Vienna and Salzburg itinerary advice

Jump to last reply

We would like advice on our upcoming trip to Austria. Four of us plan to see sights, but also want time to savor the cities. We love the architecture that Europe has to offer. We love to walk/hike, so walking is not an issue.

Vienna: will be arriving by train from Munich. Staying in Inner Stadt for 3 days. Plan to take underground to Inner Stadt and walk to hotel. Must see/do include walk Ringstrasse, see Schonbrunn Palace (allowing half day plus), Hofburg Palace area, Stephansdom Cathedral. If practice session available for Lipizanner Stallions available, great. Sit at cafes and enjoy the delights that are Vienna.

Salzburg: arrive by train from Vienna. Staying just outside city for 3 days. Must see/do include Hohensalzburg Fortress, Salzburg Cathedral, Mirabell Gardens, old city walking and eating. Possible Mozart concert at fortress. No tickets purchased yet. We will use bus system in Salzburg, but are not convinced getting the Salzburg Card is worth it. Is it advisable to just purchase bus tickets as needed, or even a week ticket?

We want to enjoy each city and not make it exhausting. Any advice appreciated. Thanks!
