Dresden, Salzburg, Vienna

Jump to last reply

Needs help from German but mostly Austrian Fodorites. Hubs and I and two other traveling companions are finishing a cycle trip Berlin to Dresden on Sept 18, 2015. Although we are physically active generally, our goals for the rest of the trip are to simply drive and/or walk around, drink coffee (or wine or beer), eat chocolate, see some scenery, and not stress out too much with seeing a ton of sights. We have secured a rental car and we plan to drive Dresden to Salzburg (2 nights) and Vienna (2 nights). Will return the rental car in Vienna on Sept 21st and then depart Europe on Sept 22. I KNOW this is just dabbling in both areas, especially Salzburg. We've biked the Wauchau Valley (Melk, etc) and traveled along the Danube by a bicycle. That trip ended in Vienna also.

My questions: How long is a drive time between Dresden and Salzburg and are the roads tricky? Should we dally along the way and see some additional scenery? Never been to Salzburg so need advice on what to do that makes the most sense with slightly less than 48 hours there. Have a car, so we can take that to outskirts, if that is reasonable.. Thought of the Segway tour in Salzburg, just to cover a lot of ground fairly quickly. Should we necessarily purchase the Salzburg Card? Is it cheaper to do so in advance? The beer tasting at Stiegl-Brauwelt was appealing to us. Not too interested in seeing a bunch of Sound of Music sites.

Then, how long to drive to Vienna? What to do with only 1.5 days there. We've been to Vienna and taken horse-drawn carriage tour, visited the Imperial Treasury (loved it!), seen the Lipizzaners horses at practice, eaten Sacher Torte, etc.. Thanks in advance!

PS Our hotels are centrally located in both Salzburg and Vienna.
