Itinerary suggestions for Austria in 5 days

Jump to last reply

My father and I will be flying into to Munich on a Wednesday later this month. We plan to go right from the airport to the train station, and catch a train to Austria. We've been to Munich and it is a convenient arrival city for us, and it was also available for frequent flier mile redemption. So now the quesiton becomes, 'how do we use our time?' We leave on the following Tuesday out of Munich.

we picked Austria because neither of us have been there before. We both like "old Europe." As example, we both find Florence, Bruges, Gent and Bamberg to be be great towns/cities for us. It seems like Salzburg and Vienna can offer similar experiences to those, but offer new ones as well.

So, we arrive in Munich around 9:00 on Wednesday. My guess is we can be in Salzburg (if that is our first stop) by mid-afternoon. We fly out of Munich on the following Tuesday, so my plan is to get back to Munich on Moday, stay overnight and then catch the train to the airport. That leaves us Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday to fill up.

We won't have a car and will use trains and buses to get around augmented by taxis if need be.

We enjoy walking around and seeing building styles, church interiors, squares, bars (beers), cafes and an infrequent museum. We like just seeing things.

So any suggestions on how we should use the time availble to us in Austria? Wed, Thur, Fri nights in Salzburg and Sat and Sun in Vienna? Or is Vienna not worth that much time?

Any specific sites or experiences for "not to miss" in either location or in between?

Our flights and length of stay are firm, and any advice on how to fill our time is much appreciated.
