Alps: Bavaria vs. Salzkammergut?

Jump to last reply

As some of you know from my previous questions, we are planning a trip to Austria and Czech Republic for mid/late May 2012. We plan to spend a lot of time in Vienna, Prague, CK, and Salzburg, but we also want to see the Alps - we're especially interested in majestic views, light hiking, quaint villages, a Mad Ludwig castle or two, and fun stuff like luge or salt mine rides. (My Texan DH would also like to play in the snow atop a mountain somewhere, but I'm not sure if that will be possible in May). So my question for all you Austria/Bavaria experts is this: if you had 3-4 days to enjoy Alpine beauty, would you rather:

1. stay in the Salzkammergut and see St. Gilgen/Wolfgang, Hallstatt, Berchtesgaden, and Herrenchiemsee,

OR

2. head west to the Garmisch area and see Mittenwald, Zugspitze, Oberammergau/Ettal, and Fussen?

(I'm sure someone will say "Both!" - we could, but we'd have to shave time off of Prague and Vienna. Guess we have to decide which matters more to us, but for now we're thinking just one dose of Alps for now).

What do you think?

Thanks for your help!
