Salzkammergut, Grossglockner, and Bodensee

Jump to last reply

We are putting together a driving trip to Salzkammergut, Grossglockner, and Bodensee in June 2016. Our interests are in wandering through lovely towns and villages, looking at beautiful scenery, castles, churches, museums, any points of interest, walking, eating, drinking, stopping for coffee, etc. My sister and BIL will be traveling with us and they like to sail... I'm wondering if sail boats can be rented.

We've been to (and loved) Salzburg, Berchtesgaden, Innsbruck so we'll probably pass them by this time.

We plan to stay in Hallstatt for several nights -- possibly 6 if there's enough in the area to do. It doesn't seem to be the most centrally located village but it's so pretty that I can't resist it. We will probably skip the salt mines as we've be to the ones in Berchtesgaden. Some places I've looked at visiting in the area (not in any particular order) include:

Hallstatt -- ice caves, museum
St Wolfgang - Schafbergbahn
Bad Ischl - Kaiservilla
Gmunden - ceramics
Schloss Ort
Mondsee
Attersee
Gosau/Gosausee
Schladming
Grundlsee, Toplitzsee, Kammersee
St. Gilgen -- gondola lift

From there we'd move on to Lofer, Austria for a few nights to visit:

Schloss Hohenwerfen (do ice caves here or forget about it if we see the ones near Hallstatt)
Zell amSee
Heiligenblut
Grossglockner
Edelweissspitze and Franz-Josephs-Höhe side trips
Krimml waterfall

And from there drive to Meersburg for several nights (have not started researching much here) for:

Mainau
Stein am Rhein
Lindau

I've allotted a total of 15 nights for these three areas. I'd like to know how might you split this up time-wise in each place and if there are places/things of interest that I'm overlooking.

Thanks in advance for any direction or ideas you can provide!
