Salzburg and Surrounding Areas

Jump to last reply

We're planning a trip to "the Alps" regions of Austria, Italy, and Switzerland the latter part of August and early September. We''ve gotten some valuable ideas from guidebooks, combing the many TRs from Fodorites, as well as various threads, We appreciate all the information. However, we still have a few remaining questions to which we'd appreciate help.

We'll have 25 days in the area,, after which we'll spend a few days in Paris en route home. We're flying into Munich and renting a car, our preferred manner of travel since do not intend to visit big cities. The only mid-sized town we'll visit is Salzburg. We were there on a former trip, but the weather was so rainy and foggy that we could not appreciate the town, nor the surrounding mountains.

We'd like to stay in Salzburg Old Town 2 or 3 nights. Our intention is to choose a hotel with parking; not drive in the town. Any suggestions would be appreciated. We'd like the experience of staying in the town, having a later dinner, or strolling the streets at night. After staying in Salzburg city itself, we'd like to choose a location in the surrounding area, possibly St. Gilgen, and stay 3 or so more nights to do some day trips. We're wondering if Hallstatt is a day trip, or is that a side trip all its own, suggesting an overnight?

We're planning to spend one night in Zell Am See, hoping to drive the Grossglockner the following day. Of course, in all of our planning, weather is, unfortunately, the one thing we can't control! And we're wondering what things there are to do for a Plan B in case we run into inclement weather.

We're limiting this thread to the Austria part of our trip, intending to post other questions on Italy or Switzerland. We appreciate any tips and or suggestions that anyone familiar with the area can share. Thanks so much!
