Halstatt to Grossglockner Rd.

Jump to last reply

We have 6 days and a car to cover Melk, Halstatt and any towns of interest.
Day 1 we will depart Vienna and probably visit Korneuburg Castle (outside of Vienna) , then Krems and then spend the night in Durnstein.

Day 2 we will do Melk Abbey and hopefully do the bike/boat trip. (ovrnite @ Durnstein)

Day3-We could stay in the area another day or head towards Hallstatt

Day 4-If we didn't go to Halstatt the previous day then go this day.

Day 5-Is it possible to do the Grossglockner Rd, or part of it as a day trip from Halstatt? If so, is it best to go back to Halstatt or stay somewhere on the Rd because then the on day 6 we will go to Hitler's Eaglenest and then spend the night in Salzburg, actually we will finish our trip with a couple of days in Salzburg.

I feel good about day 1 and 2. I don't know that we need another day in Durnstein?? I'd like to do the Grossglockner Rd. but it looks like maybe we need to start in Lienz. Or could we go to Halstatt on day 3 & 4 then on day 5 drive the grossglockner Rd and spend the night somewhere enroute. Then on Day 6 go to Hitler's Eagles Nest.
