Jump to last reply


Please help me on the below..I have made a rough itinerary for my Austria trip on the 25th of October.I have just 2 nights / 3 days at my disposal..Let me know if the below plan is feasible or not and if i have included the best tourist spots...

Guided tours on the 26/10/2012

Untersberg - cable car
motorcycle tour to eagles nest (half day)60km


transfer to Salzburg railway station to catch a train to zell am see to view the snow in Kitzsteinhorn

We are planning on spending half a day there,and getting back to Salzburg by early evening to enjoy a segway city tour and get back to the hotel for leisure


Check out early in the morning to catch the train to Vienna..Transfer to the railway station wanted.

awaiting your inputs on the above..

    Not very realistic.

    In late October, days have become considerably shorter, so you can do only so much.

    On 26/10 I would skip the Untersberg. Although the Eagles Nest (its real name is Kehlstein) is not my preferred destination, it's OK. You may waste some time waiting for the (mandatory) bus from the Obersalzberg parking lot to the elevator, which brings you to the Kehlsteinhaus. The views are much grander from there than the Untersberg, thus my recommendation to skip same. If you want to have a great view and ride a gondola lift, skip the Kehlstein and take the the lift from the Koenigsee parking lot to the top of the Jenner. In any event, you better have a fallback Plan B in case the weather is not clear and the mountains are in the clouds or fog. Not sure there will be raft and canoe tours running in late October.


    The Kitzsteinhorn is some distnce from Zell am See. You have to take a bus from Zell to Kaprun to get the lift to the glacier. Again, strictly a good weather trip. There are some discounted train tickets available. Check these out.

    Is the Vienna Segway tour running in the dark?

    to be so negative, but that's life.
