5 day itinerary for salzburg and innsbruck area

Jump to last reply

Hello, my wife and i are planning a 4.5 days vacation in and around salzburg and innsbruck area. Unlike my other trips across europe, we are not interested in any museums and history on this trip. We are more interested in enjoying the beautiful views the region has to offer. I have made reservations in a hotel in salzburg which is pretty close to the main train and bus station, so salzburg will be the base location ( my return train is from salzburg).Is that a good idea? Here's my pretty rough itinerary -

Day 1: explore the city, mirabell schloss etc.
Day 2: day trip to salt mine ( hallein or berchtesgaden??) and explore the area
Day 3: day trip to innsbruck (will make a stop at watten for some pictures)
Day 4: any recommendations??
Day 5: chill out in salzburg and take evening train back to Germany.

How sensible and useful is the salzburg card, given my itinerary.
Would really appreciate feedback and suggestions. Thanks
