Salzburg or St. Gilgen as Base?

Jump to last reply

Would like some thoughts on best place to base ourselves for 4 nights next June. We are a family of 5 (parents plus kids 14, 12, 9) plus grandparents. We're arriving from Prague via train and will not have a car. Would it be better to rent an apartment in St. Gilgen and day trip out to Salzburg and Berchtesgaden or stay in Salzburg and day trip out to St. Gilgen area and Berchtesgaden? We will be leaving on the 4th day via train to go on to Garmisch for a brief, 2 day visit. We like the idea of being based in St Gilgen and enjoying the lakes, nature, etc.. but wondered if too big of a pain to travel into Salzburg and Berchtesgaden (definitely want to visit Eagles Nest) without a car. Thoughts anyone PLEASE?? Also, if any suggestions on apartment with small kitchen for renting would be great.
