We are a couple travelling to salzburg with our 1.5 year old child and are interested in nature and scenic routes. However, we are planning to arrive in salzburg on a train rather than car. After reading a few posts, I have thought of basing ourselves in St. Wolfgang and take day trips. I am not interested in the SOM tour and hence planning on skipping it.
Salzburg itinerary as follows:
Day 1: arrive mid morning or noon from vienna. Either visit Fortress Hohensalzburg or drive to St. Wolfgang.
Day 2: day trip to berchtesgaden
Day 3: Day trip to Hallstat
1) Can we do St; gilgen and wolfgangsee on the first day if we don't visit the fortress?
2) Any alternative place to visit in salzburg instead of going to berchtesgaden?
3) is St. wolfgang a good base for these day trips? or should i opt for fuschl or bad ischl?
4) is driving down from vienna to salzburg a better option as opposed to the train journey? ( we are not renting the car for the duration we are in vienna).
P.S: we are in austria during the first week of june
Thanks a lot!Edited: 2 years ago
