Driving trip in Austria

Jump to last reply

I'll be attending a 3 day conference in Vienna in July of this year and my husband and I are extending the trip to do some sightseeing. We just spent a year living in New Zealand and following that, made a whirlwind trip through Asia, where we saw lots of big cities in a small amount of time. We want to take a slower, more in-depth trip this time and are thinking about a driving trip through Austria. We'll have 16 days (including travel to-from Boston) in total. We love great scenery, art, food, nature, and hiking, as well as heading a bit off the well-trod American-traveler beaten path (one of our favorite spots in Greece was the island of Samos).

The conference will fall toward the end of the trip (we'll have 2 full days and most of another as the conference wraps up around 10am) before heading to an airport the following day. We've given thought to wrapping up in Budapest and flying out from there, but could also explore Vienna environs or south and then fly from Vienna.

Any particular recommendations? We definitely want to drive the Grossglockner High Alpine Road. Thoughts on the Romantic Road?
