Itinerary Help for Vienna-Sazlburg

Jump to last reply

Hello Travellers,

Need some itinerary help for an upcoming 9 days travel in Austria. We are travelling second time to Europe from Asia, and are Christians (mentioning it as we are travelling during the Easter weekend, would not say no to attending some part of the church service on easter)

We are not much of museum and palace lovers, as we had a over dose of it in France and Italy trip, but like village, scenic landscapes etc.

Day 1: 25th March (Good Friday ) Reach Vienna airport at 9:00 AM

Check in the hotel. And rest of the day follow as much as possible according to the walking tour guide bigboytravel.com/europe/…

Day 2: 26th March Saturday If anything is left out from the walking tour guide, we visit them and do the Ringstrasse Tram tour . bigboytravel.com/europe/…

Visit Easter markets

Day 3: 27th March - EASTER SUNDAY:

Leave to Bad Ischl where we have a booking for 3 nights. Should we go to Bad Ischl on easter day or should we go to Salzburg? From a Easter perspective,which one would be the best place to go directly?

Should we go to Sazlburg directly and then visit the easter markets or so, and then take a bus to Bad Ischll in the night for our stay?

Day 4: 28th March - Easter Monday - Trip to HALLSTAT in the morning? And later in the afternoon visit Gosau in the evening? Back to Bad Ischl for the night

Day 5: 29th March - Tuesday - Trip to Wolfsgang and the nearby villages? Or can you suggest something which would be much better. We are totally open to ideas.

Day 6: 30th March - Wednesday - Take bus early morning to Salzburg ( 2 nights accomodation is reserved).

Just go and see the Salzburg city and the old town for the day

Day 7: 31th March - Thursday - Any suggestions for day trip?? Obersalzberg, Königsee and the town of Berchtesgaden????

Day 8. 1st April - Friday - Checkout and take train to Munich

Just roam around in the city

Day 9: 2nd th April - Saturday - Afternoon Flight back home.

We also dont want to rush to see everything, but would prefer logical reasonable things to visit.

Any help is really appreciated.

    Day 2. Skip the Ringstrasse Tram Tour. I live in Vienna and had complimentary tickets for the tour, and I came away thinking that even my time had been wasted. For €8 you receive a headset from a bored transit operator, and then are stuck for the next 30 minutes craning to see one building or another over the tour buses also on the Ring, or having to make do with a picture of the building on the monitor. In one instance the information is factually incorrect, but since tourists are the audience...

    You can enjoy the same tour by yourselves on the 1 and 2 Trams (for €2,30, the price of a ticket), hopping off and on at will. This is one of the many DIY guides to the buildings (including former city palaces that aren't mentioned on the other tour). https://www.wien.info/en/vienna-for/sports/cycling/suggestions-routes.

    There are only three main Easter Markets in Vienna; one on the grounds of Schloss Schönbrunn, and two relatively close to one another at Freyung/Am Hof. All of them are pleasant, but if you are short on time the markets at Freyung/Am Hof are within the Inner Stadt and are, at least in my opinion, the prettier (especially Freyung). Check the hours.

    Throughout your travel over the Easter holidays (Thursday through Monday) you will likely find early and all day closures, with practically nothing open on Easter Sunday and Easter Monday. Make reservations for meals or you could be disappointed, especially in smaller places like Bad Ischl and Hallstatt.
