HELP!!! 7 nights and 8 days in Austria and Prague!

Jump to last reply

Need help!! Me, wife and kid (4 yrs old) are planning a trip to Austria and Prague towards the end of July this year. We land in Vienna on a Friday morning and leave Vienna the next Friday night, giving us 7 nights and 8 days. The following is the tentative itinerary:

Fri - arr Vienna@9 am. Visit Vienna attractions.
Sat - leave Vienna for Prague@ 12pm. Arrive 5 pm (spend an hour at Brno on the way). Evening in Prague
Sun – Visit local Prague attractions. Leave Prague for Salzburg@ 2 pm (spend an hour each at Cesky Krumlov and Linz on the way). Arrive Salzburg @ 8:30 pm
Mon – Day for historical attractions. Visit Salzburg local attractions. Do we need to cover Cable-Car Untersberg?
Tue - Day for the great outdoors. Visit Hallstat, Gousasee lake and Gosau Village + can you recommend any other places with great views/small hikes (doable with the kid)?
Wed - Leave Salzburg for Grossglockner High Alpine Road and then reach Innsbruck@5 pm. Do I need to cover Zell Am See on the way to Grossglockner? Also is Grossglocker High Alpine Road, worth the effort? It is taking almost one full day.
Thu - Innsbruck attractions - Please suggest 'must-do'
Fri - Leave Innsbruck for Vienna@1 pm. Reach Vienna aiport@6:30 pm Can we leave at 11:30 and do Kitzbuhel on the way? Considering that it is a 15 min deviation from Oberdorf on the way back to Vienna for Innsbruck?

Need advice on:
1. Above is doable or very hectic?
2. Whole of Austria is so beautiful and has lots of cable cars/montain railways/ski lifts. Need advice on which 2 cable cars/mountain railways, I can fit into my schedule.
3. We would like to go for 2 or 3 small hikes (doable with the kid).
4. Any ‘must-do’ sights that we are missing.

A note on us:
1. Our interests are outdoors, great views, hikes etc. We are not very much keen on museums, but would appreciate historical buildings and architecture.
2. Will drive around in a self drive - rented car.

Any advice is welcome!
