and worthwhile, go to the Dachau concentration camp memorial (need to take a train). If I visit again I'd want to go to the BMW factory/museum.
Salzburg is one of the most beautiful places I've been in Europe - I went around this time of year too. Definitely walk up to Hohensalzburg Castle and climb all the towers to get epic views. I'm not sure the admission price is worth it but there is a Mozart's Birthplace exhibit/house thing that is fairly interesting. There's also some special desserts (Nockerl and Mozartkugel) that I never got around to trying.
Vienna might be a good option if you're looking for another city nearby.
Alright since someone in RFT said this thread needs some love, here goes:
I'll be in Stavanger, Norway second week of September for a conference, followed by 10 days of "working from home in Europe", and then a week in Paris for another conference. I'll try to arrive in Norway early for two 1-day hikes: Pulpit's Rock and Kjerag.
Post Norway, current plan is to go to Copenhagen for 1-2 days, but mostly this is because I'm trying to get a seat at Noma. Then Nice, Menton, Aix-en-Provence, Lyon, in some order. Debating if I should replace one of the above (Copenhagen?) with some area in the alps. I've been to the Interlaken region of the Swiss alps; never been to any of the places above.
Comments, recommendations on food/coffee/hikes are welcome. I already know what I'm going to do in Paris (eat and shop), so I'm good on that front. [I know I'm setting a pretty tight schedule, but I'm greedy and I've done this kind of travelling before.]
And if anyone lives in the above places and wants to meet up, let me know!
